Part 2 – Choosing Colors
This is second part of green eyes makeup tips which explains the method of selecting eyeshadow colors. If you’ve read part one then you have determined your level of green eyes and so you know which depth of color you can wear. Part One revealed your universal color. Now it’s time for other colors.
Branch Out From Universal Color
Your universal color – mauve – works for both daytime and evening looks. It’ss a great color to work with because it can be combined not only with pinks, but also with just about every other makeup color. Green eyes makeup tips include the use of browns and bronze colors. These are colors that play off of the subtle flecks of color already in your eyes.
If you have a seagreen eye color then you can also use blues that tend toward green. You can also wear green eyeshadow. Just remember when choosing colors not to overpower the color of your eyes. Keep the darker colors in the outer crease area or use them as eyeliner.
Eyeshadow Highlight Color
Because a mauve (red) is your complementary color is means that light pink highlight colors are perfect for you. Light pink highlights look great with just about any shade of mauve, violet or purple. That doesn’t mean that you have to limit yourself to pink though.
Since green eyes usually have lighter flecks of yellow in them, you can also choose very pale ivory highlights. Light golds blend beautifully with cooper colors. If you go golden, the make sure you use a darker brown eyeliner color to contrast.
Are you going with a combination palette? When choosing green eyes makeup then go with a mauve palette for your first one. Branch out from there. Experiment with copper colors.
When you want to experiment with other colors, then buy cheap makeup and try out an intensely pigmented shadow. Apply it very lightly to see if the general color – like blue – is going to work with your eye color. If it does then take it with you when you want to shop for makeup in another line.
The key to wearing eyeshadow colors for green eyes is to start with your universal color and then add additional deeper color with eyeliner.
