I have often found myself envious of those with green and blue eyes, even hazel-because of how fun it is to 'bring them out' with colors of makeup or clothing. It's not that I dislike having brown eyes...but...they're kind of boring. It probably doesn't help that my best friend of fifteen years has literally electric blue eyes, so when we started using makeup together in middle school, her eyes got bluer and bluer looking and mine got....well...they were just brown.
Through the years I've kind of figured out that purple eye makeup looks pretty good with brown eyes, and I use that from time to time, but one day I read something in a fashion mag (don't remember which one) that completely changed how I put on eye makeup forever.....that blue is actually the color of eye makeup that really brings out brown eyes. I have blogged before about how I occasionally use a swipe of midnight blue eyeliner to make my eyes pop, but today I decided to try something a little more daring...bright blue eyeshadow.
I...loved it!! But here are a few tips, in case you want to try it...
Keep your lips bare or just use chapstick (I have Burt's Bees on in this pic). Do not use blush!! Use bronzer instead.
