Askmewhats Version: Holiday Green and White

Here's the season to be Jolly falalalala, lalalala! :D

I love December! This is the month of sharing and happiness! I was sitting at home, thinking of a look to start off December, a look that would remind me of thsi wonderful season and that's when I thought of GREEN.

I wanted a simple, nothing too outlandish look, a look that goes with the season and at the same time goes with the work environment as well.

Here's the final look

And here's a diagram to simplify all the details

Step 1: (in Blue)

I've used MAC Paint Pot in Soft Ochre as base.
Pat on Lancome's Daylight or any matte white eyeshadow on the inner 3/4 of the eye. Also pat on the brow bone area and inner corner of the eye to highlight.

Step 2: (in Red)

Using a blending brush, blend NYX Kiwi on the other crease. Use the same e/s to line the lower lashes.

Step 3: (in Green)

Using the same brush, blend a darker Moss Green eyeshadow from L'oreal to deepen the crease area

Step 4:
(in black)

Using a pencil brush or Shadow Contour brush, darken the V-corner with MAC Carbon or any matte black e/s and blend well

Here are more products used for this look

Cover Girl Lash Blast in Black Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on eyeliner in Zero (black)
topped with Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on eyeliner in Stash (sparkly moss green)

More face and Lip products

MAC Studio Fix Foundation in NC30

Maybelline Blush Powder in Rose

Smashbox Smashing Tint for lips

And here's the final look

Eyes closed
(can you see the lovely Urban Decay 24/7 Stash liner on top of the black liner?)

And what's a Christmas-y look without something RED?
A RED shirt!!!

I would probably do more Christmas-y look the coming days
because I enjoyed this...
