Going Green: 4 Ways to Incorporate the Emerald Trend into Your Cosmetic Routine
Posted Tuesday March 5, 2013 2:32 PM GMT
In case you haven't heard, Pantone dubbed emerald green as the ‘it’ color for 2013.
Donning the trend by way of clothing and accessories will be a seamless maneuver, but can the hue be incorporated into our beauty routines, as well? Yes!
Sephora Makeup Pro, Sara Biria says the shade is universally flattering, “[as] it compliments women with all types of skin tones and eye colors.” The general rule of thumb is to take note of the undertones within the product.
If your complexion is on the cooler side, stick with those boasting tinges of blue. Working with a warm complexion? Opt for products with golden undertones.
Here are four ways to ways to ignite your everyday cosmetic regimen with this gorgeous green tint:
Layer on the liner. To achieve effortless glam, switch out your black liner for one in a green shade, like Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Covet. Tip: Place eyeshadow in a matching hue over top to maximize the liner’s staying power.
All hail the smoky eye. If you’re feeling adventurous, this look is for you! We suggest using a palette such as CoverGirl’s Eye Enhancers 4-Kit Shadow, since it comes with complementary shades — taking the guess work out of the application process. Because of its dramatic nature, we suggest saving this look for afterhours.
Stick with the outer corners. If the glammed-out smoky eye is too much for you, try creating two triangles on the outer corner of both eyes. The application will create a pop of color that will keep your statement subtle, yet stunning.
Treat your tips. If you’re still a little leery on incorporating the color into your cosmetic routine, we suggest you venture to your nails. Swipe on a couple coats of emerald lacquer to create fabulousness on your fingertips. We love Going Incognito from essie.
