EOTD: MAC's Bows & Curtseys: green smokey eye


Today I did  a look using Bows & Curtseys eyeshadow from MAC which came out with the Fashion Flower collection not too long ago. It's a blackened green with shimmer, perfect for a smokey eye, so that's what I did! 

Here’s a list of all the products I used and how I used them:

- Urban Decay Primer Potion: all over the lid up to the brow, blended out with my finger.

- MAC Brun: to fill in my brows, with an angled brush (MAC 263).

- MAC Vanilla eyeshadow: as a browbone highlight, applied with a flat shader brush (MAC 239)

- MAC Ricepaper: inner corner highlight, applied with a pencil brush (MAC 219)

- MAC Wedge: applied with a blending brush (MAC 217) right above the crease, as a transition colour between the dark green and the brow highlight.

- MAC Fresh Approach (LE: Makeup Art Cosmetics collection: Photo Realism quad): on the lid and lower lashline, applied with a flat shader brush (MAC 239).

- MAC Bows & Curtseys (LE: Fashion Flower collection): applied in the crease and outer corner with a blending brush (MAC 217) and on the lower lashline with a short bristle shader brush (MAC 214).

MAC Blacktrack fluidline: lined along the upper lashline, on the lower waterline and smudged between the lashes with a small liner brush (MAC 209).

- Max Factor False Lash Effect mascara: few coats on the top lashes, one coat on bottom lashes.

- False Eyelashes from H&M (no name or number) with Duo lash glue.

For a softer, less dramatic look, just skip the liner and lashes.
