Colored shadows can be tricky to work with, but you can’t go wrong with shades of brown and copper since it works well with practically every skin tone and eye color. Browns are great for everyday wear since the natural shadows of your lids are a brownish red. Eyes are the first thing people notice; make them clean, defined, beautiful and not too distracting. You want people to notice you, not your heavy makeup so here’s a way to give your eyes that bit of pop it needs without being overdone. This is a great basic everyday look that can be changed up easily and worn for any occasion.
Step 1: Start with clean eyes and apply primer all over the lid up to your brow bone. Elf Primer is a great alternative to Urban Decay’s Primer Potion. For only 1 dollar compared to a 20 dollar primer, it’s a must have.
Step 2: Apply a red toned brown shadow all over the lid up to the crease with a wide blending brush. Mac’s Brown Script is matte and has great pigmentation with no fallout. (more…)

Along with purple, green is said to be the most complimentary shade for us brown eyed girls. Because of this, I have created a green smoky eye that is perfect for summer because it has a touch of gold under the waterline. These shades work perfectly with one another to create a summery look that is so beautiful with brown eyes.

Purple is my absolute favorite color to play up with my eye makeup – and the color beautifully compliments all brown-eyed girls. Because it’s summer, I like to incorporate bright purples. I also wanted to achieve a natural and wearable look, so I decided to use this bright purple “pop” only in my crease as opposed to all over the lid.
