Green is working overtime this week! Not only is "Mean Green" the Blinging Beauty trend of the week, but it's also such a statement color, that it's a must-do for your Fierce Friday.
Leona Lewis, who has Irish heritage, is rocking green eyeshadow used as a bold statement on the lower lash line. The beautiful Brit is a colorful chameleon—taking here tresses from light to dark, her lips from red to nude and her eyes from clean to smoky. And that's a good thing; Lewis always gives us plenty of lovely looks to emulate.
Her caramel streaked hair complements her caramel skin. Leona's skin is radiant and dewy. The stroke of green under eyes is perfectly balanced with the hot pink lips. A touch of color on her cheeks and perfectly groomed eyebrows complete her flawless face.
Get Leona's look with all organic makeup!
