How to Actually Wear the Color Pop Eyeshadow Trend

If you get excited about runway beauty trends just as much as you get excited about runway fashion trends then you already know that one of the BIGGEST of Fall 2017 was the color pop eyeshadow trend! And today I’m here to show you exactly how easy it is to wear it just in time for the Holidays! I’m not shy when it comes to wearing colorful makeup, but I know a lot of my readers are so I wanted to share how a pop of color of the eyes can not only look super festive, but it can look sophisticated and trendy and just all around perfect!

For today’s pop of color I decided to go with an iridescent emerald green eyeshadow. I went with this deep color because it looks great with every single eye color and skin color, it’s a great alternative for a smoky eye and it’s super festive. This whole eye look was created with just 2 color eyeshadows…if that doesn’t encourage you to try it then I don’t know what will! No crazy blending multiple colors, no winged eyeliner, nothing hard at all to create this super glam holiday makeup look that is so on trend that everyone will be asking you about it!

Scroll down for the full tutorial and all the shades I used to create this color pop eyeshadow trend makeup look!
