Ahhh May! My favourite month and such a busy month too: Melissa’s Bday, my own bday (YAAS), and the blog’s bday (see our exciting giveaway)!! I was so excited to create the makeup look using this month’s birthstone because I looove emerald green! Also, the emerald is a symbol of youth and rebirth, and promises good luck. What’s not to love about emeralds? More info here.

After creating “crazy” looks for the past few Birthstone Beauty looks, I decided to create a more “wearable” look for you guys! So no green lips, and no green blush 😉 I went for a very easy green smokey eye, which I paired with glossy burgundy lips. This look reminds me of autumn, and even though summer hasn’t arrived yet, I have to admit that I long for september and its long, sunny days and cool nights.
Eyes: I applied MakeUpForEver’s eyeshadow in “ME304” all over the lid. I then applied L’Oréal’s Ultra concentrated eyeshadow in “Emerald Lame”. In the crease and as a transition colour, I used MAC’s eyeshadow in “Cork”. I added a touch of a black-green eyeshadow from my no-name Sephora palette. In the center of the lid, I added a touch of MAC’s pigment in “Old Gold”. On the brow bone I used Smashbox’s eyeshadow in “Ambient”, from the On the Rocks palette. I lined under my eyes using Sephora’s retractable eyeliner in “Matte Black”, and I used Lancôme’s eyeliner pencil in “Black Ebony” in the waterline.
Lips: I applied MAC’s lipliner in “Nightmoth” all over my lips, then I used MAC’s patentpolish lip pencil in “Sultana” and I finished the lips with Julep’s lip gloss in “Vivid”.
Face: I used MAC’s eyeshadow in “Nylon” as a highlighter, and the blush is MakeUpForEver’s eyeshadow in “I804”. Eyebrows are filled in with MAC’s eyeshadow in “Brun”.
I hope you like this look as much as I do!! ❤
