AMW Version: Late St. Patrick's Day Look

Happy Thursday gorgeous people!  Let's share that huge smile to people we meet as it's such a blessing to be able to wake up each morning and spend time with our loved ones!

Yes, you got me!  I'm in the mood, Friday is so near and far away?  *hahaha*

As I try my best to do as much AMW Version as possible, I did manage to create a darker look (promise, it does look darker in person), I wanted to give this a unique name but it seems like I missed St. Patrick's Day so I'm dedicating this look to countries who celebrated St. Patrick's Day! 

Of course, when we talk about St. Patrick's Day, we are speaking the color green!  That  lso includes my mind *teeheee*  Smokey green tutorial can be as easy as 1-2-3...adding 4 and 5 for eyelining! :)  Then I suggest we turn that sentence into a nursery rhyme! :P

AMW Diagram

Step 1:
Instead of using eye primer, I've decided to use The Body Shop Special Edition Kajal Liner in 02 Ever Green as base!  You do not need to apply this evenly as this only serves as a  nice base to make whatever green eyeshadow you use to pop out!

With any flat shader brush or eyeshadow brush, I pat on TBS Eye Colour in 43 Velvet Green on top of the Kajal Liner.

Step 2: 
To blend in harsh lines from Step 1, use Milani eyeshadow in Garden Mist, gently blend it on the crease area with a wiper motion until you get a nice "smokey" effect.  You can always re-do step 1 until you reach your desired "smokey effect".

Step 3: 
Highlight the brow bone area with Stila eyeshadow in Kitten.

Step 5: 
Line the upper lash line with Stila Smudge Pots in Black.
Step 6: 
For a nice pop of color, I used Lancome Le Crayon Khol waterproof in Teal on the waterline.  You can choose whatever shade of eyeliner you own for that nice pop of color! 
This can even be worn alone!  Very gorgeous shade!

Do not forget the fill in your brows, curl your lashes and apply coats of mascara.  I used L'Oreal Curl Impact Collagen in Black in this tutorial.

Here's the outcome of my Late St. Patrick's Day look.  Would you believe I am too lazy to switch eyeshadow brushes that I used only one brush for all 3 eye shadows in this tutorial.  Do not forget to wipe out excess eyeshadow in between application so the colors won't mix!

Reference:  I used Prestige #104 Shadow Sweep brush

On to the rest of my face, oh!  To some who asked, my hair color is "Light Golden Brown" from box, Revlon Colorsilk!

For the Cheeks
Paul and Joe Cheek Colour 08

For the Lips:
Kiehl's Lip Blam #1 applied while doing eye makeup

Hope you like my smokey green look!

Have a gorgeous day!
Keep smilin'
Stay happy!

Now that spring is finally here, I could do this on my next day off ;) xxx
