With its green hues, this look is ideal for the upcoming holiday season. To create the crisp line at the edge of the eye, place a piece of scotch tape on the back of your hand and remove a couple of times to get rid of a lot of the adhesive. This will keep it from removing any face makeup you may have already applied. Using Makeup Geek eyeshadows, begin with the color Poison Ivy and pat over the lower lid. Go in with Mocha and place in the outer v and blend up into the crease slightly making sure to blend out any harsh lines. Now go in with the color Corrupt and define the outer v and bring into the crease making sure not to cover the Mocha that was previously placed. Use a combination of Bling and White Lies as a highlight shade. Use Corrupt under the eye and line the upper and lower waterline with a black liner like Immortal.

OMG! These girls are so talented and creative. Thanks Makeup Geek for sharing these looks with us. Everytime I look at them it gave me the courage and motivation I need to try some of these looks on myself. I always told to myself that…..If these artists are able to create these STUNING AND AMAZINGLY GORGEOUS makeup looks on themself I am able too. I just need to practice, practice and practice. Here’s my top 3:

1) Gold glitter eyes by makeupbyritz
2) Chestnuts Roasting by bitterstarlite
3) Romantic gold&teal makeup tutorial by Meridith Jessica

Everyone did a amazing job don’t get me wrong! These are just my most favorites of all these stunning makeup looks!

Many thanks indeed for these beautiful pieces of arts, they are all amazing in different ways, but Pocahontas is the one i am going to try first, the 3 other green ones will be the next on my list. Thank you again for these inspirations!!!
