Greenery Look

Makeup Look with Pantone Color of the Year Greenery on BeautyJudy

The last few years I’ve looked forward to the announcement of the Pantone Color of the Year. PANTONE 15-0343 Greenery is the PANTONE® Color of the Year selection for 2017.

Greenery is described in a press release as “a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew.”

While this shade of green isn’t at the top of my favorite color list, the meaning behind the color rings true to me. I picture how the trees and greenery in our world seem to come back to life after a long winter…this is something I can relate to and so I’m embracing Greenery!

I decided to put together a look highlighting Greenery, and I dug around my stash to find something close. Thrash from the Urban Decay Electric Pressed Pigment Palette isn’t quite green enough, but it’s a yellow-green, and the perfect pop of Greenery color I sought!

I paired Thrash with three shades from the Jesse’s Girl Back Stage Collection Sounds of the City eye shadow palette:

I used the first one to highlight to brow, middle in the crease and blended into the lid and the last one on the lid on either side of Thrash. Here’s a quick tutorial on how I crafted the look:

  1. Primed my eyes with Jesse’s Girl Eye Shadow Primer.
  2. Patted Thrash onto the center of my lid.
  3. Added the silvery taupe shimmer shade from the Jesse’s Girl palette on either side of Thrash and into the crease.
  4.  Added the brown shimmer shade from the Jesse’s Girl palette into my crease and blended with lid and up.
  5. Added Kiko Automatic Precision Eyeliner and Kohl in Matta Occhi (#708) to my waterline, and took the taupe shimmer shade and smudged it under my lower lash line.
  6. Added the white shimmer shade under my brow to highlight, and created a wing look with Jesse’s Girl Liquid Eyeliner in Dark Brown.
  7. Added Dior Show mascara to upper lashes, Senna Lash Detail Mascara to lower lashes.
  8. Ta-da!
  9. More Ta-da! Here’s a closer look at the finished eyes:

      Thanks!

  • Norah Salazar

    Judy, green looks stunning on you! I love a deep green because I am seriously very yellow undertone to wear lighter greens.

    • BeautyJudy

      Thank you so much, Norah. Compliments from you always make me feel a bit relieved – you are a MUA! Promise me to always call me out on crappy makeup, lol!

    Goog job, I could never wear this color.

    • BeautyJudy

      I think you definitely must like playing with color to pull it off!

  • marciaf

    With that shade of eyeshadow I expected something very bright but with the palette you ended up with a great look. I thought for sure your article would be with nailpolish but you went beyond.

    • BeautyJudy

      LOL! Yes, I will be on the hunt for nail polish in my stash that fits the bill but I definitely wanted to try and incorporate into an eye look. Thank you for the compliment!

    Love it! Greenery is going to be such a PITA for looks lol

    • BeautyJudy

      LOL I know!!! I didn’t even get the color exact, but it was close enough. I do like pops of color like this in my eye looks so … challenge accepted lol!

  • Allison @neversaydiebeauty

    Yay, love your Greenery look! so fresh and springy. The shadow really looks great with your hair color and pops through your B&W glasses. I love the JG lip color – is it a liquid matte?

    • BeautyJudy

      Aw thanks Allison! Yes, it’s a liquid matte. I’m afraid to recommend it to you based on how you feel about these lippies!
