Dior Bonne Etoile: Look 2 (with Step by Step guide) Using Brown and Mint

As with all my other looks, this can be done using any of your own eye shadows. Here, I am using only 2 colours from the Dior Bonne Etoile eye palette, and that is the centre shade (brown) and the bottom right shade (seafoam green / mint). The seafoam green can be easily replaced with the bottom left shade which is the darker teal. I have tried both, and they are just as gorgeous! Below is the step by step guide, super easy to follow!

 

step by step

1. Prep your lids with a primer or a brown cream base (optional) and pat the brown eye shadow over it. Blend out the edges.

2. Using a white pencil liner, smudge your lower lash line, only 3/4 way in. It’s easier to start from the outer corner of your eyes, pulling it inwards.

3. With a small smudge brush or a pencil brush, take the seafoam green / mint to layer on to the white base. I used white as a base so that the mint pops just a little bit more. You can always use a light green pencil if you have one.

4. Using a black liner, tightline the upper lash line, and also draw on the waterline of the upper lash line. Squeeze your eyes tight and the line will transfer onto the bottom lash line too. Notice I didn’t wing out the liner. I just kept it close to my eye shape.

5. Curl lashes and apply 2 coats of mascara on the top lashes, and just one coat on bottom lashes.

6. This is to show you that waterlining the top lash line gives you the illusion of thicker lashes.

7. Finish off with a touch of blush and lipstick and you’re done! I chose pink cheeks and lips in the photo below 🙂 My eyes appear lighter brown because of the sun in my face.

Easy right? I think the seafoam green / mint adds a touch of playfulness to the look, and pairing the look with pink makes it girly, but not sickly sweet. Hope you enjoyed look number two! In case you missed the first one, click here. I should have another one for you, and it will be dramatic 🙂

  • That minty shade really freshens up the look, great idea Lily!

    • I know right? I love a pop of teal too 🙂

  • Lovely look Lily!

    • Thanks Tracy! The seafoam green / mint brightens my eyes a lot

  • Oooooo, well played! I too often neglect the “pop of color” look. It’s lovely with mint!

    • Thanks Alison. I think it’s a little playful and flirty but not over the top!

  • Love the pop of blue on the lower lashline..very pretty!

    • Thanks Parita. Does the colour look blue on your computer screen? Yikes… it’s supposed to be mint green though. HAHAHA!!

    Refreshing and gorgeous on you, Lily! Love, love ,love!

    • Thanks Keith. I’m glad you like it 🙂

  • I think Bonne Etoile would be my favorite of the two– the Brown and Mint look like they’d make a gorgeous combination!

    • Yup, brown and mint make a beautiful combo. You can also replace the brown with khaki or the mint with teal. They’re great either way 🙂

  • I looove that pop of color on your lower lash line! It’s really smart to first use a white base as well. Great job, Lily!

    • Thanks Sunny 🙂 I figured if I really wanted that mint to pop, I’d have to use a lighter base. It looks different on top with a black liner too, so it’s fun to play with colours!

  • Oh *sigh*!!! So pretty on you! So tempting!

    • Haha thanks. Sometimes, giving into temptation is satisfying 😉

  • So pretty! I want to try. Nothing stays on my lower lash line, though! LOL.

    • Nothing stays? Even with primer on?

    Brilliant! I used the mint shade yesterday and realized I’m missing a white base/pencil to enhance lighter shadows. What’s the pencil that you use?

    • It’s a MAC white pencil that I got ages ago but never really used. I seem to forget about my MAC stuff >.<
