January 2011 Series: 5th

A requested yellow and green colour combination look.

This look was started off by applying a white base so that the pigments would stick & the yellow would pop. A yellow pigment was applied to the inner one-third of the lid & inner one-third of the lower lashline & in the tearduct area. The yellow was blended a bit over the crease. Next, a parrot green sort of pigment was applied to the middle of the lid & middle of the lower lashline & was blended in with the yellow. This green was blended in a bit over the crease as well. A shimmery dark green was then applied to the outer third of the lid & outer third of the lower lashline & blended in with the other green. This dark green was blended a little above the crease too.
On the browbone, a shimmery dark brown was used on the outer half & a lighter shimmery brown was used on the inner half. This was done to blend out the colours that were applied on the lid & brought in above the crease. A shimmery champagne shade was applied as the highlight & over the yellow in the tearduct area.
Black eyeliner was used to tightline, on the waterline, & on the upper lashline. The eyeliner was winged as well. The look was finished off with black mascara.
