A haze of copper eyeshadow brings out the gold in your eyes and lends them a subtle smokiness.

To make the green in your eyes stand out, try reaching for red and purple tones, like this deep burgundy smoky eye by @rosem_makeup. For added smolder, trace your upper and lower water lines with a waterproof black pencil, like the Lancôme Drama Liqui-Pencil Dramatic Eyeliner in Café Noir.
