1. Brow game on fleek

Instagram has spoken and brows are being fleeked from left to right. The secret to the best brows for brunettes is found in the highlights of your hair. It’s recommended that your eye brows be one or two shades lighter than your hair. Refer to the natural highlights in your hair as a reference color to fill in your brows. A tinted brow gel a shade lighter can really go a long way.  

2. Eyeliner is all practice

Practice, practice and practice. Although black is the standard in eyeliner, navy eyeliner is stunning on brunettes of any eye color. Rock a bold wing or go for a more subtle smoked out lower lash line and be ready for the flood of compliments coming your way. 

3. Smokey flare

Fact: Smokey eyes are dangerously stunning on brunettes. Go classic with a black Smokey eye or slay with smoked up copper eye shadow with black eyeliner. This combo is guaranteed to slay. 

4. Contouring your best features

Warmer toned contour powder will sculpt your features for a glamorously chiseled look. Contour the sides of your face in the shape of a “3”, starting from your forehead to the hollow below your cheekbone and along the jawline. Use a warm toned bronzer and highlighter to add a sun-kissed glow and compliment your brown locks. 

5. Lips to seal the deal

My darling brunette, there are many options for you when it comes to lip colors. The classic red lip will always be stunning for brown haired dames. Need an everyday color? Play with nudes of rich brown or pink tones for the optimal natural look. 

6. Watch out for blushing brunettes

As for blushes, brunettes have all the fun. You can pull off a range of bold and bright blushes! Peach tone blushes can greatly compliment lighter brunettes while pink blushes nicely contrast darker locks.
