Olive Smokey Eyes - Inspired by EmilyNoel83

I'm an avid watcher of many makeup gurus on YouTube, but I always love when I see a new post from EmilyNoel83 (you may know her as Beauty Broadcast). I love how she mixes high end with drug store items, something I find myself doing on most occasions. Anyhow, her most recent haul (Walgreens HAULgreens! (Makeup)) she picked up some limited edition items from Maybelline that I just absolutely had to have! I'll be the first to admit that I'm kind of a makeup snob, so Maybelline isn't one I typically reach for... but I have been pleasantly surprised this time! After running out to Walgreens (while heavily medicated and unable to walk without assistance, mind you) I finally got the items: 2 color tattoos and 2 eyestudio quads (they were buy 1 get 1 50% off!).

Top Left: Maybelline Color Tattoo in 200 Mossy Green
Top Right: Maybelline Color Tattoo in 100 Barely Beige
Top Quad: Maybelline EyeStudio in 400 Olive Martini

Bottom Quad: Maybelline EyeStudio in 200 Smokey             

Top 4 Vertical Swatches: Smokey Cinnamon

Bottom 4 Vertical Swatches: Olive Martini

2 Horizontal Swatches: Color Tattoos

(I went outside to show true color in natural light.)

Emily's eye look in that video was so pretty that I was anxious to recreate it myself, but much to my excitement... Emily posted a how to video for Deep Olive Eyes! (Drugstore)!!! So I watched her video a handful of times and decided today was the day I would attempt it. So here's my look:

I kind of added a few extra things, but it's basically the same look. Here's a look at everything I used:

Brushes are from various places: Sephora, Crown, MAC, Sonia Kashuk, and e.lf.

If you're interested in a specific brush, let me know and I'll give you details.

I used a wide variety of brands when it came to this look... this is every makeup product that I put on my face! I know it's a ton of stuff, I surprised myself.

If you're curious as to what a product is, just ask!

Here's my complete look!
