Your 101 guide to wearing green eye make-up this season

This season, we’re giving the green light to vivid forest and khaki hues

By ELLE team  July 16th, 2018

When you think of lime green eyeshadow, chances are it brings back scary memories of wedding make-up orchestrated by your neighbourhood parlour lady. But now, the neon hue has got a makeover and emerged as S/S 2018’s coolest colour. Forget a smoked out look with dollops of black mascara — the key is to keep it clean with a creamy green eyeshadow over the lids, like the models at Tracy Reese.

If you’re a novice who doesn’t want to risk looking like a character out of an Avengers movie, take your cue from Elie Saab and Marni, and wear a swipe of green only on the outer corner of your lids, leaving the rest bare.

“If you are scared of bright make-up, start by wearing a small accent on your under-eye instead of the whole eyelid” – Namrata Soni
