I recently colored my hair dark brown. I love it, but I'm just not sure now how to wear my eye make-up. I also have blue eyes and olive skin. I'm particularly confused by what eyeshadows would look best.
No advice on make up, I am the complete opposite...blond hair, brown/hazel eyes & very pale skin!
Just wanted to say I think it's a very striking look!
I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.
I think shades of brown and burgundy ("berry" shades) would look lovely with your new dark brown hair and blue eyes...It would definitely make your eyes pop. Also like the link above says...rose/dusty pinks would be nice. I have dark hair and light brown eyes, with medium-dark olive/yellowish skin, and dusty rose is nice for the eyes

supposedly if you have light eyes (and I do)...I've seen it on what not to wear and in magazines, you are supposed to wear the opposite color of your eye. So if you have light eyes you wear brown or grey/brown eyeshadow. Also on what not to wear she did a lady with light eyes in sort of a plum eyeshadow and it looked really nice

To tell you the truth, I think a neutral color palette would look great. You've got plenty of color contrast naturally: blue eyes/olive skin/dark hair. Warm, bronzy blush applied with a light hand along with a cafe au lait colored eyed shadow and a fabulous gloss are probably enough to make those eyes pop like nobody's business.
My coloring is much different than yours (I am a black girl), but, like you I have plenty of contrasts naturally (Dark hair/light eyes/bronze skin). I don't like to use very much color at all.

I have light blue eyes, dark hair, but I have a very fair complexion. I use neutral eye shadow. Creme, beiges, taupes, etc. When ever I go to a makeup counter the first thing any one wants to do is put purple eyeshadow on me. The purple tones would be pretty on you, I bet. I can't wear them myself because I am sensitive to anything with pink or red in it on my eyes.

I have dark hair and dark blue eyes. I like black or charcoal liner for a bit of drama or a dark, chocolatey brown if I want a more natural look with the blue really popping out. With light eyes, maybe a lighter gray or silver would be better. My daughter has bright blue eyes and she likes to wear lavender liner. Looks great on her but she's also only 13.
