eyes look gorgeous in shades of olive, moss, plum, red-based browns and rust/copper. Use these subtle shades as a monochromatic

wheel) and will create more impact, making green eyes look brighter.

undertone. Do NOT, however, choose any color that looks very orange. The color should look warm versus having a cool look

looks too yellow or orange. These colors will make your teeth look yellow. Stick to neutral/warm tones such as a clear apricot,
brick red, cool peach, etc.
