There are two colors that I’ve long struggled with on the eyes – blue and green. My attempts at making these two colors look fantastic have evolved over the years and inspiration most recently came from the Urban Decay Fall 2013 images.

Emerald and Navy Eyes Closeup

I wanted a deep emerald on the lid and a navy at the lower lashline.  After giving my eyes a wash of nude from Urban Decay Foxy, I added instant depth to the outer V of my lids using NARS Aigle Noir with minimal blending.  I then reached for my favorite jewel-toned palette – the original Shady Lady by theBalm.

Jealous Jordana went over the Soft Touch Shadow Pencil with a patting motion and was blended only slightly toward the inside of the crease.  I lined my upper lashline with Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On in Uzi and topped that with Jealous Jordana.  The gunmetal grey was less harsh than using a black.  Uzi also went on my waterline and then I applied Risque Renee from the eyeshadow palette to the lower lashline with a small shader blush.

As much as I adore deep lips with bold eyes lately, I went for Urban Decay Naked Revolution Lipstick and Lip Junkie this time around.  The cheeks were given a slight flush with Sonia Kashuk Pink Beautifying Blush.
