How cool is that? Ditte says: September 9th, 2009 at 11:07 am As singles – don’t really see these two working together as the typical duo (one all-over lid color and one crease color). Reply Priscilla says: September 9th, 2009 at 11:22 am Ohhh so pretty I’d use the taupe for lid and the darker brown for crease/outer v and I’d add ricepaper e/s for browbone I love ricepaper I think it goes well with neutrals and greens. I think you could do one helluva brown smokey eye!! Reply Alexis says: September 9th, 2009 at 12:41 pm I agree with Priscilla… the only thing I might change up is to add a lighter color on the inner 1/3 of the eyelid for a more neutral look… maybe MAC Grand Entrance or another soft champagne color :). I do love a smoky eye, though… especially with taupe colors! 🙂 .-= Alexis’s last blog post… Flakes =-. Reply Kate & Zena says: September 9th, 2009 at 12:50 pm I’m going to be really obvious and say the golden shade for lid, taupe for the crease and outer v. Line upper lashline with liquid or cream black eyeliner giving it a tiny cat eye flick. Line lower lid with a black eyeliner pencil and a smudge it a bit. Add two or three coats of volumizing black mascara, a little pink on the cheeks and a peachy-pink lip (or nymphette). Put on a white button-down shirt, black pencil skirt, black pumps, do a little hair curling and a few gold or silver bangles and Poof! Catwoman for the world! I really like typing out Poof! for some reason. It’s fun. Reply Kate & Zena says: September 9th, 2009 at 12:52 pm P.S. Don’t forget the berry nails. I’m loving Sally Hansen’s Salon Nail Lacquer in Beet Stain. Reply Katherine says: September 9th, 2009 at 12:54 pm Too warm for my pinky toned fair skin! I think I’d look like a zombie. 🙁 Reply Karen says: September 9th, 2009 at 1:13 pm Great ideas, ladies! Keep ’em coming… I still have the pan sitting here on my desk. Maybe I’ll try a couple of these ideas on my afternoon break. Does anybody else get a Satin Taupe vibe from the taupe shade? Reply Kate & Zena says: September 9th, 2009 at 1:16 pm Katherine, You’d be surprised. I have the same kind of skin tone (pink/blue vampire pale) and some of those darker tones look absolutely beautiful on very fair skin. I have a color called coppery brown (dark brown with copper flecks) and I love how it looks as a crease color on me. Reply Karen says: September 9th, 2009 at 1:18 pm Hi Kate & Zena, Vampire pale is so cool … we need to get you some fangs, ASAP, so you can join the cast of True Blood. 🙂 Reply stealing beauty says: September 9th, 2009 at 1:22 pm i have this kalahari and also corduro = cordura? i mix and match their colors, it is best for fall and winter.. .-= stealing beauty’s last blog post… MAC Foundation Reviews =-. Reply Kate & Zena says: September 9th, 2009 at 3:04 pm LOL Karen! As long as they didn’t film me under fluorescent lighting. I look tanner under fluorescents for some reason. Does it help that I have a bit of my Texan accent left? Reply Karen says: September 9th, 2009 at 8:25 pm Hi Kate & Zena, Totally… once you get in with the vamps you can introduce us to Vampire Bill and Vampire Eric. Hopefully they won’t want to eat us. Spare Tabs, please!!! Reply Meghan says: September 9th, 2009 at 4:28 pm looooove this shadow! i’ve had it for about two months now and use the taupe as a base all the way up to the brow, then cover lid with Benefit’s cream shadow in Birthday Suit and finally utilize the golden brown as a crease shadow and along the lash line. .-= Meghan’s last blog post… iVillage Gets a Makeover! =-. Reply Karen says: September 9th, 2009 at 8:25 pm Hi Meghan, OH! I have Birthday Suit (one of my faves!). Will have to try this look, fo’ sho’. Reply Kate & Zena says: September 9th, 2009 at 9:43 pm Do I look like someone who would eat a poor little kitty like Tabs? I’m having enough problems trying to get a rough draft done for tomorrow for class to want to bother with a troublesome kitty. I’ll just print out the whopping one and 1/4 page and ask the teacher for help tomorrow. I think I’d be a vegan vampire. The only blood I can ever tolerate seeing is my own. I get grossed out when other people are bleeding and hand them a band-aid whether they want it or not (I keep an arsenal of band-aids in my purse due to my clumsy habits). I’d find a way to eat only human food and live. Reply Jenna says: September 10th, 2009 at 7:40 pm I own this! The shadow on the left though looks waayyyy different in real life. Much paler and not orange at all! Maybe it’s my computer though making it look odd… I wear the left color on the lid and the purple color on the crease. I love it!
