How to do makeup with Green Dress for a party

Having said that, green color is available to us in variety of different shades like lime green, medium green, grass green, olive green, sea green, dark green or even an emerald green. Based on that, let’s check out which are the different makeup looks that women should go for 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.
