Charlize Theron's Snow White and the Huntsman makeup

I wanted to recreate Charlize's look in the movie Snow White and the Huntsman. Maybe its her eyes but she looked absolutely divine in some of the scenes (when she is not withering away into an old hag). The look that I am talking about is an olive-sh sage green eye look. Let's begin shall we?

Step 1: Prime your eyelids if they are oily. I just go over my eyelids with concealer or foundation.

Step 2: Find an olive-ish sage-y green eyeshadow from your makeup bucket ( I literally dump all my pots and pans in a bowl :) ). I am using the L'Oreal Color Infallible eyeshadow in the color "Permanent Kaki".  Just a wash of this color all over your eyelids. The color payoff is good so swirl your brush instead of mopping with it.

Step 3: Use a light gold eyeshadow on the inner 1/3rd portion of your eyelid. I like the light gold shade in the Lakme Eye Color Quartet "Desert Rose". You can substitute this with any gold shade that you have (M.A.C "Gold Mine" or if you want a shade more orange-y then M.A.C "Amber Lights").
Step 4: Line your upper and lower eyes with a dark olive green eyeliner. Chambor Eye Tattoo Liner in the shade "ET 03 - Green" can be used (M.A.C Eye Kohl in "Tarnish" is also a good one).

Step 5: Smudge the eyeliner just applied with a little bit of the gold eyeshadow.

Step 6: Apply your foundation and highlight your cheek bones. Her skin is pretty pale in the movie and therefor minimal blush should do. A pale pink shade should do the trick (M.A.C "Well Dressed").
