3 Factors to Consider When Choosing Eyeshadow for Brown Eyes

Before selecting an eyeshadow palette for your brown eyes, consider the following factors:

Eye color:

Different eyeshadow colors can alter the appearance of your eye color. Thus, you should consider the shade of your brown eyes when selecting eyeshadow colors. Darker brown eyes pair with warmer tones, as these colors brighten the eyes. On the other hand, lighter brown eyes can handle dark eyeshadow colors.

Skin tone refers to your skin color, and the undertone is the shade within that color, just below your skin's surface. There are three types of undertones: warm, cold, and neutral. For skin tones with a cooler hue, choose a taupe or ivory eyeshadow as a blend base. For warmer skin tones, use pink or brown shades, such as mauve or beige. Neutral skin tones can play around with a combination of these colors to create a look that appears most natural. Learn how to identify your skin's undertone.
