Hold down the Shift button and when the plus sign near the cursor appears, just add the second eye area selection.

After that fill the selected area with color #556141 on a new layer.

Then set foreground color to black. After that select the Pen Tool (you need to make sure that you’re working with Paths instead of Shape Layers). Draw out the line using paths:
