Any girl with green eyes can tell you: if she’s playing up her eye color, she’s going to use purple make-up because that’s the color that brings out emerald eyes the most. But some purples are so garish or awful, no green-eyed girl in her right mind would wear them. I can help you avoid the overly glittery or just plain boring, though… as a fellow green-eyed girl, I’ve searched my favorite make-up site, Sephora, and tried dozens of eye make-ups, so I know what’s great, and what to avoid. Here are 8 great make-up items for us girls with green eyes.
1. Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencil in 1999 (Glimmering Plum)
Price: $17.00 at sephora.com
I wear contacts, so it’s hard to apply eyeliner that’s too stiff. That’s why I love this eye pencil — as the name implies, it glides right on. It doesn’t smudge, though, so you can wear it all day without worrying about touch-ups. And the color’s gorgeous!
