I found this article, The Top 4 Makeup Tips for Brown Eyes in http://www.magforwomen.com/ many months ago and just had to share it with you. I’ve condensed it and added some of my own knowledge (in brackets) but the message is still there. Love those brown eyes!!!
“The best part about brown eyes is that they look naturally deep because of the depth of this color. Brown is a color that constitutes three colors i.e. blue, red and yellow. Therefore you can wear many eye colors and always look good.
Metallic eye shadow colors
Since brown eyes are already deep, metallic colors can do wonders for your eyes. Shades of gold, silver, bronze, brown, and even pink can help enhance your eyes. Such shades will not overpower the natural beauty of them. These colors are perfect for parties and evening events. You can also use contrasting whites and beiges for highlighting effects.
Neutral eye shadow colors
Going to work or just for a brunch, you can play around with some nude or natural shades. Colors such as beige, peach, brown and taupe are perfect for creating a subtle and elegant look. You can use contrasting eyeliners like dark browns and blacks to create the intensity desired.
Deep eye shadow colors
Shades of brown, purple, plum, gray, vanilla, mahogany and similar colors are just like an icing on the cake for deep brown eyes. They will accent your eyes so beautifully and give your eyes a special sparkle. The smoky eye look, using shades of black and grays can also do wonders to give drama and depth to your eyes.
Eyeliners are great for brown eyes because they give the right detail and enhancement. Go for darker shades such as brown, black and even dark gray. These shades will add a touch of prominence. While wearing fresh and bright colors, you can also opt for liners in [med. dark] blue and [dark mauve] pink. [Save lighter hot colors for accent on the inner and inside outer corners.]
The above tips, if applied in the right areas, along with the application of [a curling wand and] mascara will make your eyes stand out anytime of day.” Go for it!
