GREEN EYE SHAWDOW

I'm sure I'm the only one who hasn't fully branched out into green eye shawdows but there just aren't that many that I can wear comfortably but the more I look at these shades of green the more I like them:

swfupload_3769588812336691944.jpgI just recently started getting into brighter colors and my favorite green is a discontinued one called urban decay absinthe, its a bright emerald green that's just so gorgeous and not at all clownish. I like the more darker greens like urban decay mildew (ugg such a horrible name) because they look so good on their own or paired with neutral colors.

I have the 2 permanent collection ones (top row) but have yet to see the summer 2013 ones (bottom row) in person yet.

Re: GREEN EYE SHAWDOW

@triciaan12- Well now remember not to pass up a color because it may look good when you get it on. Maybe swatch them first.

Re: GREEN EYE SHAWDOW

@trciaan12- Oh I know the bin too well there's a small fortune in there that's why I keep it out of sight so it doesn't  remind me how much is actually in there. Hopefully it will work and no better place to wear than a summer music festival.Smiley Happy It looks summery too.

Re: GREEN EYE SHAWDOW

Try Urban Decay's 'Mildew".

Its a beautiful shade of green that is wearable. I put it over my lids and then lightly add some 'Cobra' on the outer corners.swfupload_4992269182060620385.jpgswfupload_3616607925324404311.jpg

It's Not easy Being Green! - Kermit the frog Smiley Tongue

 

I would start with muted or neutral greens and muted golds and then ease into a smoky green look don't go too vibrant with green at least until you are truly comfortable with it Smiley Happy

 

here are my suggestions

What I own and can honestly say I like:

 

my number one suggestion is Clinique Whopping Willow Eyeshadow chubby stick eye tint it's brand spanking new (I like to pair this with a muted latte such as lots o latte by clinique and new also from the same line or  you could try a muted gold color & add a line of urban decay  stash (my fave green muted goldish eyeliner to make it pop) I actually wore this today. now i have hazel eyes brown hair with gold & blonde highligts and hazel eyes, & really pale skin and it did wonders for my eyes which shift from gray to green to blue depending on what i wear to play up or contrast them with. give it a try Smiley Happy

 

Clinique whopping willow is a golden sage green

Urban Deacy stash  is a dark golden greens1051325-main-zoom.jpgs1051325+sw.jpg

 

 clinique lots o latte is a taupe brown

 you could also try a soft taupe eyeliner and brown mascara to make things softer instead of harsher and take a more natural look too Smiley Happy hope this makes helps

When I want a bit of green, I go to UD's Green Goddess...  It's a beautiful lighter green with shimmer, the green version of their classic Goddess.  I don't know what name it goes by now since the merged their older colors with newer names but I think Mildew is a good choice as mentioned.

Re: GREEN EYE SHAWDOW

Green eyeshadow in my opinion flatters every eye color and skintone, however I think that "green" would be an olive colour. swfupload_8641960317196470936.jpg

Re: GREEN EYE SHAWDOW

This looks more gold than green.

Re: GREEN EYE SHAWDOW

maybe put that color over the green or layer it with whatever color you use for your crease, I think thatd look nice Smiley Happy

Re: GREEN EYE SHAWDOW

It's a little too sparkly for me. I like shimmer but not that much.

Re: GREEN EYE SHAWDOW

I have a hard time pulling of green's. Although I'm not a huge fan of bareMinerals, I did get one of their duo eyeshadow in scenic route when they first came out. It was a complete impulse purchase due to the comercial, even though my skin tone, hair & eye color are completely different than the model's. At first I didn't know how to use "Brilliant Sage" properly, but for me it works well with a lot of the Naked2 shades. http://www.sephora.com/bareminerals-ready-eyeshadow-2-0-P297711?skuId=1363464 

Re: GREEN EYE SHAWDOW

Olives pair sooooo well with golds and neutrals! If you do a gold on your lid then a warm brown on the outer corner or third of the eye, take a small detail brush or even your finger and pat some olive right where the gold and brown meet, layering it gives it almost a subtle shift effect where you don't get a loud pop or wash of green, but a very coy, hidden glimpse of green when you have your eyes lowered or if you're being viewed from the side.

 

I love taking brighter greens with a fluffy brush and laying them right in the center of the lid at the round of the eye over colors like champagne or vanilla. The fluffy brush gives a soft touch of color!

Re: GREEN EYE SHAWDOW

Yeah I know that olives pair well with golds and neutrals but there's only a certain amount of shimmer I'm willing to wear.

Re: GREEN EYE SHAWDOW

Have you tried the Sephora Collection Picnic in the Park, I did it for my swatch for a free eyeshadow and I loved it!!!swatch.jpg

Re: GREEN EYE SHAWDOW

I don't know if anyone has mentioned it but UD Kush is such a lovely green. Smiley Very Happy One of my favorites!

Re: GREEN EYE SHAWDOW

@Manda- No I don't think any one has I'll have to check that out too. Thanks!

Re: GREEN EYE SHAWDOW

I saw it in one of the magazines: Elle I believe.  Plus, I have it at home.
