Demi Lovato posted a gorgeous selfie to her IG account showcasing a STUNNING green smokey eye—and we are smitten! It’s a perfect summer twist on the classic black, and a shade that works especially well on olive skin and dark eyes.

We immediately called up her MUA Jill Powell as known as @jillpowellglam, who gave us the lowdown on getting the “Sorry Not Sorry” singer’s stunning look.
—She then applied M.A.C Pro Longwear Nourishing Foundation on the center of Demi’s face and M.A.C Face and Body Foundation along with the perimeter. She used an airbrush foundation brush and buffed the foundation into the skin, then went over it with a dampened beauty blender to perfect.
—Powell shaped the singer’s cheeks and forehead using the NYX contour palette and an angled blush brush.
—She then dabbed a bright orange cream blush (M.A.C Casual Color in Hi Jinks!) on the apples of Demi’s cheeks using her fingertips and blended out. Powell recommends very light tapping motions and just a little bit of product to keep the look natural.
—To make Demi’s skin glow, Powell highlighted the tops of her cheekbones with a cream Highlighter (Tarte Cloud 9).
—For those gorge eyes, Powell used M.A.C Golden Olive on lids and M.A.C Humid eyeshadow on the outer corners and into the crease. “I blended these colors with a MAC 217 and 224 brush and circular motions to get a graduated effect,” Powell advised.
—She added depth to the outside corners with a bit of M.A.C Carbon Eye Shadow and brought the same shadows from the top underneath the bottom lash line. Next, she applied a “tiny bit” of black pencil liner along the lower lashline and shaped Demi’s brows with Dior Brow Styler Pencil.
—Powell swiped M.A.C’s Blacktrack Gel Liner on Demi’s top lash line for definition, brushed Lancôme Hypnose Drama mascara on the top and bottom lashes, and finished with a pair of Ardell Wispie lashes.
—She topped the look off by applying Bare Minerals Gen Nude lipstick in Honeybun.
