Your eye color is unique – literally. That’s right, no matter how many of your family members share the same brown eyes as you, you are the only person in the world with your exact eye color. Now that’s something to be celebrated! When choosing makeup to enhance your unique eye color, create an eye makeup look with makeup shades that are complementary to your eye color to help make them pop. These shades can be the same color – mascara with blue undertones to complement blue eyes – or colors that sit opposite on the artist’s color wheel , for example, purple and green, or mascara with purple undertones to complement green eyes. No matter what eye color you have, your eyes are special and were made to be gazed upon. Ahead, we put together simple eye makeup looks that help intensify your eye color for sparkling, beautifully striking eyes.
Make Brown Eyes Pop: Makeup for Brown Eyes
The appearance of your eye color is dependent on two things: the amount and distribution of melanin, a brown pigment, in your iris, the colored part of your eye. Brown and dark eyes contain the most melanin out of all eye colors and are had by almost half of the world’s population. But brown eyes are anything but ordinary. You can create infinite complementary eye makeup looks for dark eyes given their neutral nature: warm and rich tones, like berry and mocha, earth tones, like emerald and honey, deep shades, like charcoal and brown, and even neon and bright colors. To make the browns in your eye color pop, try this easy, 3-step eye makeup routine:
Step 1: Swipe on the earthy tones of Hypnôse 5-Color Eyeshadow Palette in Bronze Absolu

Intensify Your Eye Makeup Look with Lash Primer
Applying lash primer before your mascara is one additional easy step to intensify your eye makeup look. So, what does lash primer do? Lash primer, typically a white mascara, creates an even surface layer on lashes to maximize the results of your favorite mascara. Cils Booster XL Enhancing Lash Primer creates a smooth, even layer on lashes so mascara has a smooth, even surface to coat. And when mascara with a color undertone is applied over white mascara primer, it not only creates longer, bolder lashes, but it also amplifies the intensity, appearing more vivid and striking for plush, eye-color-enhancing lashes.
Cils Booster XL primes lashes and goes a step further. The multi-purpose formula not only lengthens and thickens lashes, but it can also be worn overnight to condition lashes in a “lash mask.” Infused with Vitamin B5 and Vitamin E, simply apply onto clean lashes to nourish and rejuvenate lashes before bed to help improve lash results, thickness and curl over time.
