Best Colors for Each Eye Color:

Greens, champagnes, bronzes, gold’s, browns and blues are just some of the shades that play beautifully with brown eyes. You can also try shades of beige, peach, corals, copper, pinks, pale purples (pinky purples) and browns. Brown eyes also look great in grey, plums as well as burnt oranges. The intensity of color you wear depends on your skin tone. The lighter the skin tone, the less intense color you would use. The same rule applies to darker skin tones.

Try a “ browny orange “ Also, taupe, gray, violet, purple, deep blue, silver. To emphasize blue eyes use brown and rose shadows. Warm hues will contrast the coldness of blue eyes, making them really pop. Don't go for aqua or cerulean shades that will compete with your blue color. Go with a very different-colored shadow for an eye-opening contrast.

Pimento brown – this contains a subtle red undertone that is cooled & tamed by the dominating brown. Many women with green eyes have fair skin and freckles. If you have a light complexion, try to avoid eye shadow that is too deep or shimmery. However, some women with green eyes have olive skin. These women should avoid silver and blue shadows. All women with green eyes look great in brown colors from light beiges to deep chocolate browns. Purples and pinks also complement with green eyes. Some people will suggest that you shouldn't wear green shadow if you have green eyes. However, light green can be very flattering when applied sparingly.

Go toward more neutral colors such as brown. Gold, pink, lavender, plum, khaki and mocha are great ones too. Purple shades contrast your color, making eyes look dramatic. Warmer shades of mocha complement the green hue in hazel eyes, giving a natural effect. Soft pink is another good color. It is irresistible for a romantic look. Another great, vibrant color to use is a teal hue.
