With Pantone Universe officially declaring Greenery as the Color of the Year for 2017, beauty addicts will soon be adorning their visages with verdant shades. If the idea of green makeup seems slightly ‘80s to you, you may want to reconsider your previous experiences with the colour. After all, Greenery steals the spotlight with its punchy yet soft yellow-green hue, and can easily liven up your eye makeup looks as we wait for spring weather. As you restock your makeup bag for the season ahead, consider adding these on-trend eye makeup looks to your beauty arsenal this year.
1) Sephora Collection Retractable Waterproof Eyeliner in Green, $16: If you prefer a hint of green around the eyes, eyeliner may be a better alternative to an arresting sweep of shadow. This Sephora liner claims to be easy to apply, smooth and long-lasting. It includes a smudge tip on the opposite end of the product, which is said to offer a soft and subtle smokey eye.
2) Clinique ‘Chubby Stick’ Shadow Tint for Eyes in Mighty Moss, $24: Clinique’s Chubby Stick states that it will offer creamy yet lightweight eye colour, in the form of a portable shadow stick. This Mighty Moss shade can be applied lightly for just a touch of green, or layered and smudged to create an edgy smokey eye for the after hours.
3) MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Shadow Eyeshadow and Powder Blush in Apple Green, $25: This gel powder shadow claims to be highly blendable, and is said to offer a vibrant pop of colour. With a matte finish, this eyeshadow creates a vivid statement with its green apple inspired shade, which just may brighten your eyelids.
4) Lancôme Color Design Eyeshadow Palette in Jade Fever, $71: For a more sophisticated, grownup take on the colour trend, Lancôme’s Jade Fever palette offers a mix of green shades and softer powders. This eyeshadow palette includes a base shade, highlighter, liner shade and eyeshadow.
