♕ The Pokémon Series ~ Leafeon ♕
{Eeveelutions Mini Series}

Happy weekend everyone! I have a new episode of The Pokémon Series for you today :D We are done with Gen II eeveelutions so now we are going to see Gen IV eeveelutions (in case you're wondering, eeveelutions are release every other generations): Leafeon, the grass type evolution, and Glaceon, the ice type one. Today I am going to show Leafeon, one of the cutest and sweetest eeveelutions ♥_♥ I'd like to dedicate this look to my friend Lyra, as I know Leafeon is one of her favourites ♥

Leafeon, the Verdant Pokémon.
Type: Grass
"It basically does not fight. With cells similar to those of plants, it can perform photosynthesis. When you see Leafeon asleep in a patch of sunshine, you'll know it is using photosynthesis to produce clean air."

I've always loved the fact the Leafeon has such a peaceful nature: shy, calm and pacifistic, a Pokémon that avoid fighting (unless when needed) and needs sunlight everyday. I also love its colours: cream fur with brownish paws, eyes and inner ears, with green, leaf-like tail and ears with matching tufts on its head and body.

I did my best to create a proper look for this Pokémon and, must say, I'm really really happy with the final outcome. It's exactly what I had in my mind, in every single detail - especially the colours: I remember spending quite some time trying to select each shade, to find the best ones, but it was worth it! *__*

After priming my lids I created the basic design, as a guide, with two eyepencil: I applied the ivory one all over the lid, while I used the bright green one to draw the leaf-like outer shape. I used the same pencils on the lower lid too. Then I applied the matching eyeshadows: a pale cream pigment on the lid and a bright jade green (Jade Pearl by NYX Cosmetics) on the outer corner, following the leaf design I previously made; same on the lower lid. I blended the green into the cream shade, obtaining a smooth transition with no need of using a third shade. On the crease I applied/blended a soft touch of Narciso, on the brow bone I applied Antique White while on the inner corner I applied Atom (all shades by NABLA Cosmetics).

Now the brown details. This Pokémon required a brown eyeliner (of course, black would be really out of place here), so this time I used a dark brow pigment instead of my usual black one to create the eyeliner. I kept the line really thin, because I didn't want it to overwhelm the lid shades.
On the lower lid (and waterline) I used a paler and brighter brown pigment that matches perfectly Leafeon's paws and eyes (and honestly I think I should have used this one for the liner too XD).
I completed this look by applying false lashes and mascara, as always, and defining my brows :D This was one of my very first time using Brow Pot in Mars by NABLA - and you can probably tell because I really overdid and packed on too much product XDDD
