Brown Eyed Girl

Brown eyes have the versatility to go with anything! For a subtle look that will bring out those natural brown flecks in your eyes, go with a neutral metallic such as gold or bronze, or even a brown will do the trick. The metallic will bring out the golden tones in your eyes, while the warm colors give your eyes depth. If you want a more extreme and daring look, go with a navy or cobalt blue. The contrast between the blue and the rich dark brown will truly make your eyes pop!

Our favorite eyeshadows for our brown eyed beauties are...

Pixi Mesmerizing Mineral Palette, Rich Gold - $12

L'Oreal Paris Colour Rich Dual Effects Eye Shadow, Absolutely Taupe 250 - $9.99

Green With Envy

Everyone is green with envy over your eyes! Those stunners deserve a shadow that makes live up to their full potential. You also have so many options! For a more neutral look, try a taupe, smokey silver, or a golden color. If you're feeling adventurous, try purple. This complementary color will really make those emerald eyes light up. If you don't want to go for a whole lid of purple shadow, eyeliner is always a fun option.

Behind These Hazel Eyes


You are one of the few lucky people that are blessed with beautiful hazel eyes so use them to your advantage! Hazel is a mix of green and brown so you can rock shades that work with both of those colors. We suggest using golden brown tones that will truly make your eyes pop. Use brown as your base color and a glittering gold to top it off. You can also use creams, greens, or bronze depending on your mood.
