Mint green is a pretty pastel shade that is perfect for summer. The colour can come in a variety of shades, and you’ll find products that suit your skin tone whether you fancy a gorgeous green nail look or an envy-provoking emerald eye.
The easiest way to incorporate mint green into your beauty routine is with a great nail polish.
L’Oréal Paris’ first long-lasting mini nail collection contains a Wasabi Hint shade that is perfect for those who want a subtle nod to the trend. The gel-based formula makes application easy, and the precision paddle brush means nails can be coated instantly. Try Essie’s creamy, bright minty nail polish in First Timer as an alternative. If you want something with a little more pizazz, try Deborah Lippmann’s nail range that contains a mint green speckled product and for those on a budget, Barry M does a good value mint green shade too.
Eyeshadow can be a great way to play with the trend. You can create some cool peacock-like green/blue effects by working these shades around the eye. For palette fans, there is the LORAC Mint Edition Palette which boats retro silver and mint packaging. It features eight powder eyeshadows, including seven neutrals and a refreshing burst of mint. Or make like the wicked witch and grab the Urban Decay Theodora palette, which contains an assortment of shades that can be intensified easily.
If you want a subtle touch of the colour, try lining your eyes in mint. Both Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Turquoise and Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide-on shadow pencil in Clinic provide long-lasting mint green colour that’s perfect for warmer summer days.
