Err...
As faol said, you need to go into much more detail. What kind of tau? What colors? What effect do you want in the long run?
For general painting tips you might want to look at some of the pinned topics in the Painting section.

Most people likes to paint Tau using camo colours, so browns, greens, greys...

Also not trying to sounds like a jerk but do you have the Codex? There are some good color schemes in there that can spark some ideas as well

...Better in what way?
Tau are a very clean army, so you're not going to be doing a lot of things that would make them seem "unplain" like camo, stripes, or what-not. You might want to paint a little white or something here or there (like on that Shas'ui's sholder pad)
