Green Eyeliners That Make Brown Eyes Pop

I am slightly fixated on green eyeliners, and I love how they make dark eyes stand out. It's a great way of adding a pop of colour without having to put in too much effort!

Many brands are bringing out kohl pencils in different shades, as not everyone wants to wear black, brown or grey. Greens are perfect to use around this time of year, but i still use them through the colder months as it reminds me of summer!

*Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen in Emerald Gold has more of a bright green tone to it with gold glitter running through. It's a great pencil to smudge on the lower lash line and don't worry, the glitter doesn't go everywhere!

MAC Eye Kohl in Minted looks like a pencil version of MAC's eyeshadow in humid. Its is a vibrant green with a slight hint of teal. It's not as creamy as some other liners, but I find it really stays put on the waterline. 

KIKO Glamorous Eye Pencil in 410 is a deep forest green. I love using this on my upper lash liner and smudging it close to the lashes. The depth of the green looks amazing on people with brown eyes. Again, this stays quite well on the waterline and I also like using this as a base for eyeshadow. 

Tom Ford Metallic Moss is a dark moss, and sometimes it appears a blue/brown depending on how the light catches it. This is another great one to use on the upper and lower lash line, however I do find it can sometimes smudge in the inner corners of my eyes when I have used it in the waterline. 

All of these eye pencils can be used as eyeshadow bases and I love how just a swipe of green can instantly brighten up brown eyes. I find that using a coloured eye pencil is an easy way to dress up your face without having to use a lot of makeup!

Do you have any favourite greens?

  1. I do love green pencils. The Pixi one you have swatched is gorgeous. I've been using cheap ones as I'm crap at makeup but I've found the GOSH woody green eye liner from Superdrugs really pretty and once it's there, it doesn't really budge xxx
