How to Choose Makeup for Brown Eyes


Looking for makeup that naturally compliments your eye color will help narrow down the options and give you a great, personalized look. For those with stunning brown eyes, finding the right shades and hues isn't as hard as you think. Follow these steps.

  • Select an eye shadow that complements your brown eye color. Brown, pink, blue and gold tones look great against the rich brown of your eyes. The cool hues contrast well against warmer eye tones and will brighten the eyes to make them pop. Choose a shade lighter than your eyes for a natural, clean look or a shade darker for a sultry, dramatic feel.

  • Choose a dark liner in a shade that best matches your eye shadow. Navy or plum tones work well with the blue and purple shadows. A traditional, black liner will deliver a dramatic effect and really make your brown eyes shine.

  • Use black mascara to open and brighten your eyes. Designed to thicken and lengthen lashes, mascara is a must for any eye color, but for brown eyes classic black mascara will highlight the warm, rich hue of your eyes.

  • Keep the rest of your makeup minimal to draw attention to your eyes. Choosing neutral shades of lip and cheek color will keep the focus on your eyes and deliver a beautiful, clean look.

Tips & Warnings

  • Many cosmetic brands offer color compacts specifically designed for brown eyes making shade choices quick and easy.
  • Shadows or liners with shimmer will brighten your eyes and make you look more awake as well as deliver a beautiful, stylish look.
