Bringing out the green in your eyes

Posted on August 30, 2010 by terresa | 2 Comments

I've always been envious of people with naturally green eyes.  Short of having Elizabeth Taylor's eye color, green would be my choice.  I'm not lucky enough to be among the green-eyed but if you are, here are some shadows that will help make the most of your color.

1. As with blue eyes, use the color wheel to enhance your color.  The opposite of green is red, so shades with a red undertone will accent the green.  The easiest way to wear a red-toned shadow is to wear a purple.
How to wear it:

2. Greens can work with green eyes!
How to wear it:

  • Highlight with Champagne Pearluster.
  • On the lid try Bayou Satin Matte or Eden Luminous Shimmer.
  • At the outer corner/crease use a bit of Sphinx Luminous Shimmer.
  • Line with Denali Satin Matte Eyeliner or Masquerade Luminous Shimmer Eyeliner.

3. Try warm neutrals.
How to wear it:

  • Highlight with Prosecco Pearluster or Venus Luminous Shimmer.
  • On the lid use Blonde Satin Matte, Tigereye Luminous Shimmer or Camel Pearluster.
  • At the outer corner/crease use a bit of  Java Satin Matte.
  • Line with  Paparazzi Luminous Shimmer Eyeliner or Espresso Satin Matte Eyeliner.

4. Do a smoky eye that leans towards plums for maximum drama.
How to wear it:

  • Highlight with White Satin Matte or Meringue Luminous Shimmer.
  • Use Ingrid Luminous Shimmer or Quartz Pearluster on the lid.
  • At the outer corner/crease, use Milan Luminous Shimmer.
  • Line with Black Violet Satin Matte Eyeliner.

[…] A couple of months ago, we added our 3 for $30 Eyehadow collections, to make it easier to buy coordinating eyeshadows based on what you want to achieve.  For our first two rounds, we have focused on shades for different eye colors, but in the future we will also have some focusing on “looks,” like a smoky eye or a polished, professional trio.  In addition to these sets, we do have posts on our blog that recommend shadow shades for different eye colors; brown, blue or green.
