It’s been a long while since I’ve done a tutorial so I figured I’d carpe diem. I’m using a Maybelline eyeshadow palette called Forest Fury. There are very mixed reviews about this palette out there but what can I say, I’m on a palette kick and I’m a sucker for greens!
Today we’ll be creating this look. Click through to read more!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Maybelline Forest Fury eyeshadow palette or similar
- eyeshadow primer
- eyeshadow brushes
- eye pencil (in teal or whatever color you prefer)
- lip gloss or lipstick
1. First, apply your eyeshadow base. I used MAC’s Chartru paint, which helps the eyeshadow grip your lid longer and stay vibrant. I patted it on my lid up into the crease.
2. Then I took some of the grass green eyeshadow from the palette using my stiff-bristled brush. I patted it onto the middle of my eyelid.
3. Now it’s time to create some contrast. I grabbed the dark forest green eyeshadow using my thin crease brush and blended it into the outer corner and crease.
4. Then I picked up some of the whitish gold glitter on my fluffy brush, applying it along the lashline.
5. Using some of the grass green and whitish gold, I blended over the lid.
6. Next I applied medium green to my out lower lashline, and whitish gold to my inner eye, using my thin angled brush.
7. Highlight the browbone ( I used a pale pink shadow from another Maybelline palette called Time for Wine).
9. I tightlined, or filled in the waterline, with Rimmel Jungle Green pencil.
10. Lip gloss. I used Hard Candy Glossaholic (it has holographic flakies in it!) in Fabulous.
And you’re done! Here’s a couple more of the finished look.
Overall, I don’t think this palette is bad for the price. As long as you use a quality base and apply a couple layers of shadow, you should get a decently vibrant look. Would you buy or have you bought Forest Fury? I bought the purple one too (can’t recall the name right now) and it is similar quality, with some nice bright shades.
Hope this is helpful!

Jewelry, art, music… and makeup! For me, these are all natural ways of expressing myself. The face is a canvas waiting to be enhanced, just like a blank sheet of sterling silver or clay. Here you’ll find an archive of my makeup looks and tutorials. For about 2 years I did my best to never repeat the same makeup (!!), so as you can imagine there are quite a few! I’m happy to answer any questions about how I created a look, product recommendations, etc.
From time to time I have makeup sales, which will also be posted here.
