I was browsing Fall makeup trends the other day and came across a few smokey brown eyes. I realized that I’ve never featured any such look on my blog, so I had to do one!
The key to this look is using brown eyeliner instead of black. Brown makes for a much softer, less intense look. This is great if you’re going for natural makeup or just want to try something different.
Since I have a tan skin tone, browns are very subtle on my eyes. I used soft, golden browns for the lid and a cooler brown for the crease. I applied a medium brown liner, but I would’ve preferred a dark brown. It was just what I had on hand. Also a plum shade of liner would look really good.
I only buy brown mascara on accident (don’t you hate when that happens?!), but if you have light lashes, brown is a great option to go along with the natural look. I applied just enough black mascara to give my lashes a boost without looking dramatic.
This eye makeup felt so different for me. I usually depend on black eyeliner to bring the whole look together as well as help magnify my lashes. Natural, colorful, or dramatic, it’s still fun to experiment.
