Shades of Green Tutorial

This post is an Ode to my favorite color. Products Used: NYX Box of Eyeshadows ELF Eyelid Primer in Pearl NYX Eyeshadow Base in White ELF Cream Eyeliner in Black ELF Studio Kohl Eyeliner ELF Lash Extending Mascara ELF Studio Blush in Candid Coral ELF Luscious Liquid Lipstick in Brownie Points ELF Studio Brushes Step 1: Prime your eyelids with an eyeshadow primer such as Elf's Eyelid Primer in Pearl.
Step 2: Use a white base for extra color pop such as the NYX eyeshadow Base in White. Cover the entire eyelid.
Step 3: Take a yellow-green shade such as the one pictured from the NYX Box of Shadows 112 colors palette and gently pat it on the inner corner of your eye.
Step 4:Take a darker green shade and pat right next to the yellow-green shade. Blend well where the two shades meet.
Step 5: Take an even darker shade of green and fill the outer corner of your eye. Blend well where the darker green meets the mid-shade green. Blend the crease line upwards, so it doesn't look so sharp.
Step 6: Take a nude shade that is as close to your skin tone as you can get and apply it as a highlight for your brow bone. Blend downward into the green shades, very lightly.
Step 7: Take a very dark green shade and use it to line your lower lash line.
Step 8: Line your upper lash line with a black eyeliner such as Elf's Cream Eyeliner in Black. Line your water line with black eyeliner as well. (I used Elf's Studio Kohl Eyeliner for that) Coat your eyelashes with black mascara such as Elf's Lash Extending Mascara.
Step 9: Use a coral color on your cheeks such as Elf's Candid Coral Studio Blush. Don't just keep the color on the apples of your cheeks...blend it back and upwards. (Follow your cheekbone structure)
Step 10: Finish up the look with a nude colored lip gloss such as Elf's Luscious Liquid Lipstick in Brownie Points.
And there you have it! What do you guys think?
