You know I had to use my brand new Wet n Wild Spring Forward Palettes to create a makeup look! Since I loved the mint green in the Going in the Wild palette, I knew I wanted to put together a “mint mojito” eye makeup look for you. By the way, I love all things mint colored. I think this stems from loving emerald green as my second favorite color, and loving the way mint is a softened version of it. This eye makeup look will go with any eye color and it has just a slightly smokey effect to it…enough to give it some depth and dimension. This is a great look to wear for Easter coming up, or even just to wear for a night out this spring!
Above is the palette I used, one of the new Wet n Wild “Spring Forward” Collection palettes in Going in the Wild. I used the right side of the palette only, and marked each shade with a guide on where to place each eyeshadow. Here’s how to get the look:
- Apply the mint green shade over your entire eyelid, as well as onto the bottom lash-line area.
- Apply the brown shade into the crease of your eye, being light-handed the closer your get toward your nose, and build the color up to be a bit darker as you work toward your temple. Blend this shade out well.
- Apply the dark shimmering green to the outer-third of your eye. Think of a sideways “V” shape on the outer third of your eye and apply the color in this manner, blending it out well. I also applied this to the outer third of my lower lash-line to meet the smokey edges of the eyes together.
- Apply the gold shade to your inner eyes. This will brighten the entire look and it also goes gorgeous with the mint green.
- Apply black eyeliner to your lower water-line, and apply a dark green eyeliner to your upper lash-line. I used Bobbi Brown’s “Ivy Shimmer Ink” Gel Liner. Curl your lashes and apply mascara!
You’re done! You can add your own flair to this look by leaving out the eyeliner or adding false lashes. It’s all up to you how dramatic you want this look to be!
I was impressed with the performance of the Wet n Wild shadows I used in this palette. You can create a gorgeous mint colored smokey eye on the cheap! If you’d like to see swatches of the Wet n Wild Spring Forward Palettes, click here.
