The classic smokey eye never goes out of style and suits everyone. Create a wing along your upper lashline using a blue eyeliner. To begin, apply primer or a concealer on your eyelids. Next up, apply a shimmery shadow in soft rose pink into the crease of the eye and slightly above it. Blend lightly into the crease, ensuring a gradual mix of the two shades.
Brighten the eye by applying the lighter shell eyeshadow all over the eyelid. What is great about this look is that you can amplify it by contouring with the proper eyeliner shades to give depth and create a more intense look for the evening. A few coats of mascara, either black or dark brown, perfectly finish off the look.
Using black liquid eyeliner, line the upper lash line by drawing a thick slanted line all the way from the inner corner of the eye, creating a cat eye shape. The perfect eye makeup for brown eyes consists of deep shades of brown, plum and purple, dark blues, gold and champagne, green, mint, moss, vanilla and peach.
For my eyeshadow, I'm using the Jaclyn Hill Morphe Palette. The same should be done for the color that has been placed underneath your eyes. Apply a dab of metallic highlighter to the inside corner of your eye as well as right on the brow bone. Fill the remaining area with some shimmery gold eyeshadow.
Traditionally, smokey eyes are renowned as a gorgeous nighttime makeup look. For daytime wear, I recommend you choose neutral colors for brown eyes to obtain a natural look and make your eyes appear bigger. Green eye makeup is one of those perfect pairings that goes hand in hand with brown eyes.
Using the same eyeshadow, define your lower lashline. With a black kohl pencil, define your lower waterline and lashline, tracing a wing with the pencil. She shows you where to put each shade and even how to perfect the winged eyeliner technique. There are endless ways to do a bang-up job with your eyes and we have some of the best eye makeup looks lined up for you.
Line your upper lashline with a liquid eyeliner. Apply a single coat to your bottom lashes to define them without giving yourself raccoon-eyes. Using a flat brush, apply the peach eyeshadow around the crease of your eyelid, as seen in the image. Next, apply a light brown shade of eyeshadow to just the outer corner of classic brown makeup the eyes.
Apply the deep brown eyeshadow towards the outer corner of your eye and in the crease area. Now cover the gold shadow with a burgundy eye shadow going up above the crease and into the corner of the eye, creating a subtle cat-eye shape. Take a black kajal eye pencil and trace a thick line all along the upper lash line.
Best of all, the colors perfectly match natural brown coloring. Clean your eyeshadow brush by washing it with face soap or shampoo and water, or by spritzing it with an antibacterial makeup brush cleanser. Avoid black eyeliner and mascara for daytime wear and settle for dark brown ones or playful violets.
Keep the rest of your makeup to the very minimum as this is a pretty heavy smokey eye. Next, follow the line back over the crease of the eye towards the inner corner. The intensity of natural brown eyes varies from person to person, so it's important to tell which colors look outstanding on you and which ones make your eyes look dull.
You can try this look even if you have dark eyes. I'm not trying to be mean, but I would love to see when you make some kind of mistake well applying eyeshadow, lashes, liner or even mascara. Use the same eyeshadow on the lower lid, gently blending it with the medium brown color.
Use your smaller ended brush and blend into the outer corners of the eye and use a few swipes over your crease in order to blend the colors together. Still using the same kohl pencil, color in the eyelid area you just stenciled. If you add eyeliner on your bottom lashes, only bring it as far in as the dark color goes on your lower lashes.
