You may have to glace twice to see the covert green in this smoky eye, but that’s all part of its allure. Celebs are cashing in on emerald—the Pantone colour of the year—but if the thought of wearing bottle-green eye shadow seems daunting, Chelsea Chute, makeup artist and national trainer at Lise Watier, recommends trying a deeper incarnation (more flattering than black or brown) mixed with subtle beige (think camo print). “Green makes eye whites pop,” says Chute. “And most people don’t realize that any eye colour and skin tone can wear it.” Begin by highlighting your brow bone with a nude shadow before sweeping rich green across your lid, building up pigment gradually. Next, use a fluffy brush to dust gold or light peach shadow along the crease, avoiding the temptation to over-shimmer. Define eyes with black liner along your upper and lower lash lines, as well as the waterline. Finish with falsies or several coats of mascara for salute-worthy eyes guaranteed to stand out from the pack.
