Get the Look: Ocean Green and Blue

Happy New Year everyone!

I hope everyone's New Year was really awesome, and I hope you all partied your hardest, whether it was at home, or out at a restaurant, bar or club  :)

I just thought I'd share my New Year's look with everyone. I just hope you guys don't think it's horrible! (p.s. excuse the faces, I was kinda sleepy and I'm not very photogenic ;))

So here's how you start:

Prep and prime your face and eyelids.

Sweep a cream eyeshadow onto your entire eyelid. Then, apply a dark blue shadow all over your eyelid. It doesn't have to be neat, you'll be blending it out later.

Using a blending brush, blend out the blue shadow. Then, take a light green shadow, and apply it into the inner 1/3rd of your eyelid.

Take your dark blue shadow again, and focus it on the outer 'V' of your eye. Then, lightly blend that shadow inward towards the green.

Then, using an eyelinder brush, mix the green and dark blue shadows and line your lower lid. Then, take an eyeliner pencil and line your upper lid, and the inner rim of your lower lid.

Curl your eyelashes, and put on your false eyelashes.

Then, apply blush to the apples of your cheeks, and apply a coat of lipgloss. Take a shimmery highlighter and sweep it into the tops of your cheekbones, the tip of the bridge of your nose, and in the inner corners of your eyes.

And here's the finished product! (Please excuse the funny faces I am making!)

Here are the products I used:

Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation
Benefit Lemon Aid Eyelid Primer
Avon's True Colour Eyeshadow in Midnight Plum
Elianto Holiday Palette in Light Green
