Glamourizing Browns With Colour

When I started to do my eye makeup today, I knew I wanted to use brown eyeshadows. I started off by applying a lighter brown eyeshadow to the middle of the eyelid & then moved on to applying a darker brown shade on the inner & outer thirds of the lid & above the crease. I could've just left it there & it would have been a fairly simple look, but I decided to glamourize the look by adding colour. The pink goes well with the browns & the blue brought the look to life.

The look would be incomplete without bold, dark eyebrows & thick eyeliner. & of course, false eyelashes added to the whole glam factor as well.

In the picture below, the sun was shining through the window, which made me frown & look like I'm angry. I thought I'd include the picture since you can kind of see how the eye makeup would look on someone with hooded eyes. You have to remember that your eye shape might be different than mine so try to figure out what works best for you!

Products Used:

  • Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Original [lid till under the brow + tear duct area + lower lashline]
  • NYX Cosmetics' Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk [lid till under the brow + tear duct area + lower lashline]

This is a lovely look, I love the blue.

I usually pair blues with browns as well. It's still bold but the brown mutes it a bit.
