Green is a color that compliments brown eyes very well. However I have a hard time wearing green and find that I only like emerald and forrest greens on my skin tone. Here are a few different shades of green you can try. Most are very affordable (under $10). The last makeup color-themed spotlight I did was on navy blue. Click here if you want to see it.
01. L’Oreal Colour Riche Nail Polish in Hyde Park: I got this in a gift basket prize which is great because I don’t think I would have picked it up otherwise. I love how it looks against my skin tone. The formula is thin and easy to apply, it’s opaque in two coats.
02. MAC Humid Eyeshadow: This eyeshadow is great for those who are still afraid of color as it’s not too vibrant. It also isn’t completely opaque so it can be built up or worn sheerly. It has a slight frosty/pearly finish.
03. Jordana Made To Last Eyeshadow Pencil in Endless Emerald: I will be reviewing the Made To Last pencils in the future. In short, they’re pretty good. I like them better than the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils but not as much as I love the Milani ShadowEyez.
04. The Balm Jealous Jordana Eyeshadow: Jealous Jordana is what I’d call a blackened emerald or peacock green. On the eyes it reads black with a few emerald sparkles. When worn over a green base it’s absolutely stunning.
