Not Even a Little Bit Irish…

But that doesn’t mean I don’t have you covered when it comes to green eye looks to wear out tonight! Hopefully these videos inspire you to rock some color on your eyes whether you’re enjoying a quiet boiled dinner at home or hitting the town for some adult beverages. Have fun + of course, be safe!

Be bold with this Dramatic green cat eye.

This may have been filmed during holiday season but that doesn’t mean it isn’t a gorgeous green smokey look that can be worn anytime!

If you like a more subtle approach to green that’s still interesting + very wearable, go with this look.

Burgundy Smokey Eye

Ok ok, I know. I have been doing a ton of smokey eye tutorials recently. But honestly, doesn’t this time of year just call for this kind of eye look?! While it’s chilly + dark I like to pile on all the eyeshadow + liner. This look is all about matte brown-red + burgundy shades + a long lasting plum lip. Something a little different for the holiday party circuit but really beautiful and really easy. The lipstick I used, CoverGirl’s Euphoria, is insanely long wearing + leaves a lovely stain on the lips when it does wear off. I’m a huge fan, and not just because my girl Katy Perry wore it in one of her CG ads. I tried to make the skin glowy, using MAC’s Face and Body which has a nice natural sheen to it. I packed the highlighter on, using both a cream and powder + went over my cream blush with a highlighter blush.

Perfect Holiday Green Smokey Eye

I’m on a real green kick these days. I think it might be the impending Christmas Holiday or simply that I am just really drawn to it at the moment. Green is usually not my go to color but I have been absolutely loving the way it looks on my brown eyes! This look is perfect for a Holiday party or evening out + is very, very simple. If you’re not into green you can use any color you’d like! The technique can be applied to any color – you just need a dark base, a transition shade + your lid color. The key is to apply + blend, apply + blend – you can never blend too much! It is crucial for creating a smokey look that doesn’t come off as a black eye.

Upside Down Blue Smokey Eye

Well that’s a mouthful! This look focuses on a bright blue eyeliner on the lower lashline + features soft definition and cat eye on the upper lid. It’s an unusual but interesting way to wear color on your eyes + a method I like to employ often. You don’t have to have the same products as I do – I am showing you a technique that can be achieved with any colors + products you have! Have fun, be bold. Enjoy!

Smokin’ Hot

I’m really having a Gray moment. Maybe it’s all the dreary New England weather but who cares, I’m loving it. So much so that I had to paint my nails Essie’s Smokin’ Hot AND film a tutorial for a gray smokey eye. Smokey eyes really aren’t as complicated as everyone thinks they are – you just need a few shades of the same color & to blend the heck out of it! I hope this tutorial is helpful & inspires smokey eye confidence. I used gray but you can really use any color your heart desires – purple is one of my favorites!
