Birthstones: Emerald

First, I want to say WELCOME to all my new readers! :) And welcome back to you oldies! :D I wish I could express in words how much I really appreciate all of you who takes your time to read my posts, comment and subscribe to my blog! I am truly honored to have you here!

Second, is it really May already? :O Where did April go? :O Well, my inner Spock-a-holic has been longing for the premiere of "Stark Trek: Into Darkness" for a very long time now so I am very pleased to see May's pretty face. :) Another good thing with May is that it has one of the most beautiful birthstones associated with it; the emerald.

Midori is the perfect emerald green. The lighter green on the middle of the lid was applied to give the look a little more dimension.

Shitty image, but at least you can get a grasp of the green shimmer in the middle of the lid.

A peachy pink cheek and hot pink lips brings out the green eye makeup even more. I've been experimenting a bit with vintage hair-dos lately, and this is one of my (sloppy) attempts to do a "front roll".

*Shadow Insurance (original) (Too Faced)
*Gel liner Mystic (Makeup Geek)
*Midori (Sugarpill)
*Eye dust Bamboo (Make Up Store)

*False lashes #701 (Red Cherry)


I didn't do an image tutorial on this one since it's such an easy look, but I thought I'd write down the steps anyway in case you're wondering anything about it.

Step 1. Prime your eyes as usual.

Step 2. Draw and fill in the cat eye with a green base. As a base I used the gel liner Mystic by Makeup Geek.

Step 3. On top of the base, apply Midori by Sugarpill, leaving a little pocket open in the middle of the lid. On top of that pocket apply a shimmery green pigment. I used Bamboo by Make Up Store.

Step 4. Define the edges with a small brush and concealer.

Step 5. Line your eyes (waterline + upper lash line) with a black kohl pencil. Smudge it out a bit around the upper lash line, then set it with a black eyeshadow. Make sure the black is well blended into the green; we don't want a sharp eyeliner.

Step 6. Mascara and false eyelashes.


Soon I'll be starting a (hopefully) rather busy schedule at work over summer. I will be selling a lot of luxury cosmetics, which is really nice since the products are of such high quality and easy to recommend to a customer.

Anyways, I hope you're having a lovely time whatever you're doing! Thanks a lot for reading and a BIG thanks for all of you who comments and subscribes! :D
