What are the Best Eyeshadow Colors for Brown Eyes?
Because brown is a neutral color, brown-eyed ladies are lucky; they have a lot of color options.
As with all eye colors, the best color for brown eyes is going to be a complimentary color; they will make your eyes pop.
Complimentary colors; teals, blues, purples, and pinks look great on brown eyes.
Neutrals like chocolates, coppers, taupes, and bronzes look smashing as well.
Teals and Purples look especially hot on brown eyes.
Purple is the most flattering color of eyeshadow, it goes well with any skin color, hair color and eye color. Purple looks amazing on brown eyes because it contrasts brown, making your eyes stand out.
If purple and teal are too colorful for you and you want a more subdued look, silver or grey work well.
Browns, taupes, coppers and bronzes are great for everyday wear.
