BGTutorial: Emerald Eyes
Pantone's Color Of The Year
We’re determined to make 2013′s color of the year wearable…on eyes. Sure — an Emerald bauble is absolutely divine & an Emerald cashmere sweater is quite dear. But, Emerald eyes? We sense you’re not convinced.
Think you can’t sport this rich, lively shade with confidence? Think again! Follow our step-by-step tutorial as we show you how to embrace Emerald on lids. We prove there’s more than one way to wear it! [And if you're looking for tips on maintaining youthful lids, this new Beauty Video breaks down what you need to know]
Supplies: Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadow Stick in Forest (212 872 2681) — Clinique Colour Surge Shadow Super Shimmer in Peacock (212 872 2782) — La Prairie Cellular Treatment Eye Colour Ensemble in Les Spices (212 872 2623)
SMUDGE LOWER LID
This is the simplest look of all. Run Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadow Stick in Forest along lower lash line. Smudge with finger. Coat bottom lashes with mascara & and you’re gorgeous!
RIM ENTIRE EYE
Build on the smudged lower lid look. Line the upper eye with Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadow Stick in Forest. Stay as close to the lash line as possible. Coat upper lashes with mascara & hello, statement-making eyes!
WASH OF COLOR TO ENTIRE LID
This look is a combination of the aforementioned looks. Instead of lining the upper lid, take Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadow Stick in Forest all the way to the crease. Next use the bronze shade from La Prairie Cellular Treatment Eye Colour Ensemble in Les Spices…apply to crease and blend upward to the brow bone. The final look is ultra-glam!
Swap your usual black or grey smoky eye for Emerald. Start with a neutral base to the entire lid. Next, starting at the outer corner, work Clinique Colour Surge Shadow Super Shimmer in Peacock from the outer corner and toward the crease. Blend as you move inward. Ohh, so sultry!
