Try coloured eye makeup looks
Brown eyes are versatile, and many eyeshadow colours perfectly complement them. From pinks to blues and greens, there’s literally no colour that would not look good with this eye colour. Be a little experimental and don’t be afraid to try on different hues, as your eye colour can pull off just about anything. Start by sporting coloured eyeliners and then ease into rocking bolder coloured eyeshadows.
Brown eyes love blue makeup
Blue eye makeup helps create the perfect contrast to brown eyes. A blue smoky eye looks stunning on brown eyed girls. Play around with blue on your eyes, and add a little wing or create length by extending the shadow a little beyond the outer corner. Add more depth and drama using a lighter shade of blue on the inner eye.
Keep your brows basic
If you decide to wear a colourful eye, make sure you keep the rest of your makeup in the nude-brown zone. Keep your brows simple, lightly filling in with a product that matches their natural colour. Overdoing it will compete with your eyes. Remember to add a little highlighter below the brow bone for added depth and dimension.
Find your perfect lip colour
When it comes to lipsticks, you are truly blessed as most colours will end up looking good on you. However, the most fool-proof plan is to choose a colour that doesn’t have blue or any other cool undertones in it. Vivid, warm toned lipsticks should be great for you as they help play up the warmth of brown eyes and should therefore be a staple in every brown-eyed girl’s makeup stash.
