You’ve chosen a venue, you’ve said yes to the dress, you know your color scheme, but what about one of the most personal (and important) things of all: your makeup? As much as you might love a dark smoky eye or all-over eyeshadow, your wedding day typically calls for something a bit more classic and a touch more understated. This is your fairytale dream come true, after all! The first step in building the most flattering beauty look for your big day is determining which hues look best with your eye color. From there you’ll be able to tailor your eyeshadoweyeliner, and mascara to accentuate your eyes. Below, we share the most flattering wedding makeup for green eyes. Just remember, whatever shades and tones you ultimately choose, your big day should be about celebrating what’s uniquely you. Green-eyed brides, read on for our best wedding day makeup inspiration.

THE BEST WEDDING MAKEUP FOR GREEN EYES

Follow our makeup tutorial for a look that’ll really make your green eyes pop on your wedding day.

What you’ll need:

Fluffy eyeshadow brush

Tapered blending brush

Flat eyeshadow brush

Eye shadow primer

L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Quad in Good Luck Charm or L'Oréal Paris Paradise Enchanted Scented Eyeshadow Palette

L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof Pencil Eyeliner in Black

L’Oréal Paris Voluminous X Fiber Waterproof Mascara

L'Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara Primer/Base

L'Oréal Paris Unbelieva-Brow Longwear Waterproof Brow Gel

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Prime your lids

First things first: Apply your eye makeup primer to your lids, as this can help create an even canvas for the rest of your eye makeup application (and prevent your shadow from creasing).

Step 2: Start with your second lightest color

Use a fluffy eyeshadow brush to blend a light dusty rose color onto your crease. Start off very sheer using the lightest color in your palette, and once there’s no more color on your brush, use it to blend your crease color up toward your brow bone. It’s always best to start with a light color on your lids because it gives the rest of your shadows something to blend with (which will help avoid muddiness).

Step 3: Layer a darker shadow on top

Dip the same brush into a medium reddish-brown, then add the color to your crease. Once you have the shadow where you want it, move your brush in small circular motions to blend away any harsh lines.

Step 4: Create depth with an even darker color

Pick up your darkest shadow, a deep brown, using a tapered blending brush and use it to place the color in your crease for a smoky effect. Make sure the dark pigment stays on the outer third of your eye so you don’t lose your wide-awake appearance.

Step 5: Brighten the center of your lid

With a flat eyeshadow brush, press a highlighting shade (we suggest the lightest shade from your palette) onto the center of your lids. This will help to really showcase your green eyes.

Step 6: Illuminate your inner corner

To open up the look of your eyes, dust some of that same light color around the inner corners of your eyes.

Editor’s tip: Make use of your highlighting shade once more by placing it beneath the arch of your brows—it’ll offer a lifted look.

Step 7: Go over harsh lines

Is your blending not quite as seamless as you’d like? Wipe off your fluffy eyeshadow brush and, once it’s completely clean, use it to blend your gorgeously layered statement eye to reduce any harsh lines between the different colors you used. The ultimate goal is to create a perfect gradient of colors.

Step 8: Apply black eyeliner

Smudge a black pencil eyeliner along your upper lash line. Don’t worry about creating a super-straight line. Instead, press the pencil as close to your lashes as possible to create definition while minimizing the look of actually wearing eyeliner.

Step 9: Add brown eyeshadow

Use your flat eyeshadow brush to layer your dark brown eyeshadow directly on top of your black eyeliner. Go over the shadow with your blending brush and you’ll be left with a softer look that’s a good fit for bridal makeup.

Step 10: Apply voluminous mascara

One swipe, two swipes, maybe even three. Whatever end look you want, just keep building your mascara until you achieve it.

Step 11: Finish your face

Once you’ve completed your eye makeup, it’s time to move on to your face makeup. That’s right—when it actually comes to your big day and creating this green eye-approved makeup look, be sure to start with your eye makeup and then follow with your face makeup. This way if there’s any fallout from your eyeshadow, you won’t smudge your concealerfoundationface powder, or highlighter when you’re trying to dust it away.
