September 11, 2009, Newsletter Issue #335: Eye Shadow for Green Eyes

Tip of the Week

When choosing eye makeup for green eyes, you should consider your skin tone as well as your eye color. Many women with green eyes have fair skin and freckles. If you have a light complexion, try to avoid eye shadow that is too deep or shimmery. However, some women with green eyes have olive skin. These women should avoid silver and blue shadows.

All women with green eyes look great in brown colors from light beiges to deep chocolate browns. Purples and pinks also complement with green eyes. Some people will suggest that you shouldn't wear green shadow if you have green eyes. However, light green can be very flattering when applied sparingly.

As with all eye colors, green-eyed women should apply an eye shadow primer over the entire lid before they begin. Choose three coordinating shades in the same color family. Apply the deepest color in the crease, the lightest color on the brow bone and the medium shade on the lid. If you aren't using green shadow, lining your bottom lashes with an emerald green pencil makes for a nice evening look. In the daytime, keep it simple. After applying your eye shadow, just a simple coat of dark brown mascara will do. Finish your look by applying a rosy cheek and lip color.
