Bright and bold eyeshadow has been consistently gracing the eyes of our favorite stars, with green emerging as THE color of the season for an effortlessly edgy and daring look.

While Kermit may lament that that it's not easy being green, celebrities from Lucy Hale to Janelle Moelle are flawlessly proving otherwise, embracing the hot trend. We now understand the phrase, "green with envy" while we drool over the trend that doesn't look to be going anywhere anytime soon - it's certainly a refreshing change of pace from the typically demure looks we see on red carpets. Maybe all that glitters isn't gold, but is in fact green?

This year has really brought green into the mainstream, flooding instagram with images of supermodels including Kaia Gerber, Gisele Bündchen, and Ashley Graham flaunting shimmering emerald hues. Although the stars all rock the trending though, no one does it better than the OG of green goddesses Emma Stone.


Touting the look as far back as 2011, Emma has been slaying with green shadow, the look remaining a favorite throughout her many beauty transitions - whether she's a platinum blonde bombshell or a rich burgundy redhead, the star effortlessly pulls off the look.
