i have light brown eyes..i can wear black, brown, green..pretty much any color but like blue and metallic silver yuck! i like that w/brown eyes you can wear lots of eyeliner and it doesnt look too harsh as it would w/blue eyes. lately ive been wearing alot of gold shimmery stuff (benefit showoffs). it looks good w/a tan!

I am a pale blonde with brown eyes and I feel if I wear white eyeshadow( of highlighter to near the eye ) it makes me look like a doll or an alien.

Champagne and coffee colours are always great. As well as green and grey.
Pink too.

I have dark brown eyes (almost black), light olive skin, and black hair. All I use is a bit of black liner on my top lid and a very thin line on the outer corner of my bottom lid. Then, I highlight my brow bone with a light beige shadow (about a shade lighter than my natural skin) and add mascara to my lashes. A lot of people with very dark eyes seem to shy away from black eyeliner, but I think it can look nice and subtle, yet still sexy. I guess it's all in the application technique...

To answer Vans question.. I, personally, think that very dark brown eyes should avoid pastel colors. For medium and light brown it really depends on the skin color. Dark and olive skins look better with richer colors, imo, and lighter skin doesn't work as well with very dark shades.

This isn't a makeup related question but it is about brown eyes. I often wonder outside of those who have brown eyes, do others find them attractive. I remember when I was a kid, I thought brown eyes were so boring and I either wanted blue eyes ( I guess cause in society they make such a big deal about them. So do others get the appeal of brown eyes?

This is an old thread ... but just what I needed I always used to wear only black eyeliner but recently I've gone crazy and sprung for cafe, creme, blue, white colors and I'm still searching for right lilac and plum colors especially after reading this thread..
jjbunny you can go through this thread about eye colors such as the ones I listed since I also have a similar complexion to you but I am Lebanese not Chinese. As for cheeks, I use a bronze blush usually or sometimes a pinkish tint looks cute depending on the outfit you're wearing! I like to wear almost clear lip gloss on my lips with maybe a hint of peach in it.. for some reason pink doesn't look very good on me But the right shade of red lipstick is amazing on brunettes!
As for people finding girls with brown eyes attractive, i guess it depends on the person.. I know lots of songs all about that girl with the brown eyes haha - I used to like guys with colored eyes for instance but now I prefer brown or darker eyes probably because it seems we would match more if that makes sense

purple and green are good if you want a pop of color
grey eyeliner for natural daytime looks and black liner for night
gold/bronze/champagne/pinks are good neutral colors for eyeshadow
I had a Lancome makeup consultation a few weeks ago and the makeup artist used bronze liner and shadow on me and it looked amazing!
she also said that brown is NOT a good color pick because matching your eye color makes your eyes look drab.
pink shadows are good but I think it depends on your skintone for which pinks to use..or else you might end up looking like you have an eye infection:p

I don't know what shades you usually use but the only mac shades I have are Trax (a plummy color w/ gold flecks) and Shale (smokey grey purple w/ shimmer) and for greens-->greensmoke (green w/ gold shimmer)...I tend to use cheaper shadows for neutral colors (Jane eyezings)

I just noticed my mac shadows all have gold shimmer...but I guess that's ok because gold is perfect w/ brown!

hope that helped you a bit!

You're welcome jjbunny

gsquared thank u for all those tips the colors sound great!! What kind of eye shadow would u use with blue or green eyeliner? U know colored eyeliners in general..

I am obsessed with this new color combination at Bourjois do u guys think they would suit brown eyes? There's a page with a description of the colors used so I could get them if they'd look good on me..

I have brown eyes and I use plum, grey, green, dark blue eyeshadows and pencils in the same colour. I have been using black for a long time , but now it seems to me, that black pencil makes me look older. I rarely use brown eyeshadows.
Anyway most of the time I skip eyeshadow I only use pencil that blends very nicely in the skin and it looks very natural, black mascara and I like to use eyebrows pencil because it makes my eyes look very strong.

Why don't you girls post pictures of yourself with different make up for brown eyes so that we can all learn?
