1VMV Hypoallergenics Two True Hues Eyeshadow Duo in Bleeker, $40.
Complementary eye makeup colors—the colors that are opposite your eye color on the color wheel—will make your green eye color look most vivid. When considering your best colors related to your skintone, stick with shadows and liners that also have cool undertones (like your skin). These colors won’t have any yellow-ish or orange-y tones, or “warmth” in them, but will lean more towards an “icy” look or have hints of gray in them.
Free of fragrance, dyes, phthalates, parabens and preservatives, even sensitive eyes can enjoy intense color pay off in an eyeshadow.
