“If you have brown eyes like me, blue or purple will make your eyes look more honey. So those are really good colors and that’s a really good beauty trick. And green!” the star of Baby Driver said about the ideal shades for this simple visual trick.

You should also avoid very dark shades that are more appropriate for darker eyes.
