what colour goes with X eyes?

in response to a question Gretchen asked me on another thread [what color should a person w/ deep-set eyes use?]:

the colour used depends on your eye colour.

because i have very dark brown eyes with a reddish tone and a navy blue ring, i had to do some research.

herewith are my findings from surfing many, MANY sites on what colours of eye shadow complement certain eye colours -

Blue eyes - light purples [lilac, lavender], light browns [camel, taupe], peach, pink

Green eyes - pink, peach, mauve and purples, bronze [also applies to Hazel eyes]

Brown eyes - shades of browns and tans lighter or darker than your own eye colour, purples, dark greens, dark blues, pinks

if your eyes are deep-set, try not to go darker than a medium shade in any colour that you choose. dark shades make your eyes recede more.

I assume you are talking about shadow colors? Or clothes?

Hey rou -

I have always struggled with colors for my eyes - they're sort of a topaz/deep honey color with navy blue ring around the iris. I always though of "warm" colors, but brown and tan eye make-up looks terrible on me - very muddy. I stick with with wood-rose colors, which work, but I'd like to branch out.

What would you suggest, m'dear?
