"Jeepers, Creepers, where'd you get those peepers?"
Answer: I bought them in a box! tee hee
Despite what you may think, colored contacts aren't just for attractive vampires in blockbuster movies (you know what I'm talking about). I wear colored contacts from time to time as well.
I have terrible eyesight, but one of the upsides is I get to experiment with my eye color. I have a menagerie of colored contact lenses. I usually wear freshlook colorblends, and between my sister and I, I think we've tried every color they have. I've personally tried Blue, Green, turquoise, brilliant blue and right now I'm wearing sterling grey, and so far it's my favorite.
Here are my brown eyes, which I am still more than happy to rock most of the time:
Brown, Rose, Lavender, neutral tones. Also, try Navy liner instead of black for a softer look.
Make sure to tone down you lip color so that all the focus is on those baby blues.
Dark Brown and Navy eye liner is always preferable to black for blue eyes (I never knew).
Naturally I have VERY dark brown eyes. Darker colors like Plum, and charcoal grey or dark neutral colors have always looked best with my dark browns.
Medium Brown Eyes:
The world is your oyster, everything works for you. My sister has medium brown eyes and honestly ever color looks great on her.
Light Brown eyes:
Try dark brown liner, it's less harsh on light eyes than black.
Warm Metallics will reflect the glints of color in your eyes.
Try champagne tones lined in dark brown!
Purple is your best friend. Avoid Silver and Black instead try gold or charcoal. And I am insanely jealous of you green eyed people ;).
For the most part avoid colors that are the same as your eye color,
and a smokey charcoal eye looks good with almost any eye color . . . even Vampire Red ;).
If I have one piece of eyewear advice it would be . . . Don't wear these:
