I like the browns personally.  I have green eyes too and they always try to put purples on me, but I find that browns, or reddish browns really seem to bring out my eyes while looking more natural. I think the same is true for you.  The second picture is stunning, yet subdued and natural.  Your eyes look bigger and it brings out the lovely color of your hair.

The brown looks SO beautiful on you – maybe find a shadow in that shade with a bit of sparkle to make it fancier?  Pair that with the pinker lip of the first picture and the more natural cheek of the second, and you’ll be totally stunning

I like the purple!  I have green eyes and love the way purple really makes green pop and sparkle for special occassions.  For everyday stuffs I use more muted browns.

I actually really like the purple for a wedding day look. It’s dramatic, but not over done. You look absolutely beautiful either way!

Brown. The purple looks a little promish to me. Where as the brown is very elegent and classy looking.

The purple is beautiful but a bit…obvious, I think, but at the same time I’m not sure the brown stands out enough. Could you try more of a plum colour as a middle ground?

Brown definitely. I find the purple very distracting and a little Disney princess-y for me (sorry!). Maybe ramp up the brown a bit darker in the crease to give it a bit more drama? I agree with the PPs, the brown looks gorgeous with your skin and hair colour!

I think brown with hints of green and gold would be beautiful on your eyes. That way it is still in the color pallete that you are used to, but also making an extra speical pop.

I’m not a fan of that particular purple, but i love the rest of your makeup! i agree with Cash that it ends up looking kinda prom-ish. you should go to Ulta or Sephora and try out the Smashbox Megapixel Trio. I think something along those lines would make your eyes pop but still be different from your everyday look.

I actually really like the purple on you and not too many people can pull it off. However I think the look right now is a bit much and needs toned down a little.

I like the purple, but maybe a little less of the sparkly silver shadow on top.
