{beauty board} glamourize your green eyes!

beauty board: green eyes
From left-to-right.

Perhaps, as someone with green eyes, I’m slightly bias in my adoration of the shade; but I find it utterly captivating to look at, and incredibly fun to play up. The red undertones in purple shadow palettes and purple liners make green eyes brighter, and more emerald-hued; while taupe shadows with a touch of glitter and sparkle draw out golden flecks, creating a yellow-like cat eye. For smoky eyes, skip the deep blacks and opt for smoky metallic silver shadow palettes and silver-flecked charcoal liners to make your eyes shimmer {a la Kristen Stewart}; and don’t shy away from green shadows - simply experiment with different colors and textures. Try a metallic, smoked sage shade {I favor bronze-leaning hues myself} that will complement and enhance your eyes, rather than conceal their glamorous color. Just beware your choices, you're likely to leave many green with envy.

I absolutely agree. My eyes are a rare mix between green, blue and gray, and I use to wear these colours you suggest very often.

oh i'll have to try some - my eye change from green to blue depending on my mood or what i'm looking at - they're like the hypercolor shirts from back in the day - ha

oooh totally want the NARS and the YSL - I have hazel but some days they are more green so I like to play that up sometimes :-)

Jessi said...

As a green-eyed gal myself, I concur with and use all of the above choices, depending on my mood at the moment :)
Between our mani preferences and green eyes, looks like we could share our makeup drawers ;)
