If you are anything like me, when Pantone announced Greenery as 2017’s colour of the year you immediately thought, “How on earth am I going to incorporate this into my beauty routine?” Sephora’s 2015 and 2016 Pantone Colour of the Year collections were such smash hits, but this year’s is a bit more challenging in terms of beauty products. But no matter how bold or minimal you are when it comes to makeup and your beauty routine, there’s guaranteed to be one method on this list that you’ll fall in love with!
On Your Nails
Wearing some greenery on your nails is perfect way for those who want to incorporate the colour into their look in a subtle way. Essie has the perfect shade called “the more the merrier” and Jamberry has a stunning Greenery collection of nail wraps.
On Your Eyes
Some green eyeshadows or liners are more bold than others. Make Up Forever’s eyeliner in “lagoon green” and eyeshadow in “acidic green” are perfect examples of bold liners, while Burberry’s pallet “sage green” has more natural and subtle tones.
On Your Lips
For those feeling a little more adventurous, unnatural lip colours are becoming more popular. NYX’s Macaron Lippie line is known for their range of unusual colours, and the shade “key lime” is no exception!
On Your Body
If you don’t feel like wearing green day in and day out, you can also incorporate this shade into your skincare routine! Some people attribute the colour of the year being green due to the growing trend of seeking out healthier foods and products.
Green tea is known for it’s super powers when it comes to skincare, and both Sephora and Boscia have great green tea face masks. Lush’s grass shower gel can help nourish and calm sore, sunburned or irritated skin.
And for those who love bath products, why not turn your bath water green with Lush’s guardian of the forest bath bomb?
Tools of the Trade
What would any beauty list be without a Beauty Blender? The Beauty Blender mini comes in the perfect shade to add a bit of style and colour to your makeup kit.
