Makeup for green eyes
Talking about eye makeup what really matters is the contrast and the most contrasting shades are the opposite ones to make up green eyes and get the best out of them. Have a look at the shades:
Peach, coral,…create soft contrast with the green iris, add luminosity and are ideal for an everyday look.
Sensai Eyeshadow Palette Color #02 or Chanel Les 4 Ombres Color #34-Éclosion have beautiful soft colors that you will love.
Purple, lilac, violet shades
New pallettes by Yves Saint Laurent, Ombres 5 lumieres #4 includes 4 eyeshadows in the same chromatic color range, matt, glossy and a highlighter.
Monochromatic eyeshadow Silk Effect Color #47-Violet by Collistar will show a deep purple color that will outrageously highlight the green in your eyes.
Remarkable black and dark grey
Dark eyeshadows highlight most eye colors. Green eyes are no exception.
Using Lancôme Ombre Absolue Duo Eye Shadow Color # G01, My Dear Montmartre, you will look perfect smokey eyes. Dual applicator, each with a different function: the “blender” which allowsto apply the eye shadow over the entire lid.The fine tip for a more precise application to obtain a deeper color.
Beige and ochre colors to dark chocolates, all browns look good on green eyes.
5 Couleurs Designer #708 shadow palette, Amber Design is a good model of the whole color range. Apply them alone, combine them or fade them away, from the inside to the outside of the eye.
You’ll see how they match!
Metallic shades like gold, bronze and copper, apart from contrasting with, add plenty of light to the eye.
Tip: if you combine them, you will get chromatic effects as well as great volume.
Colors to be avoided: blues hades, some pinks, white and silver.
Green shades harmonize with the natural color of the eyes but, in contrast to what one might think, do not stand out because what highlights the color is the contrasting color effect.
These and many other shadows can be found in our makeup section.
