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.

Quick + Easy Every Day Makeup

I filmed this look today, that being Sunday, as I was running out to do a few errands & wanted to look a little bit more presentable for the outside world. That being said, there are 2 things I’d like to mention. 1)There are MANY days that I go out + feel totally fine without makeup on, I have no problem being a makeup free lady but today I felt like I wanted just a little to even out my skin tone + brighten up my face. 2) You can do this any day, not just Sunday 🙂

This look is insanely easy + quick and anyone can do it. Tinted moisturizer provides some coverage while concealer takes care of those tough spots. Cream highlighter + blush add a soft glow, a little liner + mascara frame the eyes and a simple lip color pulls it all together!
