Brown, green, hazel + blue eyes all look gorgeous framed with a smoky taupe lid! This is because it’s a hybrid shade that is both cool (smoky grey) while being warm (muddy taupe). Who knew something muddy could look so pretty on your face?! Choose a shimmer or matte finish, start at your inner corner and sweep it along your entire lid + crease, then wing it out past your lash line. And don’t forget to sweep it along your bottom lash line as well. Complement it with black mascara and/or a black-rimmed inner waterline and finish the look with any lip color; I would choose a red, pink or nude.
