We’re officially in that weird winter-to-spring limbo that makes getting ready 10 times more difficult in the morning. When the temperature wavers from ice-cold to nice and breezy, every life decision is a gamble. What do you wear (jacket vs. coat)? What should you drink (iced coffee vs. cinnamon latte)? What about weekend plans (Netflix vs. Netflix)? But here to make our #firstworldproblems a little easier is a makeup trend that will definitely perk you up in this unstable weather: green eye makeup.
The shade isn’t so bright that it’d look weird with your all-black ensemble, and isn’t so dark that it makes you look sickly. “Green is a very powerful color, yet it represents freshness, which is a very big trend right now,” says celebrity makeup artist Rokael Lizama.
Makeup artist Kelsey Deenihan agrees, suggesting that you keep the focus on the eyes when trying out the trend, but letting the rest of the rules fly out the window.”There’s no right or wrong in choosing your shade,” she says. “If you’re going green, you’re going for a fun look and [you] can apply as little or as much as desired!”
