August is the month of the peridot, and this is the perfect gem to accompany a summer birthday. Peridots have a unique green color and are considered to be an old gemstone symbolizing strength and hosting special powers and properties. They are also associated with love and faithfulness. The flattering green of the peridot can be worn in multiple ways, but makeup is our favorite way to honor this birthstone!
One of the best places to wear green is on the eyes, so we recommend trying one of the beautiful shades of green from our Take Me To Brazil Eyeshadow Palette. This palette features both light and dark shades of green as well as yellows and blues for blending. To achieve the yellowish green color of the peridot, we recommend mixing the light green colors of the palette with a shade of yellow. If you prefer to make a statement with eyeliner instead of eyeshadow, boldly line eyes with our Huntress Eye Crayon or our Fairy Eyeliner.
Pair either look with a few coats of our Loveable Lash Mascara and keep lips simple by adding a coat of one of our muted glosses like Up All Night or Angel Kiss. Complete the peridot look by applying a light coat of bronzer to your face with one of the brushes from our 15 pc Rose Gold Brush Set.
Get ready to turn heads and prove what a gem August girls are!
