A banging’ brew of browns

So, what makes it comparatively straightforward? Reply: The 2 brown shades — the golden brown on my lids (MAC Cork) and the hotter orangey brown in my crease (MAC Saddle) — are related tones, which makes mixing them collectively simpler.

Actually, if you happen to’re REALLY pressed for time, you possibly can even skip the nice and cozy brown within the crease, and simply put on the golden brown eyeshadow throughout your lids.

Base notes

Oh, and about that eyeshadow base — within the pics above, I’m purposefully carrying a beige cream eye primer with a beige powder eyeshadow buffed on prime, that are lighter than my pores and skin tone. I do that as a result of, after I need browns to indicate up on my brown pores and skin, I’ve to go lighter with my base. That makes them pop. I like to recommend going with a base that’s much like your pores and skin tone.

Generally, although, I skip the beige base completely and simply do a sleek of golden brown eyeshadow throughout my lids, like on this pic beneath:
