Purple and green eye look for Hazel eyes with a hint of green, nude shimmery lips and silver nails
Suebree96 requested a look for hazel eyes with green to accentuate the green in them. I thought about the colour that makes my green eyes pop (purple) and that hazel coloured eyes usually need a little gold to make them sparke. To let the green have a "brother in arms" I used green in this look as well.

- Neutrogena Pure glow (dry and sensitive skin daily cleansing cushion)
- Sephora Brand Face soothing toner
- Clinique repairwear intensive eye cream
- Clinique Superdefence triple action moisturiser SPF 15
- Sephora Brand "Tricks of the Trade" Immediate Wrinkle Filler
I started my day with my favourite cleansing cushions followed by Soothing toner. Because my skin is dry for some reason, I took my "winter" moisturiser Superdefence, I use this mostly in the winter because it's very thick and in the summer it just makes me sweat. For my eyes I used Repairwear and under my eyes (over my eye cream) I used the Wrinkle Filler. That's it really, it takes maybe 2 minutes and gives you a nice healthy skin all day long

Because my skin is very dry all of a sudden, I'm going for a more dewy look to give it some rest. I started with the Photo Finish using my fingers to massage it into my skin followed by Teint Parfait also applied with my fingers. This colour has a great golden shimmer that doesn't shimmer too much but gives you a nice healthy glow. Using the pink and lightest skin tone in the concealer palette mixed together with a brush to hide my circles. I used the Photo Op over this in a patting motion with my ring finger to give it a more natural finish. To finish the eye I added the Primer Potion on my eyelids only, I find that the HighBrow blends better without the Primer Potion under it.

To start my eyes off, I needed my HighBrow to make my eyebrows pop a bit. Going with the Clinique Touch tint all over my eyes (using a small dot on my finger and then rubbing it together to warm it up before patting it onto my eyelid and brow bone, I'm patting it in because I don't want to accidentally move anything that I've placed under it.) I then used the Smoke Out to line my upper eye really pushing the pencil as close to my lashes as possible, it doesn't have to be a straight pretty line, because afterwards I blended it out using my Line softener. There is also a softener on the other side of the pencil, and that works great too, but I like to clean my brushes when putting them away and with a pencil that's not as easy. I do this to have a little more pop on the colours on the lash line and your lashes look thicker if you do this.
If you're new at smokey eyes, this is a perfect way to start. This way you can have a very pretty neutral smokey eye (just add mascara at this point if you want this smokey eye). I took a picture of my eye at this point to show you guys how it looked after softening and blending the line.
I used AC/DC on the inner half of my eyelid up and a little over the crease. I forgot this colour is no longer sold, but Purple Haze (deep lilac w/ dark undertone Item # 36530) is a good replacement for it. I use the purple because that makes green pop more and using a too soft colour on hazel eyes can make them look tired. I used my Rounded Crease Brush for the colours AC/DC and Mildew because it has the perfect shape for the corners and you can blend the edges out a little whilst placing the colour. On the outer half of my eyelid I used Mildew to mirror the green that's already in the hazel eyes. I also placed this in and a little over the crease. Using the clean and bigger Crease Brush I blended the colours upward at the crease (remember to clean your brush on a towel or tissue before going to blend on your other eye). I didn't blend the colours on my eyelid because at this point I stick my finger in the Midnight Cowgirl and pack the colour on my finger. I then push the colour on the middle of my eye, creating a metallic colour (if you push the colour in over another colour, it does this great thing ) Using the Slanted Brush I placed the colour under my eye in my lash line as well (as you can see on the pictures, the colour looks very different under my eyes then on the middle of my upper eyelid). I placed a line of Gunmetal on my waterline to give it a hint of definition but not a hard line.
Using my mascara wand like eyebrow groomer I brushed my eyebrows into shape. I curled my eyelashes a bit and used Lash Injection as a mascara.
Edit: I'm going out tonight and thought I'd switch this look to my nightlook.
I added some Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on eye pencil (waterproof) in Zero (black) and another layer of mascara. This is what it looks like under yellow light (nightlight):
I prepped my nails yesterday night when I took off my old colour my using Hydrating Nail Gel and Badger Cuticle Care that had a night to soak in. I washed my hands and dried them using a towel and then let it air dry for another 10 minutes before I used the Nail Envy as a base. I used two coats of Birthday babe and a Topcoat over that (letting each one dry before adding a new layer).
