Seven Deadly Sins Series: Envy

Hello lovelies, hope your all well and having a great day. So as you can figure from the title this post is my next deadly sin look, but before i go into it i just want to apologise for not doing a look last week. Anyway today i decided on envy as i had a clear image of what i wanted and had some eye shadows that I've been dying to try since i got them on Christmas.
I can not tell you how much fun i had creating this and i am so happy with how it turned out! The only thing i would of liked to have improved would be the lips, a Lime crime green lippy would of been a match made in heaven for this look but sadly i don't own any green lippy's so i had to work with what i had. To me envy is something that takes over a person and is almost bipolar as i think you can feel very sad or angry with it. Which is why i wanted a hard yet soft look which is fading down the cheeks, around the eye socket and towards the hair line, almost as if the envy was slowly taking over...if that makes sense. I wanted to keep the rest of the face fairly simple as the eye makeup is rather dramatic and as it's the main feature i didn't want to take away from it in anyway. To harden the face slightly i contoured the cheeks quite heavy and used a mixture of the eye shadows i used on the lips to give them that green dead tint.
