Eye Makeup Looks

There’s a reason why the phrase “Eyes are the windows to the soul” is so popular–they are, after all, one of the first things people notice about you. And if you’re lucky enough to have brown eyes, you have it made! Brown eyes are one of the most versatile, meaning you can wear almost any shade of eye makeup without clashing. That’s why we’re showing you 3 makeup looks for brown eyes that are perfect for any occasion.

Everyday Eye Makeup Looks For Brown Eyes

Whether you are a beginner or an experienced makeup artist, these three looks will help you bring out the natural beauty of your brown eyes. Look #1 is a simple everyday look that uses neutral colors to create a soft and natural effect. Look #2 is a smoky eye look that is perfect for a night out. Look #3 is an exotic look that uses bright colors and gold eyeliner to create a dramatic look.

Daytime Look (Winged Eyeliner and Blush)

A daytime eye makeup look for brown eyes should be soft and natural. To achieve this, start by lining your upper lash line with a brown eyeliner. Then, use a fluffy brush to sweep a light pink blush onto the apples of your cheeks. Finish with a coat of volumizing mascara. For a more dramatic look, you can add a little eyeliner wing to the outer corners of your eyes.

Moonlit Makeup (Empire State Building and Fireworks)

The final look is inspired by the classic New York City skyline. Since this particular look is based on a nighttime scene, we’re using shades of navy, black and silver. To start, apply a navy eye shadow all over the lid. In the crease, blend in a black eye shadow and then highlight the brow bone with a silver eye shadow. Next, apply a thick line of liquid eyeliner along the top lash line. For the final touch, add some fake eyelashes and finish with a few coats of mascara.

Details to Make Your Eyes Pop (Bronzer and Shimmer)

A little bit of bronzer and shimmer can go a long way when it comes to making your eyes pop. Bronzer can be used as an all-over lid color or in the crease to add dimension. For shimmer, a light dusting on the brow bone or inner corner of the eye will open up your eyes and make them look brighter. When it comes to eyeshadow, less is more. So, only use these details if you want your eyes to really stand out. Our olive green eyeshadow with gold flecks is perfect for creating a sultry eye look for brown eyes. With its subtle shimmer and bronze undertones, it’s perfect for adding some depth to your eyes.

How To: Cat Eye (Winged Eyeliner and Sparkly Eye Shadow)

When it comes to cat eye, there are a few things to keep in mind. The most important is to make sure your liner is fluid and easy to apply. You want it to be as close to the lash line as possible and have a small, angled brush for the best control. If you’re using a pencil liner, sharpen it to a fine point. In terms of color, black is always a classic choice, but you can also experiment with brown, navy or gray. For this look, we added a touch of sparkle to the lid. You can do this by applying a metallic eye shadow in the center of your lid or by using a glitter liner.


Brown eyes really are beautiful and unique. We hope you found some inspiration from these looks, and we would love to hear which one is your favorite!
