How to do makeup with Green Dress for a party
Having said that, in green too there can be variety of shades like a lime green, medium green, grass green, olive green, sea green, dark green or even an emerald green. So, let’s check out which are the beautiful makeup that looks great with green colored dresses.
1. Face Makeup
For the face, it is always good that you have a good flawless skin. For green dress, the idea is to make the skin look polished and smoother. A bit of blemishes etc are still fine but a heavy cakey looking makeup with green dress for the day time is a strict NO NO. Reason for this is that when you go heavy with the unnecessary makeup it looks a tad bad with greens. On the other hand for black dress the heavy base can still look good and for the red dress as well.
- Try using a sheer light foundation and cover the under eye circles. This will give a better than before skin.
- You can apply the foundation in dots and blend that using your finger or a foundation brush. We like to use foundation brushes as that gives good finish.
- So, once the foundation and concealer is done, set that up with loose powder.
- Now let’s move to the eye makeup idea.
2. Eye makeup
You may not use blue eye shadow with blue freely without thinking much but green eye makeup with a green party dress can never look bad.
You may have noticed at our segment where we discussed about the makeup with blue dresses, we said that it is good to try a navy blue, brown or black eye shadow make up with blue dress though with green you can use green. Moreover, green eye makeup looks so complimenting with your green clothing.
How to do green eye makeup:
- Apply a base or primer to prime and even tone the eyelids.
- Then take a green eye shadow matching the dress and apply it on the eye lids.
- Take a blending brush and take 2-3 shades lighter green eye shade and apply on the crease area. Mix a little black if you do not have a darker green color.
- Apply eyeliner as per your choice but do not use a green eyeliner over green shadow .
- Apply mascara and you’re done.
Other eye shadows that can be used with green dress are the ever green smokey black eyes, soft brown, kohl rimmed eye makeup. Or even a gold and bronzey makeup for eyes looks great with your dress.
3. Lip Makeup
Lip colors should be chosen carefully while wearing greens. This is because the color of the dress and the color of the lipstick shade should complement else that can look out of the place. Okay, so the best lipstick that looks beautiful with a green dress will be a coral, pinks, peachy colors, deep red or strawberry red. These lipstick colors should be chosen as per your skin tone.
It will be good that if you are wearing dark lipsticks with a dark green dress then you should always line the lips. It brings more definition to the lips and also makes the lipsticks stay all day! Secondly, you can also try a glossy soft pink, corally or even a glossy orange with a medium green or lime green dress. You can also try it for sea green dress
4. Cheeks or Blush
For the evening makeup, you can try a bronzer with the green clothing or for the day time try a soft light peachy color. This will just adds a natural flush but will not be visible much.
A light pink can also be tried. Apply a highlighting color as well for the party look as with green too highlighted brows and cheeks looks nice.
