With so many eye shadows on the shelves, it can be difficult to decide which product is best for you. On top of that, there are so many colors to choose from! If you have dark brown eyes, you may be wondering what the best option is to bring out their beautiful color. Whether you’re a fan of following the latest beauty trends or prefer natural-looking eye shadow, here are a few shades you may want to try for your next makeup look


For those ladies who have dark brown eyes, hues of purple can really highlight their color. While you may think purple is a little outside of your comfort zone, this color was made for your beautiful eyes! Here are a few of our favorite purple eyeshadows to check out:

L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Perpetual Purple: This eye shadow features a velvety formula that is both fade-resistant and waterproof. We love this shade because of its rich, traditional purple color. And not to be forgotten, this eyeshadow also comes in two other purple shades worth checking out, Purple Priority which has blue undertones and Smoldering Plum which has pink undertones.

L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Pocket Palette Eye Shadow in Violet Amour: We love this small eye shadow palette because it’s small enough to fit in your pocket! There are four unique shades that give you the opportunity to do a bold purple smoky eye. The multi-finish palette gives you three shimmery finishes and one matte shadow.


Gold is another shade that is known to bring out the warmth of your brown eye color. Not only will it accent your hue of brown, but it also gives you the opportunity to create a rich, glamorous look. Some of our best gold eye shadows are as follows:

L’Oréal Paris Infallible Crushed Foils Metallic Eye Shadow in Gilded Gold: This product is the dream when it comes to gold eye shadow. With its metallic formula, it will illuminate your eyes and allow you to create a bold, luxurious look to match its color.

L’Oréal Paris Infallible Eye Shadow Crayon in Everlasting Gold: This eye shadow is a must due to its easiness to apply and small packaging. The crayon provides highly pigmented vibrant color that can last up to 24 hours. This eye shadow can also double as an eye liner. 


Of course, one of the best way to compliment your eyes is to wear a color that coordinates with theirs. Neutral, brown-toned eye shadows are the perfect way for you to accentuate your eyes in a subtle way that you can wear every day.

L’Oréal Paris Paradise Enchanted Scented Eye Shadow Palette: Not only does this palette give you 12 neutral shades, it is also infused with a fruit scent that will have you reaching for it again and again. While some of the eye shadows in this palette steer from browns and go to coral and ivory colors, the warm tones of each shade will bring out the warmth of your eye color. With shimmering pearl and matte finishes, the palette gives you plenty of options to switch up your look.

L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eye Shadow in Cafe Au Lait: This gorgeous shade of rich chocolate brown will match the dark brown of your eyes. The eye shadow uses gel to powder technology for easy application. The vibrant color, velvety texture, and matte finish make this shadow stand out. Another shade to consider is Pain Au Chocolat. This shadow is a slightly lighter brown with a shimmer finish.
