Adding some holiday sparkle to your makeup can go one of two ways: Either you look like a festive editorial out of a high fashion mag — or, you go a little too hard and end up resembling Cindy-Lou-Who. Whatever your holiday makeup style is though — having the right monochromatic makeup products to get your look just right is key, so we’ve rounded up the best forest-green eyeshadow, lipstick, eyeliner items and more to help you get there. Why forest green, you may ask? Red is so overdone for holiday — it’s time to give its complementary counterpart a little consideration.
The right skin care products get any makeup look off on the right foot. So to calm and soothe your face before makeup application, give your skin a little TLC with Skinceuticals Phyto Corrective Gel. This formula works to cancel out any redness and inflammation — and is the stuff that green skincare dreams are made of.
Truth be told, green lipstick is not for everyone. But, if you’re daring enough to try it — or if it happens to be one of your favorite lip shades — this deep green UD lipstick (with a bit of metalized sheen) is for you.
To give your eyes some subtle color without overdoing the green factor, add this green liner to your upper lash line with a bit of a wing. Bonus: It’s a thick liquid pigment and won’t budge throughout the day into night.
Another fun way to add a little color to your makeup look is by using a non-black mascara. YSL’s green version adds just the right amount of festivity without being too overwhelming.
If shadow is your go-to way of adding a little color to your look, this City Mini palette is for you. Urban Jungle comes with a few variations of greens — wear them separately or all together for a cool emerald smoke out.
Lucid is the perfect green-sheened gloss to add a little holiday flair to your next festive look. Flecked with white and yellow gold iridescence, this one is sure to make others turn green with envy.
