Xmas Party IOTD: Feline green

Hey girls,
Firstly that's not a typo in the title, Of course I was going to name this post EOTD but I felt like a bit of a fraud doing so as this is not a look that I have being sporting for the whole day also sadly I am not attending any sort of Xmas party shenanigans this evening, oh no, its a True blood sofa fest with my boyfriend up in here tonight!
So the IOTD was born (Idea of the day) wow Im a pioneer! ;) 

Type-torial (pioneer I tell ya ;)) 

*Apply black kohl pencil over lower lid concentrating on the lash line (it will look messy don't worry)
*with your ring finger smudge the colour upwards to create a 'smoked out' effect that finishes just above the crease of your eyelid
*blend over with a clean fluffy brush 
*neaten edges with a cotton bud and (non oily) eye make up remover
*Dampen a flat (lay down) brush and use to apply the green pigment over the lower part of your eyelid 
*lightly blend upwards with another clean fluffy brush
*On a tapered crease brush apply a sparkly black pigment into the crease and blend
*blend the outer edges using translucent powder
*On a pencil brush mix black pigment (or e/s) with the sparkly black and apply under the lower lashes
*using a push liner brush line the upper lashline with either a black eye shadow or gel liner
*Line both water lines with a waterproof black eyeliner
*Apply two coats of black mascara, and false lashes if you have them (I didn't)

Et Voila!

Colours used
*MAC Dark soul pigment
*MUA shade 3 pigment
*Lumiere cosmetics starry night pigment

This is a very messy look to recreate, always have make-up wipes and non oily eye make-up remover soaked cotton buds handy to minimise mess (and stress) and always, always do your eye make-up first.

And now in video 
(This is not the best video, I must warn you but all the steps are there ;))

Also I realise that it has been getting very eye orientated around here of late, I kinda think it could be the next big thing, d'ya reckon Apple might like the idea of the iblog ;)

I hope you are all having a lovely Friday night!
