Emily Maynard's soft, green smoke

Brad Womack and Emily Maynard are beautiful together. Their blonde hair, her green eyes, his blue eyes, and their radiant skin coupled with their chemistry, heightened the emotional Bachelor season finale. In the After the Final Rose special, Emily looked stunning with her minimalist, green, smokey eye look.  Her look was perfect for tomorrow, the Ides of March, otherwise known as March 15, and also for St. Patrick's Day! Even if you do not make it out this week for the festivities, you can still try this fashionable look during spring break.

Some excellent colors to try and recreate her look are Mac Cosmetics Humid and Bottle Green. If you are having difficulties finding the perfect dark green eyeliner, you can always take an eyeliner brush, dip it in Blacktrack Fluidline, then dust it with Bottle Green or other deep green color.  Using the brush, apply it as you would eyeliner.  Other gorgeous greens to use are emerald and jewel toned greens.  Depending on intensity, you can also opt for grassy or earthy greens. Finish with black eyeliner and mascara.  Emily was wearing a lot of mascara, and surprisingly, it did not crack, flake, or run!

If you do try this look, please email it to the talent screener for feature on the site.

Pink cookies in a plastic bag...

... getting crushed by buildings... Pink is a staple color of the season: little girls in pinkdresses, clothes, hats, and gloves with pinkbows, and carnations. Need a nice eye makeup look for Easter morning at church? How about mother's day? A nice pastel, crispclean look like Doris Day? Pink is pretty but can be overdone. Try to keep your makeup looks freshand interesting. Experiment with various color combinations, and do not be afraid to try something new. It is Orlando, so take inspiration from flowers and scenery.

This pink look has an accent of yellow to break the monotony of a monochromatic look. No prepping was done. Mac Cosmetics powders were used as foundation and to provide light coverage in keeping with Orlando's heat as well as the light spring feeling of the season. All eyeshadows and lipstick are Lime Crime. Top Hattie was dusted over top lids from crease to brow bone and from corner to corner extending from where the brow ends to the nose. Cupcake Thief was applied over entire lid up to just above the crease. Abracadabra was "pencilled" in the outer third of the crease and bottom, outer fourth of top lids. Citrus Girl was used as liner on lower lids. No other liners were used due to intensity of eyelash color and eye color. The look was paired with Countessa Fluorescent on lips and Mac Cosmetics Dolly Mis blush on cheek bones.
