Welcome to the second installment of Eye Palettes To Enhance Your Eye Color. To see the palettes for hazel eyes click here. This post focuses on brown palettes to make brown eyes pop! If you are a brown eyed girl, then you know that bronze (and even golden green) shadows accentuate your warm browns.
After consulting with many makeup mavens and experts, I've discovered that it takes more than just one color to make your brown eyes beautiful and brilliant. The perfect palette is hard to come by, but I've found a few that get the job done well. Each of these include three to four shades of just the right browns and bronzes to perfectly enhance your eyes.
The lightest neutral shade is the accent color that should go just beneath your brow-bone, the medium color should be swept all over your lid and the darkest gets applied to the crease. Stay tuned for more palettes later this week to suit your eye color!
Very Sexy® Makeup Mosaic Eye Shadow in Eye Contact, $18, is a palette of four shades that can be worn alone or layered together to create a stunning, eye-opening effect that's all your own. I suggest using the lightest color in the v of your inner eye to add a special bright sparkle to your beautiful brown eyes.
For two more brilliant brown eye shadow palettes,
Bare Escentuals Blendable Eye Collection in Tahitian Sunset Glimpses, $36, is a collection of three separate eye shadows packaged together especially for brown eyes! The shadows are super light, transparent and they glide on silky smooth.
