Brown eyes are the most common eye colour in the world. From honey to hazel, caramel and dark brown; getting creative with your eye makeup can really make them shine. Here’s how I helped our client, Kaila, intensify her brown eyes and refresh her overall makeup in a few easy steps.
While black eyeliner is a classic go-to option for most, why not consider a two-toned graphic liner instead. On Kaila, I started with a thin navy-blue eyeliner on her upper lid and winged it out for a little fun. I then followed up by drawing on a pretty hue of turquoise blue, starting from the inner corner of the eye to middle of the eye lid. It still comes across as a classic look but with a twist.
• For warm-brown and hazel eyes, try shades of purple, violet, olive-green and yellow.
• For intense contrast, select vibrant green, teal and neon-coloured eyeliners
• For soft and romantic glow, select shades of warm-browns, coppers and gold.
After applying her graphic eyeliner, I wanted to touch up the rest of her makeup to give her a more polished finish. I dabbed on a bit of concealer under her eyes to brighten them. I then did some spot touch ups where needed, followed by a hint of bronzer and blush to warm up her complexion. Finally, I applied a nude-peach lipstick to compliment her blue liner to give an understated and demure result.
