Trend Alert: Green is the New Black

Green may very well be taking over the eyes of this fall's notoriously black-rimmed peepers. While navy, grey and brown have always been a close second to the ebony-lined eyes, green is about to make a very bold statement.

The green color spectrum will run from mossy to modest, forest to functional (leave the turquoise and mints back with your flip-flops and tank tops). Applied sparingly and correctly, the darker green is exceptionally wearable with every eye color (not just green eyes... we're not color matching here!). From lining to liding, a burst of emerald adds glam without being overindulgent.

Green's to try:

1. Tarte's emphasEYES high definition eyeliner in green ($18) - a super slim, vibrant emerald green
2. Make Up For Ever Diamond Eye Shadow in Green ($20) - a dark, teal green with shimmer
3. Korres Deep Color Mascara in Grey Green ($18) - a glossy, deep muted green
4. Urban Decay Liquid Liner in Shattered ($18) - a smudge-proof metallic, muted green
5. Maybelline Shadow Stylist Loose Powder in Opulent Green ($5.19) - a mossy green with shimmer

I love green eyeshadows, more interesting than the usual smokey eyes. Bourjois do some lovely aqua green shades with just the right amount of sparkle.
