Get the look with key artist Mikele simone

Australian Key Artist, Mikele Simone, shows us how to mix things up and create this striking acid green eye.


Prep the skin by applying Satin Primer using the Foundation Brush. Mix a small amount of Rich Liquid Foundation, with Satin Primer and Gleam in Aurora. Then buff all over the skin using the Highlighter Brush. Set the T-zone with translucent “fixing” Loose Powder in 010, using a Blusher Brush.


Highlight the high points of the face, cheekbone, cupids bow, tip of the nose and chin with Gleam in Aurora. Using the Blush Up Brush, apply some Cream Blush in Zygomatic on the cheek using the Blush-Up technique.


Prep the eyelid using Cream Pigment in Bedaub, from the lash line to the crease of the eye.

Using Medium Pencil in Sophie, create a defined line from the outer corner of the eye into a flick then follow through back onto the crease of the eye to the inner corner.

Set the Medium Pencil using Powder Eyeshadow in Obsidian, and blend downwards into the Cream Pigment.

Using an Eyeshadow Brush, press Powder Eyeshadow in Pivot on the centre of the eye.

Line the lower lash line with Medium Pencil in Sophie and then set using Powder Eyeshadow in Obsidian.

Define the top lash line with Precision Ink in Abyss and apply a pair of False Eye Lashes in #21 to add drama.

Using the Lip Brush, add dimension by blending Powder Blusher in Bronzerella around the lower lash line and over the black definition line in the crease of the eye.

Finish off the eyes by applying two coats of Masquara in Raven.



Line and fill the lips using Medium Pencil in Interrogate. Layer a small amount of Intense Lipgloss in Absorb using a Lip Brush.
