Hi, tara.  To make your brown eyes really pop, wear an eyeshadow that’s the opposite of your eye shade on the color spectrum.  Brown eyes are more flattered lined with a brown liner, not black—it’s softer yet still dramatic.  Brown eyes can wear almost any combination of colors.  However, some of the best shades for brown eyes are:

  • cream / eggshell
  • dark brown
  • plum
  • warm gold
  • deep blue
  • forest green
  • deep grey


A palette that has all the shades to make your brown eyes pop is the Tarte TEN Limited Edition Collector’s Palette which is a refillable and reusable, gold-studded palette that contains 10 limited-edition shadows, a limited-edition, double-ended eye liner, and a full-size eyeshadow brush, plus mascara.  This paraben-free and sulfate-free palette is a true collector's item filled with endless looks from soft to smoky to earthy to jewel-toned.  Before being treated with soothing vitamins, these highly pigmented shadows are softly milled from natural mineral pigments for rich color payoff and silky application.  The double-ended eye liner in deep black and plum complements any look and is infused with antioxidant-rich and free-radical-fighting carnauba wax, shea butter and cocoa seed butter.  Tarte even includes a free deluxe sample of their best-selling Lights, Camera, Lashes! Clinically-Proven Natural Mascara, so you can achieve a 424% increase in the volume of your lashes!  The set specifically includes the following:
- 10 x 0.06 oz Eyeshadows:
-Top row - left to right: matte soft pink, shimmering silver gray, soft shimmering gold, vibrant shimmering copper, vivid shimmering amethyst
-Bottom row - left to right: shimmering deep plum, matte almost black, deep shimmering chocolate, deep shimmering forest green, vivid shimmering teal
-0.04 oz Double-sided eyeliner: matte deep black and deep plum
-0.10 oz Lights, Camera, Lashes! Mascara

By the way, this palette contains good-for-your-skin ingredients like carnauba wax, a natural wax that ensures a smooth application, shea butter, a natural skin emollient that helps retain skin elasticity and protect against cell degeneration, cocoa seed butter, an antioxidant rich and emollient salve that helps fight free radicals while soothing and moisturizing dry skin, vitamin C, an antioxidant that fights free radical damage and prevents oxidative stress and premature signs of aging, while brightening skin and mineral pigments which have been known to soothe and soften the skin.  You can find the palette here:  http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P266118&shouldPaginate=true&categoryId=5648

Hope this helps!
Have a great day!
