Brown eyes are deep, dark and can make you look absolutely stunning. Beautiful brown eyes look so gorgeous and can match a whole selection of stunning makeup looks which will showcase your peepers to perfection. Indeed, brown eyes work with a host of incredible warming shades, hues and tones – working together to create makeup looks which are simply to die for. Here at Styles Weekly, we’re passionate about bringing you makeup looks which will suit you. Here’s 10 makeup ideas for brown eyes that you will simply adore.
Red Toned Smokey Eye
Smokey eyes are a true staple look in the makeup repertoire of almost any girl. Those luscious warming tones create an eye makeup look which will never go out of fashion. With brown eyes however, you can get away with implementing red tones into your look. Start with gold in the inner corner and blend out towards a dark, matte shade of red for a unique twist on a smokey eye classic.
Glittery Gold Glamour
Glitter and gold go hand in hand perfectly – especially when you add brown eyes into the mix! Recreate this look with gold glitter in the inner corner of the eye. Blend outwards towards a dark brown towards the outer corner. Use a light matte brown to blend throughout the crease. Finish with liquid eyeliner and lashings of mascara.
Matte Pink and Brown Blend
Matte shades are incredibly popular in all aspects of beauty lately – and we just adore matte eyeshadows. Nude and pink shades work especially well with brown eyes, so be sure to incorporate these into your makeup regime. Start with a nude pink matte shade and blend from the inner corner out. Take a lighter brown through the crease and finish with a darker brown at the outer corners.
Pink and Glitter Smokey Eye
Working glitter into your smokey eye look will add an extra touch of glam to your eye makeup – especially with this pinky look for brown eyes! Choose your favourite pink colour and pat the colour across your eyelid from the inner corner. Blend out to a deep and dark matte brown shade. Finish with gold glitter at the inner corner for a glam end result.
Gold and Bronze Blend
Bronze and brown shades work together perfectly – so you should seriously consider adding some bronze shades into your makeup bag! Recreate this look by starting with a pretty gold shade from the inner corner to the middle of the eyes. Take a bronze shade and work it throughout the crease and outwards towards the outer corner of the eyes. Finish by darkening the outer corner with a brown colour.
Gold and Purple Blend
Purple also compliments brown eyes to perfection. Working a dark purple colour into your smokey eye blend will make your brown eyes truly pop. Recreate this look by starting with a dark gold shade at the inner corner. Blend a light purple throughout the crease, and using a dark purple add colour to the outer corner. Finish with eyeliner and tons of mascara.
Silver and Brown Smokey Eye
Silver certainly has a place in the makeup bag of any gorgeous girl with brown eyes and this look pictured above will prove it! Take a light brown colour and blend from the inner corner of the eye towards the centre. Take a brown and blend throughout the crease. Choose a dark brown colour and add to the other corners. Add a silver glitter to the very inner corner of the eye to finish.
Dark Brown and Black Look
Choosing a deliciously dark makeup look will compliment your dark eyes no end – so be brave like this lady pictured above! Choose a gorgeous shade of chocolate brown and add all over the eyelid and blend outwards through the crease. Drag this colour under the lower lash line. Take a black shade and pat gently in the centre of the eyelid to darken this look.
Creamy Nude with Eyeliner
As a contrast, light shades will also create a striking look alongside brown eyes. This beautiful and bright eye makeup style will become your go to day to day look. Take a light nude shade and blend right across the eyelid. Use a light brown shade to blend the outer corner of the eyelid. Finish with a thick flick of eyeliner.
Dark and Glittery
Sometimes we want our look to be dramatic and glamorous, standing out and complimenting our outfit. This dark smokey eye is just perfect for a night out look. Start by sweeping a black shade right across your eyelid. Use a light brown to blend throughout the crease. Finish with a pat of gold glitter to the inner corners.
