Be as strong as stone with this jade-inspired makeup look

Green jade, as a stone, has been highly prized by many cultures for thousands of years. Whether used as a ritual material, a symbol of purity and goodness or a declaration of strength, jade is a long-lasting part of history. One of the lesser-known qualities of jade is its strength. When struck, it sends out a beautiful ring. Just like jade, you are strong and you can show that strength with a bold jade-inspired makeup look. 
This look can be fully customized to your level of comfort. Jade stone comes in a huge variety of tones, and you can easily find the one that works best with your eye color. No matter how you choose to adapt this look, you will look as strong as stone, ready to take on the day.

Instructions
1. Fill and shape your brows using NYX Professional Makeup Micro Brow Pencil. Use Maybelline Eye Studio Master Precise Liquid Eyeliner to add extra body to your eyebrows.

2. Mix MAC Strobe Cream in Goldlite with Juvia’s Place I Am Magic Velvety Matte Foundation, and apply the mixture all over your face. Try applying with a flat foundation brush. Use a beauty blender to blend it in completely. 

3. Using a concealer brush, apply a layer of Kevyn Auction The Sensual Skin Enhancer Concealer under your eyes, and use a beauty blender to blend it completely. 

4. Add a layer of Y505 from the Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Cream Foundation Palette just under your cheekbones for a little contour. Use a powder brush or stipple brush for an even blend. 

5. Pat RCMA No-Color Powder under your eyes with a beauty blender. Do the same along your jawline and forehead using a beauty blender and Maybelline Fit Me Loose Finishing Powder. 

6. On top of your cheeks and just above your contour color, apply NARS Bronzer in Laguna with a powder brush or blush brush. 

7. Add MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Soft Ochre on your top lid with an eyeshadow brush. Try patting it on rather than sweeping it. Add some under the bottom line of your brow to add even more definition. 

8. With a round shadow brush, apply the top middle color of the Huda Beauty Emerald Obsessions Palette to your crease. Add the middle right color of the palette to the crease and outer corner of your upper lid. Sweep a little of the middle right color under your lower lashes as well. 

9. Along your brow bone, apply a little of the bottom right gold color of the Huda Beauty Emerald Obsessions Palette with a round shadow brush. Add a touch of gold to the inner corner as well. 

10. Use a small flat shadow brush to apply a layer of Buzo from the Juvia’s Place Magic Mini Eyeshadow Palette to the middle of your top lid. Blend it up to the crease and out from the middle. 

11. Apply a winged liner using Maybelline Eye Studio Master Precise Liquid Eyeliner. If you like, add false lashes using tweezers and lash glue. 
12. Add a touch of color to your cheeks by patting on Anastasia Beverly Hills Blush Trio, Pink Passion, with a powder brush or blush brush.

13. Line your lips with Revlon Color Stay Longwear Liner. Fill in your lips with MAC Satin Lipstick in Peach Stock. Use a flat lip brush to blend the lipstick and liner. 

14. Add brightness to your makeup look by sweeping on a little BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter in Champagne Pop to the top of your cheekbones and temples.
