I was reading the current issue of Glamour magazine and I spotted an ad with Kim Kardashian rocking a smoky brown eye look. My favorite thing about Kimmie is her makeup because it always classic and flawless.
I am so all about using color and having fun that I forget about the dignity and elegance of brown. I decided to recreate a softer look using NARS Pleasures of Paris palette. (Sidebar: I love NARS palettes because the colors are quite functional for daily use. I believe that Francois Nars really thinks about his customers (clients) and packages colors that they can really use.)
Fez e/s is a “velvety cocoa” which is a tad deeper in person. Mekong e/s is an “espresso infused with gold.” <— is my favorite dark brown shadow. When it come out in the Fall ’09 collection, I scooped it up right away. Definitely a must-have for all eyes!! The Cordura e/s in the palette is actually part of a duo. I think it is similar to Mekong (slightly redder and darker than Cordura).
