Makeup look #21 Garden of Eden

Since falling back in love with Sleek eyeshadow palettes I added a few more to my collection, Garden of Eden being one of them. This is a stunning palette with greens, mauve browns and purples, one of the best from Sleek in terms of quality. Most of the shades are extremely pigmented and the metallic ones feel super creamy, almost like foil eyeshadow. All of them perform really well on the eyes, starting from the way they blend to the longevity of the makeup.
I'm in love with this palette! So of course I had to share with you a makeup look created with it.
 

Even though I have blue-ish grey eyes I am really enjoying using green shades in my eye makeup as they feel so Summery and look pretty dreamy :) I used the following shades from the Garden of Eden palette to create a wild garden inspired makeup look.

If you like to re-create this eye makeup look here's a quick step by step pictorial.

For my face I used lots of highlighting products as I wanted to achieve a very glowy, sunkissed look.
 
Primer: Seventeen WOW! Skin Highlighter, I used this as my primer for the 'glow from within' look.
Foundation: L'Oreal Infallible 24H Matte in Natural Rose, still the best foundation I've ever tried! (review)
Concealer: Maybelline Better Skin in Light, totally under-rated concealer from the drugstore!
Powder: Makeup Revolution Radiant Lights in Breathe, the perfect way to a subtle glow all over the face.
Contour: BarryM Chisel Cheeks Contouring Kit.
Bronzer: Instant Glow Gold Bronze Shimmer Brick, this is a stunning product, but needs to be used with light hand as it's very pigmented and very shimmery, I used all the shades mixed together with duo-fiber brush and lightly dusted it on my cheeks, forehead, top of my nose, everywhere where the sun naturally bronzes our face.
Blush: to add a bit of colour to my cheeks I applied tiny bit of Zoeva Luxe Blush in He Loves Me, Maybe.
 
Lips
Rimmel Provocalips in the shade Make Your Move, it's a gorgeous dusty rose shade with brown undertones and I thought it would nicely compliment the whole look.
 
 
And this is the finished look :)

Let me know what do you think of this makeup look? I thoroughly enjoyed wearing it and will definitely re-create it in the near future. I can imagine it would look stunning on brown, hazel eyes!
Do you have Garden of Eden palette? Which shades are your favourite? Would you like me to create another look with this palette incorporating the purple shades this time?
 
Have a lovely weekend!

  2. Such a bold and summery look! It compliment very well your eye colour! I love that the Make You Move lipstick adds colour but is yet a bit muted for a nice balance. Xx

  10. I think this is one of your best eye makeup, Dagmara and it reminds me of an enchanted forest. I would never be able to pull green off, it somehow looks funny on me so I will sit here and admire/envy on how gorgeous it looks on you.

  11. Wow this is a beautiful look! I have this same palette so I'm going to recreate the look. I've used Fig, Fauna and Tree of Life before but never thought to include brown shades as well. Excited to give this a go tomorrow morning for work! Also, yes please do a purple-inspired look - the shade Eve's Kiss is my favourite from this palette.

  18. Ahh what a pretty look!!! You did a fantastic job! I seldom wear colors on my eyes anymore nowadays (because man, don't I love a bright lipstick), but green is indeed one of the shades I do like. Would love to see a purple look on you for sure!
