The Colors of Peridot & Spinel: 20 Eyeshadow Color Combos for August

August birthstones include peridot, which is a more yellow-toned based green (ranging from lighter chartreuse to olive green) and spinel, which comes in a greater variety of shades but tends to be more popular in red, pink, purple, and blue, though orange, violet, and bluish-green spinels can be found.

About This Series

Each look idea is centered around a “quad” of four shades with the expectation that one might bring in the appropriate brow bone or additional transitional shade based on skin tone. Consider these ideas a jumping off point with four “core” colors that can inspire your next look. For reference, based on how I usually apply makeup, I would consider applying the shades in this order: inner lid, middle of lid, outer lid/crease, and crease/above crease or lid.

Oh gosh Christine, so many greens! I needed these swatches today! I want to put my own camo palette, similar to KKW CAMO palette 😊
