We all know there are no rules when it comes to makeup! You can use whatever shades, formulas, or textures your lil’ heart desires, but there’s an art when it comes to deciding how to choose the best eyeshadow for every eye color. For all our brown-eyed babes out there, choosing the best eyeshadow shades can make them look like the rarest gems of all! Not sure how to choose the perfect shade of eyeshadow? Keep reading to see what shades you should be wearing when you wanna play up those gorgeous brown eyes!
Best Eyeshadow Shades for Brown Eyes
Brown eyes are far from boring, they sparkle with specks of gold, copper and warm honey – plus there are tons of shades complement those hues perfectly! These super-flattering shades will help those rich brown eyes realize their incredibly sultry and alluring potential.
Want a mesmerizing gaze? Purple is the best eyeshadow color to make your eyes pop! Purples are universally flattering… but they look even better against brown eyes. As shown in the color wheel (we said there was an art behind this), brown and purple are contrasting colors so it really makes brown eyes pop while also making the whites of your eyes appear brighter, making you look more awake (sign me up!). Yes, it’s a bold shade but don’t be intimidated because you can also use purple eyeliner pencil – purple’s make for some seriously eye-catching looks!
Blues & Teal Eyeshadow
Blue eyeshadows are a brown-eyed girl’s best friend! It’s not only a good eyeshadow for brown eyes, it’s one of the best shades for brown eyes because it brings out their true smoldering beauty! Although blues might seem intense, they really let brown eyes shine. Try a sultry and smokey eye with different hues of blue and even teals – trust us, you’ll never want to wear another eyeshadow shade ever again! The ’80s called… they wanted their blue eyeshadow back but they saw it looked better on you 😉.
Warm Brown Eyeshadows
Warm brown eyeshadows really help to brighten brown eyes because they bring out any yellow or gold flecks while intensifying your eye color. Pop on some warm-toned shadows to bring all the boys to the yard, because your eyes will be looking like a delicious chocolate and honey milkshake sprinkled with gold (is that a real milkshake? because we want 2!).
Every babe with brown eyes needs a good orange eyeshadow in their life! Orange tones will bring out the yellow tones from those dazzling peepers as well as make them appear more awake – plus its still summer and you can create really pretty summer eye looks! Looking to maximize the potency of your eyes? Add a yellow gold to the mix to emphasize that natural eye sparkle!
