I know, St. Patrick’s Day was a while back, but still, I was inspired to do this and better late than never right! Sweet, wonderful and resident diva, Rati sent me a Lakme Botanica quad with my lipstick purchases during the last “clearance sale” here on IMBB. :heart: It has a beautiful light and bright green that I just had to try as soon as possible! Green and gold is anyway such a beautiful combination that one really doesn’t need an excuse to try it on. :yes:
Products Used For This Makeup Tutorial:
- Lakme Quad – Peacock (Shade Used: Green).
- Lakme Quad – Botanica (Shades used: Beige, Light Green).
- Faces Canada Sparkle Dust Stack – Rainbow (Shade Used: Iridescent Green-Blue Sparkles).
- Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush Wet/Dry Eye Shadow – Gold Rush.
- Florelle Kajal.
- Lakme Insta Liner.
- Estee Lauder Projectionist Mascara.
- NYX Eyeshadow Base.
Apply a primer and concealer to the entire upper eyelid and the lower lash line. I avoid applying concealer under the eyes as there can be fall out, especially with that dark green color.
I avoid plucking my eyebrows. So, I use NYX eyeshadow base, apply it so as to form a desired arch/curve for my eyebrows, then blend it down. I then take a very thin brush, apply some kajal on it and fill in any sparse areas on my brows.
I then applied the beige/gold color in the “Botanica quad” on my brow bone and the light green color in the same quad over my entire lid, staying away from the crease.
Taking an angular brush, I then formed a triangular section within the outer corner with the darker green color from the “Peacock” quad.
I kept taking more color till I was satisfied with the color depth, shape and blending. I blended it out a little past my crease and towards the inner corner, but still kept the triangular shape on the outer corner.
I then applied a shimmery gold on the brow bone, as I felt that beige color applied earlier was a bit too matte and light.
To open up the eyes more and brighten the inner corners, I applied a greenish iridescent sparkle from the “Faces Rainbow Stack.” It appears white in the pot, but when applied, only the green/silver sparkles in it are visible. It is a BEAUTIFUL sparkle! I also applied the bright gold on the inner half of my lower lash line and dark green on the outer half. I also cleaned up under my eyes and applied some concealer.
I then applied my favourite intense kajal on my waterlines, lined my eyes with a very dark eyeliner and applied mascara.
That’s it! The look is done!
Without flash: I love how only the iridescent color on the inner corners sparkles and the rest remains fairly non-shimmery without the flash!
I hope you ladies liked this look and that the colors inspire you to get creative too! :yes:
Happy Makeuping! 😀
