If you have hazel brown eyes, one of the best eyeshadows to use is gold. That’s because the gold color helps bring out the yellow tint in your brown eyes. However, going full-on gold isn’t recommended so we suggest something like the photo above–a golden smokey eye. If you don’t fancy a smokey eye, just mix your gold with something bronze or copper to complement your brown eyes.

Why do we love electric blue eyeshadow for brown eyes? It’s because the coolness of the blue color contrasts the warmness of the brown eyes. However, take note that not all blue colors will work great on you. Pick something bright like electric blue or royal blue. An additional tip is to wear royal blue eyeliner along the lash line to accentuate the contrast and brighten the whites in your eyes too!

Whether you go silver smokey eye or just a simple silver eyeshadow, it’s going to look great on you girl! Just the same with the bright blue eyeshadow, the cool-toned silver sparks a beautiful contrast with the warm-toned brown of your eyes. You can’t go wrong with this color! Go gunmental, metallic or platinum silver–take your pick! Just a quick note, don’t put too much silver eyeshadow on the lower lash line as this can enhance the appearance of dark undereye circles.
