NARS Ashes to Ashes Eyeshadow

Ashes to Ashes is a shimmery taupe color that goes on sheer and feels super silky on the skin when applied.  When used with primer, it stays on longer - I haven't tried it without primer because I feel it's a waste of eyeshadow.  This baby is one of the most versatile ones I've seen around, and is now part of my make up staple.

It's great used solo for a natural look or if you're in the mood for something glam, this works well as your base color.

If you want to try a more subtle version of the smoky eye (or hesitant to try that look), this is the eyeshadow you're looking for.   The trick is to build up the color until you reach the shade you desire.  To complete the look, apply an espresso-colored eyeliner close to your upper lash line and smudge.  Finally, line your waterline.
