Hi, I'm Danielle Cavalear, professional makeup expert, and today I'm going to show you some techniques for your eye color. First of all, as you can see, our model has a deep brown eye color, dark hair, more of a fair skin complexion so I'm going to start out with a grayish color on the bottom of the lid. What you're going to do is you're going to want to start at the corner and work your way out to the end, and this gray almost has a shimmer to it on the eyelid. It looks great with brown eyes. Make sure to cover your entire eyelid, and make sure it's well-blended. Next, I'm going to use this yellow light canary yellow. Believe it or not it helps to make brown eyes pop. We're going to want to add that into the center. Maybe raise it a little higher than normal into the brow area, so when we do blend it looks natural. And along the top, we're going to add this off white color right along the brow. This always opens up the eyes. Do nice soft strokes all the way to the end. Okay, I'm going to add a light eyeliner to this look because she has beautiful brown eyes. We do want to show them off. Go ahead and close. I'm going to start at the tip of the top eyelid from the outside, small strokes all the way to the center. This will help to make the lashes also look thicker when we apply our mascara. I'm going to leave the bottom lid without eyeliner, and we're just going to go ahead and apply a coat of mascara, open, there you go. Okay, look up, beautiful. And there you go, beautiful brown eyes. That is how to apply eye makeup for your specific eye color. I'm Danielle, professional makeup expert.
