Olive Garden

With Spring just around the corner I'm taking inspiration from the plants beginning to blossom. Although I'm not confident enough to wear bright green eyeshadow I do love a deep smokey eye. This lead to me searching through my whole makeup collection to see what sort of look I could create and to my surprise I had quite a few products to choose from.

I began by applying the elf cream eyeliner in Metallic Olive all the my lid to act as a base for my eyeshadow. This was done extremely messily as I then blended it out to soften the edges. This product was so easy to blend and I think I have found a new love for this product. Next I applied the light green from the Gosh Evergreen palette to the inner half of my eyelid in an attempt to brighten up my eyes slightly.

 Finally I took the deep green from the Sleek Storm palette and applied it to the outer half of my eye. I then blended it out and repeated this until I was happy with the deepness of the eyeshadow. I finished the look of by applying the  L'oreal Superliner in Black Crystals and the Soap and Glory Thick and Fast mascara. All of these eyeshadows are really pigmented and all very easy to blend. I can't wait to have a night out so that I have an excuse to wear this look.
