Top Five: Sepia Eyeshadow

Toffee, Caramel, Tea, Honey, Sepia. All of these encompass one trend which populated the Catwalks this year and is one which looks set to continue well into the spring; from the toffee tones of the Stella McCartney Autumn/Winter shows to the Val Garland tea-stained eyes for Erdem Spring/Summer ’16.

Tea, honey, caramel… which ever you prefer to call it, these warm, muted shades of brown hark back to 90’s Grunge; Combine with a nude lip and bare skin and you have it!

I actually created a sepia eye on the beautiful Lily Travers for a shoot a couple of weeks ago. I ended up using a couple of the shades from my Viseart No1 palette as I wanted a sheer but creamy finish; It looked stunning – even if I do say so myself ;)

Here are my Top Five sepia inspired eyeshadows…
A beautiful, velvety cream to powder shadow which can also double up as a corrector, lipstick or blush. Easily bendable and housed in a refillable bamboo compact.
Haut Raw Pigment in Tiger ($29.50 CAD) (V, GF)
Tiger is a multipurpose loose pigment in a beautiful soft, deep sand toned shade. Completely versatile, the pigment can be used neat or blended with other products to create the desired effect.
Flash is a mushroom-y taupe shade in a matte, cream formulation. Sheer and hydrating, it can be worn alone or as a base for powder shadows.
A warm, slightly shimmering brown shadow with a hint of gold. A beautiful shadow which gives a glow rather than outright sparkle.
A smooth, cream shadow with a velvety texture. Barbados is a warm, soft peachy bronze with a very slight shimmer. Understated and flattering.

Would you wear a sepia toned eye this spring? Which are your favourites?
