If you have brown hair and blue eyes like me, you’re probably aware that it is quite difficult to find colors suiting your complexion with your dark hair but light eyes. Here are some clothing colors and makeup ideas made for you!
- Any shade of blue! Blue eyeshadow, blue clothing, whatever it is, it’s great for you. The blue will really bring out your eyes no matter what your hair color is.
- Black. This color is a staple for everyone. The best shade for brown-haired blue-eyed girls would be a very dark shade, maybe even a jet-black. However, keep in mind; if you are pale, dark colors could possibly wash you out. So be careful with this, and any other dark colors.
- White! Just like black, this color is a staple for everyone. This color basically suits anyone and everyone.
- Lime green. It’s such a fun color and will contrast well with your eyes and also bring out the darkness in your hair.
- A pinkish purple color would also work well for anyone with brown hair and blue eyes.
- Purple! Along with the pinkish purple, any other shade of purple would be great as well.
- Peach is such a pretty color and is a great neutral for dark hair and light eyes.
- Grey makes blue eyes a lot more electrifying as it’s paired against a dark color makeup/outfit and darker colored hair.
- Tan. Wear lighter shades if you are pale and darker shades if you aren’t. Just be careful that it doesn’t match your skin exactly!
- Brown is another great color, but especially for your hair. The contrast between your hair and makeup/outfit looks absolutely breathtaking!
Below are 2 makeup tutorials suited for you. The first one I’m going to show you is an every day look.
These are the products I used for the look. I used Bareminerals Original Foundation in the color light, the Urban Decay Naked palette (I used the color Naked), Covergirl’s LashBlast Mascara in Very Black, Lancome Paris Effacernes Waterproof Concealer in Medium Bisque, Duplicity eyeliner in Warm Brown from Avon, and True Color blush in Mad About Mauve from Avon.
Start off by applying your foundation and concealer. I apply my concealer by patting it under neath of my eye with my ring finger. For my foundation, I used a powder brush and sweeped it across any places needing coverage.
Next, prime your eyes and then apply a neutral beige eyeshadow with a fluffy brush all over your lid. I used Naked from the Urban Decay Naked Palette, however any beige will do. After this, apply brown or black mascara.
Next, find a peach or berry blush just a little darker than your skin tone. Or instead of wearing blush, a bronzer would work as well. Just make sure you avoid any colors that are too pink.
The next look I have is a going out look.
For this look, I used the same foundation, concealer, and blush I used for my everyday look. I also used Urban Decay’s Naked 2 palette (more specifically, the color Pistol), NYC Smooth Skin Bronzing Face Powder in the color Sunny, L’Oreal Lacquer Liner in Blackest Black, and Nars lipgloss in Misbehave.
Begin this look by once again applying your foundation and concealer.
Before applying eyeshadow, make sure to prime your eyes. For eyeshadow, a grey shade creates the perfect amount of smoke for this look. Try to find a shade suited for your skin tone. Lighter skin shades should use a lighter shade of grey. Darker skin tones should use a darker shade of grey. Once you apply your eyeshadow, apply a jet black eyeliner on top of this to make it even smokier.
For blush, do the same as you did for your everyday look. Stick to peaches and berry colors. I definitely recommend a mauve shade like Avon’s Mad About Mauve! It’s a deep color, but suits my hair color well and doesn’t wash me out. But any tan, purple, or red tones will do.
Next for your lips, go bold with your choice of red lipstick or lipgloss. If your eyes are already very bold, you may want to stick to a gloss. Choose which feature you want to stand out and that is the feature you should highlight more. Just a tinge of color on either your eyes or lips would work with the other bold feature. Don’t go overboard.
To finish this look, sweep bronzer all over your face. This step is totally optional. You can also add mascara.
Side note: Keep in mind that you can make this look more or less dramatic.
