Trend Alert: Lime Green Eyeliner

This season, brightly colored eyeliner is all the rage. It's a great time to play with flirty colors and stray from everyday blacks and browns. I particularly like the lime-green eyeliner trend, because it's a slightly wild but still mild look. It even works for daytime — perhaps with a summer barbecue ensemble?

I've played around with the shade, and I think these eyeliners look best with black mascara and a champagne shadow. If you've tried lime-green eyeliner, let me me know what worked for you.

Petal Essence Triple Accent by Aveda in Olive/Quince ($18) is a dual-ended chunky pencil that can be used on the eyes, lips, or cheeks. (There are icons on each end, indicating where you can use it.) Though this earth-friendly pencil, made from eco-certified wood, is sold out online, you can find it at Aveda salons.

For one more lime-green eyeliner,

Eyeful Jumbo Pencil by Rimmel Underground in Stand Out ($6.99) just recently arrived in the United States! This "wet-look" liner has a glossy, sheer finish, so it won't look too green-green on your lids.

I've never gotten any makeup from Aveda, but this product looks awesome - the color combo that can be used on eyes cheecks and lips, what more could you want. :)

Sounds cool, if not real thick line. Would be good on brown, hazel eyes for sure. Not big on Rimmel, but I really like some of these new products in the Underground Line.

ooh, I like green. I've also tried a blue eye pencil too. its fun to play up your eyes from the ordinary black liner. Watch out for the smudging though.

I use NARS eyeshadow in "Rated R." It's a great lime green/midnight blue shadow duo that doubles as eyeliner when you add water. I love it!

I have green eyes so I don't know if it would work on me, I like the look though.

Green is a fun color to wear in general, though it does fit summer a lot better than winter.

I have a green eyeshadow that I tend to use as a eyeliner when summer comes around. The green is fun to play around with.
