  • I also have dark brown hair, olive skin tone, and brown eyes. I wear a lot of natural brown colors. I have found that purple looks nice on me as well as greens. As far as lip colors, I tend to wear a nude color gloss. Red never looks nice on me lip wise. Just play with your make up to figure out what you enjoy most on you.

  • I have the same coloring as you and I have a terrible time finding lipstick. I use clinique's lip color called delovely. As for eyeshadow, I love bare mineral's and I like the gold and brown shades
