While many long for a pair of bright blue or green eyes, there's nothing quite like a set of mysterious brown eyes. The good news about having brown eyes? They're easy to play up, since brown is a mix of the primary colours. This most-common of eye colours is a gorgeous hue, and the right shade of eyeshadow can make it even more alluring.
So, for you brown-eyed beauties looking to build up your makeup kit and enhance your eye colour, Get The Look is showing you the best shades for bringing out the depth in bewitching brown eyes.
THE BEST EYESHADOW COLOURS FOR BROWN EYES
Navy's cool tones (or any blue, really) beautifully contrast brown eyes, making them stand out – and the whites of the eyes appear brighter as well. Opt for a palette with a few combinations of blue shades that will best suit you for any occasion. The best part? Blue shadow is very on-trend right now, so you'll be left with one runway-approved look!
If you're more of a liner person, slick on a cobalt blue hue along the upper lash line for a pop of flattering colour. Go bold, or keep it subtle, depending on how thick, or thin you draw it on.
Rust or copper coloured eyeshadow is quickly becoming one of fall 2016's top makeup trends. Spotted on runways and celebs like Brie Larson, we're inspiring brown eyed beauties to take note and try this look for everyday. A beautiful copper brown shadow will pick up flecks of gold hues in brown eyes – especially if it has a little shimmer to it! Apply it on your upper lids and beneath your lower lash line for an eye-catching glare.
Pair the shadow with a similar-shaded eye pencil along your upper lids to make your brown peepers really pop.
Brown shadow on brown eyes adds depth and intensity to your glare. Opt for a palette with multiple shades of brown that you can play up or down and blend depending on the occasion. Use a brown shadow on the lower lid, topped with a highlighter shade for a smoky effect.
A matte, soft peach is the perfect shade to bring out deep-brown eyes. The warm hue will highlight any golden flecks in your eyes, and it's the perfect way to ease into the runways' trendy pink and red shadow hues.
If you'd rather skip shadow all together, but aren't afraid to try something new, opt for an olive coloured liner pencil that will highlight the eyes. For an edgier look, apply it on your upper lids and slightly beneath your lower lash line, then buff it out and use it as a shadow or blurred effect.
