Whatever your eye colour, choosing the right shade of eyeshadow can really make your eyes pop. Ever since I first started to experiment with wearing makeup (around 10 years ago – eeek!), I’ve always loved trying out different shades. Today I’ll be sharing my top 3 MAC eyeshadows for green eyes – because, who doesn’t love a MAC eyeshadow!?
Green eyes look gorgeous when contrasted against red and purple tones – however this may not always seem wearable, especially on your eyes! Below are 3 MAC eyeshadows with the right undertones to make green eyes look even more beautiful – yet they’re still perfectly wearable for everyday!
1. MAC Woodwinked
MAC Woodwinked was my first ever purchase from MAC and as you can see, it’s one that has been well-loved! Woodwinked is a gorgeous antique gold shade with warm undertones which look incredible with green eyes, especially if you’ve got gold flecks in your eyes. This has a slight duo-chrome effect, so when it is blended out (such as in the outer crease), it transforms into a more red-toned bronze colour and looks as though you’ve got more than one eyeshadow on – perfect for when you want to create a beautiful eyeshadow look when you’re in a rush. I love wearing this on its own with some black liquid liner, but it also blends really nicely with other gold/bronze/brown shades.
I dedicated an entire post to MAC Amber Lights last year, and just how amazing it looks with green eyes. Amber Lights is a shimmery gold-copper shade with very warm undertones that make your eyes appear brighter and help to make blue and green eyes really stand out! Although the colour may appear a little bit more out-there than some other shades, you can use it to add a subtle pop of colour to your makeup by blending it out using a fluffy brush, just like I did here.
3. MAC Sable
MAC Sable is hands-down one of the most underrated MAC products of all time. It is described by MAC as a ‘gold-plum with bronze pearl’ shade – to me, it’s just like MAC Satin Taupe’s warm-toned sister and it is one of my favourite eyeshadows and one that I can always count on when I really want my eyes to stand out, with minimal effort involved. It’s shimmery but not glittery so it can easily be worn when you want to go for a more natural daytime look, and it also works well if you want to go for a more smokey look. Check out this post to find out why I believe MAC Sable deserves way more recognition!
