Soft Green Smokey Eye Tutorial

Ever since Pantone announced that the colour for next year is Emerald I've been obsessed with all things green. Here is a simple soft green smokey eye tutorial.



Eye products used
  • Jordana Color Extend Eyeliner in Blackout
  • Make Up Store Multi-lash Mascara in Black*
  • MAC eyeshadows in Humid, Moleskin & Phloof



1. Apply black eyeliner in a thick line on top lashline
2. Smudge the black eyeliner all over the lid
3. Apply MAC Humid all over lid over the smudged liner
4. Apply MAC Humid on bottom lashline
5. & 6. Using MAC Moleskin buff the edges so there are no harsh lines
7. Apply MAC Phloof on brow bone
8. Smudge a bit more black eyeliner in the out V area
9. & 10. Finish with 3 coats of mascara on top and bottom lashes.

Here is the completed look. When I wear colour on my eyes I like to keep my cheeks and lips fairly neutral. In this look I'm wearing my favourite blush, Naked Rose by Illamasqua, and BYS lipstick in Sassy Salmon.
On cheeks: Illamasqua Naked Rose blush. On lips: BYS Sassy Salmon lipstick

Hope you like the tutorial. Let me know what you think in the comments below.

  2. I would never have the confidence to wear that eye look but you make it look so easy (and gorgeous).

    1. I think if you keep the colour fairly muted and concentrated on the lid only it should be easy enough to wear. Give it a try, see how you go! :)
