I usually wear blue eyeshadow with brown color lenses or the opposite (blue contacts with taupe eyeshadow, for example), but I wanted to put brown and taupe together for some reason.
I was afraid I might look totally washed out, but the finished look is surprisingly calmer yet sophisticated.
I even like how my eyes look kinda mean and catty.
(Ah, the joy of makeup..;p)
FOTD - Brown and Taupe
Lately I am having lots of fun sharing my pics on Instagram and playing with different filters.
This is the version I shared earlier this week. ;)
In this look, I am wearing tarte eye catchers smolderEYES as eyeshadow colors.
I put Champagne on the inner corners of my eyes and used Gunmetal all over my lids.
i nuovi Moonstone was lightly dusted over to set the color and add shimmer.
All together, this is a simple shimmery taupe color that makes enough contrast to the orange brown color of NEO Lucky Clover Brown lenses.
On my face, I am wearing pixi Illuminating Tint & Conceal in No. 2 Bare Glow.
I won this goody from Amynaree (Girly Niche blog)'s giveaway not too long ago.
(Thanks again, Amy! ^-^)
The finish is glowy and light, and it does a wonderful job evening out the skin tone without the heavy feel, but unfortunately the shade is a little darker than my complexion so I had to mix it with my Paul & Joe foundation.
The concealer color works nicely as it is on my blemishes and post acne marks.
