makeup tutorial: for gorgeous greens

This is the second tutorial in the eye color series, and I thought it was appropriate to do green eyes on St. Patrick's day :)
So, remember the chart I made for the blue eyes tutorial? Well, I made another one for green eyes:

These are the colors I think look best with green eyes, the ones that really make them pop. On with the tutorial!

Products used:
Revlon Creme Shadows in Not Just Nudes
Lancome Quad
Milani Baked Shadow
Jordana Eyeshadow Duo in Purple Smokes
Physicians Formula Gel Eyeliner
Wet n Wild eyeliner in dark brown
Wet n Wild color icon jumbo pencil in pixie
Covergirl all-in-one mascara

start with clean eyes.

step 1: prime your lids with any shadow base you have.

step 2: take a shimmery cream color...

and pat it on the lower half of your eyelid.

step 3: take a shimmery gold shadow and pat it onto the upper half of your lid up to your crease

 step 4: sweep a medium-purple/lilac shade into your crease. (these photos do not do this color justice, it's gorgeous!)

step 5: with a dark plum-y/purple color, define your outer corner and the outer part of your crease.

step 6: line the outer part of your lid with purple. I used gel eyeliner, but you can use anything. Also, smudge a tiny bit into your lower lashline.

step 7: line your waterline with dark brown and highlight your inner corner with a shimmery champagne color.

step 8: curl your lashes and apply mascara.

Your done!

I hope this was helpful for all you green eyed girls out there! Next up, hazel :)
