I’m very pale with natural very light blonde hair. I wear brown eyeliner, mascara and brow filler. Black looks way too harsh on me.

I have a tan skin. Black liner is more flattering for me.

I have fair skin and wore a dark brown color on top and brown on bottom. Black just looks too harsh on me.

I have light skin but dark brown eyes. So I use black eyeliner to make my eyes pop.

Brown looks much more natural with my coloring. I only wear black when I’m glamming it up.

Black. I have dark hair/eyes though so I always wear the “blackest” black I can find.

I switch it up depending on what kind of look I want.  Mostly, I use black liner though.  I have dark brown-black hair, brown eyes and medium-tan skin.

I’m pale as a piece of printer paper, and wore brown on my wedding day, my eyeshadow was a gold/brown finish. 

Normally though, I wear black. Even then I’m pale, i have dark dark eyebrows and lashes, so it looks better for certain looks.

I do both, but sometimes I also do a dark gray. It seems more dramatic than a brown, but not as harsh as a black. Just depends on where I am going/what I’m doing. 🙂

I wear black! I have dark brown hair, eyebrows, and eyes, and pretty fair skin. I think brown eyeliner would be brown overload.

When I wear eye liner (usually just on the weekends, and even then not every weekend day) I actually usually wear a dark purple, it’s not obviously super purple looking, but it looks great with my eyes. I occasionally will wear brown as I’m quite pale, sometimes black but not often.

Always brown.  Black is too harsh on me, and brown makes my blue eye look bluer.

i’m gunna go against the grain here and say i have dark hair and dark eyes BUT  i wear dark brown liquid eyeliner on the top and just plain black in my water line on the bottom. For some reason i feel dark brown liner looks better on my eyes 🙂
