Belated FFF: Green Smokey makeup look

Sunday 15 April 2012

Apologies for the delay of FFF, it now is a FFS haha!
This weeks FFF was for a makeup company interview and inspired by the scarf I was wearing for it.. this was the mock up of what I'd wear so took a couple variations of the look! I ended up going with a pink-red lip coz I liked both, but let me know what you think..

Products used:
> NYX JEP in Milk
> MAC glitter & ice Warm palette - Winterscape
> MAC VV She Who Dares eyeshadow - Green side
> Too Faced Insurance Policy Palette - Lucky Charms
> Wet N Wild Comfort Zone palette - left side Eyelid & Crease shadows
> Sleek Au Naturel palette - Honeycomb, Bark & Noir
> UD 24/7 eye pencil in Zero & Covet
> MAC fluidline in Blacktrack
> Ardell 110 demi black lashes
> Khuraira ACC in Light
> MAC Studio Finish concealer - NC35
> Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation in 55
> MAC WonderWoman blush - Mighty Aphrodite
> MAC Such Flare! lipstick
> MAC Quick Sizzle lipstick

After priming the eye with UDPP & NYX JEP in Milk I applied MAC Winterscape to the inner corners of the eyes and Too Faced Lucky Charms to the middle of the eyelid. The green side from MAC She Who Dares eyeshadow was used in the crease and outer corner of the eyes, buffing it upwards slightly, followed by Bamboo (Sleek Au Naturel palette) on the brow bone, blending down into She Who Dares. I also applied a bit of Noir to the outer corner to intensify the smokiness.
UD 24/7 eye pencil was added to the lower lash line followed by Lucky Charms using a liner brush; the inner eye was then lined by UD Zero pencil and topliner done with MAC fluidline in Blacktrack. 
I used Ardell 110 demi black lashes and filled the top liner with more MAC fluidline; then filled in the brows with Sleek's Bark & Noir from the Au Naturel palette and concealed under the eyes to finish:
For the rest of the face I used Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation in 55 and MAC Wonderwoman in Mighty Aphrodite on the cheeks; for the lips I first used MAC Such Flare! lipstick:

I also tried the look with MAC Quick Sizzle lipstick:
I tried a different look on the other eye with the green "eyelid" colour in the Wet N Wild palette, but I didn't like it as much, so didn't feel it was worth taking pics of or doing!
I did do a neutral smokey look after, with the champagne & golden colours "eyelid" & "crease" in the Wet N Wild palette, leaving the green bottom liner:
However I didn't think it was as "wow" as the green smokey look, especially when in full context with the scarf:
Which look do you prefer or think goes better with the scarf?
I did end up going for a pink-red mix on the lips and green smokey look but I'd love to see which look you prefer!
