  • I'd go with blackest black. With black eyeliner on the top lids. Nothing better than classic!

  • I use a brown/black color. It seems more natural with my dark eyes. Black seems a little too dramatic, but I use it when I get all dolled up to go out.

  • If you want to go with traditional I would say Black...but personally I would try purple (plum) or maybe even a dark blue..I have always been kind of funky though.

    Light skin color, dark eyes and Purple lashes would know what I mean? ESPECIALLY with a shimmery light purple eyeshadow with shimmer (NOT glittery..SHIMMERY) white on the brow line..

  • too much of each though and you would look like a teenager or something though

  • I use black and if I want to be spunky :) I use purple/plum. The purple looks great with brown eyes.

  • I use very black mascara and sometime alitlle (of any color) blue eyeshadow not much just to bring out the brown color of my eyes. You don't want to look to much made up.

  • I use black mascara and tip the end of my lashes with brown to get a mink look. Sometimes I use black mascara and tip the upper corner lashes with a navy blue mascara. It really pops my eyes!
