The Forgotten Mr. Brown

Sunday, April 14, 2013

Most women think that brown eyeshadow is only for contouring, only for the creases, and nothing else. The glossies now are filled with colored eyeliners and shadows that poor Mr. Brown is feeling left out. The classic shades of brown's earthy characteristics make it very wearable either for the day or for the evening. Also, for women who prefer to stay away from the spotlight, brown eyeshadow doesn't scream "HEY!". Brown doesn't have to be worn matte and boring.

Allow me to show you this how-to video on how you can wear the classic brown shadow for a night out and sport the Hollywood Glam look!



Here is my top 10 list of best brown eyeshadows (In no particular order) that can suit any skin color or tone:

1. Fanny Serrano Single Eyeshadow in Espresso (Matte)
2. Laura Mercier Eyeshadow in Chocolate (Light Shimmer)
3. NARS Eyeshadow in Fez (Frosted)
4. Stila Eyeshadow in Golightly (Frosted)
5. Revlon Powder Blush in Toast of New York #10 used as eyeshadow (Matte)
6. Bobbi Brown Eyeshadow in Sable (Matte)
7. Shu Uemura Eyeshadow in ME850 (Frosted)
8. Nichido Eyeshadow in Coco Pearl (Frosted)
9. MAC Eyeshadow in Cork (Matte)
10. MUD Eyeshadow in Brownstone (Shimmer)

  3. I love our local beauty products! I actually have a few of the fashion21 (or fanny serrano? Cant remember) mono shadows esp the matte ones. We can never go wrong with browns. It's the best go to and neutral shade for an everyday look or even a night out.
