The Eye Shadow Trend We’re Dying To Try
We know, it can be hard to break out of that champagne quartz rut you’ve been in since 2014, let alone for an eye shadow trend that sounds a bit hard to wear, but we’re here to convince you why you need to try green eye shadow ASAP. From rich emerald to frostier formulas, green shadows come in a variety of tones that work with an array of eye colors and complexions. The real issue is determining the proper complimentary shadows. We scoured our favorite beauty counters for no-fail palettes that will take the guesswork out of incorporating a hint of this of-the-moment hue into your eye makeup routine. Opt for Lancome’s palette in Golden Sage for a classic look, up the drama factor with Charlotte Tilbury’s aptly named The Rebel palette, or choose from any of our other palette picks to ensure your eye shadow game is on point this season.
