For many of us, having a taupe eyeshadow in our makeup bag is as essential as having a little black dress in one’s closet.  I probably own more taupe eyeshadows than any other color.  So when a group of beauty bloggers suggested we post our favorite shade of taupe eyeshadow, I was in.  Read on for my pick…

To me, “the perfect taupe” is that indistinguishable shade of brown-gray. The shade in my makeup collection that best fits that description is MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Cream Eye Shadow 02.  While I normally wear powder eyeshadow, you can’t beat the staying power of the MUFE Aqua Creams. Aqua Cream 02 has beautiful mother of pearl pigments that give off a gorgeous iridescent finish. What’s neat about it is that it’s a chameleon…it changes with the light or whatever other eyeshadow color you pair with it.
