Green Eyeshadow Hot For Fall 2011: How To Wear It Like Jaime King
Many of you stay away from it, and stick to neutrals like brown or gray. It's not easy wearing a jewel-tone shadow like green. Let's be honest, green is BOLD. But sometimes, when it comes to beauty and fashion, it's okay to go strong.
Green is THE shadow for Fall 2011. So, maybe it's time you considered taking the leap. Check out model/actress Jaime King. She was already rockin' the trend at an InStyle dinner earlier this summer. Jaime is showing off an emerald eyeshadow she even matched to the bright green in her sexy Versace dress. Who says you should never match your eye makeup to your outfit?!
And even beautiful Jaime admits, it's not easy being green, so to speak. She said to InStyle magazine:
"The whole thing is just eye liner, which is a bold move. People are afraid to do it, but you've just got to go for it. I wanted to hit the trend of jewel tones."
You can wear the green eyeshadow trend just like Jaime. All you need is a great chubby crayon pencil to do the trick. We found one by NYX, the Jumbo Eye Pencil in Rocky Mountain Green ($4.50, at NYXcosmetics). This s a lovely emerald shade with a pearly finish. And the NYX Jumbo Pencil glides on nicely---no tugging. Its acts as an eyeliner or an eyeshadow. The blendability is fab. Resists creasing.
We think it's good to go green, in more ways than one!
