Hi, I'm Brandy Allen, celebrity makeup artist, here at ByBy Studio in Las Angeles and today I want to do makeup for brown eyes. Now here is the thing, brown eyes are the most versatile color eyes. You can do any color. So I want to play today. I want to do a couple colors. I want to do green, purple and finish off with some flirty lashes. Let's start with the green eye shadow on the eyelid. Here you can see the green is really intense. By using an eyeshadow primer, this serves as an adhesive between the eyeshadow and your eyelid. So place the green directly on the eyelid. This also helps with fallout. Make sure the green stays below the crease, depending on your eye shape you can go a little bit in the crease. To enhance the eyelid, I'm taking a shimmery green in the same tone and putting it right at the lash line. Notice I'm patting the eyeshadow. I'm patting the eyeshadow so that it eliminates fallout and the color is still intense. Next I'm going to take an intense purple and add it into the crease. I added just a little eyeshadow on the bottom to balance the top and we're finished, a perfect eyeshadow for brown eyes, three colors and some lashes. Thank you for watching. I'm Brandy Allen, makeup artist and if you want more information please visit Brandyallen.com or Themakeupmix.com. Thank you.
