To be honest, no one ever taught me how to put on makeup when I was a teen. Thankfully, there was no social media back then, so there’s little to no proof of my eyeliner nightmares. These days, however, there’s no excuse: the internet is packed with step-by-step tutorials to underline any good feature and mask any insecurity. But we’ll make your job even easier: here are some great makeup tutorials for brown eyes, which will emphasize and make them shine.
