Bright Green Teal Smokey Eye Tutorial | Beginner Friendly Mermaid Vibes


– Hey, friends, it’s Courtney. Welcome back to my channel, Phyrra, where we talk about all
things cruelty-free beauty, gothic fashion, and lifestyle. If that sounds interesting to you, make sure you hit that subscribe button. Today’s video is gonna
be a bright and colorful eye shadow tutorial, and
I’m just gonna go ahead and jump right into it. I’ve already prepped
my eyes for this video. I’ve gone ahead and done my brows, and I tight-lined my upper waterline, and I’ve went ahead and used Anastasia Beverly Hills eyeshadow primer, and I set it with my Cozzette
Beauty setting powder. I’m gonna start with a
Jouer tan lines palette and I’m gonna take the
shade right here, limelight. I tapped off the excess and I’m using a big fluffy brush because I want to start
building this color up on the hood of my eye. Let’s get a little closer for you. Basically I just took this brush which is a big fluffy brush and worked it through my crease in a windshield wiper motion. I’m gonna use this SauceBox brush to take that same color, limelight, and put along my lower lid. I’m taking this down quite far because I’m gonna clean
it up and shape it later. I wanna use the color Space Queen from the Melt Smoke Sessions palette. I love this color. I’m using a Goss five brush. You could use any sort of
pencil brush that you like. I’m basically going to build this up along the lower lid. I’m making sure to bring the
color all the way across. I’m going to make sure
that I extend the color just a little bit past
all of the folds of skin around my eye because I
have very hooded eyes. When I’m looking at you directly, you can see there’s
this big curtain of skin that comes over my lid. The curtain hides the lid, so that’s why I’m trying to make sure that I bring the color
just a little bit past these wrinkles so that I can help shape the illusion of my eye. One of the best things
about using a pencil brush is that you can then pop it right into the socket of your eye and start working it
inwards through your crease, just following the shape of your bone. I also like to pack the corner of this outer part of the lid, too, since that’s where I want
it to be deepest, anyways. Then I’m switching to
the Goss 26S to blend. I’m blending back and
forth along the lower lid. When I am blending at the outer corner, I am blending outwards and upwards to try to help pull my
eye shape up a little bit. Then I’m blending in a
windshield wiper motion through the crease. Then I’m gonna start
doing tiny little circles at the inner crease and work in tiny little
circles all the way back. When I get here, I’m blending in a circle at the outer corner of the eye. I’m gonna go in with this Viseart Bright Editorial palette green right here because I need, I think,
a little bit more like a mint shade of green. I’m using a Real Techniques fluffy brush and I tapped it off. I’m going to pop it right into the crease where I just put those other two colors and start blending it, and
blending in little circles. I’m gonna do the same
thing along the lower lid where I’m applying this green on top and then blending in little circles. The next color we’re gonna use is this bright teal blue right here called Meadow from SauceBox. I’m just gonna use a lid
brush to pack it on the lid. I love meadow. It’s my favorite teal blue matte. I’m gonna take my Bdellium
Tools Golden Triangle brush, which is their 787, and very, very lightly in circles, blend over the entire eye
area just to make sure everything is nice and soft and blended. I’m keeping this eye shape quite wide, so I’m really just using the tissue to clean up the shape a little bit. I’m doing that because I have hooded eyes and I’m trying to help balance the top and the bottom. I’m gonna put on the rest of my makeup and then I will be right back to finish this eye look for you. Now that I have the rest of my face on, I’m gonna go ahead and
finish up this eye look. Gonna use the Viseart
white shade right here to clean up around the edges. One of the things that I really like to do whenever I do my makeup is to tie my makeup look together
with my eyes and my cheeks by using the same highlighter that I used on my cheeks and my eyes. I’m going to use Black
Moon Glow Worm on my eyes. I only do it under the
outer part of my brow because I have hooded eyes. I will add a tiny little bit at the inner corner, though. The next thing I’m gonna do
is put on mascara primer, and I’m going to use Marc
Jacobs mascara primer. I think this is the velvet lash. I’m gonna use my Milk Makeup Kush Mascara. Don’t worry if you get
a little bit of mascara on your eye, like I
pretty much inevitably do every time I apply mascara. Just wait for it to fully dry and use a Q-tip to pop it off. The last step that I’m
gonna do is to add color to my lower waterline, and I’m gonna use the Urban Decay Basquiat
pencil in Post Punk, which is this bright lime-green color. I wanna amp up this look
just a tiny little bit, and to do that, I’m gonna add some glitter with Lime Crime Dragon. I’m just gonna use this
green brush that I used with the Viseart green to just do a windshield wiper
motion through the crease. Oh my God, I just love
it so much; it’s so cute. Actually I guess it’s the perfect, that’s a perfect place for me to test the waterproof mascaras on my lower lashes since I’m not supposed
to use waterproof mascara on my upper lashes. Here’s the finished eye look up close. I hope you enjoyed this

  • RinaReviews says:

    Yay! My favorite color for eyeshadow! I love the look you did–I'll have to try using Dragon this way.

  • ThePinkLadyJ says:

    Love it! So pretty.

  • KT says:

    I like the greens. It kinda reminds me of what sugarpill suggested to do on Instagram:) that limecrime glitter is it like stila glitter and glow or is it loose glitter and you use an adhesive?

  • Texas Lyoness says:

    I used to work at a Clinique counter years ago. They had an eyeliner called Juniper, which is no longer made. It was a teal color and there was a smudger with shadow in the other end of the cap. I used a shimmery champagne colored shadow all over and then I used Juniper on the top and bottom and did a slight cat eye. I have light blue eyes and fair skin. I never got as many compliments on my eyes as I did with that eyeliner. That look was nice with the all white dress that was my uniform. The district manager came in one day and asked why we were the only store in Houston selling out of Juniper…lol. The closest liner I can find to the color is Revlonโ€™s Colorstay teal/number 210, but even that is not an exact match to Juniper.

  • Jo Smith says:

    Thank you so much – you are helping me โ€˜adjustโ€™ my make up to make the most of my hooded eyes ๐Ÿ˜˜

  • Stacie Kelly says:

    This looks amazing. Like I cant even stand it amazing. Holy shit.

    I love all the greens โค. Beautiful!

  • Dizzyknitsandcurls says:

    This video is a great example of not judging a look til itโ€™s done you created a beautiful look I loved seeing the process

  • Christie Cat says:

    This is a beautiful look on you, Courtney!๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š

  • Sarah S says:

    Loving this smoky green eyeshadow look!!! ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ–ค

  • Chelsea Lee says:

    This is a very cheerful, fun look.

  • honey&company says:

    Oooooo I love this look on you doll! ๐Ÿ˜ I really want to try Melt, but have you seen the video Beauty News posted today about the moldy pallets/shadows? ๐Ÿ˜•

  • hallirackit says:

    Welp, that's me buying the green story palette that caught my eye the other day. Also Hydro – that colour is everything. (I also really like how the look works with your eye colour!)

  • Judi FM says:

    The glitter at the end really just enhanced an already beautiful look!!

  • Christine says:

    I'm definitely loving greens lately! I also have hooded eyes, so I really appreciate your tutorials. Sydney Grace is introducing a green bundle on Friday as part of their sale and I'm very tempted ๐Ÿ’š.

  • Marcia Friedman says:

    I like greens that are more of an army green – sort of khaki. But in honor of your video today I added in a dark green to my eye look for a change of pace.

  • Cin Seven says:

    Great tip about letting the mascara dry and then just pop it off with a cotton swab.

  • Atelier Marketing Collective says:

    I love this tute and this looks so cool on you. Re: Mascara: Maybe I'm strange but I usually apply my mascara first, let it dry completely and then use a Q-tip to remove any mascara on my brow bone & lid. Then I go in with eyelid primer, eyeshadow, etc. I think if I did it your way I'd seriously mess it up because I'm not as skilled as you ๐Ÿ˜„

  • Steph dayosteph says:

    I loved this one!! I have everything but the saucebox teal, any good recommendations for dupes? Would the blue from the Viseart Matte palette work do you think?

  • T Statman says:

    As always, what a beautiful look at the end!!!

  • Claudia Materdomini says:

    I'm always interested in the brushes you use. I need to play with more so I can actually do better eye makeup!

  • JackOllie4 says:

    All out green! I love it!

  • HappyG says:

    What are your thoughts on the Melt Smoke Sessions palette growing mould? And have you seen anything like that in your palette?

  • Hissycat Krissy says:

    I have reeeally hooded eyes (worse since getting Botox for migraines) and your tutorials are a life saver! Green is my favourite colour so I loved this look ๐Ÿ™‚

  • faeriecrypt says:

    Help me remember, but have you done a skincare routine video or blog post in a while? I ask because your skin look beautiful. I don't know if we're the same skin type, but I am trying to use up all of my samples and current skincare products and then move on to a regimen I curate myself. This is a fun, gorgeous eye look, too!

  • SaBr 417 says:

    Have you seen the Beauty News recent video? It was about her Melt palette growing mold after having it for only 8 months. I thought Iโ€™d share just in case! Those palettes are gorgeous but now Iโ€™m paranoid ๐Ÿ˜‚

  • Bridget Delany says:

    Not only was the eye look beautiful, but the lip color was stunning as well!

  • jenny koppy says:

    I love it!! So much to say : 1) living for that meadow color and the Lime Crime glitter, 2) You did a great job explaining and showing how to do an โ€œouter vโ€ on hooded eyes. Mine arenโ€™t hooded, there deep/set, but I face a lot of the same issues as hooded – eyed peeps. I never thought of using a pencil brush! 3) Our make-up styles are different, but I always learn something from all your videos ( and your book!) Thx!!

  • Rebecca R. says:

    I love these colors on you

  • jenny koppy says:

    Hi Courtney! I could DM you since this question has nothing to do with this video, but…….I'm noticing in your book, you basically create kick-ass winged looks by using tape, using a pencil brush (for example) dipping that brush in some shadow, drawing a line against the tape, and then blending it into your transition color or lid color, etc.vs. the way we usually see it done by people with non-hooded eyes with a felt tip liner or something. Is that right??

  • Patricia Schmidt says:

    You're great at demonstrating eye looks! I highly recommend your book. That look is beautiful on you โ™ฅ๏ธ

  • Slashed Beauty says:

    I have such a hard time working with greens. You did a great job!

  • Jen Walker says:

    I love this eye look! It is so gorgeous, and I'm definitely going to have to recreate it. Thank you for such a thorough tutorial!

  • Sharon Baker says:

    Beautiful look Courtney!!!๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™

  • Laura B says:

    Love the green! Makes me wanna dust off my green shades too ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Rachel Runyan says:

    This look is absolutely stunning! So creative to make lime green smokey. I adore monochromic looks like this.

  • KrazyKat Lady11 says:

    Your eye look was different when you came back from putting your face makeup on. What did I miss? It looked good!….

  • Jess in king says:

    yooooo that lip pulled the WHOLE look together i love it.

  • Gabrielle L says:

    I love this tutorial! You show your technique so well and that really helps me as my eyes have become more hooded and I find that I need to change how I do things.
