Trending in Beauty: Mint Green Eyeshadow
(image via beautylish.com)
Mint green has been a trending colour for a few seasons now but that doesn't mean that the look is going anywhere. This summer, mint green is back and we must admit, we're pretty happy about it! Mint is such a fresh and pretty colour. With all the different shades of mint; from a pale, faded hue to a bright and bold colour, you're bound to find one that works on you.
One of my very favourite ways to wear mint is with an eye catching nail polish. Here are a few of my favourites for this summer:
1. Essie Spring 2012 Nail Polish Collection in Navigate Her (C$9.75)
2. Sally Hansen Smooth and Perfect Nail Color in Sea (US$5.50)
3. SpaRitual Nail Polish in Delight (C$12.50)
4. Zoya Nail Polish in Wednesday (US$8.00)
Other than in polish, mint never really caught on beauty-wise. Until, perhaps now. It seems like mint green eye makeup is popping up on celebs and on trendsetters all over the place. While greens are usually staple in a makeup collection, it isn't often you see such an intense but light colour on the eyes.
I have to admit that I kind of love this look! It won't be for everyone but the green really makes eyes pop! I especially love this look on Santigold (top left corner) because her dark skin tone really brings out the jewel tones in the mint.
Looking to try your hand at the minty eye trend? Play around with some of these options:
1. The Body Shop Eye Shimmer in Emerald (C$12.00)
2. Dior 5 Colour Designer All-In-One Artistry Palette (C$59.00)
3. Stila Eye Shadow Pan in Cha Cha (US$18.00)
4. Lancome Color Design 5 Shadow and Liner Palette (C$48.00)
5. Illamasqua Cream Pigment in Bedaub (C$24.00)
6. MAC Aquavert Shadow in Mint (C$18.00)
What do you think of the mint look? Is this beauty trend best left to the celebs on the red carpet? Should we stick to mint polishes and fashion and leave the shadows behind?

I love this, so subtle...but WOW! Definitely will try it this weekend at my friend's wedding!
I love mint green. I am so glad it's in style. I have a mint green eyeshadow and when I wear it I get a lot of compliments, but it fades really quickly, even with primer. I might have to buy a different brand.
I LOVE mint shadows. I can pair them with anything - blues, other greens, purples (!) and taupes. It's bright but light, and versatile.
Any color can be beautiful if done right.

I might have to head out and pick up some mint green shadows now! I absolutely love Jada's eyes.
I LOVE this as a nail polish but I don't think I could pull it off as an eyeshadow. Maybe with a warmer green. Love this though!
really love the green on that chick from the "Vampire Diaries"
