If you have brown eyes, you’re in luck, because nearly all kinds of colors would look good on you. However, there are a few things that you can do to make your eyes look brighter and make them pop. Let’s look at some of the tips, shall we?
Since there are various shades even in brown, let’s get into the nitty gritty details for the different shades.
Plum shades complement dark brown eyes so well. They have a very earthy feel and look absolutely beautiful during the autumn. I can imagine pairing this with a lovely mustard colored sweater with some jeans and boots.
Dark green is such a pretty color, and it looks gorgeous on those with dark brown eyes. It looks incredibly enchanting. It would look great in matte or shimmer. If you’re going out in the day, a matte option would be better. If it’s for a party at night, don’t be afraid to reach out for the shimmer!
Gray, a softer option for black. I have dark brown eyes, and I can tell from personal experience that when I’m reaching for a dark yet subtle look, gray is the way to go. Add in a winged liner, and it’ll totally complete your look. For a little more detailing, you can add a line of silver glitter under the wing.
Black and gold go so well hand in hand! The gold eyeshadow is a beautiful contrast to the darkness of the black. The reason why gold works so well on brown eyes is that the pigments help to bring out the tiny flecks of gold that are present in brown eyes.
This is such a lovely color by itself. And when it’s being worn by those who have brown eyes, it makes the light flecks in the brown stand out more! This look is fantastic for a special occasion or a night out.
This color is so perfect for the fall! The slight orange around the green reminds me of a pumpkin! This look when paired with a winged liner and a pair of false lashes will do wonders for a party. Wear a cute sweater along with jeans and a pair of boots, and you’re good to go!
This is a great look for parties and nights out when you have light brown eyes. The bronze will do an excellent job in complementing the lighter specks in your eyes. This is also a great look for the summers as the bronze would signify the warmth in the air.
Rose gold is a shade that looks good on everyone, but when you really want to bring those big brown eyes forward, this wonderful color will do the job. This is a shade which is quite neutral so based on the occasion and time, you can build it up or tone it down.
I understand that matching is a thing of the past. However, this is one of those few times where matching things is okay. The soft brown eyeshadow complements the light brown in your eyes and looks very natural. This is perfect for an everyday look.
Taupe is basically a gray toned shade with purple undertones. This is a cool toned color that looks incredibly lovely if you have light brown eyes. You can dress this look up or down based on the occasion. Add a dramatic cat eye, and you’ve got yourself something fancy. If you’re all about that casual, then just apply mascara and line the lower lash line.
Following are some of the best makeup tips for brown eyes, which you should follow to look irresistibly striking.
As I already said people with brown eyes are lucky, since almost all shades work for them ─ but metallic shades are worth a special mention here. This particular shade helps the eye pop out more. Metallic tones, such as brown, gold, bronze and even pinks would make your brown eyes stand out. Such shades draw attention to your eyes and help them look better. These metallic shades are often used to create bold looks.
Who would’ve thought that we’d use white eye pencil? Many people don’t believe that white liners could make eyes look more attractive. White liners along with metallic shades can really bring out the real beauty of brown eyes. It gives you the illusion of bigger eyes which helps the brown color stand out.
Covering or hiding your dark circles can help in popping your brown eyes. You can kill two birds with one stone by using a shade lighter to conceal. This way, you would be highlighting and concealing at the same time. Highlighting your under-eyes will make you look more awake. This will bring out the brown.
If you don’t like anything that’s too bright, then this tip would probably make you happy. Most often, if you have brown eyes, you need not use much color if you don’t want to. The neutral colors are perfect for brown eyes! You can choose neutral shades, such as peach, brown and taupe. You can also use eyeliners of such shades to highlight your eyes,
Blush creates a big difference in your face. People with brown eyes have a large range of blush colors to choose from. The trick here is not to go overboard. You just want to dust some blush to the apples of your cheeks for healthy glow.
Try deep plum colored eyeliners instead your regular brown or black eyeliners. Plum or purple is one of the best colors for women with brown eyes. This makeup tip has been in the trend for a long time now, but many people either forget it or are not aware of it. To get a different look, try applying dark colored liners on your upper lid and apply lighter ones on the lower eyelid.
These are just a few tips that can be followed if you have brown eyes, but in all honesty, brown is such a neutral tone so, I’m pretty sure anything would look good with them! All eye colors are beautiful, folks! It’s all about finding the right colors and tips in order to bring them out a little bit more!
