This Is The Most Genius Makeup Trick For A Night Out

Jason Wu is always, well, wooing us. (Sorry, couldn't help it.) But seriously, we find major inspiration in his lady-with-an-edge creations. But at the fall '12 shows, it wasn't just the frocks that caught our eyes. The bevy of beauties Wu sent down the runway all sported glimmering green lids we couldn't wait to sport.
Yes, green. Not exactly a neutral or a standard smoky hue. But bear with us, here. This look is actually surprisingly versatile, and kinda perfect for a night out. In fact, we're thinking of swapping our gunmetals and charcoals for this ombre option, starting tonight.
To help you master the look as well, we tapped Taylor, our resident makeup junkie, to break it down for us. Here, she'll show you the only three products (no really, three!) you need to replicate this beetle shell of a lid. Watch and learn. And we'll even bite our tongues when it comes to saying we told you so.
