How to get the Green Goddess makeup look with Bryony Blake
Posted: by Nadia H
Few beauty trends have stood the test of time as well as the trusty smoky eye, but there’s no reason why this signature look can’t benefit from a modern twist!
We worked with celebrity makeup artist, Bryony Blake, to bring you a gorgeous, khaki-toned smoky eye to suit anyone. Alongside your base essentials and tools, you can recreate this look with our customisable, sustainable Colour Palette.
Now that your cream products have all been applied, set your base by lightly dusting Soft Focus Perfecting Powder across your skin using the Powder Brush. This will create a flawless canvas upon which your other products will sit beautifully. If you’re prone to oily eyelids, take a little of the product onto that area too.
Next up, brows! Use the angled end of the 3in1 Eye Brush to fill in any gaps between the hairs using Brow Boss Defining Powder. This will perfectly frame your eyes ahead of the sultry smoky eye you’ll be creating.
Using the fluffy end of the Eye Shadow Brush, tap Eyes On You in Maca into your eyelid crease, building up a subtle contour. Open your eye occasionally to ensure the product is visible, adding more if needed.
Switch to the 3in1 Eye Brush and use the fluffy end to apply Eyes On You in Nebula, a stunning khaki-green shade with a light shimmer, all over your eyelid. Patting the product into your skin with small, precise motions will minimise the amount of fallout. Bring the colour onto the lower lash line, then gently blend together.
Glide Silk Gel Liner in Ebony across your waterline, then onto your upper lash line to create a subtle, smoky wing. Switch to the 3in1 Eye Brush and use the angled end to go over the product, deepening the colour to your desired intensity.
Take Nebula onto the angled end of the same brush and go over the liner on both your lower and upper lash lines.
It’s time to clean up any spillage that might have resulted from applying your eye shadows. Dot a small amount of Beauty Booster onto the Beauty Drop Sponge and very gently wipe away any fallout, adding coverage back in as you go.
Add a flush of glowing colour with Way To Glow Pressed Highlighter in Rose Gold. The pink-toned hue of this shimmering highlighter brings both subtle iridescence and a hint of blush to your complexion when applied to the apples of the cheeks and the high points of your cheekbones using the pointed end of the Precision Face Brush.
This look yearns for an understated lip, so go in with Lip Glaze in Coral Crush to give your pout a naturally fuller appearance and a gentle sheen of colour.
