Well here we are in 2013. Happy New Year to you all.
Time stands still for no woman nor fashion and just to make sure you are up to the minute on the trends, did you know that the Colour of the Year 2013 is Emerald Green? Pantone has declared it so, and therefore we must fall into line! You will be seeing a lot of green in the shops and of course that stretches to make-up too.
There is a shade of green that suits everyone, regardless of their colouring, but if the thought of green from head to toe doesn’t appeal, you can still be on trend by using it in your make-up. Gone is the stripe of cream green eye shadow in a block across the eye 1970s-style and in its place is the use of green to accent your eyes, sometimes blended with other colours, sometimes on its own and something that can work whatever your eye colour.
Some key products from the Helen É Cosmetics range to get the look are the Aqua Intense Eye Shadow (rrp £8), which blends beautifully without dragging and can accent the outer edge of your eyes.

If you like a bit of shimmer with your green, don’t forget the Shimmer Eye Powders (rrp £5) in shade 8, 25 or 30, which can also be used wet for a more intense wash of colour. These are always very popular at the shows.

Coloured eye liners featured heavily in the runway shows for 2013 and are probably the easiest and quickest way of changing your look. The Helen É Cosmetics customer’s favourite Eye Pencil with Smudger (rrp £8) comes in four tones of green for the discerning fashionista - Green, Aqua, Sage Green and Moss.
