The Prettiest New Eye Shadow For Fall

What We're Sweet On: Easy, Eye-Brightening Shadow


Finding eye shadow that really accentuates deep-set or hooded eyes without making you look like a zombie can be quite a task, especially since people at makeup counters inevitably try to put you in rich aubergine, emerald, or chocolate shadows, which bring out eyes but also make them look tired, hollow, and heavy lidded. Which is why the new Dolce & Gabbana eye color duo in Cinnamon ($36) has basically turned us into Gollum. We're so, so close to stroking the compact and calling it precious.

This thing is great because it's a mauve and taupe combination that's nicely pigmented, but also light enough not to make anyone look like an inadvertent Taylor Momsen. Plus, the shades really brighten up your whole eye area. It's like a full night's sleep in a couple sweeps of a brush. Plus, it looks great on any eye color, so whether you're a hard-to-complement blue-eyed lady or a brown-eyed girl, it's guaranteed pretty. Oh, and you don't have to have deep sockets to love these colors — they're perfect for anyone who needs a quick fix for tired eyes.

Hey! This duo is pretty versatile, so you can actually layer it in a bunch of different ways depending on what you want. For me, because I'm fair-skinned, I put the pink shade all over my lid and even up past the crease. Then, I use the taupe shadow on the outer third of my lid to create a little more depth. If my skin tone was deeper or less pink, though, I'd probably do the reverse, since the mauve shade would be more of a highlight color than a base.
