    Excellent, as always. My eyes are brown-ish with flecks of goldish-hazelish and I’ve always wanted a nice, natural look. Can’t wait to try this. I love how you mix products for uses. Nice “meeting” Christian!

    As a brown-turning-green eyed girl, I LOVED this video… and my 1 year old LOVE seeing Christian. He heard his little voice and came running over to my laptop to see him. Too cute!

    Oh. My. Gosh. Your child is so stinking cute!!! It makes me so excited to hear my 10 month old when he starts talking 🙂 Also, this post is awesome. I love this natural look. Have you done one for hazel eyes? I haven’t found one yet, but I’m in the market for one.

      I second this. Hazel eyes do “okay” with green eye or brown eye makeup – but they don’t seem to POP the way you are able to make them with the other tutorials.

    Thanks for the tutorial! Gotta say I’m lucky to have naturally long curly eye lashes so I have no need for extensions! And I’d like to add for all you green eye’d beauties out there, if you do want to wear color you can wear any color but blue and it looks great!

    LOL this look uses bronzer as the eye shadow, lip butter as the blush, and eye liner as the lip contour! I just love how playful and creative you get with your products! My friends and mom are always lamenting that I’m too lazy (and bored) to put on make-up to draw attention to my “gorgeous” green eyes or other features. Then I found your blog and you make everything seem like a fun experimental game (especially the multitasking for products and making your own products). Makes me want to try it all! Oh and you don’t promote that awful mask-like, 10-layers of stuff look I see on the streets and in magazines. And you don’t use products that cost $30 a piece. Thank you for bringing the fun back to make up for me, and for your great advice and attitude!

    Btw would a HAC-ing bronzer work for the eye shadow in this look? I followed the link to the L’oreal True Match Powder but it leads to Colored Contacts instead.

    Love your blog, Cara! I found it via Pinterest a month ago and have read the WHOLE thing! My hubs got me a Ulta gift card for my birthday – I bought tons of stuff using your recommendations. I really like the products you recommend and I USE them!!! They don’t just find their way to the bottom of my makeup drawer. Thank you! Can this green eye look be considered a hazel eye look, as well? Or would that be slightly different? Thanks again for blogging!

    I don’t recall ever leaving a non-giveaway post on a blog page, so this is my first! I just wanted to take a moment to thank you so much for this website, your excellent tutorials, and just how approachable and accessible your methods and recommended products are. I’ll admit that I am not terribly confident about how I look, but your site is giving me the confidence to play with my looks more and it is paying off–I started HACing and using the blue eyes (mine are green, so I cannot wait to try out this one!) tutorial this week and have been positively showered with compliments this week. I really appreciate what you are doing here! Also, on an unrelated note, where did you get that lovely necklace?

    Love the post!! I have been using the blue eye look until you did this one…my eyes are a blue-ish green… but this sounds perfect, and EASY! I have tried so many more make up things since starting to follow your blog, I am amazed! You make it so accessible!! Also, I have been blonde for most of my life. 2 days ago, I went dark (a little darker than i meant to) on the spur of the moment, and now I am finding my blonde makeup looks washed out a bit with this hair change!! Any quick suggestions?? Thanks again for making makeup fun again, instead of a dreaded routine! And Christian is an absolute doll-baby! He couldn’t be any more precious!!

    I am fairly new to your blog. I found you through pinterest – the first video i saw was your HAC and it was a total game changer for me. I am someone who has loves anything artsy and creative, and always loved makeup, but completely taught myself how to apply it. Funny…every article/blog I ever saw about bronzed ALWAYS said apply to your cheeks, chin, nose…everywhere the sun hits. That’s what I did, so wrong!your HAC tips and tricks completely changed the way my makeup looks, for the better! Love your eye color videos, have an idea/request for you! On the last episode of Shahs of Sunset Lily wore a gorgeous eye look in light purples. (the scene where she is at her office) I think that look is to die for onany eye color. Would love a tutorial, thanks for sharing all of your tips/tricks/info with us!!!

    Okay so I just came over your site from BarefootBlonde and I read the post about jealousy (love it BTW and can totally relate!!!) but then I clicked back to the front of your site and a picture of you popped up and I am blown away. How can you be jealous!? I mean, I know there are ways you can be because we all get that way some time or another. But, seriously..YOU ARE STUNNING!!! Your eyes are absolutely GORGEOUS and I would die for them!!! Your hair is phenomenal and your overall physique is TO DIE FOR. I mean, I understand the jealousy thing and no matter how often you meet someone who tells you you’re beautiful, there is always someone else you’d rather be like, rather look like, etc. but I wanted you to know that you are seriously mind-blowing GORGEOUS!!! You have no reason to be jealous…You’re like Megan Fox’s doppleganger!!!! God Bless ya, girl!!! xoxox

    Okay, that little tip about closing your eye and drawing a “circle” around it with your shadow to do the shading underneath…heck yeah! Seriously, I have been trying to wear ANY kind of make up under my eyes since I started wearing make up 20 years ago, and I have never felt like it was flattering. Even with soft shadows. For some reason, when I do this, it just looks gorgeous and soft and perfect. And SO easy. Funny how those little tips can change everything. 😀

    What?! First ran across your makeover of your freckled friend- now this for green eyes?! I am well beyond a happy camper! What with light skin, many freckles, green eyes but dark brown hair- I always thought a lot of these beauty rules/tips didn’t work for me. Super stoked to see this and realize you’re green-eyed as well! I’ve come to love them, but don’t always know how to show them love like they need! I’m hooked on this blog now- soooooo glad I found it.

    Thank You! Just bought all the items on the list! Cannot wait to try them all. Had to order L’Oreal True Match and Revlon Lip butter online because i could not get those shades in any store. So I will have to wait a few days to get the look.

    Hi cara, deep golden has been discontinued. I tried some other bronzer and it didn’t look right. Any other color of shadow that would look good?

    How do you make the illuminizer with St Ives moisturizer and Maybeline eye shadow in Champaign Fizz? You mention it near the end of the video.
