Did you know that only 2% of people have green eyes? Are you one of them? If so, you’ve most likely already asked yourself which eyeshadow colors are the best to highlight your shade. Well, you’ve come to the right place! Cecile from the blog Les Confidences de Lizzie shares with us some of her tips on how to make your green eyes dazzle. Fierce look, guaranteed!
I. The Perfect Colors for Your Green Eyes
Highlighting your green eyes is not as hard as it may seem! The best colors to feature your gorgeous irises are complementary colors to green, which can easily be figured out by referring to a very practical tool: the color wheel.
By looking at the palette of shades best adapted for emerald irises, we can see that green's complementary colors—those that will really bring out your eyes and make them glow—are red and purple hues. Actually, if you look closely, you can see traces of yellow in the color green. Purple, on the other hand, does not have any, but we do see some red, which is completely green free!
- Purple & Its Many Shades
Purple and its accompanying shades are a safe bet when adding makeup to your eyes. Not only does it brighten your look, but it adds a little glow to your complexion. And good news: the range of purple is quite vast! You can opt for red, plum, mauve, violet, and rose, as well as lily, candied chestnut, coral, amethyst, and even eggplant. If you want to take it up a notch, feel free to add just a bit of black for a stunning smoky eye.

- Warm Shades: Go for Browns!
What is fiercer than eye makeup in warm tones? Browns, golds, and coppers will make your eyes even more intense and give you a sultry look. Both a matte and iridescent finish are sure to be gorgeous. So, go wild! And if you don’t know which to choose...pick them both! Hypnotic look guaranteed!
To discover all the shades that will ferociously highlight your green eyes, it's just here.
- Light Makeup to Emphasize Your Eyes
Your eye color is already so beautiful that only a smidgen of light eyeshadow will bring them to life! A bright complexion, a dab of blush on the cheeks, a subtle eyeshadow or touch of eyeliner, and just a bit of mascara...and voilà! You are a goddess!
II. Colors to Avoid
Some colors are more likely than others to cast a shadow over your look and draw away from its natural beauty. This is often the case with blues and greens, metallic shades, and cooler hues. But every rule has an exception. Certain cooler tones, like lily, eggplant, and plum, are perfect for green eyes!
If you really love green, add a shadow with a gradient effect to avoid tone-on-tone. In this case, use a color that’s darker than your iris and really pigmented, like an intense olive green.
Got a penchant for blue? Then here’s my tip: draw a line of blue with an eyeshadow pencil, rather than applying it to the entirety of your eyelid. The finish will be perfect, scout’s honor!

IV. How to Makeup Your Green Eyes
With ALL TIGERS eyeshadows, it's easy to have gorgeous green eyes. Follow our tutorial to see how!
STEP 1: Apply a plum eyeshadow to the root of your lashes, and then blend it in with a brush or your finger so it spreads to the rest of your lid. If you’re looking for intense eye makeup, just add a bit more shadow to your eyelid. You can even add a touch of plum shadow near the edge of your lower lashes, using a very thin brush specific for this use.
STEP 2: Choose a dark brown shadow. All you have to do is add just a bit to the outer corner of your eye with your finger or a brush. Now, you have a gradient of colors running from light to dark.
STEP 3: Now add some pop to your look by adding a lighter shade, like pink, to the inner corner of your eye.
STEP 4: Want to shake things up a bit? Opt for a purple, plum, or black mascara for greater volume and longer lashes.
STEP 5: And last but not least: groomed eyebrows! Start by brushing your eyebrows and then shading them in with a pencil or brow mascara.
Don’t have the time? You’re in a rush? You can have a light but fierce eye makeup look by adding just a little line of plum-colored shadow to your lid and finishing it off with a mascara of the same shade. This duo will brighten your look and make your eyes pop in five seconds flat!
And now you know everything you need to showcase your pretty, green eyes. So, let your imagination run wild and have fun!
