There’s something about green eyes that is seriously gorgeous. If your eyes are this stunning shade, lucky you! It gets even better; even though your eyes are totally striking all on their own, if you pair them with the perfect eye makeup for green eyes, you can play up your eye color so that it really pops. It’s all about the makeup shades you use to create your look. What, exactly, is the best eyeshadow for green eyes? Good question! Keep clicking to find our list of the most flattering eyeliner and eyeshadow colors for green eyes.
Before you reach for your go-to black eyeliner, consider choosing a hue that’s slightly less severe. A charcoal grey eyeliner can help add definition to your eyes without overwhelming them. This, in turn, will allow you to create a more natural look that lets attention stay on your irises and not your waterline. If you’re super used to wearing black, don’t worry—sometimes you can barely tell the difference, but it still has a big effect on your end look.
Product pick: L’Oréal Paris Le Liner Signature Easy-Glide Mechanical Eyeliner, Waterproof in Taupe Grey Tweed
Directly across from green on the color wheel is red, which means green-eyed girls can rock ruby makeup accents beautifully. While red eye shadow might seem a tad daring, you can always tone it down by opting for a red with brown undertones. The deep red hue is one of the best eyeshadow colors for green eyes—it’ll perfectly complement their color for one of your most stunning looks possible.
Product pick: L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eyeshadow in Acro-Matte
Anything-but-boring nude eyes are the daytime equivalent to the classic smoky eye—and we have to admit, we’re pretty jazzed that nudes are among the best eyeshadow for green eyes. Whether you opt for a negative cut crease or a pop of color, just remember that the warmer the hue, the higher the contrast and the better your overall look will turn out.
Product pick: L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche La Palette Nude in Nude
If you’re looking for something a bit more neutral, be sure to add a little taupe to your makeup collection. Taupe eyeshadow colors for green eyes are incredibly gorgeous, as they can add the ideal mix of peach and ash brown undertones to your lid, which will really make your irises stand out.
Product pick: L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Bronzed Taupe
Purple is one of those colors that’s universally flattering on every eye. When it comes to eye makeup for green eyes specifically, this cool hue can really help you kick things up a notch. As you remember, red complements green, meaning anything with a red base gets a green light for green eyes. So, whether you want to go for a light lilac eye shadow or a deep violet eyeliner, you have plenty of options.
Product pick: L’Oréal Paris Brilliant Eyes Shimmer Liquid Eye Shadow Makeup in Amethyst Quartz or L’Oréal Paris Le Liner Signature Easy-Glide Mechanical Eyeliner, Waterproof in Violet Wool
Want to add definition to your eyes without a trace of black? Reach for a brown eyeliner instead! Just as smoldering without being quite as harsh, brown eyeliner will look as though your natural eye simply stands out on its own. You can also swap a classic black smoky eye for a slightly more subdued brown smoky eye.
Product pick: L’Oréal Paris Le Liner Signature Easy-Glide Mechanical Eyeliner, Waterproof in Brown Denim or L’Oréal Paris Brilliant Eyes Shimmer Liquid Eye Shadow Makeup in Bronze Light
To rock a smoky eye without going super-dark, opt for a silver color palette. Ranging from chrome to platinum, lids doused in this shimmering hue can give off an ethereal look that really brings out the beauty of your green eyes, securing silver a spot among the best eyeshadow for green eyes.
Product pick: L’Oréal Paris Infallible Metallics Eye Shadow in Aluminum Foil
Oftentimes you hear not to wear makeup shades that are the same color as your eyes, but green hues account for some of the best eyeshadow colors for green eyes. The right green shadows can bring out the radiance in your irises! Sage, a brownish pale green, is one of those colors. Whether you opt for a matte finish or want to add in some sparkles, we’re sure you’ll love this look.
Product pick: L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Golden Emerald
