Choosing the right eyeshadow for your eye color can make or break the image you are trying to create for yourself. While there are always options in terms of application and style, there are a few colors that are generally considered to work with certain eye colors by professional stylists. If you have dark brown eyes, the right shade of eyeshadow can make your eyes stand out, even at a glance.

Blue Tones

Blue-toned eyeshadow is a great way to make your brown eyes stand out if you have fair skin. It is important that your eyeshadow take into account not just the color of your eyes, but your relative skin tone. Use less-intense blues on fairer skin to call attention to your eyes with a bit more subtlety.

Pink Tones

Pink tones are also great with brown eyes, but must be used sparingly depending on the intensity of the color. Once again, lighter, less-intense tones are going to work well for fairer skin, while more intense tones may wash out your skin while working for your eyes.

Burnt Orange

If you’re feeling daring, burnt orange tones will also do a lot to bring your brown eyes to the center of everyone’s attention. Oranges are less common in terms of popular eyeshadow choices but, when used correctly, will accent your brown eyes without drawing all of the attention to the eyeshadow.
