Look of the Day Gemstone Series: Emerald

Emerald is May's birthstone and a symbol of rebirth.  According to the American Gem Society, emeralds are "believed to grant the owner foresight, good fortune, and youth." Because high-quality emeralds are rare, many are treated to improve the clarity of the stone.

I decided to keep the look simple for emerald, using a glittery green eyeliner with coral cheeks and lips.

    1. The liner has a nice very fine felt tip that makes application really easy.
