Picture Tutorial On Olive Green Eye Look With Julie Hewett Eye Shadows

    As promised this is the post on the step by step picture tutorial for this Olive Green Eye Look. Gather up some patience - this is a long one !

    Eye Shadows

    These are the powder shadows I used for the look. All are by Julie Hewett.

    L to R : Vita, Silk, Zen, Olive


    I have listed the brushes I used, as well. Some brushes I used were from Smashbox. A couple were from an unknown brand I picked up at Big Lots long long ago. But I have substituted with a similar brush from Smashbox simply because it makes it easier for a reader to stop at a brand and get a look at all the brushes instead of jumping from brand to brand.

    Step By Step Tutorial

    1. Start off with clean moisturized eyes. apply concealer all over eyes and under the eyes hiding dark circles.

    Finished Look :

    Custom Palettes :

    Over at Julie Hewet they have a new system where you can make your own custom palettes by choosing shades you love to fit into the palette of your choice. Its just like build your own burger except its not edible.

    Very few things that are not edible interest me. So, listen up !

    The palettes are the gorgeous black and white magnetic ones. So much cuter than the regular all black palettes that everybody else makes.

    There are three kinds of palettes available : single pan, 2 pan and four pan. In my two pan palette I plan on adding Silk - a bone colored shade with a tiny hint of gold shimmer. Its the best highlighter shade ever and Vita - a brown taupe shade that makes my eyebrows look happy ! I can then drop it into my purse and have gorgeous highlighted brows all day long !

    Ooooofffffffff...its over ! Its all over ! You can go ahead lose that patience now !
    I just did.
