    What colors will bring out your brown eyes?

    Ok so we've all seen the beautiful blues and greens....

    What makes brown eyes pop?

    I think blues are nice... but greens (yes! greens!) Make my brown eyes just look fantastic and fiery.

    One of my favorite green looks is Golden Lemon (or Deckchair, if you have it) Sprout and Humid.

    ^ Swimming is also a GREAT green for brown eyes. I love using it on mine!

    It's all good!! Hard to remember all those beautiful colors!

    What I like to do for my green eyed look for my brown eyes, is Juxt over the lid, Humid in the inside crease and then Swimming on the outside crease and worked down under the bottom lashline...and I use Tarnish eye kohl

    try some purples and goldish colours :] like perhaps a coppery-gold on the lid and a dark purple in the crease with a lilac-ish highlight.

    I also have dark brown eyes. I use alot of purples! I have olive skin and recently have been playing around with silver purples and cooler icy shades of green, blue and purple and they make my eye pop just like the more intense colors!

    holiday trend pallette is my match right now - the 6 colors in there work better with my eyes than any other colors I have (except Shroom and Trax are love)

  17. #17
    i second the trend pallet, i love it...i use a lot of greens and purples...

    I don't have brown eyes, but I've always loved them with blue shadow. Especially Deep Truth or Electric Eel.

    Besides purples and greens (which totally bring out my brown eyes too) I love golds and silvery grays! I find that silvery (like pewter, even metallic blues) colors work really well with brown eyes rather than whites/frosts, and gold colors totally bring out the warmth of my eyes as well. Whenever I wear golds, my eyes stand out so much while still keeping them warm, and it slides as a neutral look even though they're really shimmery! Also, I fine using dark brown liners instead of blacks work really well too. HTH!

    thanks for the advice I do find that the shimmery colors make my eyes brighter and stand out more. I will sure explore with more colors. I usually dont wear purples. I mostly wear dark browns, black, and dark blue colors. But I will definitely try the greens.

    Does grey eyeliner work for brown eyes?

    Ok, I don't know if anyone can help with this... but do you think that grey eyeliner looks ok on brown eyes? I'm asking because I really like the Lovely Lily look on the mac site, and they are recommending the Grey Utility powerpoint with this look but I've never used grey on my eyes as I didn't think it would be flattering. The only people I've seen wearing grey eyeliner have been fair with blue eyes, I'm pale but with yellow undertones and I've got dark brown eyes. If you have brown eyes, do you or would you ever wear grey on them and how does it look?

    This is the Lovely Lily look, by the way:

    It sounds like we have similar skintone-I'm MAC NC15. I know they say brown eyes can wear any color, but I'm living proof that is not the case! I personally cannot wear grey e/l and definetley not w/ Lovley Lily. With my skintone-I can't do a lot of cool colors at one time and this would be too harsh. I like Lovely Lily with Prunella e/l and pairing it with Twinks e/s. It adds a little warmth-which I need.

    I did that look for the Lingerie event at the counter I was freelancing at...I have brown eyes, and I love the way grey eyeliner looks on me...I did add Flirty Number in the crease because the Lovely Lily looked a little pale on its own...I think it will work on you!

    Thanks, that's what I was thinking... it looks gorgeous on the mac site but lilac & grey together on brown eyes could look horrible in reality! Brown eyes need slightly stronger colours imo. Will stick with my old faithful Prunella instead

    I wear grey eyeshadow a lot, particularly with light lavendars, so I say give it a shot!

    Me too! (I'm NC 15 with brown eyes) Grey Utility e/l and Flirty Number e/s look natural on me. I used to apply Grey Grape e/s (2005 holiday cool palette) as eye liner, but now Grey Utility do the same but more convenient job 8)
