Exotic Green Using Drugstore Makeup

Hey Everyone!

Here’s the bright smoky green I was wearing in my latest fashion video and E.L.F./Cherry Culture show and tell video. Many of you asked for a tutorial, and I wanted to do one anyway, Exotic Green is one of my new fave shadows.  Nearly everything I used is drugstore, or at drugstore comparable prices!

Stuff I used:


Cover FX Clear Prep Primer

Cover FX Concealer

MAC Studio Fix Powder


Pandora’s Makeup Box Classic Pink Blush (more of a brown, but whatever)

Cargo Blu-Ray Highlighter( as a blush, this stuff is GENIUS!)


MAC Painterly Paint Pot

Wet ‘n’ Wild Envy Idol Eyes Cream Shadow

NYX Kiwi Shadow

NYX Exotic Green Shadow

E.L.F. Green Eyeshadow Transformer

NYX White Shadow

MAC Fascinating Eye Kohl

Sephora Collection Black Waterproof Eyeliner

Lorac Black Front of the Line Pro Liquid eyeliner

Dior Extase Mascara (volume and curl city)


JOE Lilac Lipstain (Canadian drugstore brand)

Black Radiance Posh Plum Illusions Lipgloss (Not shown in video)

thanks for stopping by!

    Beautiful look! I love using greens, I might try this out tomorrow.
    btw, Where did you get the things that you are using to hold you hair back in this video? They are such a great idea!
    I usually use a barrette and then have to re-straighten the crease out after doing my makeup

    Glad to see what you used because when I saw you wearing this look last weekend in the haul video you did I fell in love with it. I used what I had last weekend to re-create it. My husband loved it on me!

    Can you do a video that explains how to get the cool purple streaks you put in your hair? I love how they look like they are underneath the pink and just kind of peek through.

    Also, are you going to IMATS this June?

    I know you said JOE is a Canadian brand, but do you know of any websites that we could possibly get it from? That lip color is AWESOME!

    You’ve so inspired me to try out that look (I have pink hair too – I think its a great look for us pink-haired ones)

    I’m dying for that Canadian Drug Store Haul video! Do you have any other JOE products? I just recently bought some JOE eyeshadows because they had a $1 off coupon (so I paid $3.00), and they’re amazing. I’ve been eyeing the lip stains for a while, and you just sold me on them! Absolutely gorgeous look.
