Be inspired by these brown skinned lovelies:
Anika Noni Rose teams blue eye shadow with a neutral lip. Blue may not be the first colour that comes to mind when thinking of eye shadow, but the darker your skin the more intense the colour you can carry off so it’s a look that’s definitely worth a try.
Sometimes less is more. Keep it neutral and natural like Victoria’s Secret model Chanel Iman.
Metallics are big this season and they aren’t limited to your clothes. Jada Pinkett Smith wears a shimmering silver on her eyes and looks great. Again, keep the rest of the face neutral.
Jennifer Hudson also wears silver but teams hers with a more intense eye liner. With the blunt fringe and the heavy flick on the eyes, she has a Cleopatra type thing going on here.
Really make a statement with a pop of red on the eyes like Joan Smalls at Derek Lam.
The ever perfect Thandie Newton looks stunning with lilac on her light brown eyes.
While in our opinion, Nicole Richie matching her eye colour to her dress makes the lilac look too intense and results in her looking slightly unwell.
Kelis shows how to rock the rainbow look on your eyes.
Mary J shows how to work a classic smoky eye/nude lip combo.
Keri Hilson wears turquoise to accentuate her already beautiful eyes.
Ten looks you can wear, whatever shade of brown you are.
