For the next look in this holiday series I decided to use some color instead of the typical black smokey eye. I think that jewel-toned greens are excellent for the holiday season! As stunning as they are, a dramatic smokey eye can be difficult to achieve. It can literally go from 0 to raccoon real quick. My best advice to achieve the perfect smokey eye is to layer your shadows (lightest to darkest) and take your time building and blending the colors. Have a look at what I came up with!
Can we take a second for this close up shot! I have failed so many times before trying to get a shot like this… progress!
