Teehee… Kermit is green and I don’t seem to recall him ever wearing eyeshadow but hey, made ya look! 🙂 Anyway, I love green eyeshadow – ask anyone who’s known me long enough. I wear green of every hue available at any given opportunity. I get the most compliments when wearing green eyeshadow so I must be doing something right! When I want a pick me up in the middle of a long week, I wear green and last week, I was inspired by Karen‘s MAC Golden Olive pigment tutorial.
The thing is, I have MAC’s Golden Olive pigment on hand – their pigments are the only MAC products next to brushes that I like but I did not have the rest of the products Karen used. So, whats the next best thing to do? Improvise of course!
These are the products I used to create what I called the “Green Eyed Monster” look 🙂
The products I used were:-
- MAC Golden Olive Pigment
- L’oreal On the Loose powder eyeshadow in Gold Thrush
- Bobbi Brown Sepia gel eyeliner
- Jane EyeZing in Magic Mushroom
- Wet n Wild Amazon Trio – only Emerald green
You don’t have to use the same products I do so long as you find similar colours or shades.
Here is what my green eyed look looked like.
- MAC Golden Olive pigment all over my eyelid
- Sepia gel liner to line
- Magic Mushroom at the outer corners for definition
- Emerald green mixed with Magic Mushroom to line the bottom lash
- Gold Thrush on inner corners and brow bone
The picture on the left seems to get the colours right while the one on the right shows how it looks when the light hits i.e. gold-green. I don’t dare call this a tutorial for green eyeshadow because its not but its an easy look to duplicate which I think will suit many so give it a shot! 🙂
Do you like green eyeshadow? Are you afraid of green eyeshadow?

i lurve this gold green! subtle yet really makes an impact. i think gold goes really well with olive green
Gold and green make the perfect combination – the next thing is to work out which tone of which to pair together 🙂
I love green eyeshadows, feel so exoctic wearing them…heehee
I love green eyeshadows, feel so exoctic wearing them…heehee must try the a gold shadow with the green, like the effect! Not too ‘over’ for day wear
Gold goes beautifully with green – try a lighter gold for the day and a brighter gold for nights 🙂
I just have to comment before I even read this post – it’s perfectly on time!
I have started wearing green eyeliner and have already gotten compliments! It looks so beautiful with brown eyes! I’ve been looking for some nice green eyeshadows to accompany the eyeliner – want to try a green smokey eye too, so thanks, right on time for me! 😛
I find that green is really nice on Asian eyes – I think its the skintone 🙂 Do post how your look goes
I like green too! But I’m wearing neutrals for work coz its more professional not to be distracting. My workplace is quite formal.
So, did you get your pick me up?? 😉
Yeah green kinda stands out in a formal workplace – I’m so glad mine isn’t 😉
awesome look, PB! Green is my color too but I’m trying to get away from it! i also love to see you wearing cool blues 🙂
Thank you! I love blues too – blues and greens and sometimes together! :O
I love green eyeshadow too.. although I won’t say I looks like Kermit with green eyeshadows on but I do love to know new techniques on how to apply green on my eyes… Thank ParisB
I hope you discover some new ways to use green shadows – what do you usually pair green with?
I like green but not those light color one. I like the deep emerald kinda green. Nice make up by the way. 🙂
Thank you! I love emerald green but its so hard to find a true emerald green that stays emerald on my lids. Most of them look too dark when I wear them.
PB, this green pigment works so well on your skin! And this is a very pretty look!!! I love it!
And I LOVE greens, it works well on my skintone too!!!
Thanks! Golden Olive is one of my fave MAC Pigments and I only have a sample! :O hehe…
i like this title so i needed to peep. good you did an EOTD!!! love it.
i love greens!!!
i hope i never look like Kermit!
Yay made ya look 😉 I’m sure you’ll never look like Kermit LOL…
I love green, although not every green suits my skin tone.
You are absolutely right. Not every shade of green suits everyone so it takes a bit of experimentation. For me though most greens are good except the dark khaki greens.

Well done!! Proof that Asian women can wear green and not look ill or like kermit!!
Love the colors!
LOL… Yes I think Asian skin takes green beautifully! Thanks!
Traclyn Yeoh says
Never hate them at all. I think that green gives a fresh look. Great job!
Thanks and I love green so much I’m going to try to wear them everyday this week LOL…
Yah I like the Look!!! Gold and Green together is my fave!!! hehehe hmmm I find that it suits my eyes the best. It’s great for any occassions and it’s really very natural 🙂
I’m not sure about it looking natural but it certainly packs a punch. Glad you found a colour that works!
Afraid of green e/s? Never!! 😀 I’m a big fan of green shades. I like the combination of gold and green too 🙂 These ones you have are gorgeous. Strange to say I was never a fan of MAC pigments. I’m not into pigments in general, I guess.
Yay for green e/s! MAC pigments are one of the only items from MAC I will buy. But the newer ones don’t grab my attention as much as the older ones did. I think its the repetition.
This is so pretty and it looks great on you.
I often wear green eyeshadow, I love it!
I’m sure green eyeshadow looks lovely on you too! 😀
For some reasons, I look rather odd if I apply just green eyeshadow. However, if I blend it with a hint of purple/pink, then it gives me this very soft-Spring look. Interesting & very feminine~
Perhaps you can try it out too !
Green eyeshadow is one colour that cannot stand on its own – it makes anyone look strange. I tried it with pink today as you suggested. Its pretty and very suitable for spring 🙂
Gold and green are good together. You used some really nice items from way back; specifically the OTL, MAC GO piggy and Jane’s MM! Thanks for reminding me of them. :O)
I LOVE green eyeshadow!! It’s probably one of the few shades that really work on me. I’d prefer a brighter green, sorta turquoise if you will, but this works too.
Gorgeous. 🙂 Great for glamming up for the evening. oh paris, this is far from being a green-eyed monster tho it’s a cute way to name it!
