Did you know that only 2% of the world’s population have green eyes?
Well, it’s true! So if you’re one of those lucky brides who was born with green eyes, you are a rarity indeed! Anytime I have a client in my chair with green eyes I’m always in awe of their beauty. There is something so pretty about green eyes. The trick with green coloured eyes is to play up the colour so that they become your focal point. What better way than to accentuate them with makeup! The best way to determine which colour eye shadow is best for which eye colour is to pick the opposite to your eye colour on a colour wheel.
You’ll see above that the opposite to green is red, purple and shades of pink. That means any shade of any colour that has even a touch of those colours works well too. For example….brown shadow that has a reddish base is gorgeous on light coloured green eyes. Many makeup artists will use this analysis to determine the most flattering eye shadow colour for their client. Now you know the trick too!
