St. Patrick's Day: Green Winged Eyeshadow Tutorial10:43 PM
Since I already did a very vibrant look using green in my Turquatic Inspired Look, I decided to do something a little bit different. One of my favorite ways to wear eyeshadow lately has been to do a smudgey winged line so I thought I would translate that into a vibrant kelly green befitting the holiday.
See the video (with a cameo by Cherry, my chihuahua) and more photos below!

You can see here that although there is bold color used, this is a quite wearable look since the green doesn't go up high on the eyelid. I'm a perpetual sucker for winged eyeliner as well. After seeing Academy Awards red carpet pics, I'm convinced that winged eyeliner is a trend that is sticking around for a while.
With eyes closed you can see the strips of colors lightly blended from black to green to the golden-olive shimmer. Also, the wing of the shadow is a visual mirror image to the shape of my eyebrows. The juicy peach lips and cheeks balances the warmer tones of the golden lid.
One warning I will say though is to make sure you exfoliate your lips well before trying out milky orange shades! This lipstick (and other milky lipsticks I've tried in general) really brings out any dry flakes, wrinkles, and imperfections. Still, the final look is definitely worth it! I'm all about peach lips for Spring!
And one last winky photo for silly times. :)
Remember that you can translate this into any other bright shade you would like. I could see it being especially pretty in purple or turquoise, while navy blue would be a sexy twist for going out. If you try it out, please let me know or share it on the From Head To Toe Facebook page. :)
Let me know what other looks you'd like to see in the comments. Happy weekend!
