Don't forget to prime your face and eyes with a nice foundation first and if you really want to make your green look pure, pop a base of white on the lid before applying. Check out these ideas to get your eyes smiling Irish style!

1) Bright Green

Blend three different shades of green to achieve this look, starting with the lightest at the inner corner of the eye. If you want to make your eyes look extra white, then pop some white at the inner corners too. At the outer edge use a very dark green to outline the look and complete with some eyeliner and a slick of mascara.

Many people wonder how to get the white so white as in the picture on the left. You really have to cake it on and apply a few years to make it so vibrant.

3) Gold and Green

To get the very sparkly sheen over the lid, you will need to use a pigment from the Inglot range or you can use gold glitter from sinful colors.

Rainbow Bright

4) Rainbow Bright

You can be very creative with this idea. Get your hands on a pallet of colors with a wide range of greens and blues and oranges etc. You can go as expensive as you like and treat it as an investment or you can pick up some bargains online.

Traditional Celtic

5) Traditional Celtic

This reminds me of a beautiful sunset. Use plenty of bronzes to recreate this and again you will want to use a sparkly cream over it to really dazzle.

Sparkly Emerald

6) Sparkly Emerald

How amazing does this look go with green eyes? If you are feeling extra adventurous, you could get color contacts but green tends to make most eye colors look fantastic anyway! As you can see a very dark shad of green is used here with a sparkly lime green eyeliner used to complete the look.

Smokey Green

7) Smokey Green

A smokey green looks great for a look that you want to take fro day to night. To create variation use a very bright green under the eyes to complement the darkness of the greens on the lid.


Obvious Orange

      What gorgeous eyes. One of my favorite colors to use is green, as it makes brown eyes really pop.
