Green eye makeup has been quite a thing on Instagram. Most people are unsure if green eye shadow could be carried off on a regular day but trust me you just have to choose the right shade and it would do wonders from an office look to a party look. If you are pale, you can could choose darker shades and if you are on the darker side, bright shades would look great.
In the look that I created, I was hesitant to use lot of green as I was already sporting the green lens. So, I used bronze and copper along with the green which was the base shadow and extended towards the outward corners.
Primer : Farsali Unicorn Essence
Foundation : Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation + Makeup Forever Ultra HD Foundation
Highlighter on the cheek bones and Nose Bridge : Becca Champagne
Blush : Benefit Dandelion
MAC Prep+Prime Powder
For my eye makeup, I used the TOO FACED Chocolate Gold Eye Shadow Palette which is made with 100% cocoa powder and real gold.
Eye Primer : Bobbi Brown Eye Primer
Base : Rollin’ Dough from the palette
Green : Money bags from the palette blended evenly around the outer corner of the eyes
Bronze : Old Money soft color used in the inner corner of the eyes and blended towards the middle.
Copper : Gold dipped in the middle of the eyelid, used it to let a light shade between 2 dark shade.
Eye Liner : Colorbar Liquid Liner in Black
Eye Mascara : Benefit Roller Lash Mascara

Smokey eyes bring up the glamour quotient in no time.
I absolutely love it and when it comes to a signature makeup look, smokey eye has always been my go to. It appears a lot difficult but is definitely not to hard to do. I have improved with time learning from my mistakes and here I shall explain the whole process in 7 simple steps –
Steps I followed to get this look –
Step 1: Prepped and primed the eyelids with the Urban Decay Eyeshadow primer potion.
Step 2: Used Bae from Huda Beauty Rose Gold palette as a base.
Step 3: Used a tape at both ends to get the cut right.I used the dark brown bossy shade from Huda Beauty Rose Gold palette and applied it to the outer corner and then took it further into the crease to create the depth.
Step 4: I applied the shade Smog in gold from the Urban Decay eyeshadow box to the middle of the lid and the shade blackout in the outer corner till I was happy with the intensity.
Step 5: I applied the gold eyeshadow to the lower lashline and followed up with black liner on the lower water line.
Step 6: Then I used Chambor kohl on the upper lashline as an eyeliner.
Step 7: Lastly, I loaded it with Benefit Roller Lash mascara.
I have a more dramatic smokey look coming up very soon on the blog!Stay tuned!
Dressing in vintage style clothing for a themed event or personal fashion is always a fun thing to do. While the authentic Victorian look necessitates a full skirted dress and a corset fitted blouse, it is hard to carry it off unless the theme of the party itself is Victorian(After who wants to wear a women’s civil war dress). So, I styled it a little differently with the hairstyle and makeup going back to the 19th Century and wearing a gown which has enough flair and volume to make it look Victorian.

Like every other makeup enthusiast, I too buy a lot of makeup products impulsively and then dump them away one fine day only to realize they have gone beyond their expiry dates. Lately, I have been consciously keeping a watch on what products I use more often and the findings are no surprises. They are the ones I use for my daily makeup to work. This is a challenge which many women face while selecting the right makeup for a corporate environment. You don’t want to overdo it yet want to flaunt a fresh natural face. There’s so much to learn about such kind of no makeup – makeup that it can be overwhelming. My simple war cry is “Less is more”!Here’s a look which is very easy to recreate and perfect for the workplace –
Basic products used which are available in the same colors with almost all the brands.
I chose to keep the face clean – No blush, highlighter or contouring!
