The green color palette is particularly exciting again this year and above all diverse: from light fresh grass green, soft mint, metallic shimmering khaki, strong moss green, royal emerald green to color mix exotic bronze, sand or mauve is the creative implementation of color. there are no limits to hope.

Noble eyeliner or effective smoky eyes – whatever you want is allowed
If you have already decided on a suitable color, the second part now follows: The shape and design of the green glow. We are excited about many different eye makeups this Christmas. An exciting variant of the classic smoky eyes are, for example, smoky eyes in striking green tones.
Is that how it works:
First step: As a foundation, apply a light foundation around the eye area. This visually brightens up the skin area and makes your eyes look more alert. To fix this primer, you can also apply a touch of colorless powder to the eye area.
Second step: Draw a line on the upper eyelid with a kohl pencil or eyeliner, very close to the lash line. Choose a black, blue, or metallic shade if you’re using a cool green palette to make up your smoky eyes, or a warm, earthy dark brown shade if you’ve chosen a warm color palette.
Third step: Now apply the darkest shade from your eyeshadow palette to the upper eyelid from lash line to crease. The lower eyeliner can also be painted with the darker shade of eyeshadow. The lighter shade now enters the crease of the eyelid, where it blends in with the darker shade. Then apply the light color on the crease of the eyelid and blend it towards the eyebrows. As a last step, apply a large amount of deep black mascara to your lashes, and your eye-catching green smoky eyes are ready!
But it’s not just the smoky, sparkling eyes that create a memorable look – if smoky eyes are a little “too much” for you, you can also try a sleek eyeliner in a rich emerald green. Creamy Lightweight Gel Liner by Laura Mercier or Smashbox and Bobbi Brown Eyeliner Pencil in Shimmering Metallic ‘Forest’ are great for this: after foundation and a thorough powder, so the eyeliner remains instead, a line pulls hard on the lash line and lets it fade in an extra dramatic way with an eccentric 1950s curve, or in a classic straight way.
