Best Everyday Makeup For Brown Eyes And Brown Hair

eye makeup for brown eyes

Natural makeup for brown eyes can be in a form of many shades and experimenting with different shades is vital to finding the look that relate best to your hair style.

Women with brown eyes have dark unique looks but under bright lights, they appear to have honey tone color that tend to make your face glow.

The color I use most to bring out my eyes is green. For me, any green shade will do the job but I favor a light green over dark green.

If your eyes are dark brown, try using a blue bright color like cobalt or royal blue and use purple for eyes that have flecks of hazel in the eye.


Natural makeup for brown eyes can make your look stunning all day long. It’s minimal and effortless to put together. Check out Anne Hathaway totally cool eye makeup and matching hair color.

Smokey eye makeupbrown eyes is one of the best choices. Create a lighter shade for a elegant and formal look that will fit any occasion.

Tie up hairstyle with simple ear rings will pretty well make your glazing dark eyes stand out.


Ensure that you use soft shades on eyebrows that are lighter than the look of your natural eye color. One of the tricks is to use tinted brow gel after brushing (upwards & outwards) and defining your archers for long-wearing.

Other colors to consider for everyday makeup for brown eyes are gold, purple, blue, black, gold for a hot smoky eye.

For simplistic eye makeup ideas, keeping it plain using black shadow on the lid, brown on the crease and blend together will make a simple but gorgeous smoky eye look.

The simplest way to improve eye makeup for brown eyes without looking overly done is using a a tiny touch of concealer under your peepers and eyelids.

Wear brown or black mascara to your lashes. Try not using shadow for this look. Instead, put on some impartial gloss on lip to creat a not so heavy look.

Story time! I’ve always been into beauty and I remember begging my friends and family to let me put makeup on them at a young age. When I was in college, I worked at a mortuary as a flower rep (not as scary as it sounds! I promise!) Somehow I convinced my manager to hire one of my best friends! Hi Stella!! When we had some downtime at work, I would take out my makeup and practice on her! At the time I was not confident enough to take on clients, so I decided to go to makeup school (MUD) to become a pro artist. After I got certified, I started taking on clients and eventually got a job at @maccosmetics. It was a dream come true because I’ve always wanted to be a “MAC girl”. Soon after I started free-lancing and my bridal business started booming and I didn’t have time to do freelance work and keep my job at MAC, so I decided to follow my heart and pursue my freelance business full time. (PS! I also worked at my brothers insurance agency @gm_insurance during this period) Long story short, I’m so happy I put fear aside and followed my heart. It has opened so many incredible doors for me including my own beauty brand which is still so surreal. Follow your heart and don’t let fear stand in the way. @oprah says it best… “if you can get paid for doing what you love, every paycheck is a bonus. Give yourself the bonus of a lifetime: Pursue your passion. Discover what you love. Then do it!” Makeup Deets (bc I know you’re going to ask 😍) Foundation: @ctilburymakeup Airbrush Flawless in #7 Blush: @personacosmetics in Georgia  Eyes: #personacosmetics copper kit Lips: @kkwbeauty Nude 2.5 #Makeupinspo #Makeup #Makeup #coppermakeup #ctmakeup #maccosmetics #kkwbeauty

  • It is vital to use eyeliner pencil to improve the shape of the eyes by using blue  or violet colors. If you want to get a retro look, use a white liner pencil and line the waterline.
  • To make your eyes look bigger and lifted, apply black or natural brown color on upper lash-line and waterline.
  • Use a liquid liner in black or black pencil to line underneath the waterline, making sure to spread the line all the way to corners of your eyes to make an almond shape.
  • Use a strong color such as shimmer powder shadow in light pink or blue powdery on the lid.


Dark long hair especially brown colors make your brown peepers really pop up. A stunning dimension of caramel highlighting pretty much provide a lighter hue to complement your dark eyes.

You can also try the trendy Half up Half down hairstyle which is popular at the moment. But it’s best you give it a try and decide on the best match.


Want to enhance your face to look more attractive in appearance, try eyelash extension with makeup for your brown eyes. It work wonders without mascara.

Leaving it on overnight and cuts down our prep time in the morning is so stress-free. Whether you are going on a beach vacation or a sunny day out, surely lash extensions are here to make you look great.

I know some of our readers who are not so comfortable with lash extension and they do not have long natural lashes as well.

In this case, I suggest using a touch of mascara. You can achieve that minimal natural makeup for brown eyes with just berry-color lipstick or Korean lip tint which are soothing, light and long-wearing.

If your eyebrows are defined, pick the right amount of brow essentials to fill, shape and groom your arches.

For sparse (thin) brows, use brow pencil for filling and shaping or apply brow gel in rich brown with a Spoolie brow brush to add volume.

Precise contoured eyebrows (tattoo) is gaining popularity now but this trend may be a thing of the past over the years. It may even leave you with a permanent pigmented mess later.

However, there is this Microblading method in which the pigment is thicker and not permanent. Meaning, changing your brows shape is much simpler.

Minimal eye makeup looks natural and fresh that creates a magical appeal which cannot be ignored. It can be stunning and sophisticated in various ways if applied in a proper manner.

Whether you opt for smoky or any type of natural makeup for brown eyes, a minimal style will rock your presence everywhere you go.
