Eye Makeup For Dark Brown Eyes

Plum Eyeshadow

Plum shades complement dark brown eyes so well. They have a very earthy feel and look absolutely beautiful during the autumn. I can imagine pairing this with a lovely mustard colored sweater with some jeans and boots.

Dark Green Eyeshadow

Dark green is such a pretty color, and it looks gorgeous on those with dark brown eyes. It looks incredibly enchanting. It would look great in matte or shimmer. If you’re going out in the day, a matte option would be better. If it’s for a party at night, don’t be afraid to reach out for the shimmer!

Gray Eyeshadow

Gray, a softer option for black. I have dark brown eyes, and I can tell from personal experience that when I’m reaching for a dark yet subtle look, gray is the way to go. Add in a winged liner, and it’ll totally complete your look. For a little more detailing, you can add a line of silver glitter under the wing.
