Makeup Tips for Green Eyes

Pick the Colors Correctly

This is the first and primarily important thing. Picking the colors correctly is the starting step to perfection, so your choice has to be done wisely. Since our primary aim is to accentuate the eyes and to gift them with an alluring and nicely completing touches, our choices should stop on shades complementing the shades of the eyes. Thus, if the eyes have a darker tone, the complementing tone should be lighter, still sticking to the basic color palette correspondence, and vice versa.

You may also experiment with the combos of these shades, for instance, matching the tones of dark-brown with coral.

The complexion of your skin and the shade of your hair also matter in the choice of the eyeshadow colors. Thus, if you have lighter skin and hair, greenish and bluish shades for makeup will be great. Options like bronze and light peachy will also do. For those having brownish hair, the neutral brown, purple, golden and honey shades will go best. Brunettes’ choice should stop on any shades of purple, green, or gray. These shades are also ideal for the cat-eye effect. As for the jet-black hair, brown, rosy, and bluish-green tones are recommended.

Talking about capricious shades like pink, we should also add that though it’s not impossible to imagine the combos of green with pink, but still you’ll need to find the exact shade matching your eyes.

Also, you’d better avoid green tones, since they will either become totally visually indistinguishable from the eyes, or just make them look grayish. Thus, as you may see, the basic keys for the most successful application of the eye makeup are the colors, namely the shadows.

Also, talking about the combinations again, we may note that the monochrome looks are just as effective as their combos. The latter may include all the possible and incredible options, from classic interpretations to crazy multi-colored looks.

Talking about the exclusion of black shades for eyeliner, we may again advise you to use some chocolate shades, or plum and golden tones in case you want a bolder image.

Finally, talking about some nuances about the functional use of makeup, we may also add that as in any other case, every type of makeup has some special intention and purpose. The occasion you are dressed up to is also vital. Thus, if you create the makeup with light and soft shades, you’ll more likely get some casual looks, whereas picking darker and more intense shades will help you create ideal evening looks. Opting for some metallic or dark purple shades is also a do for the evening looks.
