Eye Makeup Tutorial: Gothic Green

Eye Makeup Tutorial – Gothic Green

Hello Everyone,

Today I have another easy-peasy eye makeup tutorial for you, thank you all for a wonderful response to Bright Orange Eye Makeup Tutorial few days back . Now, I am planning to do such quick eye makeup looks for makeup beginners and no complicated mix of eye shadows :P. So the next in the series is this Gothic Green eyes which we will be achieving with only one eye shadow…yes only one 🙂 and the rest will be taken care by a black eye pencil.

Eye Makeup Tutorial - Black and Green Eyes

Steps to achieve this look:

Apply concealer to hide the under eye pigmentation and dark circles if any followed by an eye shadow primer if you have extremely oly lids

  1. Using a pointed black liner pencil, fill in the corner and outer in such a way that the middle lid remains free from any color. As this is the place where we will be applying the Green eye shadow.
  2. Pick up a pencil blending brush and blend the liner. Keep the blending movements precisely to the crease and leave the middle lid area for next step
  3. Using a flat shading brush apply a dark shimmery green eye shadow in patting motion. Deposit the color till you achieve the desired pigmentation
  4. Same steps are needed to be followed on the lower lash line. First line the inner and outer 1/3rd with the same black kohl/liner and blend lightly with a pencil brush
  5. Apply the dark green shade in the middle area of the lower lash line. Using the tip of flat shading brush for application
  6. With a clean blending brush start blending the color over the crease for a smooth transition and no harsh lines.
  7. Apply highlighter to brow bone
  8. Line the upper lash line with the same black Kohl in a soft blended form so that its doesn’t look striking black against green on lids
  9. Curl your lashes and coat them with your favorite Mascara.

Step By Step Eye Makeup Tutorial - Black and Green

I wish I had a sparkling flashy green pigment while doing this look; it would have been much better than this dark shimmery green.
