Eye Makeup for Green Eyes #2

Posted by Colleen Shirazi, Friday, April 22, 2005 3:33 PM (Eastern)

Here I would like to recommend a some specific shades for green-eyed women with overall warm-to-neutral coloring, like myself. I'll start with department store eyeshadows, then cover liners and lower-priced options in subsequent posts.

Overall coloring is important! I can't wear some of the cooler colors that flatter green eyes, such as lavenders, cool blues and greys. Likewise, those with cooler coloring can't wear the oranges and bronzes that make my green eyes pop.

Here is the queen of duo shadows for warmer-coloring green eyes, the Nars Babylon Duo:

It's kind of a weird-looking duo as one side is a medium, frosty, cross between orange sherbet and orange creamsicle, and the other is a dark, matte, greyish purple shade.

Together though you get really good results. For some reason, the two shades balance each other perfectly to pop green eyes.

Here is the queen of the single shadows, Urban Decay Kiss:

Unlike many pink shadows, this one goes on a tad warm and a bit brown, so you don't get that lovely "I've been crying for hours" look. Slight shimmer. It's more of a lid shade; it's possible also to do a crease with it.

Breathing down its neck, we have MAC Trax:

For a very long time, I thought Trax was pure deep purple with gold shimmer...not so. It has a very heavy underlayer of rose to it, and it's practically half it is a unique blend of purple, rose and gold that does your green eyes good. And it's not all that deep either; it's a medium shade that works fine in your crease or on your lids.

Finally, we have a black|Up quad:

I don't have a price for this but it certainly behaves like an expensive shadow quad. You get four beautiful, finely milled, pigmented, long-lasting shades that work well together. Plus a double-sided brush that is actually functional.

This is a very warm, yellow-gold to orange based quad, so it's out if your coloring is cool. But if you can wear orange eyeshadow, you will like this one.
