Make Up Tricks for Green Eyes

14 Mar

A Girl with Green EyesGreen is one of the prettiest and most unusual eye colors. But what’s the best make up to bring that color out?

If you have green eyes, try these make up tricks to bring out the best in your eyes. A wonderful way to bring out those stunning green eyes is with the right application, using eye shadow.

You will find that warm colors are all excellent choices for green eyes. As for instance:

  • deep purple
  • plum
  • mauve
  • lilac
  • gold
  • bronze
  • deep green
  • copper
  • brown
  • medium pink
  • peach
  • apricots

One of the best eye make up trick is not what you should use, but rather what you should not use. You should avoid cool colors like blues, whites and pastels since they can give you a washed-out look. If you want to experiment with metallics, avoid silver shades on the eyes. However, bronze, copper and gold looks absolutely fabulous with green eyes for evening. Brown or dark green eyeshadow with flecks of gold are also terrific choices. This trick has held true for many green-eyed ladies who have mastered how to apply eye makeup.

Another thing you might want to consider when choosing the right make up for your green eyes is the color of your eyeliner. Black eyeliner isn’t the best choice for green-eyed gals. Use chocolate brown liner for everyday. To spice things up, try gray or gold. To open up your eyes and make them pop, add a little white eyeliner to the inner corner near the tear duct.

Remember, when applying make up, you should also take into consideration your blush and lipstick colors because making your face and eyes look their best is not just about eye make up techniques. For blushes, brown, rose and peach and apricot are all good color choices. Try brown, rose, mauve, plum and burgundy colors for lipsticks.

If you would like to take choosing the right makeup for green eyes one step further, here are more make up techniques and ideas. Your skin tone can also make a difference in the colors you choose.

  • Dark skin tones with green eyes look best in colors such as mauve, bronze and medium purple.
  • Medium skin tones with green eyes look best in colors like mauves, medium purples, and brownish pinks.
  • For pale skin tones with green eyes, try colors like medium pinkish brown and medium purple.

It is important to also keep in mind that not everyone has the same shade of green eyes, so the eye make up tricks won’t be for everyone; while some of the colors suggestions above might work for you, others might not. It’s always a good idea to experiment with colors since it allows you to find the right shades that will work for you.

Remember bringing attention to your green eyes will take a little practice, but with the right eye make up, the results will be simply stunning.
