Go Retro Blue

Think blue eyeshadow is old fashioned? Think again! Shades of blue are actually some of the best picks of eyeshadow for brown eyes. Whether you go for a rich navy tone, a vibrant sapphire or a bright aqua, blue is a lovely contrast to brown eyes. We adore the glo-minerals Eye Shadow in Ocean and the Jeweled Eye Pencil in Cobalt. Pro tip: While some rules are made to be broken, it’s usually a good idea to choose only one area of your face to focus on. If you go for bright blue eyeshadow and a bold red lipstick, you will overwhelm your face. Opt for natural shades on your lips and let your eyes steal the show.

Sparkle with Jewel Tones

For a classically beautiful look, go for jewel tones in your eye makeup. Warm jewel tones will add depth to your look while keeping it office appropriate. For a super versatile kit that will work for every day and every occasion, we are crazy for the glo-minerals Jeweled Eye Crayon Box. With a rich, matte brown crayon alongside three shimmery earth tones, you can create a million and one looks with these shades.

Purple Eggplant Shades

Eggplant is another go-to colour. This ultra-flattering shade is a perfect pick for dark eyes. It’s a great colour of eyeshadow for brown eyes and you’ll also want to be on the lookout for rich purple eyeliner and mascara. Try the glo-minerals Eye Shadow in eggplant or Cream Stay Shadow Stick in Concord for a show stopping look. Pro tip: When you go for a bold shade, don’t go overboard with matching cosmetics. Eggplant shadow, eggplant liner and eggplant mascara can overwhelm your eyes. If you go for eggplant eyeshadow, opt for a black or brown mascara and liner.

The Metal Scene

Metallic shades were made for brown eyes. Go for copper and gold shadows for a smouldering look. Gold shades like the striking glo-minerals Eye Shadow in Twinkle will make your eyes sparkle. Try out a metallic smoky eye for evening or just add a subtle swipe over your lash line for a daytime-friendly dash of colour. If you want a more subtle style, go for a copper shade. Start creating your look by adding a layer of chocolate shadow then add a second layer of copper to make your eyes pop.
