With that in mind, Microsoft Philippines has tapped one of the country's top professional make-up artists, Jake Galvez, to come up with a stylish look to match the lucky color.
"Green is a very versatile color that can be used as a great eyeshadow for day or night. It is also perfect for Filipina skin and best with brown or hazel eyes," said Galvez.
"Green as a makeup color is very modern, unique. It's also perfect for color combinations of eyeshadow shades. If you're wearing a green dress or something green, it is best to wear makeup that compliments your dress. You can use something warm on the eyes like taupe or something shimmery like gold or bronze," he added.
The company also asked actress Yana Asistio for tips on what to wear in combination with her green Lumia smartphone.
According to young actress, another way to incorporate the lucky green in your looks is with your outfits and accessories.
"Green is one of my favorite colors. I usually wear green if I want to catch the attention of people," said Asistio. "But since I can’t always wear green I can now bring other green items with me for luck."
Microsoft's Lumia line of smartphones, which are available in green, is available in the Philippines.
