  • The neutral/brown eye shadow blends with the brown of the eyes and looks subtle. This could be preferred for a day time, office look.
  • Silver or blue shades on the lower lash line can make any dark circles stand out. Hence, using a  primer and concealer are very important
  • Metallic colors like gold, bronze and copper blend in with the naturally earth toned eyes and make them stand out.
  • Alternatively, a matte color can be used, and the corners of the eye can be highlighted with golden or bronze highlights.
  • You can also team up your eye shadow with plum eyeliner instead of a black or brown liner to make them enhance them and make them really standout.
  • Cobalt blue goes amazingly well with brown eyes. Irrespective of whether you have hazel or dark brown eyes, this striking color goes for a fun night out.
  • Try: a neutral brown eye shadow as base, and striking green, blue or purple highlights on the upper lid. Apply mascara generously.
