The opportunity to enhance natural brown eyes is easier than you may think! It’s all about the different colors you use in various products from eyeshadows and eyeliners to mascara and glitter to make them pop. Brown eyes tend to stand out against colors like deep purple, electric blue, emerald green and golden bronze shadows. The key is to alternate between these shades to bring out golden flecks hidden in brown eyes. Check out these five different ways to find confidence in those brown eyes.
1. Gold Smokey Eye:
A simple smokey eye creates a sultry and sexy look dramatic eye makeup. This look is not for everyday use, unless that’s your vibe, then more power to you! The golden smokey eye look is perfect for an intimate date night or birthday celebration. The black shadow on the outer corner creates depth and leaves the lid space with a lot of room for creativity. Since we’re wanting to make those brown eyes pop, we need to throw a wash of gold shadow across the lid to balance the dark outer corner. The contrasts of light and dark bring out a golden shade in brown eyes.
2. Soft glam with a pop of color:
This look is perfect for a brunch with the girls where you know a few Instagram pictures will be taken. We don’t want those brown eyes getting lost in the shuffle. Take a wash of golden-brown shadow across the lid to keep the look simple. When it comes to the lower lash line that’s where the wow factor comes in. Take an emerald green eyeliner and smudge it along the lower lash line as well as the water line. You really want to build up the pigment so don’t be afraid to be generous with the product. Any green flecks in your eyes will be drawn out by the green wash of color and make those brown eyes stand out.
3. Purple eyeliner:
The color purple is the best match for brown eyes. Whether it is a deep purple or lilac eyeliner, it is the perfect look to make those eyes pop. The girly and edgy tones of purple contradict the richness of brown eyes to create pretty and outlandish eye makeup. This look can range from a subtle wash under the eyes during the day to a full-on dramatic wing at night to make a bold statement. Rock those brown eyes!
4. Blue eyeliner:
A vibrant royal blue eyeliner isn’t reserved just for blue or green eyes. This eyeliner does wonders for deep brown eyes. Take a blue eyeliner and sculpt the under eye with any thickness preferred. This really draws attention to the richness of brown eyes. Bonus points, if you incorporate blue mascara t the lower eyelashes it can intensify the electric blue liner. This look is perfect for a fun night out bar hopping or attending a rock show.
5. Black eyeliner tight lining the eyes:
Normally black eyeliner would close off the eyes and make them look smaller. However, with brown eyes, black liner tracing the eye provides a dark background for the eyes to pop. It makes the sclera, the white space around the brown iris, appear brighter and it will enhance dark eyelashes. The black eyeliner wrapped around the eye gives off a piercing and intense look that draws attention the center of the eye.
