Terrific Taupe

Taupe is a grayish nude brown with a hint of purple. There are many shades of this colour & they are  the perfect neutral without being boring.

I have to admit, taupe is one of the all-time classiest colours – I LOVE it!

This taupe dress from Dior is elegant, yet still so fashion-forward.

Find this collection at:

This taupe-covered bed looks sooooo comfy!

Some more taupe inspiration – all of which you can buy at Target! How great is that?!

Taupe Makeup!

Creating a sultry taupe eye is simple – smudge Lid Last Shadow Pen in Gilded Mink all around the eye. The waterproof crayon has a gorgeous sheen that catches the light & creates impact without being too dramatic for daytime. For night, add some black liner & a few extra coats of mascara - lovely!

Find Nail Polish in Mink Grey at:

Taupe is also great on nails – our Nail Colour in Mink Grey is the perfect neutral that is sophisticated & super versatile.

Diane Kruger’s eyes (above) are hypnotizing with a shimmery taupe on the lids & up into the creases and a bit of shimmery light pink added into the inner corners. So pretty!

Try our Shade Quartette in Shades of Taupe, from our Fall 2012 collection, to create a similar look.

This eyeshadow quad looks great on any skintone & illuminates all eye colours – every girl should own one!
