Create a Bold Green Eye Look with Heidi Evora-Santiago of Damali NYC
Green is such a bold, strong color, and it was fun to really play it up in Ceci Johnson’s cover shoot. Here’s how I created her look:
Eyes: We were going for a dramatic eye, so I chose Ben Nye’s Lumiere Cream color in Jade. The color is a lush green with a slight shimmer. To add depth and dimension to the shadow, I set it with a bit of Inglot's eye shadow in Pearl (#414) and pulled from my archive a bit of Tony and Tina’s Cosmic Truth, which is a brighter green with a bit of a glitter that I used in the inner part of the lid.
Lashes: I finished off the eyes with a pair of MAC #7 lashes to give them extra oomph.
Cheeks: I kept the skin very simple. I used a very light dusting of MAC’s trace gold as a bit of contour on the cheeks and opted not to do any blush.
Lips: For the lips I used Nars’ Belize lip gloss which was the closest color to Ceci’s natural lip tone.
