Shades with warm undertones and shimmer warm up dark irises and brighten the whites of the eyes. With smoky eyes, refrain from going too dark. Blends of gray shadows look bold without making the eyes look like charcoal.
Those with medium brown eyes should opt for green and purple that brighten any green or hazel flecks in the iris. Light brown eyes usually have golden flecks. Yellow and light gold shadows make them more apparent. Pair with a dark liner for contrast.
