Makeup Tidbits

Since brown is such a dominant and naturally prevalent eye
color in the masses, it’s important that we should know how to do the right
kind of
smokey eyes makeup to enhance the beauty of your eye color.

Eye-shadow Options?

Purple – Purple is without exception the most
flattering color for any eye , hair and skin color but it has our stamp of approval
because it happens to be in the opposite slot of the color wheel which will
make your brown eyes pop!


Blue – It is considered that blue is a difficult
shade to pull off. It gives a 70’s-era-vibe which most people do not consider
ideal for a daytime look and secondly it is a more spring-summer appropriate
color making it a seasonal and less sought after option. But only the most
successful makeup artists know that the coolness of blue pairs well with the
warmth of brown to balance the look. This color will not only open up your eyes
but make the white part of your eyes even brighter!


Silver – Who doesn’t like wearing silver eye
shadow ladies? That platinum, shimmery and
gun-metal silver hues are perfect for your chocolate brown eyes. The
cool silver color fuses with the warmth of brown eyes. But if you have dark
circles and they are not properly concealed then the silver can highlight them.


Green – If you have brown eyes then green should
be your favorite color. Since green adds contrast to the brown, it can actually
highlight the brown in your eyes.


Purple Smokey Eye Makeup Look

Primer – Add a layer of primer on both the
eyelids. A primer helps in the smooth application of the eye-shadow and helps
increase their staying power.
Eyebrows – Take an eyebrow kit and with the help
of the slanted brush use the brow wax to shape and define your eyebrows. Take
the brow powder to fill in the gaps of the brows to give a neat and well-kept
look to the face.
3.      Eye-shadow
– After your eyelids have been primed, take an eye-shadow base and sweep a
small amount all over the eyelids up to the brow bone.
4.      Sticky
Notes Trick
– This step ensures the perfect eye shadow application for all the
beginners out there. Take a sticky note and place it from the outer corner of
the eye until the end point of your eyebrows as if an imaginary line joins the
two points. This acts as the perfect guideline for your winged eyeliner look as
well as the eyeshade application.
Transition Shade – Take a peach/orange shade and
using a fluffy crease brush apply it in your crease to add dimension to your
eye. Orange is an excellent crease shade that works for all the skin tones.


6.      Depth – Take a clean MAC
217 and sweep a matte light brown shade in the crease in a C shape.
7.      Crease – Using the same
brush take a darker matte brown shade and work your way in your crease as well
as on the outer portion of the eye creating a winged look.
Dark Purple Eye shades – Now take a dark purple
eyeshade and concentrate its application on the outer portion of the eye. Using
a blending brush blend all the shades together.
Eyelids– Take a lighter purple shade and press it
on the center of the eye.


10.  Eyeliner
– Take off the sticky notes and use black liquid eyeliner to trace the wing
left behind by the tape. This gives your eyes an elongated look.
Mascara – Apply two coats of mascara for
voluminous and lengthened lashes.


I hope these tips will give you the perfect smokey eye look
with your brown eyes.
