When it comes to the top makeup trends, nude and neutral eye shadow colours have dominated the fashion scene. We tend to play it safe with our eye shadows, sticking to neutral shades which compliment our skin tones and whilst they look beautiful, they are tame. We think that you should experiment. Green eye shadow is starting to grow in popularity, and we think it is a stunning addition to any makeup look. Here are 10 amazing makeup looks featuring green eye shadow. Hopefully we’ll inspire you to be brave!
Green Smokey Eye
Especially if you have green eyes, green eye shadow can give you a beautiful end result. Start by taking a shimmery light green and paint across the lid. Blend outwards to the outer corner with a darker green. Using a chocolate brown shade, blend throughout the crease and outwards. Add a thick flick of black eyeliner and plenty of mascara to finish.
Pop of Green
Add a pop of green to your smokey eye look to truly transform your makeup style. Start by taking a light brown from the inner corner towards the middle. Then, taking a dark brown, blend outwards towards the outer corner. Drag the dark brown shade under your lower lash line. Taking a gorgeous green, add from the inner corner right across the eyelid to finish.
Glittery Emerald Green Look
Emerald green is such a beautiful and vibrant shade – why wouldn’t you want to work it into your eye look? Start with a pale green from the inner corner of the eye. Blend it outwards towards the centre. Take an emerald green shade and blend outwards from the centre of the eye to the outer corner. Add an eyeliner flick to the top lash line and finish with lots of mascara.
Dark Green Smokey Eye
Jewel tones are stunning and vibrant – especially on brown or green eyes! Green is such a flattering colour and we just adore this style. Choose a bright green and pat into the centre of the eyelid. Take a dark green and add to the inner and outer corners of the eye. Drag this eye shadow under the bottom lash line too. Finish with lots of mascara for a fantastic end result.
Green in the Water Line
Of course, you don’t have to go all out with the green. Sometimes, less is more. For this look, create your typical golden-hued smokey eye. Start with lots of gold in the inner corner. Blend outwards towards a soft shade of brown. Using a green, drag under the water line. Add a subtle line of eyeliner along the top line and finish with mascara.
Green and Brown with This Eyeliner
Brown and green look so perfect together – we just adore this style! Start by adding a white shade into the inner corner. Take a green shade and work right across the eyelid. Lightly blend a brown throughout the crease and drag this colour under the bottom lash line. Add a splash of green in the water line. Finish with thick eyeliner all around the eye.
Silver and Green
Silver and green work perfectly well together – don’t you agree? We think this sparkly look is very special indeed. Take a bright silver and add to the inner corner of the eye. Then, use a light green to fill in the rest of the eyelid and also drag this colour under the lower lash line. Blend a soft brown throughout the crease and finish with your favourite mascara!
Gold and Green
Sometimes a stark contrast can be even more effective than a colour blend – don’t you think? Recreate this look by sweeping a bronze or gold shade right across the upper eyelid. Blend outwards right throughout the crease. Take a bright green and drag it right along the lower lash line. Use black liquid eyeliner to paint a thick line on the upper eyelid to end.
Bright Green with Tons of Mascara
Eyeliner isn’t essential for a vibrant eye look – as this gorgeous style proves! Take an electric green and pack the colour on right across the eyelid. Take a dark brown and add to the outer corners of the eye. Blend throughout the crease too. Drag the brown colour underneath the bottom lash line. Finish with as much mascara as you like for a fantastic fluttery finish.
Brown and Green Glittery Blend
This look uses a fantastic and interesting eye shadow technique which we simply cannot get enough of. Start with a matte dark brown shade and add to the inner and outer corners of the eyelid. Blend outwards with a fluffy brush but keep the pigment strong. Then, with a gorgeous and glittery green, pat the colour in the centre of the eyelid for this wonderful end result.
