I‘VE HAD a long standing beauty obsession that I’m trying to turn into a reality.
I’ve felt compelled to recreate a specific make-up look from one of my favourite films.
Its a sparkling green winged-out look that Eva Mendes wears in the opening scenes to We Own the Night which she stars in alongside Mark Wahlberg.
For the last few years, I have been constantly on the prowl for dark green eyeshadows, liners, glitters.. anything that will go on in a deep holly green and I can either add a glitter to, or contains a glitter itself.
My latest attempt to recreate this look comes courtesy of Urban Decay. I used to be obsessed with this brand when I was about 20 and had so many of it’s beautiful silk-like eyeshadows and glitters and 15 years later I feel like I’m falling in love with the brand again.
Junkie is a dark green eyeliner that goes on with a smooth formulation and has a strong colour pay off, I added a layer of Bourjois Little Round Pot Intense Eyeshadow in 05 over the top to create a more smokey look.
I then layered Urban Decay’s Heavy Metals Glitter Eyeliner in Midnight Cowboy over the top to create a sparkly effect.
