Not so keen on warm-toned greens, of which there are plentiful? There are certainly cooler-toned green eyeshadows to choose from, and here are five of my favorites. When you’re hunting for a cool-toned green, look for buzz words like blue-green, green-blue, forest, green-teal, teal-green, and gray-green; stay away from buzz words like gold, grass, olive, and khaki.
Le Metier de Beaute Jade True Color Eyeshadow ($30.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a medium-dark, muted green with subtle yellow undertones; it’s almost a cool-toned green. Jade has a satin finish, which is described as “a rich, silk-like consistency offering sheer coverage with a subtle sheen.”
The texture is soft and smooth, and the color goes on richly and lays on the skin incredibly nicely. The color is very true-to-pan and doesn’t require any building to achieve opaque color. Being a satin finish, the texture of Jade isn’t quite as buttery as the shadows from the Penelope Kaleidoscope (which is what prompted me to buy three of their single eyeshadows!), but it’s just as easy to apply and blend.
It's an easier way to wear green for those who are not as comfortable with color--it's muted but still very much green. It's also more of a neutral to neutral-cool green, so it should work well across skin tones.
