Happy Chinese New Year! Gong Hei Fat Choi!
This is not so much a Chinese New Year themed look, but something I just felt like doing.
I'd like to call this the "Miss Pantone Universe" look for play of words' sake :)
This is because Emerald is the 2013 Colour of the Year therefore the forecasted trendy colour, and the key show stealer of this look with my Emerald under-eyeliner :p In remembrance of last year's Colour of the Year - Tangerine Tango I've incorporated that into my lipstick using a reddish orange shade.
What to wear with it?
How I would match outfits with this look is with sharp bold colours such as hot pink, royal medium-dark blues, medium purples, and of course Emerald and Tangerine to orange colours. Using bold colours in your outfits (preferably not too multicoloured) you will be sporting the colour blocking trend. Try to avoid blood reds and bright yellows (otherwise you will look more like a traffic light but not a traffic stopping flattering way), or pastel soft colours. I think it would of course look good with Black or White, even more awesome if you added some statement jewellery (in the bolder colours I mentioned above) to contrast /pop the colours to tie the look together :)
See the tutorial:
The strong attention to the eyes and lips should mean that you should skip the brush and consider contouring with bronzer instead.
Another tip is to make sure you have done a good job concealing your dark circles since the emerald eyeliner is the star of this look and well, we don't want your dark circles to be sharing the limelight...
