Tutorial: Green Editorial Eyeliner

Hi! I love makeup, especially editorial. Editorial looks aren’t for everyone, typically you love it or you hate it. I really like this look and I hope you do too!

This was a time consuming, hard look and if you are recreating this or something similar, don’t get frustrated if it doesn’t turn out perfectly at first, just stick with it. This is one of those looks that looks horrible until you are complete.

The eyeliner look is also similar to the 60’s eyeliner trend, similar to another eyeliner look I did. I can do a tutorial on this too if requested πŸ™‚

All products used will be listed and linked below!

Step one: Prime and prep the skin with your routine.

Step two: Prime the eyes then set with a small amount of powder. Then spray setting/priming spray to avoid cakiness. Also, do your eyebrows.

Step three: Take a cream shadow and outline the liner. IMPORTANT: While applying, stay above the socket bone.

Step four: Add shading. A darker green on the inner and outer corner. A lighter shade on the center. Copy on the lower lash line.

Step five: Add shading to the tear duct. This is a personal preference thing, but I did it because it looks sharper. Add the dark green from the inner and outer corner, trace the tear duct. Also, apply it where you eyelid starts. This is complicated, you’ll see what I mean when you see the picture.

Step six: Add more primer and powder, to clean up any areas.

Step seven (optional): Do foundation, concealer, bronzer, highlighter, etc.

Step eight: Add eyeliner and mascara.

Step nine: Finish with a nude, glossy lipstick.

I highly recommend feathery, light false eyelashes.
