I have brown eyes and I wear eye shadow in every color....

The problem is not your eye color because brown doesn't go clashing with the eye shadow colors,the problem is the hues of the shadow.

You gotta find the hue of shadow for you. Like for a light skin girl can pull a apple green but a darker skinned girl can't, but she can pull off a rich glimmery forest green. So skintone plays a bigger part in pulling off a color

It's all into finding the right shade of a color.


If you have no idea how to pick....When you are at a make-up store like M.A.C. or Sephora, or a dept store counter. Tell them a color you like, but ask them to help you find the right shade for you. BE SURE TO BE SPECIFIC IN WHAT YOU LIKE..They know their stuff,but if you give them free rein sometimes they go funky on you.

Any plumbs or purples, as well as greens. Those will make your eyes pop. Also if you line the inside rim of your eye with white eyeliner it will really make them pop!

never 'think' a certain look won't look as great on you just because you have brown eyes. you never know until you've tried it.
thinking like that will only restrict your options and ideas.

Brown eyes are my favorite to do makeup on!! You can do so many different things. Brown eyes can wear just about any color. I especially love Turquoises, Greens (in any shade), Purples and Bronze shades on brown eyes.

I have light brown/brown eyes, and I agree - it's really more to do with skin tone and application/placement rather than eye colour...

I generally wear dark brown/bronze, bronze, plum/burgundy, forest green for definition, but I can wear pastel colours, if correctly applied to certain parts of the eye...I also wear deep, shimmery blues, turquoise, green (in all shades), purple (again, in all shades), browns (in all shades), etc. I love having brown eyes - there's so much you can do with them.

I agree... there's so much you can do with brown eyes than having lighter colored eyes. Browns can wear just about anything

Burgundy, lilacs, goldens and forest green look fabulous with brown eyes.
Brown is the easiest colour to match.

mate brown colours sometimes look very dull with brown eyes, but there aren´t particular colours to avoid.
