Emerald Green is the trendy hue of the year.  You will see this color everywhere from fashion, home decor, cosmetics, and accessories. This bold color suggests gems, money, success, growth, and The Emerald City in “The Wizard of Oz”.  How will you integrate this lush and vibrant color into your beauty routine?  Here’s how to create ZuZu Luxe’s emerald eyes pictured above, from talented makeup artist Karim Orange:

Iguana eyeliner was used all over the eyelid.  Also Casino eye shadow was used very lightly where the green stops but not extended to brow area.  Lastly Leaf eyeliner along the water line.  The rest of the palette was created using L-21 Oil-Free Liquid Foundation, Sunset Blush, Cappuccino Lipliner, and Mischief Lip Gloss in the center of lips.

  • APPLY your pucker perfect lipstick shade directly to the lips and use your lip brush to soften edges.

Mascara Q&A

Do you ever recommend using a primer before applying mascara? Why didn’t you include one in your cosmetic lines?

Most have synthetic fibers that may be harmful to the delicate eye; however I would recommend our Clear Mascara, which coats the lashes and makes them appear fuller.

What are the major benefits with going with an all-natural mascara?

You are avoiding harsh chemicals found in mass-market mascaras. Ours helps promote healthy lash growth from vitamins and herbal extracts instead of mascara with synthetic fibers that just mimic.
