Holiday Head to Toe: Green & Gold!

Remember the look I created before for an outfit put together by Eldy's Pocket? Here is another one to go with a gorgeous green and gold holiday party ensemble!

Step 1: Prime the eyelid for eyeshadow using a white or skin colored cream eye shadow: MAC Paint Pot in Painterly
This will help the color of the eye shadow you put on afterwards stand out more and it will prevent creasing.

Step 2: Put a gold colored eye shadow in the tear duct area, the inner 3rd of the eyelid and the inner 3rd of the lower lash line: Urban Decay Blitz

Step 3: Take a piece of tape and place it at the corner of your eye so that there is straight line between the corner and the end of your eyebrow. Use a sparkly deep green colored eye shadow and put it next to the gold eye shadow to the end of the eyelid almost up to the tape: Urban Decay Junkie

Step 4: Take a black eye shadow and put it at the corner of your eye right against the tape, overlapping the green: Urban Decay Black Market

Step 5: Blend all of the eye shadows together with a clean brush.

Step 6: Remove the tape and clean up any fall out with make up remover. Take the green eye shadow you used before and run it along the lower lash line, not overlapping the gold.

Step 7: Line the water-line with a black eyeliner. Coat your lashes with mascara and then apply dramatic false lashes: Josie Maran Eyeliner in Black Raven, Ardell false lashses + L'Oreal Telescopic mascara

Step 8: Apply foundation, concealer and blush- also powder to set your makeup: Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua in 20, Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch concealer in Radiant, NARS blush in Torrid.
Apply your foundation and concealer last so that you can clean up any eye shadow that falls onto your face before hand.

Step 9: Apply a nude lipstick and a nude gloss to create an understated lip:
With such dramatic eyes and outfit, downplaying the lips will keep everything balanced: Revlon Lip Butter in Creamsicle and BUXOM lip gloss in Samantha
