Play Up Your Peepers
If shopping for eye makeup is one big guessing game, find your best colors here.
Complementary eye makeup colors—the colors that are opposite your eye color on the color wheel—will make your brown eye color look most vivid. When considering your best colors related to your skintone, stick with shadows and liners that also have warm undertones (like your skin). These colors won’t have any cool gray or “iciness” in them, but will lean more towards a sunny look, or have hints of gold in them.
