I’m light/medium olive with blonde hair and hazel eyes; I wear brown, grey, and mauve liners. Black makes me look too emo/jaundiced 😛

I’m pale with blue eyes and even though I usually wear black liner (I’m working through various samples I got in my Birchboxes), I plan to wear navy blue liner for the wedding. I think black will be too harsh.

I always wore black in the past as I never really thought of trying anything else. However for the wedding I wanted a more natural look so found a brown liquid eyeliner (this took ages to find as there are hardly any brown ones out there, in the end it was an Eyeco one I got). I now only ever wear brown eyeliner as I’ve realised it suits me better and looks less harsh.

Brown, my eyes are small and the black just makes them look even smaller, somehow. Brown matches my hair and seems more natural.

I have fair skin and blue eyes. I wear brown since it compliments my coloring better

I think it depends on color of your hair and eyes. I prefer brown option, it’s better with red hair and green eyes)

I wear black eyeliner and mascara. I have really pale skin and light eyes but my hair is dark brown and my eyebrows and eyelashes are black so I just think it looks more natural.

I wear black eyeliner on the top and brown on my bottom lashline. I’d never wear eyeliner on my bottom waterline as it tends to make eyes look smaller, and I just don’t like the way it looks.

I’m super pale but I only use black since I always do super bold cat eye makeup.

I’ve got blonde hair and blue eyes and usually wear navy eyeliner on the top only during the day, because it looks good with my eye color, but in the evening I wear black.  I never wear eyeliner on the bottom because it makes me look like the mayhem man in that commercial where he plays a raccoon.
