Hunters Eyes – (Daytime Green)

A new look for you guys using a few new things that I received in my E.L.F. Cosmetics order this week, as well as some of my favourites. I wanted to do a look that was quite dramatic but could be used in the day too and in all honesty I am really happy with how it turned out… Greens look lovely when you have brown eyes. This can easily be done for a night time look as well just darken it into a smokey eye look with a bit more black and intensify the colour to make it pop out.  This what I used:

Smokey eyes are perfect for a date night or even a night out with the girls, its also a look that can be used with many different colours and easily updated. I went for greens and browns this time no blacks were needed and I only used basically one palette. I also added the lashes from my She Said Beauty Box will have to review.

I will do a review for theses lashes as the lashes were lovely but the glue they came with was way too watery and there wasn’t much “stick” hence my lashes coming off.
