    Use a lighter color green to then fill in the rest of your face. Create the illusion of fading the greens by either using lighter greens as you go down your face, or using less eyeshadow. (It's okay if it's blotchy and messy!)

    Step 8

    Line the upper water line and the lower water line with liner, and apply mascara. At this time i also applied my blush. I used a rosy pink color. *After you apply your blush, really blend it into your cheeks so that any blotchy green spots go away!*

    The final step is the most time consuming. Apply Rhinestones along the widows peak coloration from the first step. I had more at the top and then faded them out to the bottom. For this step i used eyelash glue to apply them, but Spirit glue would be better for longer wear. I picked up each rhinestone with a tweezer, dipped it in glue, and positioned it on my face.

    Took off that ugly yellow shirt! And in different light (Kind of washes out the color a little :/) All you need to do is get a floor length tight green skirt (Or easily make one) And a shell bra/bathing suit! And your done!
