People with green eyes always find it a bit difficult to experiment with eye make-up fearing that it might end up ruining their facial appearance.

Here is a step by step guide on how to apply eyeshadow for green eyes.
How to apply Eyeshadow for Green Eyes: 5 Easy Steps.
Apply an eye primer from the browbone to the lash line. Once it is absorbed, apply an eye shadow base. Basically, the base and the primer help the eyeshadow to last longer and appear more vivid on your face.
After applying the base and the primer, look for the eyeshadow color that complements your skin color. There are usually different shades of green that you can try out. For instance, a purple eyeshadow with abit of bronze or brown works perfectly well in drawing attention to your eyes. On the other hand you can apply a violet eyeshadow with a slight touch of pink to bring a goldish tint on your green eyes. Always go for a highly pigmented eyeshadow formula especially while using colors that pop.
Apply a plumy (or mid-violet) eyeshadow of your choice around your eyes ensuring that no skin is left uncovered in between your lashes and the eyeshadow. It is always advisable to use a heavier hand while doing this for some artistic touch. Also, always ensure that you smooth out any hard edges using a domed eyeshadow brush.
After applying a darker version (of your eyeshadow) in the previous step, you now need to add some depth using a crease brush. Use a highlight shadow especially on the inner eye corners, under the eyebrow arches and on the brown bones. This will essentially add texture and draw the light to your eyes.
Lastly, to keep your eyes from looking unstructured, work a creamy eyeliner onto the lashlines base so as to highlight the shape of your eyes. Neutral shades usually don’t detract much attention from your green eyes. Basically, during this last step, you should not really focus on lining up your eyes; instead you should concentrate on making your lashes appear thicker. Ideally it is better to apply the eyeliner on your top lashlines only but you can as well apply on your bottom lashlines for a sultry look.
