Only about 2 percent of people in the world have naturally green eyes. Green eyes are a genetic mutation that results in low levels of melanin, though more melanin than in blue eyes. Green eyes don’t actually have any color. Green is created from a mix of all primary colors, which means you have an endless palette to work with when it comes to choosing eyeshadows, lipsticks, and complexion products.
Getting creative with your makeup can really help Green eyes to shine in so many different ways, so we recommend experimenting with looks to match every situation and aesthetic. Ahead, find our favorite makeup ideas for Green eyes.
Bold Lower Liner
If color makes you nervous, try using it on your lower lash line for a subtle pop.
Neutrals All the Way
Try using shades close to your skin tone and using the same product across your lids, cheeks, and lips.
Combined with fluttery lashes, a mint shade feels both nostalgic and modern
Play up the gold or hazel hues in your brown eyes with golden highlight and shimmering eyeshadow.
For an understated color with major impact, try a soft purple or mauve.
Bring the drama by applying black liner all around your eye.
Mix silver-pink with a shimmery pink gradient that really shines against Green eyes.
Smoke it Out
