Green & Gold makeup tutorial

Green eyeshadow? Yes please!

Green is a surprisingly easy color to pull off. It goes beautifully with warm colors and gold. I find myself reaching for green colors especially during the holidays. There’s just something super festive about it – especially if you pair it with red lips.

I’ve also been asked to do a green eyeshadow tutorial – so here it is. I actually used just three colors here: warm orange shade, green and gold. And glitter. I just had to – since for once my weird-colored glitter liner matched the look perfectly.

This post is also a part of Finnish beauty blogger’s holiday makeup collaboration. We all did different party looks for the season. Links to other bloggers’ posts are at the end of this post!

Green & gold makeup tutorial – with a touch of glitter!

green gold makeup tutorial

1. Start by applying a warm orange shade as a base for your look. This color acts as your ‘border’. My eyes are deep set so I apply the color pretty high. Blend this color well so that there are not any harsh lines. Do the same to your lower lash line, but leave a gap for the green eyeshadow.
2. Apply a green shade all over your lid and on your lower lash line. Basically fill up inside the lines you created with the orange shade. Blend carefully the edges, but don’t overdo it. If you blend these colors too much, it can look muddy.
3. Apply a gold shade to your inner corner and bring it on the lid slightly from the inner corners. You can also apply some gold on your brow bone if you like.
4. Apply glitter on about 1/2 of your lid. Add a touch of glitter on your lower lashline as well. This is easier with a glitter liner.
5. Line your eyes, add mascara and lashes.

Simplified version of color and glitter placement. The white dots is where I applied glitter.

red gold lips

To bring this look together, I applied the same gold color as my highlight on my cheekbones, nose and cupid’s bow. I even applied it on top of my red lips. My nails also matched the look. Although no one knows if I only painted one hand out of laziness.

    Upea meikki! Mä rakastan vihreää luomiväriä ja se sopiikin pikkujouluihin mun mielestä tosi hyvin. Punaiset huulet teki tästä tosi jouluisen ja juhlallisen kokonaisuuden :).
