Eye Makeup: Brown Eyes; Medium, Warm Skin; Dark Hair


1Boots No7 Stay Perfect Eyeliner in Sapphire, $8.99.


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.

The metallic glint of this bright blue liner is sure to draw your eyes wanted attention.
