The Best Makeup Products for Green Eyes, According to Editors

While we’re firm believers that you can rock whatever eye makeup shade you want, there are certain shades that seem designed to make a specific eye color sparkle. This is definitely true for green eyes, which look just as beautiful in their natural state as they do with a purple eye look or soft nude smoky eye. Keep reading for our product recommendations to make green eyes pop.

Green Eyeshadow Palette 

Yes, green eyes can rock green eyeshadow! We love the Wild Greens Eyeshadow Palette from Urban Decay. This palette features a full spectrum of greens, from a soft mint to a deep hunter green, plus some earthy neutrals. 


Purple Eyeliner 

Purple and green are contrasting colors on the color wheel, which means they enhance each other and look even bolder when paired together. A purple liner, such as the NYX Professional Makeup Epic Wear Liner Stick in Fierce Purple, is a punchy, long-lasting option that will make your eyes pop more than a basic black pencil.

Nude Eyeshadow Palette

Everyone needs a good nude eyeshadow palette in their makeup arsenal, but when you’re shopping for one for green eyes, it’s important to seek out rich warm tones that complement your eye color. The Maybelline New York Nudes of New York Eyeshadow Palette is full of toasty browns, shimmering golds and a striking red shade called Fighter.

Purple Mascara

For a softer alternative to black mascara, choose a rich, red-based plum shade, such as the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Original Mascara in Deep Burgundy. Red lies directly across from green on the color wheel, making them complementary colors that are sure to amp up the look of your eye’s natural pigments.

Purple Eyeshadow Palette

In case you haven’t noticed, purple is key for making green eyes stand out. The Urban Decay Naked Ultraviolet Eyeshadow Palette combines soft lavenders, deep burgundy hues and electric violets all in one place — plus, it saves some room for flattering neutrals and a cute mint green.
