Green Envy

Green is a fantastic color for those with Reddish-Brown eyes and also Hazel eyes. Since green is a complementary color to red on the color wheel, it really brings out the warmth in the eye color. 

When wearing a bright color on your eyes, make sure that you avoid any shimmer on your brow bone, use a matte highlight instead. 
NEVER bring the color all the way to your brows, this is too dramatic and it is best reserved for stage makeup.
Make sure you blend out the eyeliner to create a smokey effect and so there are no harsh lines.
Keep the rest of your face subtle so that all the attention will be on your eyes. 
The best lipstick colors that complement  green eyeshadow are: pinks, nudes, and peachy tones.
Most importantly, Have fun! Makeup is supposed to be an art form, if you make a mistake, just remove it and start over! 
I hope these tips will help you create your own version of this look. :)
