Anti-Valentine's Olive Green Makeup Look

mac sumptuous olive mufe 47 olive green makeup look tutorial
Hello, beauties! Here is my second Valentine's day makeup look and it's actually an Anti-Valentine's Look. I was thinking, what is the total opposite of the typical, romantic purple/pink makeup that everyone does (including myself) around this time of year? My first thought was: navy blue eyeshadow! But then somehow I ended up doing an olive green smokey eye. I did film a video tutorial for this look but there was just no way I could have edited and uploaded it on time so I'll let you know when it goes up later on (probably within a week or two). Either way, I think you should wear any type of makeup whenever you want so, really, these are just regular makeup looks with Valentine's or Anti-Valentine's titles slapped on. Enjoy!

When I do upload the video tutorial you will be able to see in more detail the placement of the eyeshadows but the stars of this look are: the limited edition Maybelline Color Tattoo in Mossy Green as a base, MAC Sumptuous Olive Eyeshadow on the middle lid, the Urban Decay Cobra Eyeshadow (from their limited edition Black Palette) on the outer corners, and Make Up For Ever #47 Eyeshadow on the crease.

The entire selection of products used for this makeup look was:

Primer: Laura Mercier Oil Free Foundation Primer
Foundation: NARS Sheer Glow in Punjab
Contour: MAC Sculpting Cream in Pure Sculpture (Limited Edition) + Sleek Contour Kit in Medium*
Highlight: MAC Sculpting Cream in Accentuate (Limited Edition) + Sleek Contour Kit in Medium*
Blush: Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Mood Exposure
Setting Powder: Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder
Eyeshadow Primer: Urban Decay Primer Potion
Eyeshadow Base: Maybelline Color Tattoo in Mossy Green (Limited Edition)
Inner Corners: Bobbi Brown Gold Eyeshadow (from the Old Hollywood Palette)
Browbone: MAC Orb Eyeshadow
Beneath Browbone: MAC Wedge Eyeshadow
Lid: MAC Sumptuous Olive Eyeshadow
Outer Corners: Urban Decay Cobra Eyeshadow (from the Black Palette, Limited Edition)
Crease: Make Up For Ever #47 Eyeshadow
Eyeliner: Illamasqua Precision Gel Liner in Infinity
Waterline: MAC Chromagraphic Pencil in NC15/NW20
Mascara: Benefit They're Real
Setting Spray: Mary Kay by Skindinavia Finishing Spray*
Lipstick: MAC Velvet Teddy

Phew! Clearly this is not an everyday look (at least not for me) so there were a lot of products involved. I thoroughly enjoy getting ready for nighttime events so this look was so fun to create. I'm loving Sumptuous Olive from MAC so much! Even if you're wary of wearing colors on the eyes you should still give it a try. Since it's a frosty olive green, it's almost a gold so it's much less intimidating. 

* The Mary Kay Finishing Spray was sent to me ages ago as a PR sample. The Sleek Contour Kit was gifted to me by the awesome Latasha. Everything else I purchased myself.

  10. Freaking, beautiful Coco! I'm a huge huge fan of olive green, its so flattering on warm skin tones and ladies with tans! I didn't even know that there was a mossy green color tattoo!! Singapore only has like 8 shades of the 20+ released overseas! I think this is so glamorous, totally would pair this with a long dress of some sort! Greecian looking!

    1. Yeah, it's so so beautiful on yellow undertones. Sadly the Mossy Green Color Tattoo was a limited edition shade that came out during the fall of 2012 or something like that. I hope the bring more shades to Singapore. x

  17. Oh wow, this really is such a pretty eye make-up look! I don't have any eyeshadows that are olive-green coloured therefore i think Sumptious olive will be added on the list of MAC eyeshadows i have yet to get for myself! The maybelline colour tattoo is gorgeous~ I haven't seen any in the UK yet though, we just have all the standard colours unfortunately, but this is really a shade that i would invest in if i see it :D

    Thank you for sharing this lovely look~ I hope you have a lovely day! <3

  20. I know you say this is an "anti-Valentines" look but darn it Coco it's so beautiful that I think you could absolutely wear it for the holiday hah! Really really gorgeous as always; makes me want to bust out my mossy green eyeshadows that never get much (any) love.

  23. Sumptuous Olive is so pretty! I've heard people talking about it but I always passed it up whenever I'm at MAC. Must make a mental note to myself to get it next time.

  24. This is so pretty! I'm usually very neutral when I wear shadow, but I love these colors-- it's natural without being too boring :)

  25. Love this look so much - green eyeshadow is one of my favourites to wear but my eyes are green so I have to do it in small flashes rather than all over the lid unfortunately :(
