Sometimes we don't want our eyeshadow to look so obvious. The smokey eye look is great for evening, but during the day, a natural approach is best. Here we'll show you how to define your eyes without looking like you're wearing makeup!
First Things First
Go for soft colors that highlight your eye color.
Shimmery nude, light brown, and bronze are essential shades that blend perfectly together. Use light brown to define the crease, from your inner eye, extending all the way out slightly beyond the outer edge of your eye (this makes the eye appear larger). Then using a shimmery nude tone, highlight just below the eyebrow. Next, sweep a copper or bronze shade from your lashes up to the eye crease. Blend with a rounded, soft brush, like Body Shop's Blender Brush.
Define you lashline by using a brown or light black pencil eye liner and trace the top lid softly near your lashes. Lastly, curl lashes and apply mascara. We love Covergirls Volume Exact mascara. It practically doubles your lashes, has incredible staying power and volumizes/defines naturally.
Palettes are a girl's best friend. Who wants to carry around a bunch of separate eyeshadows? No one! We like Physician's Formula for their selection of colors and affordability factor. The palette (pictured left) can be used for dark to light brown eyes. Basic colors: black, purple, lavender, light pink, brown, copper, gray, and a light silver. Each color (no matter the mix) can look amazing on brown eyes.
