If you read my post almost two weeks ago about my beauty haul at Marshalls, you may remember that I picked up an “oops” item. It was a Maybelline gel eyeliner and since I’ve developed a habit of collecting them, picked it up instantly. When I got home I realized that the liner wasn’t black at all..it was green! green?! of all colors, I couldn’t believe I picked up a green gel liner. That has to be a product that I would never fathom using. I only own a couple (literally two) green pieces in my wardrobe and it’s not a color that I’m generally attracted to. But since I purchased it, I wondered how I could make the color work. I dug in my makeup case for anything green I could find.
I found a super old drugstore palette with green hues that was so old that I’m not sure of the brand! I also remembered that I scored a green eyeliner in my April Glossybox. So I put the three together to try to create a non-dramatic look to wear during the day. The idea of a dramatic green look was too much for me to handle!
For this look, I took the deepest green in this pallete and decided to work only with that color. I used a MAC 224 brush and applied the color to my lid and just buffed it up into my crease. One color, one brush. Then I used the Julep Gel Eye Glider in Olive from my Glossybox in my waterline and the Maybelline Eye Studio Master Duo Glossy Liquid Liner in Polished Green to my lids. I finished the look with a couple coats of mascara (no falsies) on my top and bottom lashes. I ended up really liking this look and I didn’t feel it was too much for daytime. I may have been missing out by not trying green products!
