Tutorial: Popping green eyes!

Hello everybody!

Today it's time for popping some green eyes! :) I realize that this look is probably not wearable for everyone as a daytime look but I'm sure you can wear it on a night out though.

Different shades of purple, mauve and pink are perfect tones to use on green eyes, so that's exactly what we are going to do. :)

Recommendation: Since purple fallout is probably not the cutest thing you can adorn your face with I highly recommend you to put on your base after you've done the eyes. That way you can clean up the fallout more easily with a makeup remover wipe! 

Step 1. Prime your eyes with your favorite primer and apply NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk all over your lid all the way up to your brow. Smudge it out so that it covers the lid in an even layer. 
Step 2. Apply a vibrant warm purple, such as Poison plum by Sugarpill, on your lid and blend it up into your crease. Remember to save a little "pocket" of space in the inner corner. 

Step 3. With an angled blending brush apply a lighter purple, such as Parfait amour by M.A.C., in the inner corner. Also use this lighter purple to blend the edges of the darker one. Highlight under your brow with a matte white. 
Step 4. On a smaller blending brush or pencil brush, pick up some black or really dark purple eyeshadow. I've used Beauty marked by M.A.C. since I love those burgundy sparkles, but they don't show up that much so you can as well use a regular black. Tap off the excess eyeshadow, since you don't want this eyeshadow to show up too black. Apply it in the outer corner and blend it slightly upwards and into the crease. 
Step 5. Apply the black eyeshadow along your upper lash line with a sharp, angled brush. Line your upper and lower waterline with a black kohl pencil. On a really small brush, pick up some of the lighter purple eyeshadow and press it onto the inner 1/3 of your waterline. On the outer 2/3 press on some of the darker purple. 
Step 6. Now is the time to apply your foundation! Then, I filled in my brows with Charcoal brown by M.A.C. and then applied a pair of false eyelashes. These are #747S by Red Cherry.  
For the lips I used a baby pink lipliner and on top of that a nude lipgloss. 
I hope this tutorial has been helpful for all of you with green eyes out there! :) Have a wonderful day!
