Makeup for green eyes

Wondering what eyeshadows are best for green eyes?

In our step-by-step guide, we’ll show you which eyeshadow shades will best accentuate your green eyes.

Step by Step

Prep & prime

Get the perfect base!

By using a primer, your eye makeup will stay in place all day—and best of all, it won’t migrate to your crease, either. Use a makeup brush to apply primer to your entire eyelid.

Apply eyeshadow

To make your eyes look bigger, use an eyeshadow brush to apply eyeshadow to the outer third of your eyelid as well as the lower lash line.


The flattering shade gives green eyes a brilliant radiance, plus it’s perfect for all eye shapes and sizes, too.

Intensify your eyeshadow

For a dramatic eye look, apply a darker eyeshadow to your upper lash line. Make sure to blend your eyeshadow well—all the way to the eyebrows. 

Create highlights

Apply a light, shimmery eyeshadow from your inner eye corner to the middle of your eyelid to make your eyes look bigger.

Apply eyeliner

Choose a color that’s similar to the darker eyeshadow to accentuate your lower lashes as well. 

Apply your chosen eyeliner to your lower lash line. 

Give your lashes volume and length

Highlight your green eyes with the right mascara!
