Taupe is the perfect color and texture for a one-and-done eyeshadow! I have light-medium olive skin tone and light brown eyes and Taupe adds both a brightening effect and depth. There’s a mild multi-dimensional effect with a warm taupe base and satiny beige overtone. I have many Alima Pure loose eyeshadows and I was hesitant to try this color because it just seemed so basic but it is now my favorite. The color is neutral and nondescript but flattering and that’s what also makes it a universal backdrop for the rest of your look. Taupe is swatched on top above Paris, its sparkly cooler toned cousin.
