Nearly 55 percent of the world’s population has brown eyes, according to AC Lens, making it the most common eye color in the world. Brown eyes are also the most versatile in terms of makeup. Learn how to make your chocolate-colored peepers really pop with these chic everyday makeup looks.

Silver Smokey Eye

Silver dreams...

Add instant depth to brown eyes with a light, sparkling shade like silver. Begin with an eye primer to ensure that the eyeshadow adheres well to the lid. Next, tightline your eyes with a black eyeliner pencil, including the inner rims and the upper waterline to make the lashes appear darker and denser.

Also line the upper lash line with a black eye pencil, slightly smudging it across the upper lid using a pencil brush. Apply the silver eyeshadow from the inner eye corner to about halfway across the lid. Use a warm brown eyeshadow to color the other half of the lid. Soften and blend the colors together slightly with a fluffy blending brush.

Electric Blue Winged Liner


With just a small pop of electric blue liner, your eyes will instantly look larger and more intense. For this fun look, begin by priming your lids, then defining your crease with a soft taupe color. Next, sweep a copper eyeshadow over your entire lid. Use a crease brush to blend out the lid and crease color to create a seamless effect.

Line your eyes from the inner corner to the outer corner of the top lid, creating an ultra-thin line. Next, create a wing with a blue liquid eyeliner, starting at the point where you left off with the black liner. Finish the look with two coats of black mascara to thicken your lashes and make your eyes appear wider.

Gold and Glittery Eyes

This dramatic look is perfect for any occasion and works well with all skin tones. Once you’ve primed your lids, apply a bronze shadow to the inner and outer corners of your eyes. Next, a dark brown eyeshadow should be blended throughout the crease with a blending brush.

Use a light shimmery color to highlight the brow bone area. Dip your clean fingertip into gold shimmering dust and gently pat your lids to distribute the glitter. Use a waterproof black gel liner to line the upper lash line, smudging the color slightly with a flat-tipped brush. Line the bottom lash line with a gold eyeliner.
