Some people with green eyes can carry shades of pink while others can look out of focus with pink. So, it is completely on you, if you want to try and experiment with pinks.

Similarly, avoid using black eyeliners instead go with dark grey, dark green or even dark browns to accentuate your green eyes. If you have small eyes, outline the eyes with white or gold to make them bigger and give it a larger than normal look.

For basic daily wear or casual going out look, highlight the entire eyelid with crystalline or gold and later add shades of light plum or apricot and blend it in well with the crystalline or gold. You can use a third color of dark green, browns, metallic like copper by applying it from the middle of the eyelid to the edge of the crease by blending it properly. Otherwise, you can apply it from the inner side of the eyelid to the outer corner of the eyelid. Just blend it well for best results.

You can add the dark brown mascara and eyeliner as it is usually done adhering to the color scheme. Shades of green help make your green eyes stand out while for evening outs, plum shades and brown give a dramatic smoky effect to your eyes. It is best to keep the rest of the makeup neutral or minimal with natural blush and lip colors that look well with your complexion.
