Today I will be writing a post about which colors pop up brown eyes. Mostly Indian people either have black or brown eyes (that’s what I have observed more) and the rest have grey/green eyes (aaah lucky people ). So This post is for people who are blessed with Brown eyes, because they can sport all those messy brown/black smokey eye makeup
I have seen people with brown eyes looking awesome with smudged kohl ( a black is always an exception ) , so brown is a definite yes but a no if you have dark circles .Okay ! lets see which colors are best suited to brown eyes

Brown Eyeshadow For Brown Eyes
Yes the brown eyeshadow/eyeliner( Check 4 different style of eyeliners tutorial ) suits a lot provided if you know how to work with brown e/s. It’s not only for brown eyes, but because brown is a li’l tricky shade, if you can blend and control the amount then a brown e/s can be your best pal
Beginner’s Tip: – Try placing brown e/s along the lash line and smudge it with a pencil brush. Similarly you can use a brown kohl pencil, smudge it and set with a brown e/s. Don’t forget to put in kohl to define your eyes and use lots of kajal.
Green Eyeshadow For Brown Eyes:-
Olive/Lime Greens look best color on brown eyes, They compliment the earthy tone of your eyes so if you have seen Ana supporting all those lime/olive green then you bet it, because she has brown eyes and they just bring out the best of her eyes . You can of course try the teals and other greens, but I feel that olives and limes and acid greens just suit brown eyes the most.
Beginner’s Tip: – A little amount of either olive green or lime green near the tear duct area, or the center of the eye can make your eyes attractive. Try using a darker color like a black/brown or even teal green on the outer area to get a smokey look.

Blue Eyeshadow For Brown Eyes:-
Slate blue’s or charcoal blue’s or petrol blue’s.. any blue that is vivid and unusual for e.g MAC Deep Truth or something like Lakme Astral Blue or something like Coastal Scents Night Swim mineral eyeshadow will enhance the brown eyes.
Beginner’s Tip: – Use these colors either in form of eyeshadows or eyepencils or even mascara’s.
Plum Eyeshadows For Brown Eyes:-
Plums-à another variant of Purples .. plums are also one of the best suited eyeshadows for brown eyes.
Beginner’s Tip: – A dark eggplant purple combined with a light silver or lilac shade would look best as the silver/lilac will highlight the inner corners and the purple on the rest of the lid would harmonize the whole look without going over the board. You can also put some shimmery eyeshadow if you want.
Peaches & Champagne Eyeshadow For Brown Eyes:-
These eyeshadows work well with brown eyes, and work great if used as an eyeshadow or to highlight.
Beginner’s Tip: – Sweep the e/s either on whole lid or in inner corner or to highlight the brown bone. Best used if sweeped across the lower lash line, this will widen up your eyes.
The don’ts For Brown Eyes:-
- Please Avoid yellow on its own.. if you’re planning to wear yellow, then pair it with some alternate dark eyeshadows.
Concluding the post, I would say that this is just a simple guide post, where you can atleast try a few eyeshadows that will suit your brown eyes. If you are adventurous enough, then you can try almost any eyeshadow. But take care for brown eyeshadow, if you aren’t that good in blending part, then either use less amount of brown e/s or skip it. Hope this post helped you J Please drop in your comments to share the color you believe works best for brown eyes!!
P.S :- All the references have been penned down according to my own experience and observation, also I have studied Ana’s eye makeup posts because she has lovely dark brown eyes
