Tips for bringing out your baby browns:

  • Wear colors opposite of brown on the color wheel- those would be blues, teals, greens, and purples
  • If your eyes are hazel instead of deep brown, make them look almost green by wearing green eyeshadow
  • Yellow is not the best color as it brings out the yellow in some brown eyes
  • Applying blue eyeliner in the waterline adds nice contrast to the eyes and makes the whites of your eyes even brighter
  • Some brown eyed babes can wear pink eyeshadows, but the deeper or brighter pinks are a bit more flattering.
  • Since many brown eyed babes also have brown or black hair, wearing brown eyeshadow can be too drab against the face.  If you must wear brown eyeshadow, play up the lips with a brighter color

So that’s it for this look. I hope you like this look for making your baby brown eyes POP! :-) Until next time stay happy and healthy!
