Good Afternoon guys!
It’s Easter weekend and I’m sat with slippers on, hot chocolate in one hand and Cadburys creme egg in the other.
Too much chocolate?
I wanted to create a look that was inspired by Spring, but more so by nature. Everything comes alive in the Springtime, so im going ‘back to the roots’ (pardon the pun) with a beautiful green smokey eye.
So im starting off with this pretty shimmery bronze base shade from my Makeup Revolution palette and applying it all across my lid.
I’m using my fluffy blending brush which is perfect sweeping the colours and blending it flawlessly into my skin.
This little pocket palette is from Autograph by Marks and Spencers, aren’t these two colours so lovely together, very organic looking and fresh. The colours are highly pigmented and look beautiful.
I applied it using the same brush to my crease and outer corner. As I have green eyes, the colours just bounce off each other and emphasise my peepers.
Next up is this warmer green tone that I am going to apply over the top of that darker shade. This is going to brighten everything up and really turn me into a green goddess….
Or the hulk…
Im just applying that same shade to my lower lash line with a pencil brush and placed a highlighting white shade in my inner corner. This is going to brighten and awaken my eyes making them appear whiter and brighter.
Using my most favourite liquid eyeliner EVER.. the Loreal Super liner in black, im doing a simple and elegant wing emphasising on the outer corner to add drama.
Can we just take a moment to appreciate these lashes.
They’re by the brand Eylure and are possibly some of the prettiest shaped lashes I have ever used. I love how natural and feminine they look and those green lashes hidden in there are incredible. Perfect for this look.
Last step is mascara. Im using, again a favourite, the Maybelline Sensational mascara to really blend my real lashes in and to add some dimension to my bottom ones.
The Finished Results
Im so happy with how this look turned out. I thought it may be a little overpowering but it turned out quite subtle and smokey. For me, the lashes really bring the whole look together giving it such a girly and feminine feel whilst still looking very earthy and natural.
I would love to see what you lovelies think of this look and if you would like to see any more specific colour themes too!

I hope you ALL have a beautiful Easter!
