When it comes to make-up, green is probably not your first colour of choice, but you’ll be seeing a lot more of this vibrant hue over the coming year. Colour forecaster Pantone recently announced their shade of the year – a vivid green, aptly named Greenery.
According to Pantone, the shade is symbolic of new beginnings evoking the first days of Spring when nature’s green revive, restore and renew.
“Where beauty is concerned, it’s the ultimate personal display of boldness and vitality,” says Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Colour Institute.
While green make-up may not be immediately appealing, the colour is much easier to wear than you may think.
Try New CID i-Colour in Moss. This lush green cream eyeshadow makes brown eyes pop and looks striking against a tan. Use an eyeshadow brush to apply it as a wash of colour across the entire lid, as seen on actress Felicity Jones at the Golden Globes. Alternatively, use it as a liner on the upper lash line, for a more subtle pop of colour.
