The classic smokey eye never goes out of style and suits everyone. Traditionally, smokey eyes are renowned as a gorgeous nighttime makeup look. For daytime wear, I recommend you choose neutral colors for brown eyes to obtain a natural look and make your eyes appear bigger. Green eye makeup is one of those perfect pairings that goes hand in hand with brown eyes.
If your eyes have slight specks of hazel or light brown in them, purple manages to highlight these aspects. Take particular care to blend the color into the crease of the eyes too. To define the crease, apply the brown shimmer eyeshadow along the crease. Highlight the arches of your brows and the inner corner of your eyes to make your eyes appear bigger and more awake.
Using black liquid eyeliner, line the upper lash line by drawing a thick slanted line all the way from the inner corner of the eye, creating a cat eye shape. The perfect eye makeup for brown eyes consists of deep shades of brown, plum and purple, dark blues, gold and champagne, green, mint, moss, vanilla and peach.
The deep natural color of brown eyes permits you to wear bright colors for a playful look and even the darker tones that other women have to pass on. The key is to avoid errors in highlighting with the wrong hues or contouring with tones that are too strong and overpower your natural brown eyes.
First I am going to press this shade into my inner corner, using a smaller liner brush and then blend the color out over my eyelid about half way. With your eyeshadow blending brush, blend out the eyeshadows properly. Then I am going to use the shade Abyss from the palette, and go in with a super tiny brush and line my lower lashes with the eyeshadow.
Curl your lashes and apply two coats of mascara. Now fill in the eyelid with gold-colored eye shadow, extending the color into the cat eye shape on the outer corner. Using your eyeshadow brush, dab it on the inside corner of your eyelid on both your upper and lower lids.
Apply highlighter on the apples of your cheeks and under the arch of your eyebrows to create a healthy, natural-looking glow. Apply gold eyeshadow towards the inner corner of your eyelid. Use a primer and cover your eyelid with a nude eyeshadow. Step 7: To add more drama to your look, apply black gel eyeliner to the waterline (Inglot AMC Gel classic brown smokey eye Eyeliner #77).

Avoid using more than two coats of mascara so that you don't create unsightly clumps and lumps in your lashes. Be sure to blend it at the inside corners with your highlighter, so that there isn't a harsh divide between the two colors. Use a smudging brush to create a soft, smokey effect on the lower lashline.
Using a flat brush, apply nude shimmer eyeshadow. Gently apply a hint of brown eyeshadow in the crease and towards the outer corner of your eyes. You can blend this color upwards beyond your crease and into your highlighter if you want. Curl your lashes and apply two coats of mascara to finish.
Make sure that the darkest point still remains at the outside corner of your lash line. You should notice the color on your lids blending gradually into the pink on your crease. To define your crease, use a flat brush and add some brown eyeshadow into the crease area.
Whatever shade of brown you happen to fall under, rest assured that purple eye shadow will do the trick for you. Cream and liquid eyeliners give a very smooth finish, while a pencil eyeliner gives a softer blended look. Creativity goes a long way when it comes to smokey eye makeup.
