Women with green eyes often find it difficult to experiment with eye makeup, fearing that it would ruin the dramatic appearance of their eye color. Green eyes can be enhanced even further by using the right shades of eyeliners, eyeshadow, mascara and kohl pencils. All you need to know is which colors to use for the makeup and how to use them in a perfect combination.

Colors and Shades of Eye Makeup
Since our objective is to dramatize and enhance the hazel green eyes and not to tone them down, you must work with makeup colors that do not compete with your eye color. If your eyes are of a darker green shade, then choose lighter colors, and if they are light green, then choose darker shades. The colors of the eyeshadow and eye pencil should be used in combination, rather than using the same color for both.
Shades of taupe, coral, mocha and lilacs as eyeshadow will work very well to create that dramatic effect for green colored eyes. Also remember that the color should complement the occasion that you would be wearing it to. Choose colors like peach, purple, bronze, brown, khaki, violet, beige, mauve.

The Smoky Effect
Smokey Makeup
To create a smoky eyes look for green eyes, start with using an eyeshadow base or an eye concealer. Apply the darker shade over the crease evenly in an outward and upward motion, so that it tapers towards the outer edge of the eye. Make the outer edge of the eye darker than the inner edges. Apply the eyeliner on the entire upper eyelid and half way on the lower eyelid. Sculpt your eyebrows by filling them with dark brown eyebrow powder.
You can also try different combinations of shades that go well with green eyes, but make sure you carry it off with confidence. Do not overdo it by using loud colors as eventually it might look messy. Feel lucky to have this unique eye color.
