To make your eyes pop, you want to look for any shade of green eye shadow that contrasts with your eye color. If your eyes are light, go with dark olive; if they're darker, try a jade shade. La Bella Donna's Montagna is a beautiful shade ($20).


For daytime, bring green in as your eyeliner. Choose an eye pencil in olive or jade, and trace it along top lashes. (Don't worry about getting in perfect.) Using a flat brush, drag the color out and slightly up into a slight cat eye to awaken eyes and highlight your iris.


For nighttime, your green eye shadow will come in handy. Line the inner rims of top and bottom lashes with a brown pencil, and then smudge it along the top lash line for a smoky look. Apply a shimmery green cream shadow on lids. For extra sparkle, place a white highlighter below brows.

Brown eyes look best in a blend of blue-green eye shadow. The blue tint will actually bring out rich, orangey tones. If your brown eyes have some hazel to them, pick a yellow-green like Glo Minerals Rain Forest ($18.50).


Using a flat shadow brush, blend a layer of emerald green eye shadow from your lash line to the crease. Add a highlighter from your crease to your brow and blend like crazy! Simple as that!


To sex it up, find a palette of medium and dark blue-greens. Apply the deepest green eye shadow to your crease. Glo Minerals Mermaid is a great choice ($18.50)! Here’s the trick- smudge the medium shade on outer corners only. Finish the look off with black liquid liner.

Blue beauties look best in dark hunter-green eye shadow. The contrast actually brightens up dark blue eyes. If you have lighter blue eyes, choose a mossy green.


Apply a hunger or moss eye pencil to your lower and upper lash line. Finish the look off with brown mascara on top lashes for pop!


Blend a mossy or hunter green eye shadow all over your lid. Take a cool, minty green eye shadow and apply it to your brow bone. Voila!

Best of luck to you! Not that you’ll need it;) Happy St. Patrick’s Day! XOXO Alana
