The Best Makeup Colors for Brown Eyes: Warm Rust Eyeshadow

The trick to enhancing brown eyes is to first identify which pigments yours comprise. "One of the best kept secrets by makeup artists is that smudging a warm brown eye shadow with coppery undertones onto the lash line will bring out green and gold flashes in brown eyes," Ungaro says.

For an even stronger look, Ungaro recommends following the eye shadow with jet black liner on the waterline to add depth.
