How to rock green eyeshadow like a pro

Green eyeshadow isn't just for St Patrick's Day. It's definitely having a moment in amongst the SS19 makeup trends too. Here's how to rock it like a pro.

Green eyeshadow may not be your normal go-to shade, but it's definitely on trend for SS19. Just because it's on trend, though, doesn't mean you have to wear it, of course. But it's nice to play around with our makeup, and you might be surprised to find yourself really liking it.

The main problem a lot of us have with colours like green, (or blue for that matter), is that they can seem dated. But, put all thoughts of Cyndi Lauper circa 1984 out of your mind, because we're looking at how to rock green eyeshadow the modern way.


At the Erdem SS19 show, Val Garland created a gorgeous green eye look. Rather than stopping at eyeshadow, she also used green eyeliner and mascara.

Lime Green


There's something very fresh and summery about a slightly glossy, lime green eye with lashings of mascara. Complete the look with a couple of faux freckles for a sun-kissed effect.

Go big or go home, right? We love this look created by makeup artist Benjamin Puckey who chose a contrasting pink lipstick to make the shadow pop even more.

Green eyeshadow doesn't have to be the focal point of your look. Instead, it can act like a little colourful highlight. The iridescent green and purple here work beautifully together.


Would you wear green eyeshadow?
