If you haven’t had a chance to try Mally Beauty’s products, please stop what you are doing and go find something you think you would love. Her products never disappoint me, and that’s high praise. I’m picky about eyeshadow.
This is the Mally Beauty Citychick Smokey Eye Kit in Central Park. It’s a concealer, a light shimmery taupe, a shimmery mid-tone green, and a dark matte-ish forest green. An eyeliner comes with the kit, but it’s not pictured here.
After covering my entire eye area with the concealer (it’s not bad, really, for a concealer in a kit), I started with the taupe, applying it all over the eye with my Royal & Langnickel Silk Pro Angle Brush. I took my MAKE UP FOR EVER 228 Medium Precision Shader Brush
(I adore this brush – it’s great when you’re using bright shades) and patted on the mid-tone green. The brush is kind of pointed, so it makes it easy to get to the corners of the eyes. Then the darkest forest green was smudged on with my Royal and Langnickel Silk Pro Smudger in a half moon shape from the outer corner of the upper lash line, in a half moon shape into the corner of my brow bone.
Then it was time to blend, and then blend again. I feel very strongly about blending – you do not want a line of demarcation on your lids. BLEND IT. Layer on more color if you need to, but keep on blending.
The gorgeous eyeliner is NARS Eye Paint in Snake Eyes, applied to the upper lash line only with an anonymous bent liner brush. This eye liner/Eye Paint is exceptional, and if you are a gel or cream eyeliner lover, you should have tons of these in your stash. Snake Eyes is almost black with green shimmer in it. It’s very subtle, but very striking. I added a tiny little flick on the outside using my Makeup Guard Card, which I really can’t do without when I’m working on a cat eye.
Three coats of mascara, because I have to have it. This is COVERGIRL Bombshell Volume By Lashblast Mascara.
I really wanted to put some false lashes on, but the spouse was harassing me to hurry up and finish so we could leave. Rude.
Would you wear a green smoky eye?
