Eye-makeup: 50 shades of green

Think green, from lime to jade stone

Eye-makeup: 50 shades of green Think green, from lime to jade stone

Blame it on the eyelids of Selena Gomez when, in 2019, the make-up artist Hung Vanngo had the intuition to make-up of a crunchy apple metallic color. It took two years to get that kind of green in your eyes. Considering that the runways of Autumn-Winter Fashion Week 2022 have elevated the green to the peak color of the moment, it should not surprise the boom that the shades of grass and healthy vegetables have had, today, even on makeup.

Vibrant eye shadows, sexy eyeliner, daring layering, all to replicate already this season. And to think that this color was always less used in our palettes, leaving the pod practically intact. Green lends itself well to warm or icy pinkish undertones, it is good to red haired but especially to brunettes, while blondes will have to play with some shock nuances, turning to the tones of sage and mint to make the most of their looks. For this, see the entry "Vittoria Ceretti". A cool idea surely comes from Versace's the catwalk, which used fluo green paired with vibrant aquamarine, giving rise to a very graphic and elongated cat-eye.

For the less experienced, Prabal Gurung comes to the rescue, offering pop-colored accents in the extreme corners of the eyes. Beautiful is also Emma Chamberlain's idea to match a thin green line to smoked anthracite on the lid. A further style lesson to follow carefully comes from Dior, who has the brilliant idea of using green in the outer corner of the eye to give depth to a bright color like gold. And then, as well demonstrated by Zendaya and Yara Shahidi, no fear to combine it with a sweater or a dress of the same shade, to be green from head to toe, very cool trend among gen-z-ers, as demonstrated daily by their feeds.
