Makeup Wars Takes on the Pantone Colour of the Year Emerald Green

IMG_8789


With St. Patrick’s Day coming up it seems like the perfect time to jump right into the Emerald Green trend. I have featured quite a few green looks, like my Edgy Emerald look and Etherial Eyre look,  in the past since I had taken a bit of liking towards green late last year. I thought this time around I would play with a more subtle infusion of green in my look rather than the full on green eye looks I tend to prefer.  Using subtle matte shades to define my eye for a basic look I then drew a dramatic wing with a black liner and topped with my Marcelle Lux Metallic Liquid Eyeliner in Jade. A rich, multifaceted, transparent, glittery green liner. This post will also give you a preview to several products I will be reviewing soon!

Certainly not one of my most exciting looks but I think this is a fun way to incorporate some green into your look if you are uncomfortable with colour.
