Question: What is the best makeup for dark brown eyes?
Answer: People with brown eyes generally wear colors in the brown family, but pinkish colors also look fantastic with this eye color and will give your eyes a very feminine pop of color.
When it comes to makeup for dark brown eyes, brown shades are typically better than black hues — especially when attempting a smokey eye. One of my favorite palettes for brown eyes is Urban Decay’s Naked 2 palette; it really is top notch shadow in terms of quality and color. This palette is very portable and contains everything you’ll ever need, whether you’re creating an everyday look or a smokey eye for a special occasion.
In terms of eyeliner, brown is the traditional color of choice for brown eyes. My favorite is the Starlooks eye pencil — the color is very defined, and it lasts all day without smudging.
Granted, all of these colors work for brown eyes — but honestly, I love it when people express themselves, and expressing yourself doesn’t always involve following a specific formula…it means finding the colors that suit you. My eyes are blue, but my favorite color is purple. What’s to stop me from wearing purple on my eyes? These colors are always good to have around, and they make good standbys for brown eyes — but whenever you have time, try something new! Embrace your personality through your makeup routine and show everyone exactly who you are.
