Bright blues and greens were all over the runways at the NYFW Spring 2014 shows, and I think we will continue to see these oceanic colors all through the summer. Martha Lynn here, and if you are too timid to go full on 80โ€™s with a bold eye shadow combo, a soft shimmer of color is the perfect way to try this trend out. Layer it on top of your favorite neutrals from your everyday makeup bag, and leave the rest of your makeup simple to play up the eyes!

1. Start with your color โ€” green in this case, and cover the eye from lash line to crease.
2. Use a neutral color in the crease and lash line and blend.
3. Using a fine brush, line eyes with a dark powder liner.
4. Apply a light shimmer on the brow bone to highlight.
TIP โ€” For a more vibrant color wet your brush! Green with brown eyes is a great combo.

    This is so fun! I have been a huge fan of green eyeshadow for years but always struggle with going bold with it. This is a fun tutorial to ease you into colorful eyeshadow.
