Hi, I'm Christine. I'm a makeup artist, and I'm going to show you how to apply green and brown eye shadow for redheads. Green looks amazing on redheads because on the color wheel green is the compliment to red. So, we are going to use some shades of brown or kind of goldish colors as well as some greens and you need some eye shadow brushes to apply them with so I have a couple of those as well. I'm going to start with a lid color of kind of a brownish gold. I'm going to take my flat eye shadow brush and dip it in there and apply it just to the lid from the lashes to the crease. So, I'm just going to pat this color on here. By patting it on you kind of get a little more concentration of the shadow and less of it falling all over. So now, that I have my lid color I'm going to go in with the crease color and kind of put a darker greenish into that crease to give it more dimension. So, I'm going to take that fluffy brush and swirl it into this darker green and then apply it to the crease. So I'm going to start on the outer corner, work my way in. This is kind of a mossy green and you just go back and forth and nicely blend it out and with this darker color you can kind of play with the eye shape. You can go more on the outer corner if you want your eyes to look closer together or you can go on the inner corner if you want them to look farther apart. I'm going to take that same color but a different brush, more of a pencil brush and I'm going to use that mossy green as liner down at the bottom. So I'm just going to place it right underneath here, kind of play up that green a little bit more and grab a little bit more green and put it in that corner and use it to line the top. The next step if you want to kind of punch up the green a little more is I'm going to take that flat brush, dip it into this light green and use that on the inner corners just to kind of pop it out. So I'm just going to tap it in there as a nice little fun pop of color. And there you have it. That's how you can do brown and green eye shadow for redheads. There are so many shades of browns and greens. You can really play with it, make the browns gold or make them more grayish, charcoally and the greens, I mean, they run the gamut, yellow greens, mossy greens, brown greens. You can really have fun with it. I would say probably though for any eye shadow application, the must have products are going to be some really great high quality brushes. I would recommend getting like a flat one to put the eye shadow on the lid and a curved one for blending in the crease and then optional would be you know, a pointy one for blending eye shadow and adding a little more dark into the corners. Thank you for watching. I'm Christine. Bye.
