Glorious gradient green eyes and dinner at the Boyfriends!

Glorious gradient green! I'm such a giant fan of greens and blues! I love cool tones on the eyes! Here I did a gradient eye look with the color green, using three shades, a light, medium and deep! On the same evening my boyfriend and I cooked a gourmet four course dinner for his family and their friends! I brought over my home made apple crumble for dessert!

Continue below for the look and dishes!
Gradient green eyes and home cooked dinner at the boyfriends!
Kept all the color just up to my crease and no further. I wanted the green to seem to be a peek but then you'd see all the glory when I looked away or down!
A light lime in the inner corner, mid tone in the center and a dark green eyeliner smudged on the outer corner! A slick of liner and mascara and its complete!
I used all shimmery shades except the outer corner! I'm a huge shimmery/metallic shadow fan girl!
You can use the same concept with other colors, purple, pink, orange, browns! This is a simple way to create more depth on the lids!
I went for this color on the eyes because of the khaki shade cotton dress I was wearing! I hauled it here!

On my cheeks I'm wearing Guipure! It's a gorgeous peachy shimmery shade with a hint of rose!

Products Used: L'oreal true match foundation (my review), Bourjois Healthy Mix powder (my review here), Sleek blush by 3 in Lace (my review here!), Kiss me Heroine mascara (my review here!), Kiss me heroine eyeliner (my review here!), Bourjois waterproof eyeliner (my review here!), Maybelline color tattoos (my review here!) ZA concealer (my review here), Revlon shadow for eyebrows
Coastal Scents smokey palette, I used the lightest shimmery lime and the mid tone shimmery green in the top center set of six shades!
I absolutely loved this look! The greens and shimmer went so well with my dullish green dress and my dark hair!

  Home cooked four course dinner!
Prawn appetizer, ceviche dressing and salsa with seared scallops!
Roasted tomato soup with peppers and basil!
Pepper crusted beef tenderloin steak and roasted new potatoes with broccoli!
My freshly morning baked apple crumble pie!

One of my favorite colorful looks this year and I definitely will be trying this gradient look with another color soon! I think the peach went especially well with this look!
