The combination of burgundy and a rich, shimmering brown is one of my favorites. The burgundy keeps things interested, and the combination is insanely flattering–no matter the eye color or season. Alima Pure often nails it with their shades; here are two of my standbys. Merlot eye pencil and shimmering eye shadow in Milan.
This isn't your average brown eye pencil. It's not matte or dark. It's a beige-d up brown with a shimmering cast that veers more silver than gold.
And it's gorgeous, I'd recommend this to anyone. Anyone on the complexion spectrum would look lovely with this along the lower waterline, hazed out all both lash lines for a modern smokey eye, or just along the top line for a minimalist look.
Because it's both lightweight and versatile, this is a great makeup bag staple.
