Graphic Green Liner by James Molloy
James Molloy, a UK based professional makeup artist and creator of MYKITCO, created a look that combines some of the year's biggest trends in one beautiful look: graphic lines and the color green.
James started by prepping his model with pro favorite Embryolisse Lait Creme Concentrate and created a healthy dewy complexion with Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer. After lightly powdering with Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder, he added a healthy flush to the cheeks with Viseart Rose/Coral HD Blush Palette.
For the eyes, he used Danessa Myricks Beauty Colorfix in Magentic and Limesickle to create a custom shade for the graphic liner and added a glimmer of golden sheen with Viseart Bijoux Royale (we recommend Bijouxette).
