Makeup for brown eyes and dark hair

Brown eyes and dark hair are an amazing combination. To work with these features a woman needs to apply some makeup skills.

When it comes to eye shadow, you want your eyes to pop. Use a light base color all over your eyelid, then use a darker color in the crease of your eye. If you want to add more drama, apply a shimmery highlighter on top of the darker shade.

Mascara for Brown Eyes and Dark Hair

You can’t go wrong with mascara. Just make sure that it’s black or brown so that it matches your hair and skin tone. You can also try adding false lashes if you want a more dramatic look.

Brows for Brown Eyes and Dark Hair

To get the best brows, start by brushing them upward with an eyebrow brush. Then apply some concealer where needed (such as below your brows), followed by powder to set everything into place. Finally, fill in any gaps using an angled brush and a brow pencil in a shade slightly lighter than your natural hair color—this will help give them more definition!

Eye Makeup Tutorials For Brown Eyes

Since there are various shades even in brown, let’s get into the nitty gritty details for the different shades.

Eye Makeup For Dark Brown Eyes

1. Plum Eyeshadow

Plum shades complement dark brown eyes so well. They have a very earthy feel and look absolutely beautiful during the autumn. I can imagine pairing this with a lovely mustard colored sweater with some jeans and boots.

  • Dark purple eyeshadow
  • Eyeliner

How To Get This Look
  1. Use a brown shade with pink undertones as a transition shade in the crease.
  2. Apply a plum shade at the middle and inside of the eyelid.
  3. Apply a dark purple in the outer corner and blend it out.
  4. Apply eyeliner and mascara.

2. Dark Green Eyeshadow

Dark green is such a pretty color, and it looks gorgeous on those with dark brown eyes. It looks incredibly enchanting. It would look great in matte or shimmer. If you’re going out during the  day, a matte option would be better. If it’s for a party at night, don’t be afraid to reach out for the shimmer!

You Will Need

3. Gray Eyeshadow

Gray, a softer option for black. I have dark brown eyes, and I can tell from personal experience that when I’m reaching for a dark yet subtle look, gray is the way to go. Add in a winged liner, and it’ll totally complete your look. For a little more detailing, you can add a line of silver glitter under the wing.

You Will Need
  • Soft brown eyeshadow
  • Gray eyeshadow
  • Black eyeliner
  • Silver eyeliner
  • Mascara
How To Get This Look

4. Gold Eyeshadow

Black and gold go so well hand in hand! The gold eyeshadow is a beautiful contrast to the darkness of the black. The reason why gold works so well on brown eyes is that the pigments help to bring out the tiny flecks of gold that are present in brown eyes.

You Will Need
  • Brown eyeshadow
  • Gold eyeshadow
  • Black gel liner
  • Mascara
How To Get This Look
  1. Apply the brown eyeshadow into the crease and slightly extend it into the brow bone. Blend this well.
  2. Next, apply a thick winged liner.
  3. Apply the gold to the rest of the eyelid and make sure the gold and the black parts are blended well.
  4.  Now, apply the concealer in the crease, using a clean liner brush. It’s crucial that this line is very defined since this is a cut crease makeup look. Follow the line of the wing and wing out the concealer well.
  5. Apply mascara and smoke out the bottom lashes with the brown and you’re done!
