This time I was feeling a bit Taupe, so I decided it was time to do a DIY taupe eyeshadow. I wanted something light and shimmery that could be used with almost anything and a medium matte Taupe for the eye crease.
So lets get started, first off I decided what colours I was going to use and got prepared.
I mixed up my basic oxide blend that will be the basis of the colours.

Then added my white base blend that gives the adhesion and slip and kept tweaking until I had a universal matte taupe that I was happy with.
I then took that blend and added shimmers :) (oooohhh love sparkle ) until I had a pale shimmer Taupe to suit all skin tones and a Matte medium Taupe, then I swatch tested them and tried them on my lids for a few days.
