A few things to note about "Taupe" eyeshadows- 


  • They don't always look the same. Some are more greyish, while others have some gold/bronzey undertones to them.
  • Nonetheless taupe shade eyeshadow (can) make a potential base in eye makeup.
  • If applied all over the lid alone, they come out to be very dramatic and romantic.
  • If you apply them near the outer lashline, they make they eyes wider and full of depth.
  • I personally love taupe shades on all type of eye colors - green, black, brown and blue. 
  • In short, taupe shadows are a must have product in every makeup kit. 

Additional Tip-

If you don't have natural cheek bones, you can fake that by using a taupe shade under your natural cheek bones. Smile and dust it with a taupe shade. It will create a fake high cheek bones. I haven't tried this but I will and let you know how it turned out. [This tip was given by M.A.C. Makeup Artist Diane Kendal for Harper's Bazaar]
