A Stunning Makeup Tutorial for Brown Eyes
Beauty vlogger Sona Gasparian’s tutorial for brown-eyed girls just left us reeling—it’s that good. While blue eyes might have songs written about them, Gasparian proves once and for all that chocolate eyes are the most fun to play up. Start off by emphasizing the depth and richness of brown eyes with shadows that have red undertones—Gasparian’s favorite is MAC’s Eye Shadow in Brown Script ($16). Next, concentrate darker and warm shadows (such as Jouer Powder Eyeshadow in Amaretto, $22) to the outer corner and crease to form a more dramatic and feline shape. Lastly, add a dose of glamour by applying metallic shadow to the center of the lid—Gasparian uses MAC’s Eye Shadow in Nylon ($16). The final look? Show-stopping, head-turning perfection.
