To create a bold look that is soft and bright enough for daytime festivities — ahem, St. Patrick’s Day, I’m looking at you — Jenine Pizza, the global makeup artist for boutique beauty brand Beauty Addicts, shared these three easy steps to create a surprisingly fresh and subtle green smokey eye:
1. Layer your bottom lid generously with a deep, rich green eyeshadow.
2. Blend a lighter green, like Beauty Addict’s Creme de Mint, an aqua color with undertones of gold and pewter, into your crease.
3. Place a golden shadow on the inside corner of your eye and under your brows to extend your brows and lighten the face.

From a distance, the subtle, shimmery eye, perfected with a pop of pink on the lips seen at Dior’s Autumn-Winter 2013 RTW Collection at Paris Fashion Week is playful and sweet. A closer view shows the real silver lining — a dramatic cat eye with a twist. Silver eyeliner starts from the inner corner of the upper eyelid as a compliment to the more traditional cat eye technique used to line the outer eye corner and lower lid. Creating a bold eye with a subtle, metallic shade may be spring’s new go-to beauty trick. Because who doesn’t want to get a little fancy every once in awhile? Recreate the look at home with these top metallic eyeliners.
