  • For a twist, try eyeliner shades in bright yellows, lime greens, pearl whites, glazed golds.

  • Black mascara is the gold standard of any eye color, but especially brown eyes. A silky or polished black mascara (yummy!) makes your eyes look stunning. Of course, dark brown mascaras work extremely well for brown eyes and is complimentary but green or blue mascara can also work.

    Some darker mustard yellows are good eyeshadow colors for brown eyes but vomit yellow (for example) would NOT be a good choice! Be selective! You just have to play around with the colors you use. I have brown eyes and like the way pink or rose looks with my dark complexion, but some women with brown eyes don’t wear pink well. This is especially if you’ve got yellow undertones in your complexion. Pinks work well for me because I have more of an olive complexion.

    Since your big brown eyes look great with many shades, think outside the makeup box more often! The art of makeup application should not become a chore for you! Makeup colors for brown eyes is no exception!
