The Best Eyeshadows for Green Eyes

October 26, 2019


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

Shiseido Kajal Ink Artist Shadow In Plum Blossom



"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


Rituel De Fille Ash and Ember Eye Soot In Serpent de Mer



The more you blend this creamy shimmer formula, the more it transforms. Load up your lid with pigment, then diffuse it into the crease for extra drama.



3 For Golden-Green Eyes - Yellow Gold


Haus Laboratories Glam Attack Liquid Shimmer Powder in Legend




Shiny gold shades like this one bring out the yellow tones in golden-green gazes, says Oquendo. Consider this cream-to-powder formula, which is essentially Studio 54 in a tube.



4 For Golden-Green Eyes - Oscar Gold


Marc Jacobs Beauty O!mega Gel Powder Eyeshadow in Brav-O!



 A deeper gold allows for a smokier look. Mix your metals and pair it with platinum hoops.


5 For Gray-Green Eyes - Mauve


MAC Cosmetics Eye Shadow in Haux



If your eyes have a silver tilt to them, Oquendo suggests lightening things up. "If there's a little gray in them, try using a mauve or rosey-toned purple  shade to compliment both the grey and green." 


6 For Grey-Green Eyes - Amethyst


Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleon Eye Shadow Pencil in Amethyst Aphrodisiac



Line your eyes with a jewel-tones chubby stick for instant pop without the mess.


7 For Blue-Green Eyes - Bronze

Bronze and copper tones make the blue bits pop in algae-colored eyes, says Oquendo. 


8 For Blue-Green Eyes - Copper


Second Eyeshadow in Copper Halo



Swipe the liquid-to-powder formula over lids once for a warm wash, or slick on layers while wet for that brand new penny shine.



9 For All Green Eyes Warm Nightshades


Smoky Eye Brick in Tweed



Eggplant, tomato, and mushroom: If Tom Brady wouldn't eat it, it'll look good on green eyes.


10 The Necessary Eyeshadow Palette



We're calling this vibe "Concrete Jungle." Blend them all together for a chic, metropolitan smoky eye.
