Project Runway Emerald Smoke Eye Look by Mary Kay

 the 13th season of Project Runway began airing june 24, and so far {two episodes at this point}, it's been fabulous with many surprising moments. i'm already loving each designer {no faves just yet} ~ all have such unique points of view.

a huge plus about this season is the fact that Mary Kay is the beauty sponsor! as a fan of the brand, this makes me so happy. i'm eager to watch as the iconic beauty company will take center stage each week on the faces of the gorgeous models. when it comes to finishing touches, the makeup and hair always adds so much.

that said, one of the beauty looks {created by global makeup artist Luis Casco} featured on the first episode was a gorgeous green smoky eye, and it's super easy to recreate!

“green is one of the hottest shades for fall and i love how it brightens any color eyes!” ~Luis Casco

the eye products used {all by Mary Kay} include Cream Eye Color in Meadow Grass, used as a base and swept all over the lid. to enhance the color, Mineral Eye Color in Emerald was applied on the outer halves of eyelids, followed by Mineral Eye Color in Lime onto the inner thirds of eyelids. to finish the look, Eyeliner in Black was applied along the top and bottom lash lines {blending outwards toward the corners of the eye} with a few coats of Lash Love Lengthening mascara {in black} to the top and bottom lashes.

other products used:
Cream Blush in Cranberry {start sheer and build the intensity on the apples of your cheeks as you see fit based on your skin tone.}, Cappuccino Lip Liner, topped off with True Dimensions Lipstick in Mystic Plum directly from the tube.

i love this easy, green smoky eye ~ what do you think of this look, beauties?

are you {or will you now be} watching Project Runway?

stay tuned as i'll be sharing more regarding this season, including my thoughts on the episodes, designers and challenges {sometimes, when the mood strikes}, more makeup looks and how-tos {of course}, and occasionally {thanks to Mary Kay}, i'll even be creating my own variation of the featured beauty looks.

  Project Runway airs on thursday nights on Lifetime {check your local listings for time and channel}, and is also available to stream on hulu.
