Make up for blue green eyes that defy typical color rules

I have blue green eyes that appear blue to a lot of folks until I begin searching for eye makeup.  Browns make me look tired and purples tend to be unflattering.  I have brunette hair.  Help!

Hi kimberly715, 

 

Have you tried using a colored eyeliner and skipping the colored shadow altogether? When in doubt, I always recommend a neutral base shade all over the lid (a soft taupe or gold or pink always works) and line your eyes with a black, dark brown or grey liner and throw a bit of a colored liner in with it too. I like to use the brighter color on the lower lash line, or mix a bit onto the outer corner of the top lash line. I think a bright shade with a bit more of a shimmer or sheen would really bring out the shade in your eyes, like a pretty emerald green or turquoise, brighter purple, or a copper shade that is not too dark brown but has a more golden pop of color to contrast nicely with your eyes!

You can still wear blues and greens, just make sure they are a good contrast from your eye color to give you a definite pop of color and make the eyes appear more striking.
