I have problems with finding brown eyeshadows!I have brown eyes and I prefer natural eyeshadows.But every brown eyeshadows I see is turning into orange or red,and I don't like it!The only eyeshadow that I have and it's true brown is Mac's Romp,and I really like it but I want to have more!What do you suggest?Also what other shades are good for brown eyes(except pinks,I don't look good with pink eyeshadows)!Oh if you could tell me some Mac's eyeshadows,I want to try more of them!!

I'm not a MAC expert, but I totally agree with you! I don't like the warm tone in brown eye shadows. I like earthy (maybe even greenish) tone. I personally like and use Fake.

Satin Taupe doesn't turn red or orange at all because it's a cool-toned brown. It's very pretty and shimmery and easy to wear. Club is also nice - a cool brown with a green shimmer.

If you want to make your brown eyes stand out, use greens (Sumptuous Olive, Greensmoke, Fiction, Humid, Juxt, Sprout), blues (Tilt, Aquadisiac, Steamy, Freshwater, Deep Truth) and purples (MAC Shale, Crystal, Digit, Parfait Amour, Violet Pigment, Nocturnelle, etc).

They're nice to wear with green, too. Try out Tilt first. It's a cool light to medium blue with green shimmer. So pretty and quite easy to wear. Not bright. Or try Steamy - wonderful paired with emerald greens and it's a warm blue anyway so does verge on green.

I've tried Golightly once on my hand at a Stila counter but i found it a little dark to wear it know in the summer,I think is better to wear it in the winter!What's the best eyeshadow to pair with Golightly?

Cargo's St. Tropez is pretty good for a brown. It kind of reminds me of chocolate milk!
