Midnight Forest - Enticing Emerald Eyes

Hello everyone!

Summer is just about over, and I am getting more and more excited for the fall! It is my favorite time of year. Not just because I hate hot weather, but I just love the fashion, makeup trends, the colors, Halloween (duh), pumpkin spice lattes from Starbucks, and it's my anniversary as well! So it's definitely a happy time for me. To get into that spirit, here is a dark, enchanting makeup look that is fit for a dark forest fairy. These intense and dramatic looks are definitely among my favorites! Hope you enjoy it :)




FACE:
  • Max Factor Pan Stick in Nude Ivory
  • Physician's Formula Mosaic Face Powder 

EYES:
  • NYX Eyeshadow Base
  • BH Cosmetics 120 Eyeshadow Palette (Colors used are circled to the right, click to enlarge).
  • Matte Black all over lid, with green on top to create a deeper shade.
  • Khaki shade along edges of green   
  • Matte white on brow bone to highlight
  • Rimmel Soft Kohl Pencil in Black
  • Maybelline One by One Mascara in Black
  • ELF Lashes (#1713)
CHEEKS:
  • Milani Mosaic Blush in Sweet Cheeks
LIPS:
  • Max Factor Panstick (or any other foundation) to mute out lips
  • ELF Lipstick in Classy to add a faint, pink hue.

And there ya have it! I really do hope you enjoy this dark and sexy look...Keep your eyes open for a collaboration look coming very, very soon. I know you guys will love it! <3

  1. Beautiful! That green is definitely getting ready for the fall season. I can't wait to go to St. Louis and see the changing of the leaves. (I live in Miami and don't get to experience that). The leaves and halloween are my favorite parts of fall. Especially when it starts to get cold!

    Love the green and I especially love the sharp edges on the inner eye/tear duct area. It makes the look so much more dramatic without being over-the-top.
