Welcome to my third installment of Eye Palettes to Enhance Your Eye Color. This post features green shaded shadows created especially to make green eyes pop! Green has both a warming and cooling effect on the eyes. The color symbolizes: balance, harmony, and stability. You can use bright, chartreuse colors for a springtime feel or darker more olive colors for a fall/winter look.
Each of these palettes include three to four shades of just the right greens and golds to perfectly enhance your eyes. The lightest neutral shade is the highlighter and goes just beneath your brow-bone; the medium color should be swept all over your lid and the darkest is applied to the crease. Stay tuned for one more palette tomorrow to suit blue eyes!
Du Wop Eye Shadow Palette in Green Eyes, $32, is a collection of six smooth, light and brilliant green-hued eye shadows. The palette contains three shades of the color shadow base, a gold shadow to give your eyes a metallic shimmer and a deep forest green cream liner.
The colors are: soft golden green, soft lime, rich forest green, chartreuse, deep green cream liner and gold. The colors are easily blend-able and they won't crease!
For more groovy green eye shadow palettes,
Laura Mercier Evolution of Colour for Eyes in Rainforest, $36, is a gorgeous eyeshadow quad. The colors can easily take you from day to night by adding the deepest green to your crease and the lightest shade to your brow for a more dramatic effect.
You can wear each one alone or blend them together to create your own look. Laura Mercier shadows are phenomenal, I've been wearing them for over a decade. They are crease resistant, long lasting and the colors are highly pigmented so just a little goes a long way. This awesome palette is now offered in four other beautiful color spectrums too!
Burjois Eye Shadow Trio in Les Verts, $18, is made from ultra-fine powder that feels and looks like satin on your eyes.
This palette creates a more soft, subtle effect than the others. The colors included are: a pale green for highlighting, a shimmery sage green for all over color and a forest green for the crease or for lining. Enjoy.
