Colour crush..........Mink Brown!

A plethora of *minky* shades.
Mink is a neutral shade, it is essentially a grey brown, it is a brilliant base shade to *smoke up* as well. It can be used subtly as a colour wash across the lid or it can be the perfect *foil* for a stronger *pop* of colour whether it is with a high octane shade of liner like: Emerald, Teal, Copper, Antique Gold or with a high coloured lip like: Coral, orange,Hot pink, red. It just makes a fabulous base shade which allows you to either play it down and keep the look muted or to inject that added hint of vibrancy.
A look I created around a *mink* shade of eye and a little extra *drama* with smokey black liner.
Everyday Creamy Texture:The look was created around the Gilded Mink Pixi pencil £12.50.

Everyday Powder texture: Bobbi Brown Eyeshadow in Sable £16.50

Blow the budget: Tom Ford Quad in Golden Mink £62.00 (also note this is a mink with a yellow toned pigment opposed to the greyer minks) .

Eye Pencil: Urban Decay 24-7 eyeliner shade Underground Approx £13.00

Nails: rather than being too matchy/matchy these Chanel shades would look exquisite on both hands and toes.

A great Value Mink brown lip colour: ELF mineral Lipstick in Bare Brown £5.00
