Makeup Tutorial Using Maybelline Forest Fury Palette

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)
  • mascara
  • lip gloss or lipstick
  • mascara

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).


8. Mascara.

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!
