Hi Midnitejam,

like for everything else in Photoshop, there are many ways for colouring eyes in a natural way ... the one I prefer is:
  • Select the irises and very lightly feather the selection.
  • Create a Hue&Saturation Adjustment Layer.
  • Tick the 'colorize' box.
  • Play with Hue, Saturation and Lightness until you are satisfied with the result.

If the 'original' eyes are dark, like in the attachment, you can use Levels or Curves to 'light' them up a bit before colorization.
