Everyone is naturally beautiful, but not everyone knows what makeup suits them and makes them look more attractive. Makeup is wondrous and there are different types, so it can be overwhelming to find the right one for your skin. Below I’ve prepared a simple, reliable guide on how to choose the best makeup for green eyes.
The best makeup for green eyes is the one that makes you feel like your most beautiful self.
But if you want to rock a look that’s flattering and eye-catching, there are a few tricks and tips to keep in mind.
First, if you want to go for something simple, try a pale pink blush and a soft pink lipstick. This will make your eyes pop without being aggressive or overpowering.
If you want something more dramatic, try going for an orange-based red lipstick (this will make your eyes seem brighter) with a dark black eyeliner. This is perfect for making sure everyone notices those gorgeous green peepers!
Best makeup for green eyes
With only 2% of the population having green eyes, they are considered the rarest eye color in the world. This makes green one of the most popular colored contact lens shades, especially for dark brown eyes. Colored contacts are the perfect way to alter your original eye color and with Solotica lenses this can become a reality. We have outlined Our Guide to The Best 2022 Makeup Style for Green Eyes and green-colored contact lenses to ensure your eyes sparkle brightly, whatever the occasion.
5 Makeup Styles To Highlight Your Green Eyes
Let’s tackle these eye makeup styles one by one!
Style 1: Golden Shadow
Green and gold are a match made in heaven, right? For inspiration, always go for gold eyeshadow to accompany any green tone. Green eyes most commonly contain brown, blue, and yellow flecks, and yellow and green are beside each other on the color wheel. Using a glitzy gold upon the lid allows the harmonious shade to accentuate the green iris while allowing the eyes to gleam. We suggest pairing this gorgeous display with Hidrocor Jade, a beautifully rich green lens inspired by the precious stone (our best-selling colored contacts).
Style 2: Purple Smoky Eye
If you are looking for an evening look to partner green eyes, then a purple smoky eye is the one! Summer parties are looming, and we suggest throwing out the grey and black and replacing them with purple eyeshadow. Green and purple go together in perfect harmony! For makeup beginners, we would personally use Rimmel London’s Magnif’eyes Eyeshadow Palette in Eclectic Violet: brush a deep purple eyeshadow across the bottom half of your eyelid first and then blend in a lighter shade over the crease. Try Aquarella Samba Green, a beautiful soft green with hints of blue and yellow in a quarterly disposable lens. Aquarella quarterly lenses are a great choice for people who are new to colored contacts and like to try new styles and colors to transform their look in an instant.
Style 3: Bold Red Lip
A bold lip can compel any woman to feel empowered and fierce and is it rapidly acquiring the top popularity spot, sorry smoky eye. With today’s busy lifestyle, there is a lack of time to spend hours in front of a mirror, and lipstick is the perfect alternative to save time and feel sexy. Red and green are opposite on the color wheel which makes them a classic combo, ensuring both the eyes and lips pop! If a strong red is not to your liking, opt for reds with orange and brown hues-earthy tones to compliment the green. We recommend Hidrocor Mel, a honey green lens with hints of amber-perfect huh?
Style 4: Beachy Vibes
The Summer sun should soon be looming in the sky, we promise. Beach season is here, and we have a fantastic summery style to heighten the green in your eyes. Inspired by the salty sea and sun-bleached sand of our dreamy getaways, across the lid, apply a sandy beige or peach eyeshadow, and for under the eye, a teal or blue eyeliner (or eyeshadow if you prefer). Charlotte Tilbury’s Eye Color Magic Liner Duo in Super Blue is our favorite. Pair this with natural beach waves, a killer summer outfit, and you have a winner. Our Hidrocor Rio Ipanema lens is the perfect companion for this makeup look, a medium blue and green contact that illustrates the beauty of the sea.
Style 5: Warm Glow
With the sticky atmosphere of the season and people feeling more confident in their bare skin, natural beauty is all the rage. If you are scared to bare all and go out with a naked face, a subtle glow is the one for you. To accompany green eyes, go for a light foundation, a warm-toned bronzer and highlighter, a peachy or rosy blush, and neutral lip gloss. These tones will warm up your skin tone whilst ensuring that you haven’t made too much of an effort. The ‘I woke up like this’ look. To pair with the natural finish, try Hidrocor Rio Buzios: a warm forest green lens with without limbal ring to boost natural depth and admiration.
