Gold
Olive
like a dark forest green color I like the one above ^
Copper
Pinks
purples
and its good if the eyeshadows has some extra sparkle in them makes our brown eyes stand out more.

i agree with sun goddess 01, i found out that shimmer/pearl/iriscent/sparkle testure work very good because it make brown eyes sparkle plus since im chinese and my lid is kinda big, those texture will make my eye have more dimension

you're welcome :]
I usually like to keep my lids w/ neutral colors or not shadow at all when i use colored liners..so that the attention is on your eyeliner. probably a gold/champagne color w/ green liner. If you're using navy blue liner..shadow colors are pretty much versatile..so anything you please i guess..but i'd keep electric blue liner on its own. perhaps i'm not too wild w/ my makeup:p

i would like to know too if anyone has recommendations on what to pair w/ colored eyeliner. any tips?

Does the shade of the brown eye effect the use of colour too? I found pale shades look better on darker eyes (regardless of shade) somehow... Anyone?

tatika mayb you can try a bold, shimmery sapphire/eletric blue eyeline (more like darkish bright kind one) around ur eye and extend at the outer corner a bit might work for you.

The best thing is to try lots of combinations until you decide what is best for you. I bought tons of lipsticks up to the moment I was sure that I found the ones which suited me...the same with lipliners and all. I have a make up for every ocasion which proves to be Ok and adequate. For example, when I go to a wedding I use red lipstick, when I go to work I use dark pink...
The same with eyeshadows...and liners, I tried all the combinations...you are right about the blue for the brown eyes, it is s difficult to find a good one, for me it is blue navy...

I thought this was a great example of the smokey look for someone with
brown eyes. Doesn't look too made up ( which it often does ) and doesn't
make the eyes appear too small

Tatika, maybe start out with a discrete dark blue, and instead of doing an all over bold blue lid if you're a bit hesitant about blue.. just do eyeliner and a dash of shadown near the lashes ?

maybe MAC's new liquidlast liner in Inky
and Trish McEvoy's eyeshadow in Demin ?

I think brown eyes look good with a lot of different shades.... personally I think grays looks best with brown eyes, brown eyeliner looks too drab on my eyes....
Couldnt have put it anybetter^


Think earth tones and rich colours when it comes to make up. Clothes wise you can get away with anything depending on your hair colour. Personally I suggest never wearing brown mascara or liner because it just looks a bit silly with brown eyes. Use navy,black and grey liners/mascara. I use black and the brown really pops out.
