For all my green eyed beauties, here are my top 3 tips to having captivating green eyes!
1. Play with purples – Bring out your gorgeous green eyes with makeup that is red-based. To widen the look of close-set eyes, apply shades of deep plum eye shadow toward the outer edges and a lighter shader of purple toward the inner eye. If your eyelids are a little droopy, do the opposite. Avoid purples with blue undertones, as well as blue eye shadow and eyeliner. Dark green, lavender, purple, plum or lilac tones work best for green eyed ladies. Gold and copper are great for highlighting green eyes. A general rule of thumb for green eyes is to choose warm shades vs. cooler shades.
2. Avoid silver – 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 the evening. Brown or dark green eyeshadow with flecks of gold are also terrific choices.
3. Skip the black eyeliner – Everyone loves black eyeliner but it isn’t the best choice for green-eyed beauties. Use chocolate brown liner for everyday. To spice things up, try grey or gold. To open up your eyes and make them pop, add a little white eyeliner to the inner corner near the tear duct.
Follow these tips and you will be the envy of all friends. I hope this helps and inspires you to try different shades and techniques.
Stay sweet xoxo
