From the LA Fashion Week to the makeup gurus, green eye shadow is making it’s comeback in Spring 2011. David Klasfeld, owner of Obessive Compulsive Cosmetics and the Makeup Director for LA Fashion Weekend, used all shades of shimmery greens on the runway this season.
Not only does it complement the season but it also complements almost every skin type. Making the whites of your eyes more white and creating a more earthy look.
• Mix and match different shades of greens
• Use dark eyeliners
• Contour cheek bones with a bronzer
• Blend with a blending brush
• Overdo with different eye shadow colors, stick with neutrals
• Wear with green outfit! St. Patrick’s day is over
• Over shimmer your eye shadow—use different textures
Suggested green eye shadow look:
Prime your eyes from lid to brow with eye shadow primer of your choice, then pack your lids with a pastel green with a flat brush. Using the same flat brush, place olive green eye shadow on your crease. Then, using a darker green (I suggest M.A.C.’s Plumage) blend on your outer lid using a blending brush. Outline eyes with a dark liner on top (bottom optional). Finish off with a shimmer highlight under brows and tear duct.
Typically, you’re breaking the “focus on one feature” rule by pairing it with a red lip but it’s happening more so then not. Green and reds are complements of each other. So what the heck, if LA Fashion Week is rocking it, I’ll might as well rock it too 😉
