20 Eyeshadow Color Combos for May


The Colors of Emerald: 20 Eyeshadow Color Combos for May

May’s birthstone is emerald, which is a rich green that is often categorized by depth and its undertone, so emeralds can range from lighter and brighter (almost translucent and neon) green to deep, almost blackish green. The spectrum ranges from yellower green to bluish green, so it can appear like a jade green when it’s lighter and warmer to almost a bluish-teal when the blue tones are at their strongest.

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. I know that I tend to use more like five or six shades in a typical look, but I think that four is a happy medium to give a good idea of the “core” color scheme of a look while giving you the ability to lighten/darken as desired. I have listed the colors in this order: inner lid, middle of lid, outer lid/crease, and crease/above crease or lid.

You might see combinations that seem slightly repeated but placement will vary (e.g. a halo placement where the lightest and more shimmery shade is placed on the center) as placement can also create a different effect/look! You might also want to consider incorporating your favorite matte/shimmer shades (as applicable) to increase the versatility of certain palettes. Consider these ideas a jumping off point!
