Makeup Mondays - Mint for you Eyes Tutorial

I adore using green eyeshadows!  I love to play up my eyes by adding pops of green with my copper hair, but any eye and hair color can pull this sassy look off!  This particular makeup look was inspired by the Holiday catalog by BeBe that I was thumbing through over the holidays.  I couldn't wait to make this video and share it with you all.

Here is the picture that inspired my tutorial.

And here it is!! I have decided to name it Mint for You Eyes. I thought it to be very fitting.  Let me know how you guys like it.  I love to hear your comments, suggestions, and feedback in general.
And don't forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel HERE!!

After this makeup tutorial I was feeling so video crazy that I decided to do a hair tutorial for Wednesday's post!  I will be doing a hair tutorial on a messy, wavy up do topped off with a sparkly band for an ultra-feminine look you can wear day or night.
Here are the pictures for Wednesday's hair tutorial!

I just ordered a new palette from Urban Decay that features 15 new colors!!!!! I am so excited I can barely stand it!! So, I will have something crazy fun for us next Monday!

Urban Decay's Book of Shadows Vol 3

I hope you guys enjoy and Happy Monday Lovelies!!

OH Angela! Your smile in the first picture of your messy, wavy up do views......

Before I read the text, I thought to myself..."You are too great lady. I thought she just thought oh I know what I will do I will just put my hair up all fancy and glam. It will just take half a second!"

It is too great, I can't wait to see how to do it!

And the Make up tutorial is great too!

What is the "Milk" for? I have never heard of that before.......

With Lots of Love Give away

Green is my favorite eyeshadow color because it matches my eyes. I had no idea that a white base would help.

I learn so much from you, Angela! Thank you.

Truly incredible eyes, I never venture to trying such strong colours, they do look fabulous though. One of my (many) new year's resolutions is to try and experiment more with my fashion, beauty and hair.

Love the hair, looking forward to that tutorial!
Have a lovely week.

I will gong to try this lime color eyes next time, it's not so me since I'm so scared on trying those kind of bold colors :-)

Ashelle said...

Great advice on putting down white shadow first when using bright colours. I will have to do that next time.

Jaclyn said...

I love how this looks, it matches especially well with the coral blush. I've never tried the color, but I may have to now. Thanks for sharing

Meagan said...

I love watching your make-up tutorials. I always learn so much! Like, I would have never known to put a white base under a bright color. And I'm super excited for your hair tutorial!

silvergirl said...

I don't know if I can pull off the green eyeshadow. I will give it a try on a down day and see how it looks.
