The Best Wedding Makeup Idea for Green Eyes The Best Wedding Makeup Idea for Green Eyes The Best Wedding Makeup Idea for Green Eyes

You have your venue, you’ve said yes to the dress, you know your color scheme, but what about one of the most personal things of all: your makeup? As much as you might love a dark smoky eye or allover eyeshadow, your weeding day calls for something a bit more classic and a touch more ethereal. This is your fairytale dream come true, after all. The first step to determining which makeup will be the most flattering for your wedding day is to determine which hues look best with your eye color. From there you’ll be able to tailor your eyeshadow, eyeliner, and mascara to accentuate your eyes. Below, we share the very best accentuating wedding makeup for green eyes. Just remember, it’s about picking the shades and tones that will play up your eye color to celebrate what’s uniquely you on your big day.

The Best Wedding Makeup Idea 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 crease brush

Flat eyeshadow brush

L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Quad in Good Luck Charm 

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

L’Oréal Paris Voluminous X Fiber Waterproof Mascara

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Prime your lids. First things first: Apply an eye makeup primer to your lids, as this can help create an even canvas for the rest of your eye makeup application.  

Step 2: Start with your second lightest color. Use a fluffy eyeshadow brush to blend the dusty rose color of your quad into your crease. Start off very sheer and once there’s no more color on your brush, use your brush to blend that eyeshadow in your crease up towards your brow bone. It’s always best to start with a light color on your lids because it gives the lighter and darker colors something to blend into so that you can avoid muddiness.

Step 3: Layer your next darkest color into your crease. Make sure to get your shadow all the way down to the outer edge of your eye socket before swooping it up into your crease. Don’t take it all the way into your inner corner. Instead, stop about two-thirds of the way to avoid a hooded effect and encourage a soft smoky eye. Once there’s no more eyeshadow on the brush, move in small circular motions to blend it up into your crease and just beyond.

Step 4: Continue to create depth with your next darkest color. Make sure to leave your inner corner blank to help create a wide-awake appearance.

Step 5: Highlight the center of your lids. Use your fluffy eyeshadow brush to dust some of the lightest color in your quad across the center of your lids. This will help make your eyes pop.

Step 6: Highlight your inner eyes. To really open up your overall statement eye look, dust some of that same light color into the inner corners of your eyes.

Step 7: Buff your lids out with a fluffy eye brush. Tap any excess color off of 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 colors. The ultimate goal is to create a full fade of colors that mimics the look of natural dimension and definition.

Step 8: Apply black eyeliner. Smudge a black pencil eyeliner into your upper lash line. Don’t worry about creating a super-straight line across your lash line. Instead, take a tight-lined approach to create definition while minimizing the look of wearing eyeliner.

Step 9: Blend dark brown eyeshadow overtop your eyeliner. Use a flat eyeshadow brush to buff the dark brown eyeshadow into the black eyeliner to create more natural-looking definition for your eyes. Flick up a bit at the end so that the color along your lash line can blend with the shadow a bit. Once you’ve finished lining, use a tapered eyeshadow brush to buff it all about more for a seamlessly blended neutral eye look.

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.

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 first and then follow it up with your face makeup. This way if there’s any fallout from your eyeshadow, you won’t have to smudge your concealer, foundation, face powder, or highlighter trying to dust it away.

Now that you’ve decided on your makeup, it’s time to nail down your hair. To help you along the way, we’ve rounded up 3 Wedding Updos That Are Totally on Trend for 2018.
