Brown Eyed!










Yep!
Today I'm trying how it is to go through life with brown eyes!
Must say the whole appearance changes with such a tiny detail as the colour of the eyes.
I'm wearing dark brown lenses, so it was hard to take pictures of the eyes where my natural eye colour doesn't show, so please be kind to me if it looks like I have a fish eye!
Another reason I did this was because we got a question from Amygash! of what works best with brown eyes.
And my first thought was blue, hence the look. I blended some gold and brown into the blue to get a suitable look for daywear, but you can go all the way with the blue too.
But when it comes to make up I think it's very important not to get stuck in do or don'ts colours because that is so obstructive. When I do my looks I go for the mood I'm in, if all I can think of is purple, then purple it is!
And the times I don't follow my mood, the look often turns out to be something I loathe.

List of products:
Primer - Lime Crime Candy Eyed Eye Shadow Helper
Shadows - The Legends Collection in Triforce, Epona & Likelike by Shiro Cosmetics. Noir, Obnoxious & Gullible from The Bad Girl Palette by Sleek. Loose Eyeshadow Starling from SugarPill
Eyeliner - S.O.P.H.I.E Pencil by Illamasqua
Mascara - Phenomen'Eyes Black by Givenchy
Eyebrow - Le Crayon Eyekohl Bronze from Lancome


Over and out!

socialitedreams said...

you look gorgeous with brown eyes :) I find that most makeup colors look good with brown eyes: green, blues, purples, golds....they all light up brown tones, just like brown skin.

This is so pretty! Gorgeous and soft ♥

Also, I wanted to let you know that I am using one of your lip swatches for a Pop art project for my Art 4 class :D I am really excited for it and I hope you will be too!

P.s. You have amazing lip swatches, WHY do they have zero comments! That needs to change! ♥

I love how your natural eye color shows thru in the center! Makes your eyes look so interesting! Great blue makeup to go with the brown eyes!

I R-E-A-L-L-Y liked this makeup.
Thank you!

I think brown eyes are so awesome because they can carry any bright-ass color in the blue-green family. Teal I find to be of the uppermost awesomness for brown eyes.

However, this exact navy blue looks pretty on all eyes that have a touch of yellow/warmth, including mine :D
Proves what you are saying about rules being to restrictive.

Feel the make-up, don't think it.

Lisanne said...

These lenses are very beautiful and I think you created a great look to go along with it. I think purple and green works very nice with brown eyes too but I agree with you: don't let your choice depend on "the rules" but do as you please. Makeup should be fun :D

TheArtIsMakeup said...

I love this! the lenses are gorgeous and you made a gorgeous look, so nicely blended as well! :D <3

Desert Rose said...

Will have to try and recreate this since I already see how it looks on dark brown eyes, lol! Totally agree with you, I always pick shades according to my mood, that's why I have a rainbow on my make up stash :P

Antonia-Ivana said...

Can't believe it. You're wearing brown contacts whereas I'd like to have light eyes like you have originally haha. You created a great look.

Kaki @ GlitterObsession said...

Great look - thanks for doing a look for us brown eyed gals! I love the blue.

olgiepolgie said...

I love this look! Hooray for brown eyes. I think this would look awesome with any eye colour.

Vulcan_Butterfly said...

Neat post! It's fun to see how things would look with a different eye colour than you usually have!

Pearl Squirrel said...

This doesn't look like your eyes at all!

It's a very nice look for brown eyes, but like you said, do's and don'ts aren't always a good guideline. I think your natural eyecolor works amazing with blue as well, although people used to say it was not done with blue eyes :)
