One of the trends I have been seeing everywhere is a gorgeous taupe smokey eye. I kind of get stuck with my black or plum eyeliner, so it was a nice refreshing break from that to try something new with this look. Below, I posted a picture of my eye with the color that I used. You can really use any shimmery taupe or brown color to achieve this look. I recommend Mud Eyeshadow in Brownstone or Bobbi Brown eyeshadow in Stone. A great brush for this look would be the Mac 228 brush which is great for shading under the bottom lash line.
