It’s very important to know your eye colour first before you invest in a product. Brown has many shades. The most common are  deep chocolate brown, honey brown, light brown, hazel brown, dark brown… you get the drift? Based on your eye colour, you can then choose a colour palette that will work for you. If you have dark brown eyes, you should totally try a smoky eye finish. For hazel ones, try purples, browns, blues and greens. For honey brown eyes, you can opt for colours like charcoal, beige, lime-green, cobalt blue.

2. Go Neutral On Them

For a minimal yet powerful look, you should definitely try playing with neutral colours. The beauty with using neutral shades is that it blends perfectly well with your eye colour. Ivory, beige, taupe, peach and even brown, are good shade choices. If you’re not an eyeshadow person, you can surely opt for eyeliners with these colours. They will do a fab job at highlighting your eyes.

3. Give White Liner A Shot

Many people are sceptical of using a white liner – they’d rather use black instead (it’s the safer option, after all). We, on the other hand, encourage you to do the opposite! If you use white liner as a base on your lower lash line, and team it up with a stronger colour like a metallic or neon tint, you’ll definitely be in for a surprise! They will make your eyes pop, and give you a very confident and bold vibe.

4. The Shimmery Touch

No matter how drab your eye makeup looks, a touch of shimmer can twist the plot. It gives your eyes that extra sparkle and helps you channel some glam. Also try metallic eyeshadow shades like black, gold, silver, brown and grey to give your face a touch of radiance. You can also apply a bit of kajal below your eyes to give them depth.

If you want to catch a certain someone’s attention, you must get your hands on cobalt blue. It’s rich, it’s vibrant and, most importantly, it grabs eyeballs. Once you use it, you will notice that it instantly draws attention to your brown eyes. The best part – this shade is not hue specific. It adds that extra dash of magic to both dark and light brown eyes, and everything in between.
