You probably already have black and brown eyeliner in your makeup bag. Maybe you even have a pop of color such as lavender or pastel blue. But green eyeliner is a surprising must-have for everyone’s beauty kit. It’s both laid-back pretty and bold depending on how you choose to wear it. Plus, it makes brown eyes look more golden and blue and green eyes look brighter. It’s super versatile.
Choose a matte Emerald green eyeliner to add a bit of drama to any eyeliner look. With a glossy finish, Emerald takes on a whole new look and becomes eye-catching for nighttime. In a deep Jade hue, green eyeliner is even more wearable and a pretty alternative to brown. Try the floating eyeliner trend or create a bold cat eye, or go more subtle by smudging the lash line for a smokey effect.
Green eyeliner isn’t a trend. In fact, it’ll never really go out of style. It looks chic all-year-round with really any lipstick shade. We especially love it on its own to let the vibrant color do all the talking. Below, shop some of our favorite green eyeliner options.
