Question to my makeup junkies!!!! (Eye Shadow color Questions)

What colors go with brown eyes? And with Darn Denim jeans, a nice blue top, black blazer? I have brown hair, olive skin tone. I dont normally dress up but i am this weekend to go out with hubby. The jeans and shirt is from gap not that it matters but its a nice shirt and straight leg jeans that im wearing with black mary janes.

i also dont normally go outside of brown on my eyes. In reality i dont know how to do smokey eyes or anything. If someone could please help, i appreciate it.

  • Oo I love make up questions :) I use to do make up for models on e-harmony .If you have brown eyes and olive skin go for sunset colors, such as a golden brown, and at the crease of your eye just blend in a teal color. blue's and golden browns look nice with an olive skin tone.

  • I have dark brown eyes, and I dust with a little shimmery taupe to the brow, then put a green below that. There are different shades of green I like, from an olive or khaki to a mint color, depending on how much color I want that day. I also use a dark olive liner instead of brown.
