Jewel Tone Beauty

A Lacey Perspective: Jewel Tone Beauty

I could not be more in awe of the stunning jewel tone gowns that have been walking across the red carpet of the award shows this year. These dresses have been so incredible with their rich, deep colors on the freshly tanned movie stars and I can’t help but be inspired (and wishing it was warmer in DC).

One jewel tone ensemble that caught my eye was surprisingly not an item of clothing or a piece of jewelry but a beauty look. Kaley Cuoco’s green smoky eye stood out amongst the other famous faces, and I have been playing around with the look for myself ever since. As a brown-eyed gal I did a similar feel but with shades of purple (the suggested color for brown eyes), but the gorgeous newlywed’s green eyes were a perfect match to her unexpected eye shadow choice.

Below is how to create Kaley’s unique look for less…
