Hi there! I’ve got a Year of the Water Snake Makeup Tutorial for you.
Step 1 – Prime Your Eyelids using Too Faced Shadow Insurance.
Step 2 – Apply a dark green base using your finger or synthetic brush.
Phyrra suggests: Addiction NV Trendy gel eyeliner or Milani Shadow Eyez in Safari Green.
Step 3 – Apply a Dark Green Shadow. I used MAC Humid.
Phyrra suggests: Urban Decay Mildew or BFTE Secret Garden.
Step 4 – Blend it all out with a fluffy brush.
Step 5 – Apply a matte black shadow, such as Mac Carbon on the outer and feather it lightly onto the crease. Keep blending/adding more until you’re happy with the result.
Phyrra suggests: Sugarpill Bulletproof or Milani Pitch Black
Step 6 – Take a shimmery white shadow that reflects blue, and pat it on the center of your lid using a damp brush, making sure it stays right on the center. Here I used Sugarpill Lumi
Step 7 – Line your upper lash line using black liner, and the waterline using a green pencil. Add Humid to the lower lash line in layers to ‘smoke’ it out. Apply mascara. To upper and lower lashes.
Step 8 – Apply false lashes, and add Lumi to the tear duct to highlight.
Thanks for the tutorial, Aranza! I love this sultry green look!

Oh wow this is so beautiful! I love it!
This is gorgeous!
That is fantastic! I know it’s not the focus of the look, but can I ask what lip colour she is wearing? It’s exactly what I’m looking for!
Gabrielle_ I Am wearing a brown toned lipliner in the entire lip, Mac Marquese D’ lipstick (gorgeous nude that is actually wearable on its own) and I added Mac Florambundance lipglass on top.
