We're officially still in that weird fall-to-winter limbo that makes getting ready 10 times more difficult in the morning. We're talking about the days when the temperature continues to teeter from slightly chilly to ice cold, and you're stuck deciding what to wear (jacket vs. coat), what to drink (PSLs vs. peppermint lattes), or what to do on the weekends (Netflix vs. Netflix). But here to make our #firstworldproblems a little easier is one makeup trend that's perfect for perking you up in this colder 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!"
For ideas on how to pull off green shadow and eyeliner — without looking like a Marvel villain — check out the celebrities and models who nailed the trend, ahead.
