Best Makeup for Brown Eyes? Take Your Pick!

January 30, 2019Notino
Brown eyes might be the most common, but that doesn’t make them boring! They give you the opportunity to try the widest range of colourful eyeshadows, eyeliners and other makeup.

Brown eyes suit pretty much any shade of makeup there is. You just have to know what you want from your final look. If you’re headed to work or for a coffee date, you can opt for light tones of taupe, peach, dusty rose and subtle green that will make your beautiful brown eyes stand out without drawing attention to your makeup itself. Try the fantastic Eye Magnetic Color Shadow Quad by Gucci in the shade Serpentine Envy and you can mix-and-match colours from subdued gold to green without worry.

Eyeshadows for Light and Dark Skin

Having brown eyes doesn’t mean that you can’t use brown eyeshadow and create a stunning natural look. How about the Smokey Eye Matte Drama Kit palette from Max Factor? Just keep in mind that if your skin is really light, dark shades of brown, nougat and greyish brown can make you look a little tired if not used correctly.

On the other hand, if your skin tone is darker, then deep shades of brown will be a good everyday match for your gorgeous brown eyes. Our model is wearing warm shades from the Maybelline The Nudes palette, putting a lighter shade all over the upper lid, deepening the crease from the middle with a darker shade, and tying it all together with a cat eye courtesy of the L’Oréal Paris Super Liner.

Brown and Bold

Don’t forget your eyeliner does not necessarily have to be dark. Try a daring gold shade! Golden eyeshadow will be like a sparkly kiss of sunshine for your brown eyes. Try the Ink Me Eye & Body Liner by Rimmel to get the same effect with eyeliner. If you’re in a mood to turn some heads, start experimenting with orange, yellow, turquoise or bright blue. They’re amazing colours especially for the summer when your skin is generally darker.

If you want to try them now during winter, they’ll pair up splendidly with a bronzing powder. Looking for some tips? The I Heart Revolution Mermaids Heart and Makeup Revolution by Petra palettes will help you get a colourful look as well as create a sultry smokey eye when you feel like it.

All that’s left is the right mascara. But which one? You can go with brown, blue, purple or classic black – it’s up to you. Just opt for a volumizing version such as the Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils by YSL to give your look more depth!
