Makeup That Will Make Green Eyes Pop
Did you know that roughly only about 2 percent of the world’s population has green eyes? This makes green eyes the rarest eye color of them all. And because of this rarity, people with this eye color are usually viewed as mysterious. Other personality traits associated with this eyeshade are intelligence, curiosity, and mischievousness. I feel like this description has us sounding like cats.
In my family, there were four of us with green eyes. My mother had really light blue-green eyes. My younger brother and I have a darker shade that’s very similar to each other, and my little sister, whose eyes started out blue but later became more seafoam green.
An interesting little fact is that no two people have the exact same shade of eye color, with the exception of identical twins. But whether your eyes are emerald or sage green, these makeup colors will make your gorgeous green eyes stand out.
Makeup That Will Make Green Eyes Pop
Of course, we all have our own personal preferences, and everyone can do what they like. But in general, when looking for complementary eyeshadow shades, choose contrasting colors. On the color wheel, red is directly across from green. Therefore brown, pink, and purple eyeshadows with warm red tones will make green eyes pop the most.
The finish of your eyeshadow can completely change the mood of your overall look as well. A matte brown shadow will look very nice but minimal. The same shade of brown in a shimmery finish can make the same look glam. Play around with different finishes and textures to discover what you like the most.
And lastly, to really make the most of your shadow, always start off by applying an eyeshadow primer like this one from Benefit Cosmetics to your eyelid first. This first step will create an even base that will help brighten eyeshadows, as well as help eye makeup stay put throughout the day and minimize creasing.
Stick to the warmer shades of nude colors, the warmer the color, the greater the contrast. You can create a quick and easy daily look with a nude eyeshadow that’s anything but boring.
Shades of Pink
Remember that red is directly across from green on the color wheel, so red and pink compliments green eyes beautifully. Pink is a bit less daring than red shadow and looks stunning on green eyes.
All Shades of Purple
Pretty much all shades of purple eyeshadows will make green eyes pop. It will bring out the yellow in eyes that are more golden green and also make hazel eyes appear even greener. By extending the shadow up and out at the outer corner of your eye, you can create a sultry cat eye.
Create mesmerizing looks with pink-toned coppery shades of eyeshadow. These rose gold eye shadows are my favorite for subtle glam.
Dewy skin is beautiful on any eye color. But by creating a look with shimmering shades of champagne-colored makeup, you can really make your green eyes stand out. An even lighter shade of shadow placed in the inner corner of your eye will highlight them beautifully.
Every woman needs a go-to neutral color, and for many women with green eyes, the warmer tones in a taupe eyeshadow palette are perfect.
You can create a more subtle but still stunning smokey eye with brown eyeshadow. Avoid brown colors with ashy undertones and instead, look for warmer shades of brown.
Slate Gray Liner
A slate grey liner is an excellent alternative to black for a softer, less intense look.
Adding brown eyeliner around your upper lash line will create the appearance of denser, thicker lashes. Additionally, applying liner along your lower lash line instead of the waterline will enhance your eye shape. Your eyes will appear larger in a very natural and subtle way.
