Trend Alert: Aqua-Inspired Eye Color
July 18, 2007
Looks like this summer, some celebs only have eyes for the beach. Stars like Beyonce and Marley Shelton have been stepping out with daring aqua-colored eye makeup, adding a refreshing splash of color to a beauty world overwrought with the traditional smoky eye.
Teal, turquoise and jade colored liners, like Clarins Kohl Powder Eye Liner in green lagoon ($18.50 @ Nordstrom) and MÂ·AÂ·C Liquidlast Liner in aqualine ($16.50 @ Nordstrom), are easy to apply and make eyes pop.
For a more dramatic effect, add a shimmery shadow like Diorâ€™s creamy, creaseless shadow in greeny Pop Aquadelic ($30 @ Sephora) or CARGO’s Eye Shadow Palette in beach-themed Egypt ($28 @ Sephora). When picking shadow shades, take your inspiration from tropical beach scenes, keeping sparkling blue waters and lush green foliage in mind.
