Types of Colored Eyeliners for Brown Eyes

Liquid Eyeliner: This is one of the most commonly used eyeliner types. You can apply it using an angled brush (my favorite). Make sure you use a eyeliner with the thinnest brush to give a well defined and thin line on your eyes. There are two types of liquid eyeliners, one that is in a small bottle and the other is a felt-tip liquid eyeliner that has the simple application as that of a pencil eyeliner and the precision of the liquid liner.

Tips to Make Your Brown Eyes Pop


White Eyeliner

By applying white eyeliner to your waterline, you can create the illusion of a bigger eye. The white liner can also be placed on the outside of desired. White eyeliner is a trick that celebrity make-up artists use to create big and bright eyes for their important clients.

The eyebrows are very important and should be maintained. The eyebrows provide a frame for the eyes and if they look imperfect, so do your eyes. Brows should be kept plucked and waxed to create the right angel to show off your eyes.

Under Eye Concealer
Put a crescent-moon of concealer under each eye. Start at the inner corner of the lower eyelid and drag the concealer stick or your finger to the outer corner and tapered at the ends. This will hide any dark circles or discoloration and will bring focus to your beautiful brown eyes!

Add a dot of shimmer or sparkly light eye shadow to the inner corner of each eye to make those brown eyes pop!


Put on 2-3 coats of your favorite mascara to make them look fuller. I prefer using Covergirl mascara but that’s my personal preference.

Curl Your Lashes

A lot of people skip this step which is so simple to do. Put an eyelash curler under a blow dryer for 10-20 seconds. This will heat up the metal and help lift your lashes longer. It’s amazing how different brown eyes can look by having them curled!
