Anyone can wear green eyeshadow, no matter the eye colour! There’s something for everyone!
1. Turquoise Eyeshadow
Starting off these green eyeshadow looks with this gorgeous turquoise eyeshadow! Green has so many shades and colours within it that you can try out, sometimes all you need to do is think out of the box!
Style this eyeshadow with neutral makeup on the rest of the face for the eyes to stick out and be all the wow factor!
2. Fairytale Glam
This fairytale eyeshadow look is definitely more for parties, mainly due to the rhinestones. You can dress it down or up, but either way, you’ve got to admit that the colours used are gorgeous.
Check out all of the detail from light green to dark green and grey!
3. Wildlife Cut-Crease
Get all the shades of wildlife in one eyeshadow look! It is more or less one shade on the eyelid, with a stunning cut-crease allowing a few more green shades!
Finish off the look with some lime green eyeliner, sometimes it’s the little details that tie the look together! Use the new Urban Decay Wild Greens Eyeshadow Palette to create this look.
4. Glittery Green
Want a green eyeshadow look that’s not overpowering? This glitter-green eye is exactly that! If you look closely you can see that it has a touch of blue in it too. It’s classy, elegant and easy to achieve!
5. Kiwi-Inspired Eyes
Stuck for inspiration? Sometimes inspiration is all around us and all we need to do is actually see it! Do you love kiwis?
Why not try out a kiwi eyeshadow look, it’s beautiful and the black speckles add some fun factor too! Green eyeshadow doesn’t need to be boring!
6. Bottle Green and Gold
Green and gold are kinda sisters on the colour wheel, making them pair beautifully together in an eyeshadow look.
Opt for dark green to get that powerful contrast and finish with bright gold in the centre. Do the same under the lower lashes to get the full effect.

7. Dramatic Lowe Liner
If you don’t want to try out green eyeshadow, but still want some green makeup, opt for green eyeliner! Wear it on the top or bottom depending on how daring you’re feeling;)
8. Pale Mint Eyes
Green doesn’t need to be heavy and this pale mint eyeshadow look is proof of that! It’s simple and easy for anyone to do. This look looks spectacular with blue eyes, but would work well with all-coloured eyes!
9. Emerald Corners
Keep it simple with a dash of bright green eyeliner on the 2 corners of your eyes. Ideal for those who want a little splash of colour but not too much of it!
10. Teal With A Pop Of Aqua
Teal is in the green and blue family, somewhere in the middle of them both. When combined with some light green, it gives a gorgeous effect.
To get the finished look here, add a bright green line on the crease of the eyelid! Use the Sweet Oasis Artistry Palette to get this look!
11. Snake Eyes
Get a snake vibe with this snake-inspired eyeshadow. It’s a green smokey eye look, but with a fun twist!
The eyeliner has a duo tone, it’s mainly black with a little flick of bright green coming through at the end! Fun and original!
12. Sparkly Peacock
Go all out with this peacock-inspired eyeshadow look. You can do this look with any colour combination, but you’ve got to admit, it looks pretty epic in green!
13. Jade shadow
This eyeshadow look is simple and elegant. Use one shimmery dark green shade over the eyelid; the best part is that it matches all colour eyes!
If you want to add some extra dimension go for a shade darker on the outer corners and lighter on the inner ones.
14. Wintery Eyes
With green and blue next to each other on the colour wheel, they make the perfect eyeshadow combination for a colourful eye that’s not too out on your face!
Top it up with some shimmer and snowflakes and you’ll have yourself a beautiful winter eyeshadow look!
15. Contrasting Neon
If bright and colourful eyeshadow is your thing, then you’ll love this neon green eyeshadow look! The trick here is that contrasting colours are used, the purply shade next to the green makes the green really pop!
16. Feeling Smokey
We’ve done green to blue eyeshadow so now it’s time to cover yellow to green- the colours on the other side of green! This eyeshadow look is mesmerising with blue eyes, the yellow and green contrast brings them to life!
It’s a light and bright look, perfect for the spring and summer months when everything is cheerier!
17. Dusty vibes
This dusty green eyeshadow look is super elegant and classy. Wear it on a night out and you’ll steal the show!
Of course, it helps if you have a gorgeous eye colour like the model, but even if you don’t, this look is a winner! Use Natasha Denona Zendo Eyeshadow Palette to get this look.
18. Shimmery Cut-Crease
Ending off these green eyeshadow looks with this dazzling, sparkling eyeshadow! Cover your eyelid with a darker green shade and then with the glitteriest eyeshadow you can find, apply it to the lids until the crease line.
Finish off the look with some pale green shimmer under the brows!
