Okay! So you definitely want to keep it light, and easy! With green eyes, you want to try some purples (that are red based, not blue), and some metalllics like bronze, copper and gold.


I personally don't like the idea in investing a lot of money in a whole bunch of pallets, so i'll tell you how i do my eyes, and this will make it easy for school too! For the easiest eye ever, take a white (something light and shimmery that blends right into your skin, and DOES NOT just sit on top all cakey) and put most of it on the outside half under your brow. Sweep that to the other half, then get some more on your brush. Tap it into the very inner corner of your eye and then sweep some under your lashes. Then take whatever color you use and apply it all over the lid and crease. 


If you want to do something more detailed or smokey looking, you can still do it with just one color. To do that you do the same thing as above, except put the color very lightly on your lid. Then take a higher concentration of that color and start on the outside corner of your crease and mix it in. You can put it on the outside corner of your lid too. If you want, you can take the white and dust it on the inside corner of your lid aswell. I like to go big with my eye shadow (I rarely go for the natural look) so i take a tiny brush and smudge some of my color just barely under my lashes. 


I encourage you to play with your friends makeup palletes instead of buying a big one. That way you know what colors you like and what works for you. 


As far as liner and mascara go, definitely stay with a chocolate/ dark brown, putting more or less depending on how natural a look you are going for. 


Find a pretty pink blush as well as a light petal pink cutesy lip color. 


I hope this helps!

What color are your eyes?

Keep everything pretty natural. You don't want your makeup looking heavy. If you have a couple trouble spots on your skin, I would just invest in a good concealer, and that should solve any complexion problems. For eye-makeup, I would just put a medium taupe color all over the lid, followed by a swipe of mascara. As for color, maybe a peachy-pink blush (I feel that complements almost everyone's skintone) and just a pink lipgloss. With this look, you can't go wrong. It's pretty, polished, and natural looking.

I Personally like to keep it simple. I'm going to be a freshman in high school. On a day to day basis i wear concealer a tiny bit of eyeliner on the outer part of my eye and mascara. Its a very easy look that takes 5 minutes to do. If you want more of a full coverage on your face definitely do a bb cream, nothing to cakey though. Ig you really want to look nice and go the extra mile go for some natural eyeshadow. Nothing too crazy 

My favorites to use are:

  • Dior Skin Nude Concealer
  • Dior Skin Nude BB Cream
  • Beauty Blender 
  • Stila stay all day waterproof liquid liner in black
  • Benefits "They"re Real!" Mascara 
  • Urban Decays Naked palette 
  • Urban Decays Primer Potion

Hope this helps!

School takes a lot of energy, so you don't want to wear makeup that itching your eyes will ruin. So, I'd reccommend a light pink eyeshadow, soft black eyeliner on the top of your eye (not the bottom), and a waterproof mascara. I wouldnt reccomend foundation, because when I wore foundation to school it got on all my papers and books if I leaned my face on them! And chapstick is a must!
