Best Eye Makeup For Green Eyes
Seven-year beauty industry vet Katie Adame has brushed shadow on eyes for the runway, awards shows, and red carpet events. Here are her hottest product tips for making green eyes pop.
The One Thing Every Green-Eyed Beauty Should Have
A makeup bag must-have for anyone with green eyes is Stila's Smudge Pot in Kitten. The light colored shimmer cream dries into a powder. "It works great as a primer and blends well with greens, purples, and browns," Adame says. It's also stunning alone or as a highlighter along the brow bone.
Best Eyeliner For Green Eyes
Urban Decay 24/7 glide-on eye pencil in either Rockstar (deep purple) or Demolition (brown) is perfect for green eyes. "It's a waterproof pencil liner that works great for defined or smudged smokey looks," says Adame. If you prefer liquid liner, try one of Almay's browns.
Best Shadow For Green Eyes
For green eyes, Adame loves Urban Decay eyeshadow in Moss. She also uses MAC in Bronze, Brule, Club, or Humid, or pigment powder in Jugs n' Jives and Naked. Stila matte browns are also a good choice. "For purples, just stick to the deeper warm purples, since they're complementary to green," Adame says.
Best Mascara For Green Eyes
Adame calls Maybelline Falsies "the absolute best mascara I've ever used." This is the wand she pulls out for all her clients. The waterproof version actually is waterproof, and holds curl while lengthening lashes. But if you don't like using oil-based products to remove your makeup, the regular version of the mascara also works well.
