Gorgeous Green Eyeshadow Ideas
Green eyeshadow can be outrageously dramatic or effortlessly subtle, depending on your individual style. Perfect for summer, it is vibrant, classy and playful.
With the right shades and contrasting, anyone can wear this timeless hue - regardless of eye colour. It's all about finding the right match for you.
Age-old makeup 'rules' that stipulated green pigments are best-suited to those with dark brown eyes have been consigned to the history books. Even people with green eyes now wear green eyeshadow!
Thanks to the rise and rise of creators, eye makeup has taken on a new, even bolder role in fashion. Stuffy, old rule books have been, quite literally, torn up.
Complex looks now compete with simple and outdated 'lid-only' styles. This is at a time when an increasing number of makeup users are adept when it comes to creating everything from cut creases to wings. Throw in glitter, sequins and a ton of other 'add-ons' and the number of looks you can generate is literally limitless.
Kaleidoscope Of Shade Choices
The range of shades and pigmentation levels in green eyeshadow is diverse.
With more than 120 universally recognised variations, not to mention exclusive brand colours, green is bang on the money for experimentation and is guaranteed to brighten up the face. It literally feeds the imagination.
Types of green include deep emeralds and jades to paler aquas and those inspired by moss and sage.
If you are experimenting with this colour, consider buying an eyeshadow palette dedicated to greens. Revolution Beauty has some good options, including Makeup Revolution Colour Book CB05 and Makeup Obsession So Dope with Cannabis Sativa.
As well as shade variations, you can choose shimmer or matte pigments, each bringing something different to a look. Add to that psychedelic neons, glitters and liners and you will begin to understand the sheer breadth of choice available.
If you want to use green with another colour, greys or blues are a good creative choice, along with reds. Stick with grey if you are not sure.
