Create a fresh green makeup look with extra shimmer

For a long time, green eye shadow was absent from the makeup world. Deep shades like forest green were used as liner, but a shimmering verdant lid was nowhere to be seen. Thanks to a love of vibrant colors, many makeup artists and manufacturers have brought the color back in a big way.
To successfully achieve a shimmering green look, begin by sweeping lime green along your crease. This will serve as a transition, so the skin color below your brow bone won’t look so stark. Pat forest green onto the lid, then top it with a coat of shimmering green for a wide-awake look. Don’t forget the area under your lower lashes. It rounds out the look and gives the makeup a balanced effect.
