Tips for Wearing Green Eye Makeup

In honor of St Patrick's Day, we wanted to give you tips and tricks for wearing green eye makeup.  Most of us probably shy away from this look because when you think green, you might picture something like the Wicked Witch.  With our tips, you'll look flawless, not frightening.

Green Eye Makeup Inspiration

  1. A little goes a long way.  Moderation will keep your look clean and attractive, and you can always add more if you want to make a bolder statement.
  2. Keep the rest of your look simple.  For example, use a light lip shade with a bold green look.  If you're wearing a lighter green shade, then you can try a darker lip shade.
  3. Try a shade that compliments your skin tone.  If you're fair-skinned, opt for lighter shades of green.  Darker, more vivid shades will complement darker skin tones.  Some really dark shades of green will almost appear black, so you can substitute it for your smokey eye shades or everyday black liner.
  4. Apply your eye makeup first - for two reasons.  One - if it flakes off onto your face, you can easily clean up before applying your foundation.  Two - a full face of makeup can look overdone with this bold eye look.  Once you've applied your eye makeup, you'll be able to see if you really need a full application of foundation, or just some concealer to freshen up your complexion.
  5. Don't be afraid to experiment with your look!  An all over wash of green eyeshadow is beautiful, but you can also add intrigue to your look with a pop of eyeliner either on the top or bottom or just at the corners of eyes.  We love to apply a dark green liner and then smudge it for a sultry look.  Mix and match shades to find the color that looks best on you.

Thank you for sharing these looks. These are going to help me a lot like my sister’s wedding is coming up and I am wearing a rustic colored dress with green detailing on it. I am super excited about this for the past few months! I have taken the help from buy dissertation online UK based already to get done with my dissertations so I can enjoy those days without any academic pressure. Anyways, I am so looking forward to trying these eye make-up looks.
