Stylish Smokes: Emerald Smokes

I decided to do a beauty post today because I have never done anything like this on my blog before. I was inspired by Dulce Candy's "Excuse My Beauty" look. Her's was a warmer look but again, this was just inspired by her look.  I used the Maybelline quad in Emerald smokes. This quad came out a few years ago, but its still a really nice eye for the fall season. Enjoy the post! :)

1.) Start of with a clean and dry eye area. I also filled my eyebrows in.
2.) I applied my eye shadow base first. This helps intensify my shadows while making them last         longer. Then, to help my lid color pop even more, I added a cream colored base to my lid. After, I applied a nice shimmery green color all over the lid.
3.) Taking the crease color of this quad, I applied it using a fluffy blending brush. I then took a different brush to blend out the color.
4.) Taking a flat shader brush, I applied the outer corner color of the quad to my outer v and half of my lower lash line. I then went back in with the lid color and added it to the inner half of my lower lash. Finally I took a clean brush and blended all the harsh lines.
5.) I lined my upper lash line with a liquid liner and used a creamy eye pencil for my water line. After, I applied a couple coats of mascara. 
6.) In the last picture I just went back and cleaned up the look. Now the eyes are finished!
