Makeup styles may come and go, but a soft brown eye is a classic that’s always on-trend. This neutral shade is perfect for wearing alone or combining with other shadows for a variety for seasons and occasions.
Here are 3 reasons and tips to wearing “basic brown”:
Seasonless Color. A matte brown shadow is a makeup wardrobe basic. Use in the fall with a burgundy lip or add a summer-y feel with a soft pink blush and pink lip gloss. Make it more festive with a shimmery shadow in the corner of the eye and under the brow. It may be basic, but it doesn’t have to be boring!
Universally Flattering. Regardless of eye color or skin tone, a taupe-y brown shadow adds definition without looking overdone. Fair skin tones can skip the eyeliner for a soft romantic look, while medium to dark tones may add a tight black eye liner for eye-popping contrast.
The new duo-fiber collection is perfectly designed to make blending a snap! The shorter fibers blend as you sweep on product with the longer bristles creating buildable coverage and texture that looks great in any light.
Apply along the cheekbones with blush or under the cheekbone with a contour shade. The ultra-plush taklon fibers are designed to apply cream or powder pigment without damaging the bristles. Sam likes Chanel Soleil de Tan Bronze Universal.
The duo fibers deliver a light application that is perfectly buildable —much easier to add then to take away.
Duo-Fiber Eye Brush
Apply a light eye shadow to the tips of the brush and work into the eye socket allowing the shorter bristles on the side to blend as you apply. Re-apply until desired shade is achieved MAC Concrete eyeshadow is Sam’s pick.
