Best Eyeliner Color for Brown Eyes

Brown eyeliner is the best choice for brown eyes because of its complementary and natural look. 

Brown eyes are naturally warm, so a soft brown eyeliner can be used to define the lash line and create a look that enhances your beauty. It is best for a casual or daytime occasion. A deeper brown is better for more drama and intensity, perhaps for going out in the evening. 

When you wear a lighter brown, we recommend smudging it slightly using a brush to soften the line. That way you can define your eyes while still embracing your natural beauty.

Whether you want a lighter or darker brown, always pay attention to your lower lash line! It’s a shame to see people miss out on giving their full potential to their eyes by neglecting lower lashes and only focusing on upper.

If you buy an eyeliner that offers more than just one level of intensity, you can control the depth of brown for your eyes depending on preference or occasion.

How to Do Eyeliner for Hooded Eyes

Applying eyeliner for hooded eyes can be tricky as the excess skin on the eyelid can make it difficult to create a smooth and defined line. But we got you!

  1. Start with a primer. This will help keep your eyeliner in place and prevent it from smudging.
  2. Keep a gentle hand. Don’t apply too much pressure or you increase the chances of the eyeliner transferring and smudging.
  3. Focus on applying to outer corners. For a more defined look, apply to the outer corners, and you will make your eyes appear elongated, more awake, and alert.
  4. Use an eyeliner pen to create a winged line. This will create the effect of a lifted eye. To do this, draw a thin line along your upper lash line and extend the line upwards and outwards at a slight angle. Connect the wing back to your upper lash line and remember to fill in any gaps.
  5. Set with an eyeshadow. A matching eyeshadow can save you from the eyeliner smudging as it blends in. Apply a thin layer of eyeshadow over the eyeliner with a brush, focusing on the outer corners of your eyes.

How to Do Eyeliner Perfectly and Extra Application Tips

Since black eyeliner is more prominent, it is especially important to take care; one major smudge can feel like game over. This is why the accuracy of pencil eyeliners is our top priority.

Use small strokes. Small, short strokes will reduce the chances of a mistake and create a more precise line to look more natural.

Focus mostly on the outer corners. This creates the most flattering look by elongating the eyes to look catlike and feminine.

Finish with mascara. This touch is a must to define your lashes and make your eyes look as dramatic and deep as possible.

These are our top tips and tricks for brown eyeliner and black eyeliner. We hope you learned some useful things to enhance your look!
