From The Pros: Eye Makeup Tips For Brown Eyes
Try these expert eye makeup tips to make those brown eyes stand out in the best way possible
Choosing the Right ColorKeep in mind that lighter colors bring out and maximize the size of your eyes, while darker colors minimize and contour. Another one of the more important eye makeup tips for brown eyes is to combine dark eyeliner with lighter eye shadow in order to emphasize your eyes. For dark brown eyes, medium to dark eye shadow shades will work well with your color. Plum, dark green and rich greys are all great color choices. Be sure to examine the flecks of lighter color in your eyes in order to select an appropriate eyeliner color.
For medium brown eyes, try playing around with violet, green and bronze-colored eye shadows. Because medium brown goes well with any color, you can even apply multiple colors for a multi-dimensional look. For light brown eyes, be sure to examine the flecks in your eyes. If you have golden flecks in your irises, use pale yellow as a highlight. You want to be careful not to overpower your shade of brown, so limit the darker shadows that you use in the crease area.
To draw attention to your eyes, keep other makeup, such as lips and cheeks, more neutral, and apply lighter shades like pink and taupe to open your eyes and give them a more natural look. Shimmer eye shadow will brighten your brown eyes, and for a smoky look, go for grey eye shadows.
