The Non-Basic Neutral Eye Look To Copy ASAP

Going off the fashion week looks we're still obsessing over and our favorite celebrity Instagram accounts, it seems safe to say that the blue makeup trend is still going very, very strong. But we get it: Not everyone wants to rock bold cerulean across their lids — or even just along their lower lash line.
That's where color-shifting, duo-chrome pigments come in. One shade duo in particular is perfect for making the transition from neutral to bold so much easier: brown-to-blue pigment.

MAC's Club is a tried-and-true favorite in this category. The base of the pigment is a neutral, mid-tone brown, yet when it catches the light, bits of iridescent blue sparkle catch the eye.
We love wearing the shade solo across our lids, topped off with lots of black mascara, but it can be worn in a multitude of ways. Ahead, check out our favorite duo-chromatic brown-blue shadows for every price point and texture.

This shade is a classic for a reason: It's highly pigmented, never goes on patchy, and can even be used wet as a liner.

This palette is a steal at less than a round-trip subway ticket, but we'd get it even if it just had the "definer" shade, which is basically a dead ringer for MAC's Club, though not quite as pigmented.

Fans of loose pigments will dig this pot from Makeup Geek. The shade can be swept on dry (but prepare for fall-out) or used wet for an intense finish that shifts every time you turn your head.

This graphic eye uses duo-chrome shadow to create a fun, geometric wing. Dust a matte brown shadow across your lid, then pack a color-shifting shadow onto the outer corners of your eyes, extending it out into a wing. Finish off with a bit of liquid liner to further emphasize your gorgeous look.
