Smokey shades look great on everyone, but they’re not always appropriate for the office or for daytime events where so much light can make your style look a bit overdone. Luckily there’s an easy, beautiful way to glam up your eyes without having to resort to your go-to dark brown or black shades of eyeshadow.
With a peach shade on top and a taupe hue on the bottom, you can do no wrong. The two different tones will help your eyes look more awake and radiant, and the best news is it works for all eye colors. A compact like Jane Iredale – PurePressed Triple Eye Shadow gives you three complementary shades that are perfect for nailing the look.
To pull it off, use a makeup primer on your lids to be sure it lasts. Then, line your inner rims and along your upper lash line with a brown pencil, like Colorescience – Eye Pencil in A Cup O’ Joe. Smooth on a peachy shade on your upper lid, blending just above your crease. Then use a shimmery taupe shade underneath your eyes and in your inner corners for a wide-eyed look perfect for any occasion.
