HOW TO WEAR GREEN EYESHADOW

WITH MEGHAN NGUY
  • Make them green with envy—literally. The green smokey eye look is so lit you’ll be turning away the compliments. The latest spin on the black smokey eye, this version is just a little more fashion-forward for those who like to mix things up. Especially gorgeous on our brown-eyed friends, it looks awesome on anyone and is a must for nighttime. Makeup artist Meghan Nguy creates the look on model Karina Milan and breaks down the steps for us below.
