Sure, brown is the most common eye color—more than 55 percent of us have them—but that doesn't mean they aren't special. If you look closely at a dark iris, you'll likely find varying flecks of gold, auburn, or hazel. And to bring out these beautiful hues that make dark eyes unique, beauty vlogger Sona Gasparian has created a tutorial on makeup for brown eyes.
From her tips on how to add depth to her technique for applying metallic shadow, Gasparian has brown eye makeup down to a science. Scroll down to watch Gasparian's video that features step-by-step instructions on ways to make your dark irises pop.
Now that you've learned how to re-create Gasparian's look, keep scrolling to shop her favorite products for brown eyes.
Emphasize the depth and richness of your brown eyes with a shadow that has red undertones and apply it to the crease of your eye. We love this warm chestnut-brown color from MAC, as it works for a variety of skin tones and is surprisingly easy to blend.
Next, opt for an opaque metallic eye shadow with a yellow or champagne undertone for the middle of your lid. It'll make your eye color pop and keep your lids looking gorgeously glossy.
Use this ivory-colored shadow on the inner corners of your eyes as well as along your brow bone for a glow that will show off your eye color as well as your bone structure.
This definitely isn't the first you've heard of Urban Decay's now cult-favorite Naked 2 Palette—but that's for good reason. It houses every warm shade you'll ever need to show off those brown peepers in a variety of textures with a serious color payoff.
Want to get Gasparian's exact look? The beauty vlogger created her very own palette composed of 12 neutral-colored shadows, all of which complement brown eyes.
In another video, Gasparian shows off her everyday makeup routine using the Persona Cosmetics 24 Hour Waterproof Eyeliner in the color Bronze. She smudges the pencil along the lash line and blends it out with a fingertip for a natural, smoked-out effect.
Gasparian is a big fan of Glossier Boy Brow in the shade Brown to create a soft, fluffy brow to frame the eyes. The brand carries three other colors including Blonde, Black, and Clear, so choose the one that best matches your hair.
Several coats of black mascara will really make your lashes and brown eyes pop, as demonstrated by Gasparian. In her latest favorites video, she recommends this newly launched formula by Lilly Lashes for lengthening and separating the lashes.
