I looked online at St Paddy’s Day looks, and everything focused on the green eyes, and while that’s neat and all, I’ve decided to do a video with a more subtle eye with a really nice green lipstick. I made the lipstick myself but I will explain how I go about making my custom colours, as well as a few greens you can buy!
So, the reason I say at the beginning to conceal around your lips is you want to erase your lip line to some degree so that you won’t get a funny line the colour of your lips around the outside of your lipstick.
I made the eyes pretty straight forward because I wanted most of the focus to be on the lips. To make all my lipsticks I do use a product MAC Lipmix in Satin which honestly for some reason I thought you couldn’t get anymore, but it seems you can (yay!) I also used some Bath and Bodyworks Liplicious Ice Crystals Lip Gloss for some fun sparkle, however it seems that product isn’t available on the website. To make the colour, I used mostly OCC’s Pure Cosmetic Pigment in Turquoise, with a bit of Make Up For Ever Pure Pigment in No. 2 (Yellow). I wanted to add a little more sparkle to it so I added a small amount of ELF Mineral Eyeshadow in Beachy which seems to be either discontinued or out of stock. Honestly it isn’t a big deal, it didn’t add much to the colour. Last, I added a small amount of OCC Lip Tar in Iced (also currently sold out, I’m so sorry guys!) to try to give it a little more of a metallic feel, but alas it didn’t do much. The colour still turned out great so I’m happy.
Before I got my lipmix, I used to use a small amount of clear lipgloss and a large amount of pigment to get a strong colour. Sometimes I’d even use an eyeshadow. You can scrape a bit off the edge and mix it in, or smash up an old one that you don’t think you’ll use. The lipgloss I used to use was from LA Splash,but honestly anything will do if it’s clear.
