Pantone announces The Color of the Year 2013—Emerald Green—just in time for Saint Patrick’s Day!  Discover your Irish roots (or just pretend!) by incorporating this brilliant color into your everyday beauty looks. Emerald is a rich green, reflecting the vigor of living and the lushness of the earth. Because emerald is such a bold color, it’s best to use as an accent in your overall look. Here are some ideas:

Make Up For Ever Aqua Liner, 4 Diamond Lagoon Green

Use this iridescent liquid liner to put a unique spin on classic cat eyes. Apply matte black liquid liner on your lash line; apply the Aqua Liner directly on top of your base line.

Urban Decay Eyeshadow, Kush

Emerald green compliments nudes and neutrals. Dust this velvety shadow under your lower lash line and pair with a beige lip for a more natural look.
