Ashes to Ashes

Not just a cool David Bowie song but also my featured eye shadow of the day. Yes, I am rounding out this un-official NARS week with this lovely, simple taupe with subtle shimmer.

(L to R: Ashes to Ashes and Abyssinia)

I love that this was included in my NARS15 (gift) palette:

I didn't have to add to much on my lid and crease to get this to show. I really thought it might not be dark enough for my NC 42 skin but it showed up as a lovely subtle plummy brown. Since I have been feeling a bit lazy with my makeup I just paired this with Abyssinia (pearly nude) on my browbone and lined my top/bottom lashlines with my favorite black liner, MAC Feline and called it a day.

I think this dynamic trio will be in rotation when I don't want to over think my eye makeup but it will look like I did!

I obtained both shades in my gift palette but both are part of the permanent collection as single shadows.




  1. I love the name of this shadow, although I've never heard the song! It's on my wishlist (as are most taupes) although I'm surprised at how purple it's pulling in your pictures =)

  2. I love Ashes to Ashes! Such a pretty taupe & this reminds me I need to use it more often! :) Love the cartoon lol TGIF!

  3. I think that looks terrific on you. It does look more purple then taupe, but being a purple and taupe fan I am not complaining!

  4. Thanks ladies!

    Yeah taupes pull more purple on me but I'm not complaining either =)
