In this edition of “Makeup Wars”, we take on the Pantone Color of the Year – “Emerald Green”. Now, I don’t think they want you to have everything in only that shade, more like use that as a starting point to incorporating it into your lifestyle. So, I try to think how I bring green into my life and it’s obvious right off the bat – eyeliner! (*I’m pretty sure we all remember that I may have a bit of an eyeliner problem. RIP bags.) Actually, this is a good way for anyone that wants to bring in greens to their routines, without going full on green eyeshadows, because not everyone is comfy doing that. Eyeliners gives you a bit of color that works with both neutrals and different jewel tones. Here are a few that I have in my bag:

Green Eyeliners Makeup Wars: Green is the Color of the YearGreen Eyeliner Swatches Makeup Wars: Green is the Color of the Year

  • Rimmel London Soft Kohl in “Jungle Green” – This drugstore goodie just *glides* on and the color is clearly bright; it was a heck of a deal for $1.99.
  • Ruby Kisses 24HR Eye Define in “Rich Teal Blue” – Okay, I’m stretching on this one, but this is a green teal, which does skew blue, but I think it pulls more green out on me, so I included it. So there. icon wink Makeup Wars: Green is the Color of the Year
  • Mally Beauty Evercolor Starlight Waterproof Eyeliner in “Caribbean Sea” – This was actually the first Mally eyeliner I tried and it sold me instantly. The fact that it is a bright green that I double up with browns and purples with ease is why I keep it in fast rotation.
  • tarte emphasEYES gel liner in “Green” – This is a green with gold in it, so it just shimmers!
  • Lancome Ink Artliner in “Pop Petrol” – This was a LE from the UK that I snagged in a swap – it was the *entire* reason I wanted to swap – the color had me from first glimpse. They have a really pretty “Emerald Seductive” color that looks really pretty here in the US.
  • Another way you can bring green into your beauty life is by putting green polish on your tips and toes. Luckily there is so many options when it comes to green polishes you can go as bright or as dark as you like, glitter or pastel, it’s all up to you. And if you wanna be business on your nails, but party on your toes, using complementary colors but different finishes is an easy way to mix it up. Here are a few greens that I’ve got:

    Green Polishes Makeup Wars: Green is the Color of the Year

  • Zoya Polish in “Codie” – This totally doesn’t look like the image on the page, my “subtle olive undertones” are distinct dark green khaki to me.
  • Sally Hansen Smooth and Perfect in “Sea” – This pastel green is just right for the upcoming Easter holidays, and on into the rest of Spring.
  • Sinful Colors in “San Francisco” – I can’t find this one on their site, but it looks a lot like “Nail Junkie”, but they have a bunch of different greens to try.
  • China Glaze Polish in “Agro” – This was part of the LE “Capitol Colours” collection that tied to the “Hunger Games” movie.
  • Maybelline Color Show in “Tenacious Teal” – This creamy green is deeper than a pastel, but not a full on Emerald green.
  • How are you going to bring green into your routine this year? Let me know and after that, go check out how the other lovelies are using green in their life:

      Lovely choices! And there is absolutely nothing wrong with an eye liner problem ;)

      The only problem you have with eyeliner is that you don’t have more eyes in which to wear the liner! I love the choices you showed!!

    • Gouldylox

      I totally agree. There is nothing wrong with hoarding liners (and shadows, polishes, blushes, etc…) Love these

      The Sinful Colors polish is the epitome of what Emerald looks like in my brain. You make me want to go stash shopping.
