Brown eyes (the eye color most Pinays have) are often paired with neutral browns, beiges, and bronzes to emphasize them. If you're stuck in a lil' bit of an eye makeup rut, we found the simplest trick to help you take your eye looks to the ~next level~: light blue eyeshadow! Thanks to Instagram, we noticed how celebs like Sue Ramirez and Kendall Jenner have been wearing the icy hue on the inner corners of their lids—and we instantly thought, "Why haven't we been doing this all along???"
Before you disregard the eyeshadow color and say it won't suit you, check out the effect it has on these famous brown-eyed ladies:
See how a softly blended shade of blue on the inner corners of their peepers suddenly made their brown eyes look richer? It makes a huge difference!
While thinking about how blue and brown could look amazing together, we realized it's because the ultra-cool shade gives a nice contrast to the warm, chocolatey hue. When applied next to each other, they both make each other more vibrant and lively. COOL!
