6. Purple Smokey Eye

For something purple, we can’t recommend this shimmering purple look enough. It’s spring now too, so there has never been a better time to rock those pastel shades. This look starts with the eyeshadow primer, of course, before adding a nude base. Then  build up the colors, incorporating different shades of lilac and almost-pink tones, until you’re ready for that glitter pop right in the center. Throw on your eyeliner, add your lashes, and you’re good to go. Not as scary as you first may have thought, right?

7. Black Smokey Eye with a Pop of Gold

And for those nights when you need a really smokey look, how about this black smokey eye with a beautiful pop of gold? The smokey eye look is great for so many occasions too – a hot date, for example, or even night out on the town with your best girlfriends. The trick to looks as deep and dark as this one is to start off light and build your way up. By just slapping the black eyeshadow on your eyelids, you’re going to look more horror-scare than night-out. Add a little, blend it, then add a little more. It’s easier to add more than it is to take some away.

10. Pop of Purple

Purple is a great shade to play around with when you have deep brown eyes. That dusky peach towards the center and inner corner stops the look from being too dark or “purpley”. In fact, if you’re worried that a dark black or grey smokey eye might be a little too much for a particular event, tone things down with a playful pop of purple
