    Makeup For Green Eyes - The Pure Impact Collection

    • 2 min read

    BY CHELSEA SIMMONS

    We get so many questions about what makeup looks best with different eye colors. Eye Steppes has taken the guess work out of it for us, and not with the same boring shades, but with a huge variety! For your inspiration, here are some gorgeous ideas from our National Makeup Artist Educator, Shawn Towne. I will start with green eyes, because that's my eye color, and add brown and blue in my next posts. Hidden bonus: there are tips about how to use our fabulous new brushes! A Simple Daytime Look:
    • Use the Oval Blender Brush to apply Allure(the large base shade in the top of your Eye Steppes stack) to the entire lid, lashes to brow.
    • Next use your Chisel Shader Brush to press Iris (the lightest shade in the middle Steppe) to the inner third of the eye.
    • Apply Grape(the purple shade in the bottom Steppe) to the outer fourth of the eye, from lashes up over the crease. Use the Chisel Shader Brush for intense color, the Crease Brush for a more subtle wash.
    • Finally, use the Small Fluff Brush to press Sepiainto the lower lash line. Mist the brush first if you want more intensity.
    A Perfect Playtime Look:
    • With the Chisel Shader Brush, press Irisinto the inner two-thirds of they eyelid, lashes to crease.
    • Use the Chisel Shader Brush to press Slate (paired with Grape in the bottom Steppe) into the outer third of the lid, lashes to crease. Trace under the entire lower lash line with the Small Fluff Brush.
    • Wipe off the Chisel Shader Brush on a tissue and use it to press Sepia into and just above the crease, in the center area of the eye.
    • Clean the brush again (are you getting the hint that this brush is incredibly versatile? If I was stranded on an island, this is the only brush I would need), and apply Allureto the brow bone, in the center.
    • Be brave now! Take Grape and apply it to the outer third from the lashes up toward the brow, fading as you go up.
    For best results, blend everything well with the Oval Blender Brush. The illustrations of the finished looks are less blended for purpose of, well, illustration ;) As a last step, apply plenty of PureLash Lash Extender & Conditioner and Longest Lash Mascara Thickening and Lengthening Mascara in Black Ice. Everyone in the office is playing with these looks, will you give them a try? Our next post is up to you... blue eyes or brown eyes?
