The classic smokey eye never goes out of style and suits everyone. Use nude eyeshadow at the center of your eyelid. As someone who has always gone light when it comes to makeup, I didn't master the smokey eye until well into my college years. If you have golden flecks in your eyes, remember to highlight using yellow-based shadows or champagne, an all-time favorite of makeup artists.
For romantic, flirty eyelashes, apply The Falsies Push Up Angel Mascara from root to tip in a sweeping motion. Sweep the highlighter underneath your eyes a bit on the inside corner. In this tutorial, I show you how easy it is to achieve a classic, brown smokey eye.
You can also combine the black liner with a different color of eyeliner if you wish to. If you want a smooth cat-eye look, bring your eyeliner from the inside corner lash line toward the end of your eyebrow. The goal is for your eyeshadow to get gradually lighter from your lashes to your brows.
Featuring affordable eyeshadows from the brand Makeup Geek, I have gone for a neutral brown shade selection. As with all eye makeup looks , apply a nude primer all over your eyelids to set the eyeshadows and make sure the effect lasts all day long. Using the same technique as for a classic smoky eye, use your lightest shade of eyeshadow on the inside corners of your eyes and directly under your eyebrow, above your crease.
Also, use this to define the outer corners of your lower lashline. Again, blend the dark color into the light gold and pink. The darkest part should always be the point at the upper edge of your lash line. Any brown-eyed ladies are unaware of the different ways to use makeup in order to make their eyes pop.
Curl your lashes and apply two coats of mascara. Now fill in the eyelid with gold-colored eye shadow, extending the color into the cat eye shape on the outer corner. Using your eyeshadow brush, dab it on the inside corner of your eyelid on both your upper and lower lids.
With a combination of neutrals, here is a color palette that will make you fall in love with your brown eyes. It should be the darkest near the roots of your lashes, and then blend upwards toward your crease. Blues and purples make brown eyes pop, and you can add in gold as a highlight to the purple and blue.
Using a flat brush, smoothen the lines out evenly and blend the color from the center of your eye towards the outer corners. Choose a sparkly metallic finish for a night out or, for a more subdued daytime look, olive green matte eyeshadow is just stunning. Now, I'm going to move onto the shade called Buns, and with this color I am going to blend it into my crease as well, over the other colors.
Create a subtle wing on just the outer corner of your upper lashline. Choosing the perfect eye makeup for brown eyes means adapting to the occasion and deciding which of the many makeup tips and ideas fit the function. This means that with a pair of hazel-hued peepers, most colors of eye shadow naturally suit your eye color.
Next, pick the lightest shade and apply it on the inner corner of your eyes and below your eyebrows' arch (on top of the highlighter you applied earlier). Step 2: Define your eyebrows with your favorite brow product (Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in Ebony), and then prep your lids for the eye makeup applying an eyeshadow primer.
Apply the copper eyeshadow on your crease and the rest of the eyelid. You should use a dark brown, a nude and a white eyeshadow and make sure you blend it all well. Fill in your crease with a subtle hint of the soft makeup for WOC brown eyeshadow and blend this towards the outer corner of your eye.
This style keeps the eyeshadow at a light nude shade until it introduces a darker shade right at the outer corner. Using a thin brush, trace a wing from your upper lashline that connects to the crease line (it looks like a leaf), as seen in the image. These usually come in a nude base color and help to prepare the eyes and set the skin for the darker colors to come.
