All about eye - Green

Eyes and eye colouring


How your eye coloured is determined. New research suggests that as many as 16 genes may influence the way colour is expressed in the iris.

The transformation of light particles that land on the iris will impact an eye coloristic appearance. 

Several factors can influence this:

Lighting Time of day Reflective colours – these are the colours around you including clothes Makeup Allergies Emotional State Substances – alcohol, medications etc. These can make our pupils larger or smaller making the colour more intense.

Green eyes - In order to have green eyes a person must have a yellow coloured stroma. The yellowish stroma appears green due to Rayliegh scattering, the principle that makes the sky blue, blue plus yellow equals green. It has been estimated that only 2% of the world’s population has green eyes

Colour matching - Orange, apricot —violet and plum especially—are the best colours to wear when you have green eyes. Keep the colour tones warm—think mauve’s, lilacs and medium pinks. Brown shadows with a bit of gold or bronze look great with green. Avoid cooler blue colours as they can make you green-eyed gals look washed out.
