Can you have brown skin and blue eyes naturally?

I know this doesnt belong in the make-up questions but i didnt know where else to put it...

Can you naturally have those two combinations? Like, Born with them?

    Yes, due to the fact that here are many shades of brown. Blue is a recessive genetic trait anyway so if someone in your family on either side way way way back has blue eyes and that trait was passed on to your parent then you can have green eyes. That would also me one of your parents or someone would have to have some shade of brown skin.

    Yes, it is absolutely possible through the fun and magic of genetics. In the small town I grew up in, there was a whole family of dark skinned folks with the loveliest blue eyes...before colored contacts really existed.

    You just never know when a random gene from a relative 8 generations ago will leap out of the gene pool and into a person.

    Yes. It is very beautiful. Brown skin with silver/greyish, too. I've seen it with my own brown eyes. Usually there is another nationality involved in the bloodline but yes you can have brown skin and blue eyes.

    Rare and gorgeous. As for the comment above - you don't need two blue eyed parents to have a blue eyed child. My oldest daughter has blue eyes and my ex and I have brown eyes. There are other family members that have blue eyes on both sides, that's all. My youngest daughter with my new husband has bright, bright blue eyes. I have brown and my husband has light green.

    Blue eyes are very rare. You need 2 persons with blue eyes to make a blue-eyed baby... its genetics. Anyways, the majority of people with darker skin also have darker eye color. To get darker skin in a child, you'd need a parent of darker skin... to get blue eyes, you'd need 2 parents with blue eyes, although even then the baby might not have blue eyes. I believe it IS possible... just VERY rare.

    I'm a light skinned African American and I have natural green eyes. Both of my parents are full blk, but neither of them have eyes like mine. My eyes also change from blue to grey depending on what I wear.

    I have a friend who is Danish with a light tannish complexion (naturally) and blue eyes. Some people of Scandinavian descent do have this coloring, while others will have a lighter skin color.

    Yep. It's all the wonderful world of genetics.

    The genetic contributions of two parents yield many different results based on who ends up being dominant or recessive in the combinations.

    Yes it is possible. Aishwarya Rai(Miss World 1996) has brown skin and blue eyes. Although it is very rare!

    yes it is possible I've seen people with brown skin with green, gray and blue. My grandmothers eyes were hazel.

    A person doesn't have to be light skinned to have these eye colors.
