Never Too Much Sparkle Inverted Smokey Eye

 The Facebook group "Never Too Much Sparkle!" is doing a weekly challenge for an inverted, holiday smokey eye that integrates green and red. My eyes aren't to terribly wide set, but I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to try corrective shading for those with that problem, by completely inverting the way I normally do my smokey eye looks; adding shadow to the inner corners, this time. The results were surprisingly chic! Of course, I did some shading to slim my cheekbones to offset the effect of the eyeshadow.

Products used:
e.l.f. rose mineral eye primer
concrete minerals eye primer
detrivore primer

NYX Jumbo red lip pencil
GDE Martini Olive
GDE Olivia green
Aromaleigh Tainted Love
GDE Cloud Coverage
GDE Urban Trash

Kat VonD puro amor mascara
Meow Cosmetics browbeater auburn
Wickedly Clean blush Pastel Pink

e.l.f. lipstick natural nymph
NYX Jumbo Red lip pencil

As you can see, I used greens on the lower, red to the inner corner, and white to the outer.

To the right is the super-quick, hippie version of this look ^_-. I washed everything off and left the GDE martini olive mixed with GDE Olivia Green that remained on the lower lashline.

Peace, love, and gratitude this holiday season. ^_^
