If you've been blessed with eyes the color of cash, we're sure you've been advised to throw on some purple shadow and call it a day. And that's true: Since violet sits opposite green on the color wheel, the colors complement each other. But there are more options, if you want to take your gaze to the next level. Celebrity makeup artist Vincent Oquendo, who caters to the lids of celebs including Gigi Hadid and Winnie Harlow, tells us the secret to achieving a supermodel smize with green eyes.
For Hazel-Green Eyes -Plum

"A classic plum brings out both the brown and green in hazel eyes. I love to use this one as a liner, or an eyeshadow base," says Oquendo. Use the sponge to create a smudgy halo around the lash lines.
2 For Hazel-Green Eyes - Eggplant
