What eyeliner would look best with my brown eyes. My eyes are similar to the second picture in the third column just a little lighter

To make your brown eyes really stand out, wear an eyeshadow (and eyeliner) that’s the opposite of your eye shade on the color spectrum.  Brown eyes should be lined with a brown liner, not black—it’s softer yet still dramatic.


Brown eyes can wear almost any combination of colors.  However, some of the best shades for brown eyes are:

  • cream / eggshell
  • dark brown
  • plum
  • warm gold
  • deep blue
  • forest green
  • deep grey

The shades work for both eyeshadows and eyeliners both.  Urban Decay has many of the colors I mentioned in their 24/7 Eye Liner Pencils which you can find at:  http://sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P133707&categoryId=B70

I hope this helps you. Smiley Happy


To enhance brown eyes, I would go for a deep plum or a shade in the purple family, such as Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes in Shimmering Plum 4L (http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P35082&categoryId=B70), Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Rockstar (dark purple: http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P133707&categoryId=B70) or Buxom Insider Eyeliner in Amethyst: http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P243800&categoryId=B70.


For a fun shade, you could try a vivid blue or teal to offset the brown, such as the UD 24/7 pencil in Flipside.


Good luck! : )

Navy makes brown eyes look great.  It makes your whites look whiter too.  A nice black gel liner is always good on darker eyes.
