I posted this look on Snapchat and I got such great response, I decided to show you exactly how easy it was to put together this glam emerald eye, using only a black eyeshadow crayon, black eyeshadow and one pigment. That's right - 3 product full glamour look coming your way! If you'd like to know how I created this super easy, yet bank holiday party appropriate look, please continue to read :)


Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream SPF 42 (just in case you're exposed to any sun this weekend, which according to the Weather app isn't very likely, but I prefer to remain an optimist)
Bourjois Radiance Reveal Concealer in 01 - for under-eyes
L'Oreal Sculpt Contouring Palette in Light/Medium - for contour
Estee Lauder Signature Silky Powder Blush in 21 Peach Nuance
W7 Hollywood Bronze & Glow- to bronze and lightly highlight
Lush Emotional Brilliance Transparent Powder - to set


I started off by prepping the lid with MAC Paint Pot in Painterly and set it all with Lush Emotional Brilliance Powder. I applied NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Black Bean to the whole lid and the crease, except for inner corners. I blended out the edges lightly with a synthetic Zoeva Concealer Brush, creating a dome shape. On a synthetic blending brush I picked up some black eyeshadow (Blackout from Urban Decay Naked 2 palette) and blended it in the outer corners, lower lid and in the crease, setting the cream eyeshadows, as well as making it look more three-dimentional. On the mid lid, I applied Inglot Pigment in 117, which is a beautiful 3D emerald shimmer with different glitter particles to it. Using a flat synthetic brush I packed up the colour until I was happy with it. I went for intense and somehow opaque shimmer, if that makes any sense? NYX Crayons are an amazing base for pigments, bringing out their true colour and pigmentation. I find they applied and stayed on better on top of already set primer. I finished up the eyes with few coats of my Max Factor Velvet Volume Mascara & Magnifibers in between the coats. You can dress up these eyes by wearing falsies but I was having a lazy, no falsies day:) I filled in my brows using Soap & Glory Archery in Blonde and set the hair with a coat of ModelCo More Brows in Light/Medium. Coat of Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Lipstick in La Raffinée on the lips completed this glamour emerald eye look. 

I hope you enjoy the finished look as much as I enjoyed creating & wearing it :) The emerald pigment will bring sparkles to any eye colour but will suit brown and dark eyes amazingly. The added black makes this a wearable look for blue and green eyes as well, making them pop. 

It's a very versatile shade & I hope you will try to recreate this super simple look. If you do, don't forget to tag me in your photos on Instagram or use my hashtag #idorottka. You can also snap me you looks, just follow i.dorottka on Snapchat. Don't worry about the products I used, any black cream shade and black powder shade will do & if emerald isn't your colour, just substitute it with something else. Possibilities are endless :)
