We may be in the midst of autumn, but it seems that beauty looks that boast a vibrant slant, one worthy of summer’s more buoyant months, are gaining traction—at least on our Instagram feeds. Over the past several days, touches of green have brought a want of irreverence to eye-level, dusted, pressed, and painted for moments so bold, they render the fall’s typical tawny, warming hues temporarily obsolete.
First came Ashley Graham, who bordered a liquid line of onyx with an emerald swipe that colored the feline flick a shade more subversive—particularly when finished with an infusion of shimmer, the detail acting as a counterbalance to a romantic French twist. A wash of chartreuse coated Paloma Elsesser’s lids, arching toward her brows in a mimicry of a lime wedge and teaming with a set of coordinated statement earrings to ramp up the model’s slicked ponytail and clean complexion. And for Grace Elizabeth, glamour took on an idiosyncratic guise with tousled lengths, luminous skin, and a cat-eye colored a hazy jade. Looking to reinvigorate your fall foliage-inspired makeup palette? A lid-level remembrance of verdant new growth may be the most stylized solution.
