3 Green Eye Looks for St. Patrick’s Day

Green Eye Looks

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, we asked our editorial makeup artist Cassandra Garcia to share three wearable green eye looks that won’t make you look like a leprechaun. “Just remember to pair these looks with a nude lip,” she advises. (We recommend a sheer nude Creamy Lip Color.) For all three looks, she recommends the Angle Eye Shadow Brush, the Ultra Fine Eye Liner Brush and the Ultra Precise Eye Liner Brush. You’ll want to keep the attention on your eyes, if you’re feelin’ lucky…

Green Eye Looks

Green Liner + Neutral Shadow

“Use a neutral shade of eye shadow on your lid,” Garcia recommends. We have a selection of nudes in the powder Eye Shadow collection, for example. “Then, use a green liner, whether it’s your favorite cat-eye or a wing liner.” She recommends Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in Ivy Shimmer Ink, which is green with inflections of sparkle.

Black Liner + Dark Green Eye Shadow

“Apply Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in Black Ink at the base of the lashes,” Garcia says. “Then, double line your eyes with a dark green eye shadow like Metallic Eye Shadow in Balsam.” You can smudge the eye shadow for a more diffused effect.

Emerald Green Smoky Eyes

“Start with a soft brown eye shadow, like Long-Wear Cream Shadow in Cement, on the lower lid,” Garcia says. “Then, smudge a green shadow like Sequin Eye Shadow in Comet, from the lash line up, layering it with a neutral shade like Eye Shadow in Shell.” This smokey eye look is surprisingly versatile—you can even wear it after St. Patrick’s Day—because it transitions into a color that complements the green. The darkest color on your eyes should be the green, since greens are warm and green shadows tend to have some gold flecks.

  3. I have to try the Balsam shadow. I have grey-green eyes and green shadow seems to work [ever so lightly] for me.
