Green-eyed gals may long for sassy baby blues or sparkly chestnut browns, but greens can be just as gorgeous. Mixing eye shadows is a great way to play with color and figure out what really makes your eyes stand out. Green eyes are best complemented by brown and burgundy eye shadows, which makes for a natural yet dramatic look. Try blending three shades of brown and get ready to see those peepers pop!
Sweep eye shadow primer across your lids, all the way up to your brow bone. This will make your shadow blend more easily and keep your makeup looking fresh all day long.
Apply medium brown eye shadow across your entire eyelid with an applicator brush. This will serve as the base for your neutral eye shadow look.
Apply dark brown shadow to the crease of your eyelid, from the inner corners out to the lower brow bone.
Dust off any dark eye shadow left on the applicator with a tissue.
Sweep a light brown shade of eye shadow across your brow bone, all the way up to your eyebrows.
Work a bit of dark brown shadow into your lower lash line using the smudge-tip shadow brush. This adds drama to your look without the harshness of using eye liner on your lower lashes.
Finish with two coats of mascara; the choice of color is yours, but darker mascaras (like plums and blacks) will make your green eyes pop.

The more blended your eye shadow is, the more natural your look will be. Blend shadow colors together using your fingertip if your shadow is looking streaky.
If you want extra oomph, use a dark brown liner pencil to accentuate your upper lash line. A little bit can add major drama.
