Green is associated with nature, energy, renewal, freshness and more. A green dress is always lively, daring, elegant and a must-have in one’s wardrobe. Besides this, the colour offers you endless options, various shades to choose from and is also super complimentary for most skin tones. However, picking a green outfit is easy, but finalizing makeup for a green dress is not! Be it a deep dark green shade or a lovely sea green attire, we have an easy makeup idea for almost every green dress you own.
• Makeup for a light green dress
Lighter shades of green call for a high-end drama! To style yourself pretty, go for bold eye makeup. Remember, nothing speaks boldly like smokey eyes. Create a smokey eye look and take your eye makeup for green dress up a notch by adding some shimmer on it. Apply mascara to add volume to your eyelashes. Opt for soft pink tones of blush such as peach or rose and turn on the glam quotient by highlighting your cheeks lightly. Finish off your face makeup with brown lipstick and accessorize your look with earrings.

Sea green is a gorgeous colour that is perfect for making the ultimate party statement. Pairing your makeup with a sea-green dress is not as difficult as it looks. We recommend that you choose one facial feature to focus on and look the best from the rest. If you plan to experiment with your eye makeup, here’s what you can do. Start by shaping your eyebrows. Once that is done, apply a golden eyeshadow to highlight your upper lid and define your eyes with a kajal. Add a hint of colour to your face makeup with a rose blush. Complete your green dress makeup look with coral lipstick.

• Makeup for a dark green dress
While wearing a dark green dress, it is essential to balance your makeup with a few lighter elements to prevent it from making you look gaudy. A curated set of products can help you get the perfect makeup for a dark green dress. To style this super trendy colour and complement the dark tones of your green dress, create a cut crease look. You can do so by using a brown eyeshadow on your crease and follow it with a brightening concealer across your eyelid. To get the perfect concealer shade, use the Maybelline Foundation Finder tool and go a shade or two lighter to achieve the desired look. Give your cheeks a naturally flushed look by applying a pink blush. Enhance your lips with bright red lipstick, which will offer you a gorgeous contrast against the dress.
