As May comes around, the peak of Spring arrives. Landscapes are luscious with deep greens and apt enough, Emerald is the birthstone of May. It is also symbolic of love, healing and harmony. Who cares if it’s perpetually Summer here in Singapore? Incorporate subtle hints of this rich hue into your beauty regimen or be bold in smearing it over your lids and lips.
Lightly dab this hue onto your eyelids for a sheer layer of colour and blend, blend, blend! Finish the look with a simple, winged eyeliner and brilliant red lips. Alternatively, keep it natural with a pinkish nude lip colour. As night falls, touch up and go dramatic with highlights and a green smoky eye. If it is your first time creating a smoky eye look, the vibrancy of the emeralds will save you the worry of looking like you just got into a fistfight.
Don’t underestimate one simple eye pencil. For the next 28 days of the month, come up with different wings each day. From a sleek stroke across the eyelids to a pop of colour under your eyes, have fun experimenting with this versatile must-have item in your makeup bag.
Anything but tacky, these green lashes instantly add sass to any look without being overbearingly dramatic. They also lend life to your peepers, especially after a long night of scouring online for the best beauty deals in town. Play around with coloured shadows such as purples or yellows or opt for a bare-lid beauty. These statement eyes are easier to pull off than you think.

If strong eyes aren’t up your alley, experiment with striking lips instead. A deep, emerald lip helps you flaunt your edge and confidence unapologetically like how Bad Gal Riri does it.
