Makeup Inspiration – Electric Green Smokey Eye

Makeup Inspiration - Electric Green Smokey Eye

This makeup inspirational post was inspired by all of the colors everywhere, that caused me to just wanted color all over my face. I wanted a look that just popped, and stood out. Smokey and electric, this green eye look goes amazingly well with Bite Beauty’s Amuse Bouche lipstick in the shade Eggplant. I’m digging these colors together. There is something so fun about wearing two different statement colors at one time.

I keep the bright green very low on my lid because I didn’t want it to be overboard with the lip color I knew I would be using. I also used a darker almost blackened green on the outer v of the eyes. The bright green is the Makeup Forever Artist Eyeshadow in the shade Acidic Green, and the darker green is the shade Fir Tree Green.

Just as a bit of a note I will let you guys know that this lip color is not showing up true to color in these pictures, nor did it in my Sephora VIB Haul. No matter what settings I used on my camera nothing showed the color accurately. In my opinion it is much more purple toned that what is showing up here. I’m madly in love with this shade though and the formula is heaven!

In this open eye shot you can see that I went a bit dramatic on the lower lash-line. I really wanted to bring some darkness down there. This is a good trick to use when you are using bright colors on the upper lid. You don’t have to make it as dramatic as I have here, do what you are comfortable with. To achieve such darkness I used the Ardency Inn Modster Eyeliner in the Shade Black. This eyeliner is the best eyeliner for the waterline ever! I also smudged Makeup Forever Artist Shadow in the shade Fir Tree Green on the lower lash line as well.

With this eye look I decided to wear House of Lashes lashes in the style Siren.

For my cheeks I bronzed up my skin using the Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil Bronzer. For blush I used a MAC blush in the shade Plum Foolery. To highlight I used the new Urban Decay Afterglow Powder Highlight in the shade Aura.

I dare all of you to embrace color and start wearing it while you are out and about! If you decide to recreate this look, or use some fun colors this spring, take some pictures, and tag me in them on Instagram so I can check them out!
