Kermit the Frog may have said “it’s not easy being green,” but Vanessa Hudgens didn’t get the memo. The So You Think You Can Dance judge posted a series of selfies on her Instagram feed on Monday, May 14, showing off her beaded BreeLayne gown comprised of several leafy hues. She kept her makeup in the same color family with a mossy metallic shadow that is the perfect summer swap for a classic smokey date night eye.
Celeb makeup artist Bruce Wayne was the man behind the earthen glam look, which paired a radiantly contoured complexion and glossy neutral lip with the dramatic eye. In addition to the foil green shadow, which he boldly applied from the lash line to the brow bone, Wayne filled in the actress’ brows, winged out her liner and piled on the mascara for a fluttery effect. Shimmery $38 Baublebar tassel earrings and a pulled-back ‘do completed the look.
We love the idea of adding some sparkle with a sultry eye, so instead of staying green with envy (see what we did there?), we gathered the best green- and gold-tinged metallic eyeshadows to re-create Vanessa’s look. Keep scrolling to see our favorites!
