been reading another thread about eyeliners, does navy really go with brown eyes? sounds like the contrast brings the eye colour out? opinions pleasesmile

Google image search - it looks very striking.

Any blue looks great with brown eyes. I was just looking at this picture and thinking it's such a shame it wouldn't show against my grey eyes .

I also think this is an amazing evening look for brown eyes .

I wear a French navy but..Am mixed race so bit darker than the average brit sometimes you have to look really close to tell. Boots no 7 and collection 2000 both do nice felt eyeliners

I thinknavy will be fine or any deeper blue but I personally hate light blue on brown eyes - look 'hard boiled' to me.

I have brown eyes (sort of hazel in some lights) with dark brown hair.

I love navy mascara with my eye colour
Navy eyeliner
grey - either silver or charcoal grey
teal green

but YY Deathwatch light blue looks wrong wrong wrong on mine. A bit "Shirley out of Eastenders" hard looking.
