My brown eyed gals!!! This is part three of my mini-series: Top 10 MAC Eyeshadows for Your Eye Color.  Brown eyes look fabulous with just about ANY color! You can pull off bright colors, neutrals, and anything in between! The majority of the eyeshadows in the post are pretty bright.

Here are my recommendations for BROWN EYES:



KNIGHT DIVINE (VELUXE PEARL)

Knight Divine is an asphalt black with silver pearl, but applies like a blackened grey with shimmer. It is gorgeous with brown eyes -- it makes them glow! Kind of reminds me of the way a wolf's eyes glow at night.

TEMPTING (LUSTER)

MAC calls Tempting a "sinfully rich cocoa" and I guess I agree with that vague description. This is one of the very few Luster finish eyeshadows from MAC that I really like. Tempting looks gorgeous on brown eyes! If you aren't a fan of glitter, I would avoid this shadow.



 

WOODWINKED (VELUXE PEARL)

Beautiful gold color that looks great by itself on the lid, or smudged along the lower lash line. It can appear a little orange on fair skin, so keep that in mind if it applies to you. Although they look similar in the pan, Tempting and Woodwinked look nothing alike on the eye.


SUMPTUOUS OLIVE (VELUXE PEARL)

I love this color sooooo much. I recommend this one to everyone, especially ladies with brown eyes. It is a bronzy olive green on the lid.

HUMID (FROST)

If you could only have one green eyeshadow from any makeup brand, this should be it!!! Put Humid on the top of your makeup wishlist! I would say that it is a mix between a hunter green and a forest green with shimmer.

CONTRAST (VELVET)

Navy eyeshadows look GREAT on brown eyes; Contrast is a purpley navy with blue shimmer. I love this color in the crease or on the lid... you can also smudge it along your lower lash line.

SATELLITE DREAMS (VELUXE PEARL)

Beautiful midtone purple with bluish purple shimmer. I think this shadow looks good on cool and warm skin tones alike, making it a universally gorgeous shade! This too is a pretty bright eyeshadow, so bear that in mind!

SATIN TAUPE (FROST)

Satin Taupe looks gorgeous on EVERYONE, and brown eyes are no exception. It is a metallic taupe with a slight purple undertone. There is a reason ST is the most talked about eyeshadow on the internet...

CRANBERRY (FROST)

Cranberry is a true cranberry color with shimmer. It has superb texture, pigmentation, and blendability, and makes brown eyes pop! It can be a little intimidating at first, but definitely worth checking out.






NOCTURNELLE (FROST)

Nocturnelle is warm darker purple with shimmer. I really love the way it pairs with both Satellite Dreams and Satin Taupe.
