Although we’re firm believers that everyone should rock any makeup color they want to, there’s no denying that there are certain brown eye makeup shades that are especially stunning. Specifically, some shades of eyeshadow for brown eyes—from amethyst and bronze to rust and teal—can work wonders to brighten and emphasize your dark eyes. Knowing the right makeup looks for brown eyes can really come in handy for creating depth and dimension and, in turn, make your eyes seem even more alluring than they already are.
To help you pump up the wow factor of your beauty look, we’re sharing the must-have eyeshadow colors for brown eyes, along with eyeliner and even mascara to match. All you have to do is click through to find out how to play up your peepers!
Amethyst looks fabulous when incorporated into makeup looks for brown eyes. And the even better news is that so will just about any other purple hue. Just think of the possibilities! From deep eggplant to pale lilac, the cool shade can help bring out the deepest brown color in your irises for an otherworldly eye look. What’s more, the contrast of the purple and brown will instantly make your eyes pop for a brighter appeal. Go all in with a purple eyeshadow look for brown eyes, or keep it subtle with a swipe of purple liner.

One of the most basic, yet most versatile shades in eye makeup, bronze is a perfect option for adding dimension to your eyes. With just a swipe of this eyeshadow color for brown eyes you’ll be able to make your eyes dazzle like no other without looking overly done-up. That’s the thing about bronze—it’s part of the nude color family, which means it’s natural-looking with just a hint of metallic glam. We like to think of that as the best of both worlds!

Are your brown eyes super dark? The best eyeshadow for brown eyes on the dark end of the spectrum is a bright, royal blue. Help bring dark brown eyes to life with a rich cobalt blue color that will accentuate the color of your irises for a look that’s completely eye-catching.

There’s just something about a nude smoky eye with gold accents that brings out the natural sparkle in brown eyes—especially if you have golden pigments in your irises. With just a touch of gold eye shadow (or even eyeliner), you’ll be able to emphasize the tiniest hints of gold and hazel in your eyes for a brown hue that shines like no other.

You may not have thought of pairing this dark hue with brown eyes, but it can actually be a really great option for your eye color. Instead of reaching for black and ending up with an eye makeup look that’s a tad too harsh for your coloring, reach for navy pigments, and use the edgy, yet not over-the-top, shade to create a cat eye or out-of-the-box eyeshadow look for brown eyes.
Product picks: L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eyeshadow in Grand Bleu and L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Midnight Blue
Warm reddish-brown shades are yet another option from the color wheel that deserve to be considered for playing up your brown eyes—the warmth of the hue will really liven up your look. Whether you go for a monochrome application or add it into a smoky eye, you simply can’t go wrong with rust.

Want to take the contrast to the next level? Trace your waterline in teal—or maybe even go a step further and apply an eye shadow in the same shade. This seriously bright color will pair beautifully with dark eyes to create a look that’s sure to earn everyone’s gaze.
