Make up look for brunettes: smokey eyes in forest green and a peachy glow

If you are a brunette, try to wear a green forest eye shadow to make your eyes look brighter, a peachy blush to enhance your skin tone and a rosy-brown lipstick to give your face a lift like in the look below...

Make up look for brunettes

To even out my completion I first applied my usual foundation Chanel Perfection Lumiere in Clair followed by a dusting of the new bareMinerals READY SPF 20 Foundation in R150

On my cheeks I swiped a peachy pink blush like Nars Orgasm and I added a touch of Nars bronzer in Laguna just below my cheekbones and on my temples to warm my skin.
On my eyes I first applied the dark green shade of the No 7 Forest greens eye shadow duo along my lash line and in the crease with Nars brush number 12, trying to draw a V shape and then I blend the lighter shade of the duo on the eyelid and just above the crease with Nars brush number 13 to combine the two shades together. Both shades of No 7 Forest greens eye shadow duo are slightly shimmery but very wearable. The darker colour is very pigmented but easy to blend while the lighter one is sheerer. In my opinion the two shades blend beautifully if you apply the darker first and then the lighter one, but not as well if you do the other way around.
Finally I added some drama to my eyelashes with the magic wand of Smoky Lash by Make Up Forever.
To complete my look I swiped a rosy brown lipstick like Clarins Jolie Rouge in Desert Rose 708 on my lips.
