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.
Looking for something a little bolder? Try sweeping on an emerald green shadow, like Lancôme Color Design Infinite 24H Eyeshadow in Enduring Vert ($25), to your eyelids and into the crease. Finish off the look by lining your top lash lines with black eyeliner and coating your lashes with two or three coats of a lengthening mascara.

For a sexy evening look, opt for an emerald green smoky eye look. Try Shiseido Luminizing Satin Eye Color Trio in Jungle ($33).
Go out of your comfort zone and paint one strand (or more if you dare) of hair emerald green with Temporary Streekers in Green ($12). I’ve had just about enough of pink dip-dyed ends, but a few green streaks of hair could look pretty fierce. FYI: It washes out pretty easily too.
