Purple Eyeshadow Looks for Brown Eyes
1 – Purple & Warm Metallic Tones
Warm metallic tones around the eyes will really help to bring brown eyes to life and make them glisten and shimmer under the light too. If you have undertones of gold, or lighter flecks in your brown eye colours, the warm gold and metallic tones will help to pick them up, literally enhancing your natural eye colour. Add those warmer metallic shades in the palette to the purple you plan on using and you might just end up with a look as stunning as this one!
2 – Coppery-Brown & Purple Tones
Coppery tones are perfect for brown eyes, alongside those bright purple shades, so why not look at combining the two? This brilliant makeup look, for example, combines that pop of purple across the bottom lashes, with the top lashes kept that brown-nude tone that has become your go-to summer shade. It’s just a quick colour change from the regular, but it just does pack a punch in terms of effect, it must be said.
3 – Purple-Pink Peepers
A cut crease with a difference, this purple-pink look for brown eyes is giving us all sorts of feel-good vibes. Purple has long since been connected to celebrities, royalty, and wealth, and this pretty look is definitely worthy of all three. Leave the black liner alone for the night, substituting it for a sparkly silver number instead. A silver slick is just the perfect addition to this purple makeup look too, working with the fab highlighter to bring it all to life.

It’s dramatic, yet playful, and that’s the perfect mix for when a date or other colourful occasion. In fact, we don’t really need an excuse to rock eyes as beautiful as this. Any excuse will do!

Gold and purple make a great combination, elegantly shown by this pretty and eye-catching design. Gold might not be the first shade you’d think of mixing with purple, but the two contrasts definitely have the potential to sprinkle a little magic over any occasion. Sometimes it’s the colours that you DON’T think will work that actually pack the biggest punch. This one might be a little outside of the box, but we sure do love it.
9 – Lighter Lilac Hues
The most complimentary tone for brown eyes is purple, and this toned-down look is perfect for when you don’t want something overly bright.
