With St. Patrick’s Day this week, I wanted to share my top green MAC eyeshadows. Out of my collection, I chose these particular three for their color, finish, and pigmentation.
My Top Green MAC Eyeshadows
Here are my favorites (luckily, they are all part of MAC’s permanent collection!):
- Greensmoke – A cooler green with a sparkle finish.
- Sumptuous Olive – A warm, almost golden green with a pearl finish.
- Humid – A warmer green with a frost finish.
Starting with Greensmoke and Sumptuous Olive, I think these shades are really great for everyday looks. The green in them is subtle enough to make them office friendly, and they pair nicely with brown and taupe eyeshadows since they are both more muted and contain golden/brown tones.
For those more daring, or for a night out, Humid is the way to go. As you can see in the swatches below, the Humid eyeshadow is the deepest, most vibrant green shade. It pairs especially well with yellow eyeshadows since it has that slight yellow/golden sheen mixed in.
I found Humid (frost) and Sumptuous Olive (Veluxe Pearl) to be exceptionally easy to apply. Greensmoke on the other hand, being a luster finish, takes a little more time to build up. I’d recommend using a densely-packed flat shader brush to pick up the product from the pan and pack in on the lid. But despite that, once on the eye, it comes out as my #1 favorite out of the three (check out my post on Greensmoke here if you’re interested in seeing it applied).
What’s your favorite green MAC eyeshadow (or non-MAC!)?
