Gradient Green Shimmery Smokey Eyes Tutorial

5:07 AM

Hey my loves!
How has your day been so far? Today's tutorial is going to be on this shimmery, super dramatic green eyeshadow look that's especially pretty on brown eyes! When I created this look, I was feeling quite artsy and messy almost and there was quite a bit of cleaning up involved afterwards so as always I suggest you do your eyes first when you're attempting a more dramatic eyeshadow look where you might experience fallout. Now let's get right to it!

Gradient Green Shimmery Smokey Eyes Tutorial
Here's what you'll need:
  1. Matte warm brown eyeshadow
  2. Black eyeshadow primer/creamy black pencil liner
  3. Shimmery medium green eyeshadow
  4. Shimmery taupe eyeshadow
  5. Shimmery champagne/white eyeshadow
  6. Matte black eyeshadow
  7. Black pencil liner
  8. Eyeliner(liquid/gel)
  9. Mascara
  10. Falsies(optional)
Step 1
Blend in the matte brown shadow into your crease and a little above it. This will serve as our transition shade.

Step 2
Pack and blend the black eyeshadow primer all over your mobile eyelids. You can use a creamy black pencil for this step if you don't own a black eyeshadow primer.

Using the same matte brown we used in step 1, blur and blend the black liner we just applied.

Step 9
At this point, I was done with all the shadow application and realized there was black eyeshadow fallout all the way down on my cheeks haha so I cleaned everything up with a makeup wipe and then applied foundation, following the angle of my lower lashline, towards the tail of my brows.
