We don’t know if it’s the fact that our childhoods were tainted by the slime-green of Nickelodeon award shows or our long-standing obsession with the colour pink but we’ve never been ones to willingly reach for a pan of green eyeshadow.
Call it a change in the wind, but the delightful onslaught of green eye looks on our IG and Pinterest feeds have finally got to us, and now we’re suckers for all things green.
Whether a slick of lime-green liner is your steez or hazy moss-hued shadows are your go-to, there’s a green makeup moment for everyone’s tastes.
Here’s some green-tinged inspo to get you going...
We're green with envy looking at Zoë Foster Blake's emerald shadow. So if you're looking for a low-key way to embrace green, go for an all-over lid wash, long lashes and a nude lip.

If you can't rock shimmery lime shadow to The Met Gala (with a little shamrock on the lower lashline, of course) where can you wear it?! Exactly. Full marks for Gemma Chan.

Milan’s fashion week reached an impressive crescendo this weekend when iconic designer Donatella Versave enlisted the help of pop star Dua Lipa to open and close Versace’s Spring/Summer 2022 runway show. The “New Rules” singer had her lids painted in a rainforest ombre hue of electric green and aquamarine, that tapered to an extended wing for an eclectic take on the classic va-va-voom Versace beauty we’ve come to know and love from the Italian fashion house.
