So i like plums greys etc to make green eyes come out

BUT has anyone ever found a green? I am thinking a grey green maybe but warm or even a khaki?

What is the best shade for green eyes for you?

JackandDiane Sun 06-Mar-16 15:37:02

this suggests this silver,,

JackandDiane Sun 06-Mar-16 15:37:37

has anyone used this Nars one? Kind of Khaki

In the past I've found bronze coloured eyeshadow brings out the green in my eyes.

RomComPhooey Sun 06-Mar-16 15:46:32

Like this one.

oh thanks - i have some bronzes atm but always swerve them to go back to the boring old plums!

If you want pale, opalescent: MAC Vex

Mildew buy Urban Decay? It's also available in their 24/7 eyeliner pencil.

Another vote for Mildew - it's lovely.

I wear loads of different ones!
Coppers and bronzes and golds
Oranges and reds to really make them stand out
Mac sumptuous olive is a green
Lots of taupe, grey tones, silvers

I think it depends on your skin tone as well as your eye colour. My green-eyed, warm skinned friend looks stunning in copper. I'm cool toned and suit silver and some plum colours. I find that dark grey eyeliner rather than black emphasises the green too.

My eyes are deep green rather than blue green, but look muddy brown with the wrong colours. Greens and blues make them look brown by contrast.

hollinhurst84 Sun 06-Mar-16 16:51:04

Cool toned here
This is grey (pink under the eye) and reds

Feawen Sun 06-Mar-16 16:56:37

Hollinhurst, you have lovely skin smile

CeeceeBloomingdale Sun 06-Mar-16 16:59:01

Im cool toned but have a pale olive skintoene. I wear dark brown liner as grey or black look odd on me. Eyeshadows are always pale, silver, white, pink or peach.

Feawen - thank you. I used to have horrendous acne and it still flares up every so often but skin care has settled it a lot

DidgeDoolittle Sun 06-Mar-16 17:15:15

I have green eyes and am warm toned.
I wear Mac Woodwinked, Origins Khaki and Clinique Mighty Moss chubby stick.

Oh one of my favourite eyeliner/eyeshadow colours ever is Urban Decay's Rockstar it's a lovely dark purple aubergine colour. I'm super pale with green eyes and it's the colour I wear the most.

I don't work for UD btw grin but I only ever wear their eyeshadow/liners. Funnily enough I've never tried their foundations or anything but mostly because I expect their lightest shade to be too dark for me.

I just bought Mac expensive pink after the Mac lady reccomended today. Really makes my green eyes pop ( it's kind of a bronze pink).

I've usually played it safe and gone for light browns. MAC Malt is good. I'm not young enough for shimmer or bronze would probably work too. Tried pink once and looked like a vivisection rabbit. An experimentally inclined MAC make up artist tried a yellowy green on me once, hadn't looked so bad since i had hepatitis as a 12 year old.

yeah - the pic is not quite my style, sadly

but thanks

JackandDiane Mon 07-Mar-16 08:09:34

bronze PINK sounds alluring

JackandDiane Mon 07-Mar-16 08:10:50

mildew and vex ( what ever happened to poncho pink) sound PERFECT

Another vote for MAC Vex, and I also have an olive green that is quite subtle from MAC (and looks great with a gold underneath), but it was a refill and can't remember its name, sorry, not very useful.
