Of course brown eye makeup falls into those basic makeup and for the same reason I will be sharing the basic tips and how to, about the brown makeup.

To know tips for brown eye makeup and how to apply brown eye shadow, continue reading.

How To Apply Brown Eyeshadow

Before sharing the makeup tips for brown eyes, I wish to share on how to apply the most common and loved eyeshadow shade i.e. brown. This is the eye makeup that I am wearing in today’s FOTD. Brown eyeshadow is a decent and neutral color which will suit all complexions. Not too vibrant and not too dramatic. It is perfect for all occasions. It suits woman of all age and will give a graceful eye look on them. Brown smokey eye is considered really classic and sensuous and it will beat any vibrant shade any given day, and a brown eye shadow is great for both day & night time looks, so just a little variation and your eye look is good to go from day to night with minimal efforts.

2 Here is a step by step tutorial on how to apply a brown eye shadow.

First of all, apply an eye primer over the crease of the eye. This will make the brown shade standout perfectly and also stay for a long time.

Now with an angular eye brush gently apply brown eye shadow from the outer corner of the yes towards the inner eye crease.


You can apply a light beige eye shadow from the inner corner of the eye to highlight it well. I have applied a slightly golden highlighter to highlight the inner corners.

Now apply the same brown shadow on the lower lash line from the outer corner with gentle strokes to create a smokey look. If you want an intense brown eye look, apply the brown eye shadow all over the upper lid leaving the brow bone for a light beige shadow for highlighting it beautifully. Now apply a black pencil liner over the upper lash line and smudge it outwards with a smudging brush. In my FOTD I have applied a black liquid eye liner instead and have applied it n winged style.

Apply mascara and curl your lashes.

In my FOTD for my eyes I have used Coastal Scents Revealed Palette 2, which is a popular dupe of Urban Decay Naked 3 palette. I love this palette and reach out to this for my daily eye makeup.

For lips I have used the Chambor Extreme Matte Long Wear Lip Color in shade Exotic Fuchsia which is a cool toned hot fuchsia shade and it is quid bright and bold looking shade and makes complexion glowing! I quite like my new hair look with this makeup look, what do you guys say, did it look good?
