Women with dark brown hair and blue eyes have features that pop with a very light makeup routine, and can also be more dramatically enhanced with slight variations in cosmetic application.
Actresses such as Zooey Deschanel, Aishwarya Rai, and Lauren Graham all have dark brown hair and blue eyes and carry the look off very well.
This hub will give you makeup tips for dark brown hair and blue eyes using these celebrities' photos for examples.
Get Lauren Graham's Go-anywhere Makeup Look
Lauren Graham's makeup is appropriate for both daytime and a less dramatic evening out.
She emphasizes her eyes and lips while keeping the rest of her face low-key.
If you master only one makeup look, let this be it.
- Apply a foundation that has neutral undertones to it -- not too orange and not too pink. If you have a hard time trying to figure this one out, just go by how it looks on you. If the foundation looks "just right," then you've succeeded.
- Sweep a peachy pearl eyeshadow across your lids and all the way up to your brow line.
- Apply a very light peachy pink blush to the apples of your cheeks and across your forehead.
- Draw a very thin line of black eyeliner around your entire eye.
- Apply three coats of mascara to your upper lashes only.
- Cover your lips with a dark watermelon lipstick.
