Did you know that only 2% of the world’s population have green eyes? I love being part of that tiny percentage!

I also love it when I get to do wedding makeup for a bride with green eyes – it is so easy to make a green eyed girl’s makeup look simply stunning, and with very little makeup.
If you look at this picture of Angelina Jolie (who has green eyes) you will see that her eyes captivate you, not her eye makeup. In fact she doesn’t look overly made up at all. She just looks beautiful.
When you are approaching makeup, and especially approaching bridal makeup, the key is to create the illusion that there is very little makeup going on. You want to bring out the best features, make the eyes spark, and see gorgeous girl rather than piles of makeup.
When he sees you we want your groom to get lost in your eyes instead of trying to find you under layers of makeup.
With green eyes they key is to play up the eye color so that they become the focus on the face. The way to do this is by using basic color theory. Choose eye shadow colors that are opposite green on the color wheel.
You can see here that the shades opposite to green are made up of reds, purples and pinks, edging their way into oranges. I translate the orange end into beautiful copper bronzes and melon tones.
Although I am crazy about red eye shadow, it’s not a shade we normally associate with wedding makeup looks. Instead of red eye shadow, think about red based brown.
The best eye shadow shades for brides with green eyes are pinks and plums, reddish browns and copper bronzes.
