Shine Bright Like Gemstone: Sultry Shadows for a Steal

By  February 20, 2014

While we believe black shadow is appropriate for any occasion (especially during the winter), a jewel tone can spice up an ensemble, as well as an eye look. Swap the dull, dark shadow for the richness of a ruby, emerald, sapphire, or even an amethyst to add oomph to your next smoky eye. You can also blend the hues into other tones for a multi-dimensional look. And don’t worry; just because they’re gem tones, there’s no need to splurge with shadows like these:
