It's So Easy Being Green

with 0 Comments

Dear Sammy,

Is it cool to wear green eye shadow? I'm going to a St Patrick's Day cocktail hour after work and don't want to come off like a club kid.




Dear Hattie,

Not only do I approve of green eyeshadow for St Paddie's Day, but I'm also a fan of it year round! The key to keeping it as a suitable day or night look all through the seasons is to go for softer, unobtrusive shades. They'll add a slight hint of mint to your lids, complement your eye color (especially if you have a pair of hazel peepers), and help you come off more Karl Lagerfeld, less Kermit the Froggish.


Here are a few of my go-to shadows, all from Sephora.

Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eye Color in Moss, $25
bareMinerals Eyecolor in Bamboo, $18
Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadow Stick, $28
