It’s no coincidence that a popular song exists in celebration of your eye colour. Those with brown eyes are blessed to be able to pull off a range of shades that bring out depth and dimension and leave onlookers mesmerised. But which eyeshadow colours set your look apart from the rest? Let’s find out.
Pairing brown with brown is a super effective way of achieving a more natural, fresh-faced look if you’re not about those nude shades. It’s subtle enough to blend seamlessly with your everyday makeup look, but bold enough for people to notice you’ve made an effort. Try NYX Professional Makeup Hot Singles Eyeshadow in Top Notch for its lightweight formula that lasts longer.
You may have never considered reaching for this shade before reading this but trust us when we say it’s worth it! We love this colour for its ability to bring out the truest brown colour in your irises, instantly brightening your peepers. We love the purple shade in Maybelline’s Diamond Glow Eyeshadow that’s enriched with sparkling pigments.
An army-green shade is sure to pick up any flecks of colour in your eyes and does a great job enhancing them. This colour also allows you to opt for a darker sultrier look when paired with black eyeliner, or a softer appearance when used on its own. Urban Decay’s Eyeshadow in Mildew is perfect for its suede-like smoothness and blendability.
Gold is a shade that works for many eye colours but particularly brown, because of its ability to bring out a sort of twinkle in your eye. It’s even more effective for those with darker skin tones as you can really appreciate its shine. Our top pick is Yves Saint Laurent Couture Mono in Argane for all-day wear.
If you find yourself a more advanced colour wheel, you’ll notice that blue is on the opposite spectrum to brown which is why the shade will work perfectly for you. Be sure to opt for a navy blue colour though as it’ll complement your eyes the best. Try NYX Professional Makeup Hot Singles Eye Shadow in Galactic for an intense colour that’ll leave a lasting impression.
