Enchanting and mysterious, green eyes are rare. Learn how to make them pop.
To show off your eye colour, rule number one is to choose shades that complement your iris. In the chromatic circle, red is opposite green—but that doesn’t mean you should apply red eyeshadow! It just means you should pick eyeshadow shades with red undertones.
If you like cool shades
Lilac is THE shade to have—it’ll make bringing out the green in your irises far easier! Otherwise, opt for mauve, plum, purple, pale pink and violet shades.
