What shades of eye shadow should I use on brown eyes?

Give Life to Brown Eyes

Whether your brown eyes are the color of fine grains of sand or deep mahogany, it takes certain hues to emphasize them. To draw attention to brown eyes try blue tones; these shades will accentuate the various shades of brown eyes. Try not to buy shades that look like something you had in the 80's! Lighter shades give better results. Darker shades should be used in the crease of the eye and blended outward. Shadows that display shimmery textures work best. To apply, start from the lash lines and blend up to the brow bones. Use a light color under browbone as a highlighter. Use a navy eyeliner to pop brown eyes and black mascara. Looks great every time.
