|Taupe and Rose FOTD|
Notice how the taupe eyeshadow isn't particularly bold or dramatic. If you want to start wearing darker colors on your eyes, you may want to start with neutral shades first. Taupe is an awesome color to try out since it's universally flattering but it is different enough from brown that it stands out.
For this look, I used the following products:

The makeup look itself if really quick and easy. Go ahead and apply your face makeup as per usual, do your brows the way you like them, and then all you have to do is sweep on a good amount of taupey eyeshadow on your eyelids below your crease area and blend, blend, and blend like crazy.
You want to focus most of the taupey shade in your crease area so the shadow looks darker there and it defines your eyes more.

Tip: Make sure that you blend your shadow only until the crease area so that it won't turn out too too dramatic and bold. (unless that's the look you're going for) Use a clean, bare brush to blend if you're new to blending. ;)
After putting on your eyeshadow, just line your lids with eyeliner, pop on some blush and mascara and you're good to go. Easy peasy.
