Makeup tips for brown eyes – using eyeliners
You can really create different looks simply by using the eyeliner. For example, use a dark colored eyeliner to bring more of a focus to the eyes and creating more of a dramatic look. This will be better suited for a night out. For a more natural look, use a black eyeliner, but just give it a minimal application. This is perfect for a day at the office and you won’t lose your sense of style either. Combining light pastels and a dark eyeliner will be effective. You can also use tones of pink, which would bring out the sparkle in your eye.
Makeup tips for brown eyes – know your color
Yes, it’s true – there is not only one type of brown. There are different shades and tones. Whilst it is still true that you can use a variety of hues, it will depend on how deep or light your eyes are and you should focus on something that will suit that to bring them out.
*Deep brown eyes – the darkest set of eyes and a very attractive pair as well. Eyes like these can appear so dark in some women that they can seem black. Find makeup colors which are medium to dark of different shades with lighter highlights here and there to create a contrast.
*Medium brown – This is a color which is great to be able to work with because you can use almost anything. This includes violet, mauve, purple as well as the opposite scale of things like gold, copper and bronze. Greens can also look charming. Using color subtly will work well by just lining the eyes.
*Light brown – those with golden flecks in their eyes can give off a striking look. To bring out the best, use a pale yellow as a highlighter with limited dark hues in the crease and don’t use too much brown in any area of the eye. You can use a black or a brown eyeliner.
*Ultra light brown – Your eyes may look so light that they can be mistaken to be hazel. Finding colors just darker than your skin tone will work very well. Look out for mauve and champagne colors because these will be great with eyes like these. With this you will want to find another color like bronze, dark brown or violet. Always think of finding two colors for hazel eyes. As a highlighter, you will want to look for a pink or apricot color, but don’t go for a dark eyeliner because this will be overpowering.
