To amp up a green gaze while keeping your makeup subtle, opt for a light, icy green eye shadow. The shade should be lighter than the color of your eyes (this trick makes your peepers look even greener).
Purple makes green eyes pop. For a bold, bright look, use a shadow brush to dapple a loud purple shadow from lashes to crease, letting the color get sheerer as it nears the brow bone.
Gorgeous green eyes were made for smoldering shadow. A dusky bronze-hued shadow layered over a glimmering charcoal liner looks outrageously hot with your eye color.
A brown-eyed girl's best bet for the natural look? Warm, earthy shadows in taupes or cocoas. Sweep them onto your lids to add depth and dimension.
Ready to play with some hot-off-the-runway brights? Use a natural bristle shadow brush to swirl an intense blue shadow onto your lids, layering the color densely at the lashes and fading it as you work up to the brow bone.
Nab a sexy, modern twist on the smoky eye: Reach for a soft kohl liner in a shimmery, deep green shade. Dot the liner between your lower lashes, then use your finger to smudge for a rock 'n' roll messy look.

Going for that sultry smoky effect? Skip the basic blacks -- they're too much for your light-colored eyes. Layering and blending velvety cool-toned plummy shadows intensifies your gaze, sans the bullet-hole-eyed vampire effect.
