Green is the new black

Ladies, if there is one thing you must add to your spring makeup collection this season, it is green makeup!

Emerald green is taking over the runway, the theaters, and now your makeup palette.
I have no doubt that the "OZ the Great and Powerful" in the theaters this month has something to do with the green craze;)  

 One of my favorite ways to wear green eyeshadow is to wet it to give it a nice sheen, then apply it to the eyelid. I love colors that have some iridescence to them such as MAC, Makeup Forever and Urban Decay.

Green liner has always been my favorite eyeliner to make hazel eyes sparkle.
I have three go-to colors from Urban Decay that I absolutely love:
Graffiti, Stash, and Mildew. The colors all glide on effortlessly and stay put...24/7!

If you're afraid of color on your eyes, you can ease into it slowly by adding just a pop of color along your upper lash line, while keeping your eyeshadows neutral.
If you're feeling really daring, try a glitter liner for evening along the upper lash line, Stagedive is gorgeous and fun!

Colored mascara is always a cool way to add some life to your eyes. Hard Candy makes a green mascara. I like to add it over black to add a little pizzazz!

And who wouldn't want to wear false green eyelashes?! My latest discovery from Ardell...just in time for St. Patrick's day, available online or at any drugstore.

And finally to top off your green makeup palette, you must have Spring Bean lip gloss by MAC
Be not doesn't actually go on "lime green", but just tints your lip with a nice golden tone.
