Embracing emerald green

Emerald has emerged as the must-have hue for 2013 thanks to Pantone crowning it as the color of the year. The eye-catching gem tone makes a vibrant addition to any closet or makeup bag, which is why we're rounding up 50 of our favorite emerald beauty and style picks of the year so far.
