Best Eyeshadow Colours For Brown Eyes

Being a strong and neutral colour, brown eyes generally make the best canvas for getting creative with eyeshadow. Those with brown eyes can often get more adventurous with their eyeshadow looks, as most brown eyes carry a wide variety of colours well. Whether it be a contrasting and vibrant emerald or the classic smokey eye, there are many eyeshadow colours that suit brown eyes brilliantly. Read on for our advise on the best EyeMajic Instant Eyeshadow shades to suit your brown eyes.


To create that no makeup makeup look, brown eyed beauties can rely on natural, earthy eyeshadow shades to enhance their own eye tones, bringing out depth and dimension. Brozny tones look amazing against brown eyes, as they create a sultry yet soft appearance without being too severe. For a gentle yet polished everyday look, mix soft creamy tones with deeper autumnal shades for understated glamour. To achieve the look, we recommend trying EyeMajic Instant Eyeshadow in Creme Brulee, Wild Honey or Romanesque. 

Smoulder & Smoke

As brown eyes have no problem carrying heavier shades, the classic smokey eye is the perfect choice when wanting to elevate your everyday eyeshadow look without being too daring. Blending dark charcoal greys with silvery shimmers creates an elegant and dazzling effect, that’s perfect for a night out on the town. Opt for shade Smokey Eyes from the EyeMajic Instant Eyeshadow range, and you won’t go wrong.

Striking Contrast

If you’re feeling adventurous, those with deep brown eyes should play around with rich emerald and teal shades to create a striking contrast. Perfect when wanting to make an appearance, those with brown eyes the only ones who can really pull off this powerful look. From the EyeMajic Instant Eyeshadow collection, opt for shades Double Mint or Ivy League to create the look.

Purple Pop

For a similarly vibrant look, choose plum and violet eyeshadow colours that will compliment brown eyes. Applying heavily contrasting eyeshadow colours makes your own eye colour pop, enhancing their natural beauty. We recommend shades Violetta, Purple Haze or Flirt Alert from the EyeMajic Instant Eyeshadow collection.
