That’s exactly why we’ve gathered some of our favorite makeup tutorials for brown eyes to help you utilise your tools and make your gorgeous eyes pop. Let us know which of these gorgeous looks you’ll be trying in your own time!
Brown Crease with Black Flicked Eyeliner
Start with a lovely light gold shade and work it right across the eyelid. Take a dark brown shade and blend it into the crease for this fantastic shadow effect. Blend this out for a smokey look, and then use eyeliner to line the eyes, working towards a dramatic flick which works from the outer corner to the end of the eyebrow. Mascara to finish is always the answer.
Subtle Black Eyeliner
Start this fantastic look by using a black kohl pencil to line the waterline of the upper eyelid, then do the same for the waterline of the bottom of the eye. Use a thick eyeliner to draw a line hugging the lashes from the inner to outer corners, to finish this fantastic lined finish.
Stunning Shimmery Bronze Look
Start with a light base, sweeping the eyeshadow right across the eyelid. Then use a light brown to blend into the crease and towards the outer corner, creating a smokey eye effect. Build this area with intensity by layering your brown eyeshadow. With a glittery cold colour then, sweep across from the inner corner to the centre and blend out. Finish with mascara for fabulous fluttery eyelashes.
Subtle Shimmery Blend
This beautiful champagne look is oh so gorgeous – and the perfect style to compliment brown eyes. Start with a light gold and blend it right across the eyelid. Then work a lighter brown from the outer corner and blended right into the crease. Drag the brown eyeshadow under the bottom of the eye, and finish with a thin eyeliner flick and mascara.
Matte Eye with Double Flick
Very subtle eyeshadow work is what makes this look so special – the perfect day to night finish! Start with your neutral base, and choose a light brown to ever so slightly blend from the crease and out towards the outer corner of the eye. With your eyeliner, drag the line from the inner corner and back to create a fantastic flick which draws a line parallel from the other corner to the end of the eyebrow. Use a kohl pencil to create a similar line from the waterline, which finishes just below your eyeliner.
Yellow and Pink Blend
Start with white eyeshadow swept rifht across the lid. With a yellow shade, pat the colour gentle onto the middle of the eyelid. Take a hot pink and blend towards the outer corner. Finish with a dark brown subtly blended from the crease back to the outer corner, and bring the brown eyeshadow under the eye. Use thick black eyeliner with a flick to finish the look, and use a kohl pencil in the waterline to make your eyes pop.
Black Blended Crease with Long Eyelashes
This lovely look showcases stunning eyeshadow skills. Taking a nude shade, work it right across the eyelid. With a light brown, work it from the outer corner of the eye towards the middle of the eyelid. Build the intensity of this section to get darker and darker, blending that colour right into the crease. Add a think lined eyeliner from the centre of the eye to the other corner. Finish with false eyelashes for a dramatic end result.
Blue and Silver Blend
This amazing denim inspired look is just perfect for lovely brown eyes – don’t you think? Taking a navy blue eyeliner, draw a triangle around the outer corners of the eye, building in intennsity until you’re satisfied. Take a white eyeshadow and work it from the inner corner towards the centre, then with a navy eyeshadow from the outer corner blend it back towards the middle. Finish with eyeliner right around the eye for framed perfection.
Smokey Mauve Perfection
Start with a lovely white shade and blend it fully across the eyelid, from the inner to the outer corners. Then take a deep and dark shade of mauve and blend it outwards towards the brow bone, for this gorgeous and glowy finihs. With your eyeliner, draw a thick line which hugs the lashes from one end to the other and finish with a flick, then drag the black line along the water line too.
Peach and Purple Eyeshadow Blend
Start with a shimmery champagne shade and blend it from the inner corner to create a lovely sparkle. Take a lovely peach shade and blend from the outer corner in towards the middle. Using a pretty mauve colour, blend into the crease for a touch of colour. Finish with a thick eyeliner line close to the lashes and finished with a flick.
