We might be dipping our bare toe nails into all things bright and Spring-like, but browns, bronze and taupe are three strong Autumnal colours we're going to carry with us as we head into Summer. Taupe eyeshadow, along with cream-based eye products were all the buzz at New York fashion week with designers including Charlotte Ronson and Rebecca Taylor bringing earthy, tonal looks to the eyes. And while nail polish is taking us all the way to the fun side of the colour wheel with neon, we're also seeing a push towards bronze and brown shades, most notably from Orly, Sally Hansen and Mr Tom Ford (and when he talks, we listen!). So if you want to get all earthy, bronzed, brazen goddess on your bad self, let's do this.
Brown isn't necessarily the most exciting hue in your makeup palette, but this Spring the somewhat drab colour has received a burst of new life. From rich caramel to shimmering coffee, this toasty tone was first spotted on the top Autumn/Winter fashion runways ranging from Dior to Rodarte. This neutral hue has replaced black as the smoky eye mainstay. Plus, it is a perfect update to your favourite neutral polishes. Café mocha, anyone?
