We love hearing from our panel of beauty pros about the latest and greatest beauty tricks. Today, we're lucky enough to hear from Los Angeles-based makeup pro Emily Oliver on the perfect brown eye shadow shades for your skin tone.

Best Brown Eye Shadow

When it comes to brown eye shadow, the goal is to complement your skin tone, and not compete against its natural beauty.  Most skin tones, whether they are light, medium or dark, fall into three separate undertone categories (but are not limited to): neutral or beige, pink/red, and golden or olive. It is these undertones that determine which color of brown eye shadow I use to keep my models and clients looking their best!
