Matte Brown Smokey Eyes

Back to the beginning when I only owned a couple of eyeshadows, most of the neutral, and about 3 lipsticks, my makeup tended to look almost the same. Going back to those days, I did a bulletproof brown smokey eye using all matte shades.  

Al principio cuando sólo tenía algunas sombras, en mayoría neutrales, y cerca de 3 labiales, mi maquillaje solía verse casi igual. Volviendo a esos días, hice un smokey eye café a prueba de todo, usando únicamente sombras matte.

I realized why we get along with these kind of colors when we start introducing ourselves into the makeup world. A look like this will never fail to look good, it's really easy to spice up by changing lipstick or adding shimmer to the lids. Soft enough to be day appropriate but with enough drama to be able to tell that you're wearing makeup. As we all know, natural shades will enhance your features and keep your beauty the most natural way possible. 

Me di cuenta de por qué nos llevamos tan bien con este tipo de colores cuando apenas comenzamos a meternos en el mundo del maquillaje. Un look como este nunca va a fallar en verse bien, es fácil de intensificar con sólo cambiar el labial o agregando brillo a los párpados. Suficientemente suave para ser apropiado en el día pero con suficiente drama para verse que llevas maquillaje puesto. Como todos sabemos, las sombras naturales van a mejorar tus facciones y mantener tu belleza de la forma más natural posible.
