Gals with brown eyes are so gorgeous, there's even a song written about them. You likely know how certain makeup shades can make your mocha peepers stand out, but you can also help them do so by rocking clothes that feature certain hues. To make your dark brown eyes pop, try a few colors that will leave your eyes -- and the rest of you -- looking amazing.


Have you ever noticed that when you wear brown eye shadow, your eyes look even more vibrant? Well, the same thing goes with brown clothes. Clothes in the same shade as your irises will make them look even more rich. So throw on a chocolate shirt or dress, and watch as your eyes become even more magical.


Rich shades are perfect for enhancing your dark eye color. Deep burgundy shares some of the same undertones your eyes have, and makes them pop as a result. Although you can wear this hue anytime, it looks especially sexy in fall, when deep and rich colors are all around you.


Violet eyeshadow looks divine around a brown eye, and the same goes for clothing of this color. The pretty color contrasts with your dark eyes, and really makes them stand out. A violet top or jacket will give your eyes a vibrant look that makes everyone take notice. Top if off with violet makeup, and you'll look runway ready.


Just about anything gold is eye-catching, and when you wear the metallic shade, your eyes become even more compelling. Gold brings out the shimmery undertones of your brown eyes and makes them look stunning. Throwing on a gold dress or tank top adds sparkle not only to your ensemble, but to your eyes, as well.
