There’s just something about green eyes that is seriously gorgeous. If this is your eye color, then lucky you! And when you pair your peepers with the right makeup shades, you can play up your green eye color so that it really pops. What, exactly, are the best hues to wear when you have green eyes, though? Below, find our list of the most flattering makeup shades for this particular eye color.
Before you reach for your go-to black eyeliner, consider choosing a hue that’s slightly less severe. A charcoal gray 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.
Product pick: L’Oréal Paris Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner in Charcoal
Directly across from green on the color wheel is red, which means green-eyed girls can rock ruby makeup accents beautifully. While red eye makeup might seem a tad daring, you can always paint on a classic cherry pucker which, although located below your eyes, will still perfectly complement them for one of your most stunning looks possible.
Product pick: L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Collection Exclusive Red Lipcolor in Liya’s Red
Nude multitoned eyes are the daytime equivalent to the classic smoky eye—and we have to admit, we’re pretty jazzed that they flatter green eyes perfectly. Whether you opt for bronze, copper, champagne, or rose gold, 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
If you’re looking for something a bit more neutral than the gold spectrum, be sure to add a little taupe to your collection. Incredible gorg for green eyes, taupe can add the ideal mix of peach and ash brown undertones to your lid to 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 with every eye. And for green eyes specifically, this cool hue can really help you kick things up a notch. Since green’s complementary color is red on the color wheel, anything with a red base gets a green light for green eyes. So, whether you want to go for a light lilac or a deep violet, eyeliner or eye shadow, the options are vast and varied!
Product pick: L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eye Shadow in Shady Violet
Want to add definition to your eyes without any traces of black? Just 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.
Product pick: L’Oréal Paris Infallible Never Fail Eyeliner in Brown
Want to rock a smoky eye without going super-dark? Opt for a silver palette instead! Ranging from chrome to platinum, lids doused in this shimmering hue can give off an ethereal look that brings out the beauty in your green eyes.
Product pick: L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Quads in Cookies & Cream
Oftentimes we’re told not to mix eye colors with the same makeup shades, but when it comes to green eyes, certain 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 the look.
Product pick: L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Golden Sage
Who said only your eyes can have fun? Just like warm eye shadow hues can bring attention to your eyes, a pop of blush can have the same impact. When choosing your blush, opt for a warm peach color—such as the one found in the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Blush palette—to sculpt your face while drawing attention to your rare gems.
