5 Eye Makeup Products That Make Green Eyes Pop

They say green eyes are the rarest of all the eye colors. According to science, this is because a number of factors have to come together like a perfect storm for green eyes to even happen. But because they’re so special, it can be a struggle to find personalized products, tips and tricks that are specifically geared toward green eyes — until now. Ahead, we’re rounding up the best eye makeup colors for green eyes — from purples and coppers to taupes, emerald greens and grays — as well as five beauty products that you should add to your beauty stash to really make green eyes stand out. 



Green Eye Must-Have #1: Purple Eyeliner

Line your eyes with the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Empire to really make your green eyes pop. The deep purple hue will complement the green in your eyes more than a regular black eyeliner. 

Green Eye Must-Have #2: Nude Eyeshadow Palette

The IT Cosmetics Superhero Eye Transforming Super Palette contains the perfect nude eyeshadow shades you need to create a no-makeup makeup look. We’re gravitating toward Fearless (a rust shade), Superhero (a deep purple shade) and Aura (a light bronze shade) for green-eyed beauties.

Green Eye Must-Have #3: Purple Mascara

The YSL Beauty Mascara Vinyl Couture in I’m The Unpredictable Burgundy is one of the best mascara options to really emphasize green eyes. Because red lies directly across from green on the color wheel, any purple shade (especially one with red undertones) will help green stand out.

Green Eye Must-Have #4: Green Eyeshadow Palette

You shouldn’t be afraid to embrace green shadow just because you have green eyes. Juvia's Place The Tribe Eyeshadow Palette contains nine eyeshadow shades, including striking emerald green hues, that can be worn alone or together for an extra pop of green.

Green Eye Must-Have #5: Purple Eyeshadow Palette

If you haven’t already noticed, purple is key to making green eyes stand out. Add a purple eyeshadow palette to your makeup kit, like the new Urban Decay Naked Ultraviolet Eyeshadow Palette that contains a lineup of pale lavenders, deep violets and poppy purples in both matte and metallic finishes. It also has a good selection of neutral hues, so you can create a wide range of makeup looks.
