"A color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony," is how color authority Pantone described 2013's color of the year--emerald!

I'm completely in love with this vibrant verdant shade: It's universally flattering and plays well with any skin tone. And it's a lot more versatile than you think. When it comes to fashion, this color is actually pretty easy to pull off, but with makeup it definitely gets a little trickier. The great thing about emerald is that it includes a little of blue in it, which is what makes it work on such a wide range of complexions. It's all about knowing how to work the shade. Check out a few of my beauty suggestions below and get ready to go green!

How to rock emerald-colored makeup + nails

I should have known emerald makeup would be in this season after seeing models stroll down the Stella McCartney Spring 2013 runway this September in brilliant green eyeliner. This is probably one of the easiest and most subtle ways to rock this hue. Take a pencil liner, like CoverGirl Queen Collection Vivid Impact Eyeliner in Jade ($8), and apply it your lower eye rims. Keep the rest of your makeup clean and your lips smooth and bare to keep the focus on your eyes.
