You green-eyed girls have it pretty good — emphasis on the pretty. Your jewel-toned eyes have non-stop sparkle, making it hard for people to look away. However, green eyes can be tricky when it comes to shadow. You want to make sure you pick a color that complements your peepers and allows them to shine. We want to help you out, so we asked makeup extraordinaire Emma Willis to show us how to do a killer smoky eye just for green eyes!
Step 1: Cover lid with eye primer (we love Urban Decay Primer Potion).
Step 2: Brush a purple shadow like NYX Cosmetics Hot Singles Eye Shadow in Kama Sutra all over the lid and along the lower lashes.
Step 3: Blend a deeper, plum shade like NYX Cosmetics Hot Singles Eye Shadow in Arrogance. Buff the color out toward the temples.
Step 5: Finish the look with mascara.
