Just last year I dipped my toe in the green eye shadow pool so I am still experimenting with which greens work for me, my complexion and my eye color. I don’t think I actually own any true Emerald shades but I have accumulated a few other green shades. Click on the next button to see what each blogger has chosen for their Emerald look.
My ‘fallback’ green is found in the Hourglass Visionaire Eye Shadow Duo in Dune ($38). One side of the duo is a shimmery beige while the other is a deep olive green with black undertones.
Not only do these shades naturally compliment each other, but they are also the quality we’ve come to expect from the Hourglass Cosmetics brand. These shadows don’t crease, fade or disappear midday. In fact, I didn’t even use a primer and they stayed put all day! They are highly pigmented, the texture silky smooth and they blend like a dream.
Dune is easily adaptable too; it can give a polished sophisticated look or go all out sultry for that eagerly anticipated date night. I opted for this daytime look: the beige champagne side all over the lid, olive green in the crease and to line with. Dune is a lovely combination, it’s great for those looking to ramp up a neutral look without going over the top.
