From deep jewel tones to pretty pastels, shades of emerald, sapphire and everything in between are popping up on the lids of our favorite beauty influencers and celebrity makeup artists. Whether you go for '90s-inspired frosty eyeshadow or a glamorous smoky eye, these eight makeup looks will get you excited to experiment with lush green and blue eyeshadows.

Negative Space Blue Eyeshadow

Makeup artist Alexandra French lets the model's natural skin tone peek through the swooping teal blue shadow in this look. Create a similar look at home by sweeping on a liquid shadow like NYX Professional Makeup Ultimate Glow Shots Liquid Shimmery Eyeshadow in Blueberry Baller.

Lime Green Gradient

Vibrant lime green melds into a mellower aqua blue in the wing of this elongated eye makeup look. Keeping mascara minimal allows the bright colors to remain the star of the show.

Ice Blue Smoke

Beauty influencer @nikki_makeup framed her model's eyes in beautifully blended ice blue and pale gray shadow for this subtle yet impactful look. Long, fluffy lashes add a nice contrast to the cool-toned shadow.

Green Shadow With Winged Liner

It's easy being green when you start with an ultra-pigmented shadow, as in this stunning look by makeup artist @yeshelllohi. Pair a dramatic black wing with an all-over sweep of NYX Professional Makeup Ultimate Glow Shots Liquid Shimmery Eyeshadow in Kiwi Killa to try it for yourself.

Blue-Gray Graphic Liner

Dove grays, baby blues and white accents come together in this dramatic graphic liner makeup look. Keeping the lines soft rather than sharp gives this look an organic quality that's just gorgeous.

Navy Smoky Eye

Don't overlook navy blue shadow for a slightly more understated option. In this look, @soreyart smudges a thick wash of navy onto her lids, then draws dots of eyeliner right below the lower lash line for a fun accent.

Matte Green Undereye

Eyeshadow isn't just for your lids: It can also make a dramatic impact on the under-eye, as @rowisingh's tennis ball-green look proves. The matte shadow creates a fun contrast to the glimmering gems studded around her eyes.

Glittery Blue Galaxy Eyeshadow

Take inspiration from the night sky for a glimmering look that sparkles like the stars. Varying shades of turquoise, blue, navy and deep gray blend together for a look that's attention-grabbing yet totally wearable.
