Beyoncé’s Instagram is proof that she's always photo ready. And, on our list of head-turning celebs, Queen Bey is often number one. So, of course when she does something outside of the beauty norm, we take notice. The past few seasons, runways, red carpets and street style have been full of the "natural" beauty look Think: neutral palettes and nude smokey eyes. So, this emerald green smoky eye that she sported at the Cotto vs Alvarez fight in Vegas last weekend was a refreshing pop of color that we haven't seen in quite a while. Here's how you can incorporate some color into you routine, too!

Complete the look with two coats of your favorite all-in-one mascara. Start with a single coat on your bottom lashes first, to avoid leaving mascara residue on your lids. For the perfect lashes, we love Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kll Mascara.
