Best Eyeshadow For Brown Eyes

Best eyeshadow for brown eyes.  My life is forever changing in great ways and I never know where I’ll be next or what I’ll be doing.  On some projects I might be working from home for days on end and on other projects I’m dressing up everyday and going into an office. When I spend my time at home, I keep my makeup very easy and simple, but on days when I’m running around, I like to play with my makeup as I never know whom I might run in to.  Lately I’ve been playing more with my eye makeup. I’ve found that with my brown eyes I can pull off most colours, however,  metallics,  purples, greens and pinks all make my eyes really pop.

Purple. This is such a great colour for brown eyes, as it sits on the opposite end of the colour wheel and provides a beautiful contrast. I love purples that have a bluish tint or ones that are almost pink. Pink is definitely a universally flattering colour and will surely make your eyes stand out. If I’m going out, I might even reach for a purple mascara as it adds a subtle infusion of colour.

Blue. Whether you reach for a deep navy or a bright cobalt, either shade will help brighten your eyes. Now, of course, I’m not saying that you need to go all out as this can easily cross the line from elegant to gaudy. What I like to do, is reach for a deep navy liner which is softer than a harsh black.

Green. This is one of my favourite shades, especially if it has flecks of gold, but we’ll get to that in a minute. For the lucky ones with flecks of hazel in their eyes, green will intensify them.

Gold and Copper. These are probably my go to shades for everyday. While I love silver for a dramatic evening look, gold tones really bring out the warmth in my eyes. They seem to soften the deep brown and are a perfect neutral compliment to whatever other makeup I choose.

Since brown is a neutral, it really will look great with any eye shadow you choose, but of course as always, you have to find the best tone for you. So the next time that you are at a makeup counter, reach outside of your comfort zone and try a colour you would never have dreamed of reaching for. Who knows, you just might find a whole new you!

What’s your go to eye makeup colour?

  1. Yes! I agree with you, best thing about having browns eyes is we can pull of any colour! I wear a lot of M.A.C. colours mostly in gold, copper or purple tones. I find their shadows have great pigment for darker skin but I’ve heard great things about Urban decay’s naked eye pallets too.

    xo, Jackie

    1. Agreed that MAC has amazing pigments and as it happens Urban Decay is my other fave!

  2. I needed to read this. My eyes are brownish-green and I never know what colors to use.

    1. Oh I’m so happy and definitely a little jealous because I really love green eyes!

  3. Great post! I have green eyes so I mostly wear neutrals if anything. Love all the colours here though! xx

    Viva Epernay

    1. I’m jealous! Green eyes are my fave. I’ll be doing a similar post for green eyes in the next few days.

  4. mine are black, but I am loving the choice of colors u have picked.
    New Post on my blog, do drop by soon ,<3

    1. I think that black and brown are definitely close enough. There’s a huge range of browns anyway!

  5. Kelly (@Birdieshoots)

    Definitely taking notes! I’m so stuck when it comes to doing colored eye makeup. The purple shade is gorgeous!

  6. Great eyeshadow dear!!! 🙂

    1. Thanks!

  7. Hi Caroline!
    I need these tips, I have hazel eyes and I think the colors that you presented are perfect!

  8. Got green-blue eyes, I usually go for something neutral like light brown or just eyeliner. I look better when I am not to playful.
