This one’s for you, my brown-eyed girls! And we won’t even be needing a transistor radio, just our trusty color wheel.
As you’ve read in the guides for blue eyes and green eyes, eye color can be emphasized by eyeshadow in complementary or monochromatic shade palettes.
For brown-eyed girls, this means you should apply eye makeup in teals, blues, purples, and pinks in addition to neutrals like chocolates, bronzes, coppers, and taupes. So get over your aversion to color for fear of looking clownish or your distaste for neutrals for fear of looking blah, because both can look incredible—and when applied properly, perfectly pop those brown peepers.
