Brown Makeup for Brown Eyes

That’s right, brown shades can bring out brown eyes even more, even though they are the same colour. The combination of the two intensifies eye colour, making it the perfect everyday eyeshadow to wear. We love using matte brown shades in the crease of our eyelids to add depth to your eye makeup effortlessly. Add antiqued amber tones to bring out golden hues of your eye colour for mesmerising date night makeup. For an alternative to the traditional black kohl, a brown eyeliner can add subtle definition to your eye makeup.
