are my eyes light brown?

anyways, what eye shadow works for me, and what eye shadow does NOT?

Update 2:

do you think blue/dark blue looks trashy?

    i agree with many of the posters that most colors will work for your eye color. But because of your skin tone, try staying away from steely greys, and dark blue. Try different hues in its pastel shade. soft greens and blues will compliment your eyes and skin much more than the harsher dark ones. Also olive and plum colors may suit your very well.

    Good luck!

    I think that you would look awesome with a dark grey on the bottom going into a lighter grey at the top. Blues would look good to and browns. You can pretty much wear anything you just have to experiment with the colors. go to a virtual makeover site and try on the makeup.

    Brown eyes go with all colors. Neutrals look best though, brown, olive, tan, things like that. Nothing really looks bad against brown eyes but colors might not go with your skin tone. Go to a makeup counter and they can figure all your colors for you.

    u have kinda light brown eyes, most colours will work for ur eyes, but greens work really well with brown eyes, so does silvery/grey u can get away with pretty much any colour if u have brown eyes, which is why us brown eyed girls are soo lucky. i think eye shadow colour also has to do with skin tone.

    ok my eyes are a similar color to yours. on a daily basis i wear a brown eye shadow. but when i go out and stuff i wear purple, sometimes pink and even green. purple compliments the brown and there is even a kit that comes with three eye shadows and it tells you how to apply. it is specifically for people with brown eyes. i am not sure who makes it though. but purple looks great with brown eyes.

    I don't know how much eyeshadow you want to use but a mauve would be gorgeous with your eye color. You can start with a neutral base and then use the mauve on the outside of your eye and a little in the center to make your eyes pop.

    You are so lucky! Brown eyed girls are neutral so really any shade you put on is going to look great with your eyes. Pinks, plums, golds, coppers, greys. Shimmery eye shadows really set off brown eyes but you really can't go wrong with brown.
