If you needed any further proof that green eyes are huge this year, Selena Gomez is it. Last night, Hung Vanngo posted a photo of a slicked-back Selena with a set of metallic mint lids.
The soft minty green shade was painted across the entire lid and finished with a lustrous pearly sheen. As she fluttered those lashes into the camera, her green lids glimmered with the kind of theatre we now expect of Selena Gomez and Hung Vanngo – beauty force du jour. Recalling the frosty pastels of the 90s, Gomez’s green eye was a nostalgic take on one of the biggest beauty trends of 2019, and also experimented with an up-and-comer: frost.
Dabbling in the pearlescent frost we loved in the 90s (the same time Selena was born), it was a look we’ve seen across Fashion Month. Diluted pastels tempered with glossy, frosty shimmer; Maryam Nassir Zadeh, Lou Dallas and Tomo Koizumi also played with the trend.
Like candy for you eyes, sherbet-lids can be dialled up and down depending on your preference. For those who seek drama, define the eyes with a darker hue first, then flavour lids with a wash of colour. Or for those who prefer it fashion as oppose to flashy, keep the rest of the look bare and saturate lids in subtle shades of sherbet.
Give this trend the green light and go go go.
