Green & Gorgeous! How To Pull Off This Fresh Hue


Gray: it's the official shade of winter. Gray skies, gray sweaters, gray...people. We dig our neutrals as much as as city dwellers, but once March hits, you've better believe that we are craving color in any form we can get our hands on.
The tree buds may not have started to bloom yet, but that doesn't mean that you can't start rocking spring-worthy makeup shades in every shade of the rainbow. Inspired by Peter Som's spring '13 show, we decided to show you how to create a multi-dimensional monochromatic eye that's modern, fresh, and totally wearable. Tune in to see how we did it, and brighten up — spring is coming, friends!
