This spring some of the hottest singers around are looking minty fresh in one of the season's most talked about trends. Find out why this makeup look is one you'll want to try try in today's Beauty Beat. Now sea foam was a huge trend at Spring Fashion Week. Just look at runways like Vera Wang and Diane Von Furstenberg. And many stars decided to keep the trend going by sporting the light green shade on their eyes. So let's start with Nellie Furtado. She's known for her unique style and putting her own personal on her beauty looks and at the Billboard Music Awards her white Alberta Ferretti gown begged for a burst of color so she fluffed a coat of mint shadow on her lids and creases which made her blue eyes pop. but if you're going with a bold shade like sea foam, take a note from Nellie and keep your lips a light shade, like nude or soft pink. And next up the Vampire Diaries Kat Graham is no stranger to embracing bright color. The actress and singer had a seductive take on the trend, coating her top smoky emerald shadow, and topping off the look with a deep mint eyeliner on the bottom. But if anyone is having a sea foam moment, it's singer santigold. She's clearly a fan of the hue wearing it at three events in a matter of days. We loved the highlighting effect of her shadow at the Museum of Modern Art after party, where she matched her eyes, nails, and even her shoes in the same seafoam color to complement her blue Marty dress. The key to this red carpet look is lining the inner V of the eye and the top with a brighter shade and then adding a topcoat of black liner to blend. Then just feather out at the end. Wearing sea foam might be a bold risk to take, but this must-have shade is surprisingly really easy to incorporate into your beauty routine. So tell us, were these looks hits or misses? Let us know.
