Have Yourself a Minty Little Christmas

  With Christmas right around the corner, I thought I'd do another holiday look. This one is a bit more traditional because it incorporates green, but it's very wearable as it's set off by a brown crease and liner. I took pictures step by step to make it easy to recreate.

After priming your eye and doing your eyebrows, apply a light mint color to  the inner 2/3 of your lid.

Pick a darker green color and apply it to the outer 1/3 of your lid. I used a medium green, but you can go as dark as you'd like.

Next, apply a brown of your choice to the outer V and crease. I chose a medium reddish brown, but you can use whatever you like. You could go darker than this, but I decided to tone it down.

Lastly, apply  brown liner, mascara, and a highlight shade.

I smudged out my bottom liner with a bit of  dark green shadow.

The finished eyes.

   You can pair this with whatever lip color you feel like. I didn't show one because I didn't feel like putting on foundation today. I think a light pink or even a red would look great with this. I hope you have a Merry Christmas or whatever you celebrate and have lots of fun with your family and friends. Be safe and I'll see you later!
