Got a case of spring fever? Yeah, me too. While we wait for the snow to melt and the trees to bud, why not incorporate green into your makeup routine? After all, it’s the unofficial color of the season.
Adding the color to just the corners of your eyes is a really pretty and modern way to rock the bright color trend. While you can try this eye makeup style with other brilliant shades, a moss green shadow paired with an emerald green liner makes this look perfect for St. Patrick’s Day. Pair it with the hottest lipstick shade for spring, orange, to make your holiday a little more festive. Check out the step-by-step instructions on Babble.

So, you’ve got a big night out and you are really doin’ it up. You create some wicked smoky eyes and it looks fantastic… EXCEPT for all the shadow that didn’t quite stay on your lids. Some of it fell onto your under eye area and upper cheeks. You grab a tissue and try to wipe it way but all you end up doing is smearing the color across your face. You are suffering from fallout.
There are lots of tricks for handling the fallout dilemma. Here are three of my favorites:
1. Hold a business card under your eye while you apply shadow to catch loose powder and block it from landing on your skin.
2. Apply a lot of loose powder under your eyes prior to applying shadow. After eyeshadow is in place, softly brush away the fallout using a large powder brush.
3. Finally, my personal favorite trick for avoiding fallout: Apply your eye makeup first. Then use an eye makeup remover wipe to clean up under eyes before applying the rest of your makeup.
Now you know how to avoid or deal with fallout clean up, put your knowledge into practice with some fun eyeshadow looks. My gold gilded eyes tutorial on Babble is the perfect way to add a little sparkle to a night out!
