Seasons

Individuals with blue eyes and brown hair fall into one of two seasons: summer or winter.

The summer season is categorized by light- to medium-brown hair, light blue eyes and a light to medium skin tone. Summers look great in light pastel shades of beige, yellow and ivory as well as pink and lavender.

The winter season is categorized by contrast; someone with dark brown hair, blue eyes and light pale skin is a winter. Olive and dark skin tones are also associated with winter. Winters look best in bold and rich colors like bright white, frosty pastels, burgundy and dark blue.

Makeup

Don't forget the makeup! With blue eyes, you can wear eye shadow throughout the blue color range. As a general rule, it's flattering to wear an eye shadow the same hue as your eye color to bring out its vibrancy. But blue-eyed babes are also notoriously gorgeous with a contrasting smoky eye. Summer brunettes with blue eyes look best in pale pinks, lavender and neutral eye shadow colors, and winter brunettes look good with plum and deep green. However, don't be afraid to go beyond rules and guidelines—look in the mirror and consider your own taste.
