Would You Wear Alicia Keys's Green Eyeshadow?

We often color-coordinate our bags and shoes — sometimes, we even throw in a matching belt. Alicia Keys took that idea a step further and matched her shimmering eyeshadow to her kelly green dress. We think Alicia always looks gorgeous, but this look may have taken the whole matchy-matchy thing a little too far for our taste. Tell us: Would you match your eye makeup to your outfit? Do you do it on a regular basis?

Only if I were as beautiful as she is …… Alicia can wear any color of eye shadow.

I would…..if I were Alicia Keys. Why can’t we all just b as pretty as her :(. Needless 2 say, I think she can rock any color!

As beautiful as she is, matching your eyeshadow to your outfit is always a mistake. Wearing a contrasting tone would have made her eyes pop. The green washes her out when paired with her dress.

nOt EverYone hAs to fOllow toDays Trends. Who cares about matching your belt all the time….TRY SOMETHING DIFFERENT!!!! I love the way ALICIA matches her eyeshdow. She looks beautiful.

I did that in grade school when I was first learning how to wear make up. I think I’d feel silly doing it now.

Candice C 16 on

definately especially if it matched perfectly

Rebecca on

No, I wouldn’t match my eyesdhadow to my outfit. It looks a little “grade school” and I don’t think it does anything for the always-beautiful Alicia Keys!

Dena on

I think she is a beautiful person so she can get away with it. I wouldn’t do it because 1) I have green eyes and 2) I would look like an idiot regardless.

Horse Girl on

I think natural is better. She still looks beautiful, but you should never match the color of your eyeshadow with your clothes.

Mary on

She looks stunning!

Kristi L. on

No doubt would I wear green eye shadow, but only if I was wearing green. I think it is a great accent, she doesn’t over do it.

laura on

it looks fine but i would have started yellow at the bottom and blend in some different shades of greens, nothing crazy just simple.

First of all I want to say Alicia looks BEAUTIFUL in this picture. I’d like for all these people saying she looks like an idiot to post their pictures so we can really take a good look at your simple lil faces! Im sure all you have in your make up cases is brown and gray eyeshadow for the “natural” just got out of bed look, right? Live a little and look good doing it. Miss Keys sure is!

Vonnie on

I love colored shadows, always have on a funky color, but I don’t try and match my shirt and she’s been doing that alot lately. Not sure if I like the matchy colors
