Emerald Green: Color of the Year 2013 Makeup Tutorial

photo from google images

Emerald green is 2013's color of the year as stated by Pantone, a worldwide known authority on color for designers and various industries. From outfits, to makeup, to nails, to accessories, even home furnishing and appliances, green is everywhere. This post is my take on a green makeup. Something for prom, party, casual day or night out, or whenever you feel like it.
Green is a fresh and rejuvenating color. It calms the eyes and gives a relaxing feel. Why not wear it this summer to beat the heat? Continue reading to see how I did the eye makeup here.

These are the products used:
Sleek makeup iDivine Palette in Original
Elf Studio Eye Primer (forgot to include in photo)
Nichido Pencil Liner
Miners Matte factor Lip Paint in peach
NYX Round lipgloss in Peach
Maybelline Lash Stilleto Mascara
ELF Studio Blush in Candid Coral

Shades from the palette I used are numbered 1-5.

1. Prime lids as always. Priming the lid preps the skin for the eye shadow. 
This helps the eye shadows to stay in place and keeps them pigmented.

2. Take a shimmery green eyeshadow (Number 4 in the palette) and apply it on the 2/3 area of the lid.

3. On the inner corners, apply shade 5, a lighter green color.

4. Apply shade 3 on the outermost corner of the lid and blend well.

5. Take that same lighter green color and place it on the inner half of the lower lid.

6. Take green number 4 again and place it on the outer half of the lower lid.

7. Apply black eyeliner all around the eye. On the upper and lower lashline
 including the waterlines top and bottom.

8. Take shade number 2, a shimmery noir color and layer it over the black liner to set it.

9. Last eye shadow, shade number 1, apply it on the brow bone area for highlight.
Then blend everything well.

10. Curl and apply mascara (or falsies if you'd like).

And the eyes are done.

11. Finish the face your blusher applying it on the hollows of the cheek to serve as contour. You may not need to apply blusher on the apples of your cheeks so as not to take away attention from the eyes.

12. Last last last step, put on a peach lip color 

and coat it with a lip gloss to add shine.

I hope you enjoyed this one. Give it a try and tag me in facebook. Or post it on my facebook page's wall: The Beauty Goddess.

My friend and highschool batchmate is a USANA member and gave me samples of one of their skin care line product- Sense Beautiful Science. She gave them for free for me to try it out and make a review about it. Below are the set of products sample packs I received.
She gave me 3 packs of the sample sets.

Each of the sample pack contains a manual instruction insert and 5 sachets of each of the basic sets of the product line. First from the top Gentle Daily Cleanser, Hydrating Toner, Daytime Protective Emulsion, Perfecting Essence and Eye Nourisher. Each sachet contains 2ml.

A closer look.

Quick Review: Mistine Cosmetics Thailand

Mistine is a direct selling cosmetics company from Thailand. It is my first time to hear and try this brand when I came here in Cambodia. Mistine is very similar with Avon where in they have a wide range of products not only for beauty concerns but also for health and home and lifestyle.
I have seen independent sellers for this brand on facebook but they were mostly for pre-order basis as they will still be coming from Thailand. I had tried posting orders from one famous online shop but didn't get good results as they had me waiting but nadda. Nothing came. And then finally, I found a visible and tangible cosmetics shop that sells Mistine items-----> Lum Orng Cosmetic Online Shop. I went ahead to look for the address. As soon as I entered the shop, a lady with a warm smile welcomed me. Chovy, Lum Orng's sister (owner of the shop), showed me all the items and let me try them all with the testers. Since then, I have been a regular customer of theirs because they're custo…
