Something that’s been around the beauty world for years, but has gotten a lot of hype recently is brown eyeliner. We love this trend because sometimes black eyeliners and mascaras can be quite harsh for redheads. Brown eyeliner is a nice subtle way to add some definition to your eye without overpowering it.
Here is everything you need to know about the brown liner trend and a few ‘Redhead-Friendly’ brown eyeliners to try out!
How should I wear brown liner?
Brown eyeliner can be worn just like black eyeliner. You can do a dramatic wing or something small and subtle. One way that brown eyeliner looks amazing is in a kitten eye. This small wing helps to provide definition to the eye without feeling overdone. Brown eyeliner also looks great when smudged out on the top and bottom lash lines.
Should I wear black or brown mascara?
Brown eyeliner is versatile! Which means you can wear either black or brown mascara with it. If you’re going for a more dramatic liner look, you might want to up the glam with black lashes, or keep it monochromatic with an all-brown look. The same goes for falsies!
What color eyeshadow looks best with brown liner?
Black eyeliner goes with everything, and while brown eyeliner is versatile there are a few colors you might want to stay away from. Brown eyeliner looks best when paired with other shades of brown, or nude, pale pinks, oranges, greens, and golds. Cool colors like silver, blue and purple look best with classic black liner.
