    This is a strange question. People generally know their eye color; why would they need to check it in a mirror? Do you mean eye makeup?

    Trying out new colored contacts?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Probably, but I don't know whether it's necessary to specify that it's make-up- the sentence sounds OK to me.
