Why you'll love the look: It's never been so easy, or gorgeous, to go green. These lush hues of moss and fern are infused with a hint of gold pearl, so they're far more elegant than earthy.
How you'll wear it: Judiciously. "Just a hint of green can enhance any eye color, so less is definitely more," says makeup artist Matthew Nigara, who recommends edging only the upper lashline in green and blending the color outward with a Q-tip. If you want to tone down the brightness, layer the green on top of a soft brown. Fair skin can carry deep, concentrated greens; medium skin is best with lighter, golden khakis; and dark complexions glow against sparkling emeralds.
