Minty green eyeshadowWe know what you're thinking: You're going to end up looking like a McDonald's Shamrock Shake. Rodriguez says minty green eyeshadow, while definitely a bolder look, can be worn no matter what your skin tone. Proof: Pale-skinned Kristen Bell, olive-toned Kim Kardashian, and darker-skinned Rihanna all have worn the emerald hue without ending up in a "What Were They Thinking?" roundup. Here's how you can wear this hue:
Eyes: Apply Stila Eye Shadow in Cha Cha, $18, all across your lid, in the inner corner, and along your lower lashline. Then draw a thick black line along your upper lashline, winging it out for a retro spin, says Rodriguez. Finish with lots of black mascara.
Cheeks: Apply bronzer on the hollow of your cheeks, on your temples, and along your hairline. A sun-kissed bronze will provide a base for the green to pop.
Lips: Wear a browny nude lipstick to keep the focus on your eyes.
