I will admit that I am OBSESSED with military/army/olive green colored everything. I have this color in every way shape and form. Shoes, shirts, pants, scarves, jackets and even make-up in this color. I love it because the green brings out my green eyes, compared to the sometimes brown/hazel eyes. Combining it with gold adds the perfect touch. Recently I have been using a bunch of my new products to create my Green Gold look and have been loving the way it turns out.
I wear this look with lots of my green pieces, but I sometimes wear it with a complimentary outfit. Its great for work, going out or if toned down it can be worn for an everyday look.
Fair warning- I am not a professional make-up artist so this is NOT the most perfect or precise make-up look in the world, this is just what I do :0)
To get this look I used these products:
I started with priming my eyelid. My eyes have been super dry and cracked so this helps keep them a little less flakey looking. The one I used is one from my Too Faced Beauty Blogger kit its called Shadow Insurance and Anti Crease Eye Shadow Primer. I like it because it has a little tint to it which eliminates having to conceal my lids.
Next I used this eyeshadow palette from Ulta and I used the color Romance. This was used all over my lid to just get a good base. I didn’t want this look to be too Packer Colored so this help add more color and more warmth to my lid. I used just a basic eyeshadow brush from ELF to apply a generous amount.
Once I had a good base coat I went in with my new Loreal eyeshadows in the color Golden Sage & Eternal Sunshine. Both of these have a little bit of glitter or shimmer to them. I applied the sage to the outer corner of my eye as well as the middle. This is a little more Emerald than I thought so I do go over it with a little brown. I use the golden color on the inner corner and fade it out into the center of my eye. This helps bring light and extra shimmer to the center. Once I have both of these shades on, I take a crease brush from ELF and take more of the same base color and lightly dust it over the sage. This helps make it more of a military/army green.
I don’t like to wear fake lashes for an everyday look, so for this look I used my new Ulta Voluminous Mascara. I applied 2 coats of this to make my lashes long, full and jet black. Once my mascara is dry, I apply my black liquid liner from ELF. I really need to replace mine, this one had a few clumps in it so my line isn’t perfect. I like to add a little wing to my lid, although I can never get mine to match, nor perfect.
For the lower lash line, I used my new NYX pencil. This has a little shimmer to it but not over the top glitter.
And Voila! I am done! A little mascara on the bottom lashes, little lip color and blush and I am ready to go. I hate taking selfies so excuse the goofy face. I love the way that these colors on my eyes make my eyes look green compared to my usual hazel.
