Green with envy

Green is not the most popular colour palette when it comes to make-up in my opinion. Although it looks stunning when worn, it is still quite understated.

I wanted to incorporate the colour in my make-up palette but in a subtle manner. What better than an eyeliner I thought eh? Although it's just a line on the eye lids, it manages to pull the whole look together.

I used GOSH'S Green Eye Liner Pen for this. It's colour is extraordinarily stunning and makes a statement on its own. When it comes to colored eyeliners, I think they look best when worn alone for a simple look instead of piling them on top of a tonne of eyeshadow where they loose their charm.

Can you see how vivid the colour is? It's a blackened green which is easily wearable as it has a black undertone to it.

It is slightly reflective but not overtly shimmery, making it suitable for daily wear. 

Plus these come with the extra added benefit of staying on the lids for untill you remove them. Make sure you have a good eye make-up remover at hand as otherwise it wont come off easily. 

Another safe way to wear green is, yes you guessed it right, nails!

This one's a blackened green as well and is called Defiant(£4.50) from MeMeMe's Spring Collection.

I don't have a colour that resembles this in my collection to be honest and was quite surprised how it flattered my skin tone pretty well. It does not look gloomy or anything of that sort. In fact the colour matches up the current season quite well.

These are supposed to be long lasting and have this lovely glossy finish. They come with a 'maxi' flat brush making it easy to cover the surface of the nail in two swipes. This particular one is stunningly pigmented and below I am wearing it in one coat only. Pretty opaque eh?

Just two simple ways to wear green without going overboard or feeling out of place. Go ahead, try out those greens from your vanity and make others go green with envy. *evil laugh*
