What shades of eye shadow should I use on green eyes?

Make Your Green Eyes Sparkle Like Emeralds

When making hue selections with eye makeup, choose a color that will make those brilliant green eyes sparkle like dazzling emeralds. To highlight green eyes, utilize shades of browns and lavender. Purple shades in direct contrast with green eyes will create a dramatic contrasting effect; this is a striking look that is perfect for evening wear. On the other hand, warmer shades of browns blend harmoniously with green eyes and will create a subtle, natural effect; this is a great daytime look. Use a natural lipliner and lots of gloss to pout those lips! Finish the look off with a great brown mascara.

golds are great with great eyes, as well as some red shades, you can never go wrong with tans, browns and purples..its not just the eye color, you have to take your skin tone into consideration as well.

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.
