Girls, I need help. I’ve scouroud for months on blogs, image sites, project wedding, etc. for inspiration makeup pics for my big day. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve found some great photos but all of the girls have either beautiful blue or brown eyes.
Does anyone have any inspiration pics of makeup they like on women with green eyes?
Any feedback would be helpful.
78 more days to go.

I may not be totally helpful! I have hazel eyes that tend to change colors. They look more brown or more green in certain light, etc. I find that when I were brown or purple colored eyeshadow the brown in my eyes really pops and that when I wear gold or pink eyeshadow the green in my eyes really pops. So maybe try some gold-pinky colors?

My eyes are dark, olive green, and my makeup lady put some shimmery pink/peach on my eyelid and the green really popped.

I did a test of a traditional smokey eye with charcoal and pewter shado and liner, and believe if or nght, I found it brightened my eyes more than when they used the purple-y plum colors that they usually tell green eyed gals to use.

I have green eyes that change color. They are sometimes the same color as my hair which is blond. It just depends on what mood I am in. I have found that the darker green liner and shadow are awesome with my eyes. Using a couple of different ones in the darker shades give my eyes a smokey effect and wakes them up.

I don’t have photos or anything, but I’m all about the smoky eye! It really makes my eyes pop – especially if I use shades of gray.

I agree with all of the smokiness, especially grays. I also like to use a little bit of purple. It contrasts well! Do any green-eyed brides out there have any pictures?

I have green eyes and I just typically rely on an eyelash curler and a volumizing mascara to make my eyes pop without color….kind of like the pics above.

I’m no help- my eyes are gray and I have no clue what to do with that. But my sister has green eyes and she generally does a very subtle light colored shadow with darker liner and mascara and it looks great, really makes her eyes pop (and makes me jealous!)

I have dark blonde hair with green eyes and I look at Charlize Theron pics a lot because she has similar colouring. Hopefully that helps!

My MUA did a kind of terra cotta-y neutral taupe for me on the wedding day. I normally wear shades of peach, pink, tans, and purples. I stick with black for my eyeliner and mascara.

Looking at some of Kristin Kreuk’s photos might be helpful…
Or Khloe Kardashian

My eyes are exactly the same colour as Kristin Kreuk’s above (green with a bright hazel ring just around the pupil)and I usually wear gold eyeshadow to make my eyes pop. It looks quite subtle which is nice, and I can wear it for daytime too. All the suggestions from you other green eyed ladies have made me really want to try out a new look though!!
