Emerald Eyeliner to Celebrate Pantone's New Color of the Year

Mary's Eyes: Rimmel Soft Kohl Kajal Eyeliner / Clinique Glow Crazy Loose Powder Highlighter in Gold Dust / Blush: Clinique Honey Blush/ Lips: Nars Lipgloss in Giza
Get ready to see a lot of emerald. Pantone has just named the jewel tone its color of the year for 2013 (click here to see the press release). While we still love last year's number one shade, tangerine, we're excited about emerald green, which is still vivid yet sophisticated. To celebrate this new shade, I thought I'd share with you an eyeliner I've always liked in this jewel-toned hue. It's Rimmel Soft Kohl Kajal Eyeliner Pencil in Jungle Green, which is less than $4 at Drugstore.com. I started by dusting on a soft gold loose powder highlighter by Clinique onto my eyelids (that now appears to be discontinued unfortunately). Whatever shadow you use, just keep it soft and simple. Next, I followed with a couple of strokes of the Rimmel eyeliner, winging out the ends into a little cat eye. I finished up with a bit of black mascara and a swipe of natural, non-shimmery gloss on the lips.

The key to wearing this shade on your eyes is keeping the rest of your makeup relatively simple. If you want to be on trend with the emerald, you're definitely going to want to keep this shade in mind as you shop for clothes, accessories, and beauty products.
