For Brown Eyes by Hed-y For Brown Eyes by Hed-y
make up by me, model: me

violet and green: these vibrant colours emphasize the brown of the eye, the black makes a nice foil
i didn't use blue, because that makes the brown eye into... bulk rate (is it the good word??)

I'm so in awe of how lovely this look is! I'm also fascinated by the fact that your eyes are almost the same color as mine.
I love seeing make-up like this, but I feel like most of the time, if I'm doing my make-up at all, the situation just isn't appropriate--maybe it's a self-confidence thing.
It also gets so expensive! Do you have recommendations for good-quality make-up that's still reasonably inexpensive?

Thank you! I don't use expensive brands, so I can recommend these: essence, manhattan, oriflame, nyx, alverde, sleek, avon.

I have hazel eyes, so I was wondering if the brown eye or the green eye look would go better for me.

Sorry if I'm dropping in, but I thought I'd throw in my two cents (even if this comment is 2 months old, heh)

I would suggest looking into Sugarpill eyeshadows: www.sugarpill.net Their eyeshadows are amazing, especially their purple eyeshadow called Poison Plum. Their mattes are INSANELY pigmented as well! Considering they are comparable to eyeshadows from higher-end brands that are $20+, I'd say these are a great deal. Hopefully that helps :)

Thank you, I'll check it out. I actually an e.l.f. fan but their eyeshadows aren't as intense and pigmented as this.

Lovely shade.
And yes it is hard, I also havent found the perfect red or orange yet or a baby/light blue that doesn't look green-ish in warm skin tones.

This is really pretty. Good job :) What colours would you recommend for green eyes? Well, like hazel green (olive)...

thank you! i will do the look for green eyes tomorrow :) you know it's strange because i don't recommend the blue color for blue eyes, the brown for the brown eyes and so on, but the green eyeshadow is really beautiful for the green, or hazel green eyed people (but if you use a strong green shade, your eyecolor will look a bit greyish). the violet, purple, blue, or black is also really good and pink/rose color too. so if you have green/olive eyes, you're lucky :)

Awesome, I look forward to seeing it :D
I know what you mean though. I once had a nice green colour that really made my eyes pop. But I can't remember what it was anymore. All the greens I have now just make my eyes look brown/grey :(
Thanks for the help :hug:

my best friend has green eyes and when i made her make up with an avon double eyeshadow, her eyes just looked beautiful! in the eyeshadow there was a dark and a very-very light green shade. you know, if you really want to place emphasize on the green of your eyes then try out a red eyeshadow... but that could be a "bit" dramatic :D
my pleasure to help :)

Dramatic is good for certain occassions though, so it could work. I do dramatic for nighttime outings pretty often :P I'll try red, thanks a lot! :hug:

okay! :meow: i think the violet and green will be good on your skin :) but why don't you wear mascara? it's almost the most important part of the make up, i think. it makes your eyes look so much more beautiful
