In all honesty green is one of my least favorite shades when it comes to makeup and clothes. Because I have a very yellow undertone with oriental skin it’s not exactly a shade that complements me. However if I absolutely had to choose a shade of green I would definitely lean towards emerald, the more cooler in the spectrum which sits somewhat in between kelly forest green and teal, do not confuse forest green or British racing green with emerald, totally different shades altogether. Emerald has just been announced the Pantone color of the year for 2013 and while I might not wear it often I am glad it is the sort of green I prefer. I only own one piece of emerald clothing, and it’s a tailored linen tube top Mom got me from Indonesia. On my face I used L’oreal Lucent Magique foundation, Missha Perfect Concealer, Anastasia Express Brow kit for brows, and an Estee Lauder Pure Color lipstick in Mystic Mauve (from a Travel Exclusive set).
I’m wearing MBMJ stud earrings and over my emerald top I’m wearing my new M|phosis necklace (Php590) in a gunmetal shade which I have been finding quite easy to wear even over plain white T-shirt tops. I don’t usually force the issue and insist that I rock the color of the year with my wardrobe…never the case really but it’s fun to be able to see how the shade can work for you and just how many emerald green things the fashion industry will cough up for next year. I don’t think I’d ever try emerald as makeup on myself, at most perhaps a gel liner or liquid liner just for fun but on a day to day basis I don’t think so. Do you think you’ll be rocking 2013’s color of the year in any way?
