Eyeshadow Colors

I have dark brown eyes with olivy tan skin.  What would be the best eyeshadow colors for my dark brown, Chinese eyes?

Re: Eyeshadow Colors

I do professional wedding makeup and always gravitate towards Mauves and pinks for your eye and skin color. It really makes them pop!

Hi @EmmaSue17!


I love to use colors that go with my outfit or accessories.  I just took a 1-on-1 consultation with HUDA's MUA and that was one of the tips he gave me.


Honestly, you can use whatever colors you want!  That's the beauty of makeup and experimenting.  You could look up JeamKin on Instagram for Asian monolid looks.  She has a lot of great eyeshadow looks.


Bronze, gold, brown is kind of a universal color theme that goes for any skin tone.

Re: Eyeshadow Colors

Thanks for the Instagram recommendation!  I'll definitely check it out!

Re: Eyeshadow Colors

@EmmaSue17 Brown eyes can use almost every color on the color wheel.  To make your eyes pop you can use green, purple, gold, bronze colors.

Re: Eyeshadow Colors

Thanks.  What about pinks?  Are there any eyeshadow palletes or liquid eyeshadows that you would recommend?
