Bye Living Coral, Green-Coloured Make Up Is Taking Over

Living Coral has served a long term as the hottest colour in 2019, but alas, Pantone has spoken and it's time to stash away those coral-coloured beauty products. Enter: green-coloured makeup.

Guacamole is not just the favourite topping of every millennial’s toast at Saturday brunches anymore. This muted green shade is now the coolest colour that you’ll want to be spotted dead in. The colour authority Pantone has spoken and we hear it loud and clear. The muted green shade is now F/W’19’s trendiest colour. So, step aside Living Coral. We took it upon ourselves to round up the green-coloured makeup products that will help you pull off the colour seamlessly.

Nars Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner In Rue Di Rivoli, $40 from Sephora
This automatic eyeliner is rich, creamy, and glides on smoothly. It promises drama for your eyes with its pigmented colour and 12-hour longevity without smearing or caking. Nars Single Eye Shadow - Shimmer Finish In Night Porter, $33 from Sephora
Nars wants you stand out, show off, and impress with their electric pops of colour and glittering metallics. Wear this opulent emerald green shade in place of the black shadow that you smudge out in the outer area of your eye socket for starters or pack it all over the lids on days when you want to shine. Guerlain Rouge G Customizable Lipstick Refill In N111, $48 from Sephora
Guerlain’s first customisable lipstick is the beauty fiend’s travel lippie essential. It features a mirror that folds out from the lipstick case, for easy reapplication when you’re out and about. This fancy forest green shade screams fun with a side of sophistication. Burberry Beauty Wet & Dry Silk Eye Shadow In Aqua Green No. 309, USD$25.35 (S$34.50) from Net-a-Porter
Burberry sought inspiration from the archives of the brand’s Spring/Summer’15 runway – a collection dubbed ‘The Birds and The Bees’, which heavily featured varied hues of green. Tailor the intensity of this satin-soft powder to your own liking. For intense payoff, dampen a brush and sweep over the entire lid or top lash line. Huda Beauty Obsessions Precious Stones Eyeshadow Palette In Emerald, $55 from Sephora
This compact palette of nine pigmented mattes and shimmer shades is ideal for on-the-go midday touch-ups or when find yourself in situations where you’re pressed for time and have to crunch your makeup routine into your travel time. Its large mirror and versatile shades allow the freedom to create everyday looks and bold looks. Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner In Intense Jade, $32 from Sephora
As its name implies, it’s an eyeliner that intends on staying all day. The fine marker-like tip offers precise application, even for novices. It gives you the luxury of thin, precise lines, to thick, dramatic strokes. Stila Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow In Vivid Jade, $35 from Sephora
You don’t need to be a fervent follower of Stila beauty to know that its liquid eyeshadow has been in the spotlight for coming through with gleaming foiled payoff. It’s non-tacky, non-transfer, adhesive base means minimal fallout with no primer needed. Popular in its iconic ‘Kitten’ shade, this lush green shade is equally stunning. Apply a sheer layer for a wearable daytime look and layer on more pigment when drinks hour approaches. Fenty Beauty Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick In Midnight Wasabi, $28 from Sephora
You don’t have to worry about this green Fenty Beauty lipstick making you look washed out because Rih Rih designed her lipstick range to flatter every skin tone. Plus, Rihanna herself has worn this shade. And if it’s good enough for her, it definitely is good enough for us. Kjaer Weis Cream Eye Shadow In Sublime, US$38.02 (S$51.80) from Net-a-Porter
Make the switch from the snooze-worthy brown/black smokey eye look by wearing this deep green as part of an olive smokey eye instead. The blendable formula smoothly glides over lids, delivering rich colour payoff before drying to a velvety finish. Nutrient-rich coconut and sunflower seed oils moisturise and nourish the skin of your eyelids simultaneously. Surratt Beauty Lip Lustre In Faux Pas 17, US$32.95 (S$44.90) from Net-a-Porter
And if you still find the colour too daunting to be incorporated into your daily looks, turn to Surratt Beauty’s Lip Lustre gloss in this sheer mint shade that’s flecked with shimmer for a sparkly finish. Wear it on its own as a light wash of minty iridescence on your pretty pouters or use it atop a lip colour as added shine.
