Tough As Taupe: Purple and Taupe Eye Makeup
The cream eyeshadow that I am featuring in today's eye makeup look for my color tattoo series is the Maybelline Color Tattoo in Tough As Taupe. I remember when this first came out, and it seemed like everyone was raving about this shade along with the Bad To The Bronze shade. Although, I love Bad To The Bronze and use it all of the time, Tough As Taupe has never been a favorite for me. I guess it's because I prefer warmer shades on my eyes.
To day I tried to work with this color and my look turned out a lot more purple than taupe! This base did make the overall look very cool toned.
-Maybelline Color Tattoo in Tough As Taupe
-Urban Decay Fishnet Eyeshadow on the lid
-Sugarpill 2am Eyeshadow on the lid
-Urban Decay Underground Eyeshadow on the outer corner and crease
-Urban Decay Zero Eyeshadow on the outer corner
-The Balm Adagio as a brow bone highlight
-Sugarpill Velocity Eyeshadow on the lower lash line
-Maybelline Master Precise Ink Eyeliner Pen
-Mary Kay Lash Love Mascara
I'm actually pretty happy with how this came out! Maybe I'll use Tough As Taupe now.... I think this would be a nice look for prom too because it's bold but not crazy dramatic.
Would you wear a look like this? What's your favorite cream eyeshadow?
