Green Smokey eye

SPRING MAKEUP LOOK: GREEN EYESHADOW INSPO 💚

I’m well aware that green eyeshadow isn’t always the first choice when it comes to smokey eyes (especially in Spring) – however, I wanted to break the ice of its reputation and present in this post that green eyeshadow is definitely an eyeshadow to look out for this season. Think bright pale (the 60s) green, the variety of green leaves inspired by the blossomed flowers and trees in the spring. Although many would consider earthy tones to be brown for smokey eyes, I think green is ultimately just as versatile and suitable for all eye colours and skin tones in this category. Like all eyeshadow colours, it’s about how you apply and wear the shadow that makes all the difference in elevating your look.

The Palette I used for this look is in collaboration with Makeup Artist, CarmiMua and Makeup Revolution known as the Kiss of Fire Palette. I haven’t used the palette enough to report my full review on it although I will say that the main eyeshadow I used in this post, dominion, actually looked blue in the pan rather than green. When it comes to eyeshadows like these it’s good to note that whichever colourful eyeshadow you use will look different on every skin-tone – which is why I’ve scouted my top 7 alternative green eyeshadows you can check out by clicking here.
