Maybelline Emerald Smokes Eye Shadow Quad

Hey everyone! Hope you're all enjoying your weekends... I'm sitting at work freezing ;( Buuut I have another eye look for you today! This time I used a Maybelline quad calling Emerald Smokes. I didn't use the all of the shades the way that they are labeled in the quad, but I will be referring to them as Base, Lid (the upper right shade in the compact), Crease, and Liner.

I started out with Urban Decay Primer Potion and once that was applied and dry, I applied the Base shade over my entire lid and up on my browbone. Then, I used the Lid shade on the outer two-thirds of my upper lids.

I blended the Crease shade into the Lid shade on the outer corner of my lids and brought the Base color down into the inner corner of my eye.

I finished up by using the Liner shade as an eyeliner along the top and bottom lash lines. I love the little gold flecks in the dark green Liner, it's so pretty! I completed this look with a coat of Bare Minerals Flawless Definition Volumizing mascara and some Urban Decay Zero eye liner on my upper and lower water lines.


  1. You did such a great blending job! I'm also very envious of your eye color, mine are boring poop brown :P

    2. Rofl at poop brown! My sisters and I say this to each other about various things, including two of our hair and eye colors. Poop brown is awesome. Don't let anyone tell you different. ;D

  2. This looks great. I have this palette in the original configuration. I used the green to create a different smokey eye. Love the twist on the classic smokey eye.

  3. This looks awesome! I've read/heard that greens are supposed to make brown eyes pop, so I may try this one, myself.

  4. Gorgeous, this colors were made for your pretty green eyes
