When you consider the various colors of the most popular eye shadows (blue, gray, brown, gold, bronze, purple, lavender, pink, hazel, green) I feel one of the best colors to bring the pop, sizzle and punch out of your eyes is gorgeous shades of greens. Green eye shadows, for adding so much glamour to your face, tend to fade into the background of more popular cosmetic colors. Such a glamour girl pity!
Green eye shadows complement all color of eyes and match well with lipstick shades of reds, pinks and golds. The color green is a positive color, the color of growth, spring, renewal and rebirth. Eyes painted with glorious greens evoke a beautiful face fit for a queen.
Eye shadow is a cosmetic that is applied on the eyelids and under the eyebrows. It can also be worn underneath the lower eyelashes. Eye shadow, in addition to adding sparkle to your eyes, can also be used to make the wearer’s eyes stand out and look more attractive.
Eye Shadow Fun Fact: Eye shadow can add depth and dimension to one’s eyes, complement the eye color, make one’s eyes appear larger, or simply make the wearer’s eyes more noticeable. Eye shadow comes in many different colors and textures.
Eye Shadow Fun Fact: Eye shadow is generally made from a powder and mica, but can also be found in liquid, pencil, cream and mousse form.
Cosmetics, also known as makeup, are substances or products used to enhance the appearance or scent of the body. In the United States, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which regulates cosmetics, defines cosmetics as “intended to be applied to the human body for cleansing, beautifying, promoting attractiveness, or altering one’s appearance without affecting the body’s structure or functions.”
Ah, glimmering, glorious green eye shadows. I see cosmetics as an art form, much like a painter filling in a canvas with breathtaking brush strokes of paint colors!
There are many shades of green that make for glamorous eyes, some being pale green, sea green, emerald green, jade green, lime green, dark green, aqua, olive green, yellow green and grass green. In the realm of eye shadow colors, a green eye screams to be seen!
Powerful and serene in just a few swipes! I understand all the green hype!
Eye catching glamour with green eye shadows!
Many people use eye shadow simply to improve their appearance, but it is also commonly used in theater and other plays to create a memorable look, with bright, bold colors. Depending on the wearer’s skin tone and experience, the effect of eye shadow usually brings out glamour and gains attention.
How to Apply Eye Shadow:
- Place a primer on the eyelid area where you wish to apply the eye shadow.
- Decide if you would like to apply cream eye shadows, powder eye shadows, or a combination.
- Apply the color where you prefer with either an applicator brush or your fingertips.
- If you prefer, eye shadows look particularly pretty when you use both lighter and darker shades of the same basic color. With green eye shadow, a dark green or olive shade just above and below the eyelashes, with a lighter green or pale green shade above the upper eyelid (much like a smokey eye using greens) looks lovely.
- Blend well.
Now give a hand to your wowing green eye shadow wonderland!
Green Eye Shadow Fashion Tip: If you want to wear green eye shadow but feel a completely green eye is too bold and bright, green eye shadows look particularly appealing when toned down with gold shades or aqua shades. A mix of these colors match splendidly for an attractive, stunning look!
Eye Shadow Removal: To remove your eye shadow, a commercial eye makeup remover cream works well, and can be purchased at department stores, drug stores and beauty supply stores. Petroleum jelly works wonders for removing eye shadow (and other cosmetics such as mascara, blush, eye liner and lipstick) with ease. Also, warm water and soap works, but be careful with soap near the eyes. Ouch!
Cosmetic Fun Fact: Cosmetics have been used for as long as there have been people to use them. Face painting is mentioned in the Old Testament (Book of Ezekiel 23:40), and eye shadow was used in Egyptian burials dating back to 10,000 BC. The word “cosmetae” was first used to describe Roman slaves whose duty was to bathe men and women in perfume.
Be a glam queen and reign supreme in eyes decorated with colors of cool, serene green!
Green Fun Fact: In color psychology, the color green is the color of balance and harmony. Green renews and restores depleted energy. Green is the sanctuary away from the stresses of modern living, restoring us back to a sense of well being. Green is an emotionally positive color and gives us the ability to love and nurture ourselves and others unconditionally.
