Brown is one of those colors that, for some reason or other, usually gets overlooked in the beauty world. Sure, it’s versatile and a great daytime hue, but it’s certainly not considered the most exciting – especially when we have colors like radiant orchid, navy and burgundy to play around with. But perhaps there’s more to brown than we know. Perhaps brown has the hidden potential to actually be…exciting? This tutorial will teach you to create a dramatic, seductive, double take-worthy brown eye makeup look – the opposite of “boring” in every way. The result? Let’s just say we’re never putting baby in a corner ever again.
Shimmery Base: Wash the eyelid with a soft, shimmery golden hue like Moodstruck Minerals Concealer in Foxy (this versatile powder is the same one used to warm up your face in the final step).
Add Dimension: Apply a cool brown eye shadow with a hint of shimmer (try Moodstruck Minerals Pigment Powder in Confident) along your socket to add a touch of smokiness. To create even more dimension, add a warm champagne shimmer like Moodstruck Minerals Pigment Powder in Heart Broken in the inner corner of your eyes and in the center of your lid. Blend with an eye shadow brush.
Liner + Mascara: Sweep a black eyeliner as close to the lash line as possible, then swipe on the best mascara 3D Fiber Lashes for full, look-at-me lashes.
For the final touch, dust on a warm, glowy powder like Moodstruck Minerals Concealer in Foxy across your cheeks, down your nose and across your forehead. You glow, girl!
