You may see the title of this and wonder what I am talking about. The Best Single Shade Eyeshadows are those perfect shades that are perfect for creating a wash of color on your lids and get you out of the door in no time. These can be light shades or dark shades, but they all pull your look together in one easy step. I love a nice champagne all over the lid to give that crisp clean shade, but a complex taupe can look like you used a few different shades and you really didn’t.

If you have been reading my blog for any amount of time you will probably know that I am pretty much obsessed with taupes. Pretty much all of my favorite one eyeshadow looks have been created using my favorite taupes! There are a few that are slightly different, but I definitely have developed a preference and you should notice it right away! ha
Shu Uemura ME856 is one of my long time favorites!
NARS Callisto is a gorgeous icy pink silver. It has a brightening affect and is completely metallic. I am in LOVE with it.
Cargo Yukon is a buttery soft medium taupe!
NARS Iraklion is a beautiful rosy taupe shade that leans sort of brown. It is a creamy pencil and is easy to apply.
Laura Mercier Twilight is another one of those amazing pencils that are easy to use, and it is also (you guessed it) taupe!
NARS Lhasa is a purple/taupe. It leans more cool than anything else, but I LOVE it.
L’Oreal Bronzed Taupe is one of the rare drugstore eyeshadows that are flawless. It looks exactly like it’s name, bronzy and taupe.
Chanel Safari is absolutely one of my favorites for every day wear. It is a lighter taupe and almost has some champagne qualities.
Chanel Taupe Grise is a shade that I would lightly dust on the lids to create an easy smokey eye.
Jane Cosmetics Polished Pewter is a cream eyeshadow that is applied with a doe foot! It is a beautiful silvery taupe!
Rouge Bunny Rouge Caress of Mink is a taupe pigment that has so many gorgeous micro sparkles. Really beautiful and I am happy to call it mine!
NARS Gabon is a rich, molten, blacked jungle green that has almost golden olive highlights throughout. I am completely mesmerized by this beauty.
NARS Smoky Eye Kit contains an eyeshadow palette with 3 shades in it. All of the shades inside this palette can be worn on their own to create a beautiful one eyeshadow look.
