For many women, black eye makeup is a necessity. Whether it's mascara, shadow or eyeliner, black seems like the obvious choice. It defines the eyes and draws attention – which is exactly what you'd expect from your makeup! However, have you ever noticed how black makeup looks a bit too dark when you step outside into the sunlight?
If you ever go into work feeling too made-up with your black makeup products, consider going brown. Not only is this color showing up on everyone's eyes lately, but it's much softer and more wearable for day.
Chocolatey brown eyeshadows are totally trending right now, which means any shade that's remotely similar works. Try Pixi – Eye Beauty Kit, which comes in a gorgeous variety of natural hues. It'll look great on all skin tones and with all eye colors, so there's really no way you can go wrong.
Enhance the shadow with a smudge of brown liner, like Blinc – Eyeliner in Medium Brown. This will define your lash line yet still give you a natural looking effect. Top it off with brown mascara, which will do the exact same job as black without the harshness. Perfect!
