The Nu Neutrals: Basic Shades that Go Wild
Recently, we have seen a trend that is anything but natural: neutral colors worn unnaturally. Imagine earthy shades of red and orange in your shadows and lips that are the color of pebbles and stones. These skin-flattering shades can be turned upside down to create a stunning look. Who knew that basic grey and brown could be used to create dramatic looks?
We suggest that you start with our nu-neutrals. Subtlety and subtlety are key.
Lit Cosmetics Glitter Pigment in Hot Chocolate
When it comes to loose glitter, gold, silver, and even red are the most popular. But what about brown? This chocolatey shade is buildable, so you can make it as flashy or as subtle as you like. However, a thicker coating will give you a less showgirl-like shimmer. Dust some over your lids to create an ethereal, club-like look.
Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar in John Doe
This ashy, nude lip shade is unexpected. It’s tan enough to be flattering but still a little ashy. The taupe undertone in this shade is both subtle and unmistakably odd. It plays off similar skin tones, giving the shadow a unique look. This highly blendable lip color is perfect for those who want to ease into the world of more unusual lip colors. Mix it with your favorite lip color for a cool, spooky effect.
Sugarpill Loose Eyeshadow in Penelope
This is a departure from the company that’s known for its extra-bright shadows! This copper shimmers like a penny and gives your lids a dazzling shine. Don’t downplay this color. Try a smoky look by substituting rich browns with blacks and adding lots of brown glitter. This grunge meets glam look will suit anyone.
Armour Beauty lip gloss in Foxy
This chocolate-like gloss is the friendlier cousin of black lipstick. Deep brown lips, popular in the 1960s and 1970s, are making a comeback. This gloss creates an almost gothic look on fair-skinned faces and a glam-like, nude effect for darker-skinned women. This chocolate gloss will only lighten up your dark look a bit if that’s what you like.
Inglot Freedom System Rainbow Eyeshadow – 124
The look is elevated to a fierce level by adding a hint of orange. This 3-in-1 eyeshadow features a trio of shades, including wine, peach, and brick, that complement the natural tones on our lids. You might be surprised by the results of shading in burgundy.
