Using the same glittering sage shadow on four models with different skin tones, Shiseido Artistic Director Dick Page shows that anyone can go green.
On all models: Shiseido Luminizing Satin Eye Color in GR712, $25.
When working with bold shadow shades, apply eye makeup first. "Bright color against a fully finished face can look overwhelming," Shiseido Aristic Director Dick Page says. "You might find that after you do your eyes, you don't need anything more than tinted moisturizer on the rest of the face."
"I call this shade kombu, because it's a dark seaweed green with a bit of blue, gold, and even silver to it. On darker, warmer skin tones, this color reads more blue. Here, I applied it with a damp brush along the lashline and blended it until the shadow dried and diffused." - Dick Page

"ON FAIRER, PINKISH SKIN TONES, THIS SHADOW BECOMES ALMOST BLACK. I LET THE BRUSH FOLLOW THE NATURAL CONTOUR OF THE EYES AND EXTENDED IT A LITTLE ON THE OUTSIDE INTO A CAT EYE. I PUT A BIT OF HIGHLIGHT ON THE INNER CORNERS TO GIVE THE COLOR MORE INTENSITY." - DICK PAGE

"YELLOW-BASED SKIN TONES BRING OUT THE GOLD IN THE GREEN. WITH ASIAN LIDS, YOU HAVE TO DRAW A THICKER SHADOW LINE SO THAT YOU CAN SEE THE COLOR WHEN THE EYE IS OPEN. I TRACED AROUND THE KOMBU TONE WITH A LIGHTER, GRASSY SHADE TO MAKE IT LOOK MORE VIBRANT." - DICK PAGE

"Darker skin absorbs color, so you can use brighter shades. For tawny skin with a red undertone, a matte yellow shadow swept across the eyelid works as a highlighter and offsets the green shadow's pearly shimmer." - Dick Page
