5 Rich Brown Eyeshadows to Savor

5 Rich Brown Eyeshadows to Savor

I think richness isn’t just a really dark shade–I think it has more to do with intensity, vibrancy, and how much depth a shade can have.  These shades look so luxe to me!

  1. NARS Surabaya — two rich browns–one more yellow-toned, one more red-toned
  2. Make Up For Ever #14 — dark brown with coppery-red undertones
  3. MAC Embark — deep, dark matte red-toned brown
  4. Inglot #409 — deep brown with a golden-bronze sheen
  5. Tarina Tarantino Dreamy — deep, dark chocolate brown with ruby and gold sparkle

Look: Dreamy Warm Golds & Bronzes

Look: Dreamy Warm Golds & Bronzes

This is the look I came up with using Tarina Tarantino’s Dreamy Eyeshadow Palette, which is really warm-toned. The quality is excellent, and even though the shades are standard fare, they’re still well-done.

You will need the following…

For eyes, I skipped eyeshadow primer (for testing purposes), but if you prefer or need primer, lay it down prior to the eyeshadow. I applied peach-beige (center) eyeshadow on the entire lower lid with the 239, and then I gently patted the copper (top) eyeshadow on the outer third of the lid with another 239. I swept the bronzy brown (right) eyeshadow into and above the crease with the 222 and deepened the crease with the deep brown (bottom) eyeshadow in the crease with the 231. I highlighted the brow bone with the white gold (left) eyeshadow with the 217. On the lower lash line, I used Bronze eyeliner. I used one coat of Film Noir mascara on top and bottom lashes.

For face, apply Pro Lumiere all over face with the 109.  Add color to the cheeks by gently dusting Exposed near apples and blended out towards temples with the 116.  Set with Translucent 1 using the 134. For lips, apply La Somptueuse onto lips.

Tarina Tarantino Dreamy Jewel Eyeshadow Palette

The top shade is a rich copper with hints of orange; it’s a lighter, rusted copper shade with a frosted finish. It’s brighter and more orange than a lot of coppery shades I’ve come across. Make Up For Ever #12 is browner, more bronzy. Urban Decay Baked and MAC Amber Lights are also more bronze. The pigmentation is amazing–intense and vibrant–with a dense, buttery texture.
