Forest Fairy: a Green and Brown Forest Themed Makeup Tutorial

Hey everyone!
I was playing around with some colors today and I wanted to incorporate some green to match the lime green shorts that I was wearing. I only had one olive green shade from the wet n wild "comfort zone" palette and I decided to use that as my color on my eyes. So I really love this makeup and I hope you do too!

Face: I did a little bit of light contouring with a bronzer from the body shop. You can use any type of bronzer you'd like. I skipped on the blush, but if you're going to use one, use a shade of tan or brown. I also didn't use a highlighter, but feel free to use one if you'd like! I also filled in my brows with a mac 263 brush and a matte brown shadow. I think that filling in your brows is super important because it helps the eyes to stand out more!

Eyes: I primed my eye lids. Then I took the green shadow with a flat shader brush and patted it all over my lid. I then took a medium brown shimmery shade and my mac 217 brush and applied that to the crease. Then I took a cranberry shade and a fluffy brush and blended out the crease shade with that. I also took that shade a little bit above the crease. You could totally stop at this point if you'd like, but I took a sparkly dark brown shade and applied that to the outer "v" area of the eye. I didn't use a highlight shade, but if you do, go for a more yellow based one and don't go too sparkly. Take a black liquid liner and do a thin line right on the upper lashline and then take the green liquid liner and layer that over the liquid liner. I used jordana semi permanent liner in "endless black" and "timeless green". Use any type of mascara you'd like, but I used clinique high impact mascara in case you were wondering. 

Lips: I did a nudeish lip with maybelline baby lips in "peach kiss", but you can do any nude lip that you'd like. I would steer clear from any "color" because it can look too dramatic and a little theatrical. 

So I hope you liked this "forest" themed makeup tutorial! If you decide to try it out, let me know in the comments below and don't forget to follow this blog!
