Attention all girls with green eyes: this article is for you! In the world, approximately two percent of people have green eyes. Other than being beautiful, green eyes are very rare. If you find yourself searching for the best eyeshadow looks for your exotic eye color, stay tuned. I, myself, have green eyes and that is largely what has inspired me to write this article. These eyeshadow looks will enhance the natural beauty of your green eyes!
1. Gold, Bronze
So it’s Friday night, and you want to look your best. Hold that thought beauty queen, because gold adds the perfect complementary color to your green eyes. The color can be anything from rose gold, (a personal favorite), to golden color. The reason why gold or subtle shimmery looks pair best with green eyes is that you already have such beautiful, double-take features, that your eye makeup doesn’t need to compete. Another tip is to place a shimmery white/ gold color just in the corner of your eye, near the tear duct, to make your look pop.
2. Plum, Purple
One of the many reasons why purple is a go-to for green eye shadow looks is because you can do so much with it. Day time, night time, or the middle of winter, you can find the appropriate look just for the occasion. An added plus, many eyeshadow palettes are tailored with that in mind – a purple eyeshadow palette will usually come with a variety of 5 different purple shades to complete and customize your look. Grab some mascara to top it off, and you’re good to go.
3. Classic Cat Eye
The classic cat-eye makeup is still in style, and I don’t think it ever left. You may have heard it being referred to as ‘smokey cat-eye’, or ‘smokey eye’, it’s all the same. The best thing about this is you can adjust it based on what type of style you are going for – a night out, dinner date, or intense look. You can modify the cat-eye style to what you like best, and there is surely at least one style that you’ll end up liking. Many cat-eye looks require an eyeliner/ eye pencil, which is usually in darker colors like brown/black to best complete the look. And also, it won’t break the bank! Typical larger retail stores like Ulta, or CVS, everything you’ll need to complete the look shouldn’t cost you more than $25.00 at most.
4. Gray And Darker Colors
With this eyeshadow look for green eyes, you won’t just look like a Maybelline model – you’ll also feel like one. What you’ll need to perfect this look: mascara (of course), dark eyeliner, gray eyeshadow, small brush, dark gray eyeshadow, and a slightly lighter gray color. This look is best for the winter months but can be rocked at any time. Not to mention, it will go with any outfit. These colors are essential for the winter months, and they’ll match your wardrobe perfectly!
5. Blue Liner, And White Shadow
A personal favorite of mine, and now my secret is out. I have enjoyed this eyeshadow look for over a year now, and I discovered it by playing around with my makeup one day. The compliments you receive are endless! This look can be rocked any season, any occasion, but my favorite time to wear this is in the summertime. To complete the look, start by applying a white, eye-catching shadow in the corner of your eye near the tear duct. Next, grab any eyeliner of your choice in the color dark blue, turquoise, or green/blue. Apply the eyeliner to the opposite side of your eye, away from the white eyeshadow. Trust me, this look is one of a kind. Rock on, green-eyed beauty.
6. Liner, Liner, And More Liner
One of the best ways to make your green eyes pop – is the add a little black liner to the top, and bottom of your lash line. The classic look is black, and the amount you choose to put on top and bottom is up to you. This is probably one of the best looks while still keeping it simple. Suitable for work, parties, date nights, and busy days. Best complete the look with a gray eye shadow below the bottom lash line, and a subtle gray color across the top lid. The best thing about this look is that you can’t go wrong, and it can be adjusted and tailored to your liking.
7. Peach, Nude, Classic Beauty
Listen up beauty queen: green eyes are a never-ending beauty themselves, so your probably wondering where the simple eyeshadow looks are. Well, here you have them. This look is perfect for every day and all seasons. Many drug stores and cosmetic departments carry eyeshadow palettes for nude looks, so no worries there. To begin, grab any white or nude colored shadow. Sweep across the top lid, and follow up with a peach color in the crease, adding definition. The bottom lash line can be left alone, or finished with a very light pink color on the bottom. When it comes to eyeshadow looks, it is important to keep the season in mind. With any nude look, you’ll be perfect at any given time: rain or shine.
8. Intense, Dark Purple
Last but certainly not least, we have the dark purple/ plum look. This look can be satisfied with shades: deep purple, dark gray, dark shimmer, and black eyeliner. This eyeshadow look for green eyes can be best carried out for an evening event, although you’ll look glamorous at any time wearing it! Not to mention, almost any Maybelline palette should have you covered. So many of us are afraid to step out of our comfort zone when it comes to things like eyeshadow looks. Why not take a chance? You’ll look flawless while doing it, and you may just end up loving it.
