When I received a surprise Christmas present from Buxom with an amazing new emerald green eyeshadow
I knew I wanted to use it to create the perfect emerald green smoky eye look! I thought I knew exactly what I wanted to do and created what I thought was the perfect dark eyed look one night and once I took a step back to see the whole look I hated it and knew it wasn't something I wanted to share! The next morning I brainstormed and instead decided to create this soft emerald green and gold and couldn't be more obsessed!
I used to be all about the super dark smoky eye, but I've since favored a more subtle look. This makeup look can easily be worn during the day or night and is perfect for any of your Christmas plans this week! Also this neutral pink lipstick
is literally my favorite shade of the moment (when I'm not wearing a bold color) and the best part is it's only $3!
