Basically Is A Matte Brown

This is the perfect neutral brown that is your first step in the smokey eye routine. Sweep this into the crease and lay the foundation for the perfect smokey eye. This can also be used on your lower lash line alone or with Thunder Cloud to pull your eye look together.

This is the perfect matte shade that can be used to highlight the brow bone to define your eyebrow and for a pop in the inner corner of your eye to brighten things up!

Golden Brown is a bronze shimmer and if you want to go really bold, Fizz is a gorgeous copper shimmer. Either of these is the perfect shade to pat on the center of the lid to really make your eyes stand out.

This eyeshadow brings the smokey to a smokey eye. This shade will go in the outer corner of your eye. Layer this shadow according to your comfort zone and don’t do too much at once, a smokey eye can take a wrong turn really fast.
