Taupe eyeshadows are an essential part of everyone’s makeup and beauty stash, as matte taupe eyeshadows have a number of different uses – here’s our pick of the best.

Whether you’re using a matte taupe eyeshadow in your crease, as an all-over wash, adding the shadow underneath your eye, using it for eyebrows or as a contour shade, finding the perfect shade for you is a must.

Here’s our pick of the best matte taupe eyeshadows.

MAC Omega

To look at, it might not be the most interesting shade, but once you apply this shade you’ll see how incredibly versatile it is. It’s a mid-to-light cool-toned brown with a grey undertone.

It’s not that dark so it’s great as a transition or a crease colour, but you can wear it all over your lid as a wash by itself too. It’s a favourite to fill in your eyebrows as well.

Bobbi Brown Eye Shadow Taupe

This shadow goes on smooth and silky, plus it never creases, even after a long day, nor does it flake or smudge. Depending on the application it can look soft and subtle, or deep and bold. It’s one of the most pricey single shade shadows to buy, but it certainly doesn’t skimp on quality.

Maybelline EyeStudio Color Tattoo 24hr Cream Gel Eyeshadow Permanent Taupe

Permanent Taupe is a stone grey shade with undertones of blue. This will look amazing on paler skin tones and would look gorgeous on people with green or even blue eyes. It is a creamy matte finish and can act as a base for any smokey-eye look. These shadows are a dream to work with, they have a velvet-like touch and a soft creamy consistency that blends amazingly. The creme shadows feel so lightweight and are highly pigmented with incredible lasting power.

NYX Nude Matte Eyeshadow Bare My Soul

Bare My Soul is another one of those shades you’ll find yourself using for multiple things. It’s incredibly priced, so even if you don’t fall in love with this shade you won’t feel any guilt buying it. It’s extremely pigmented, lasts really well and has a beautiful cool tone that makes it perfect for eyebrows.

Clarins Ombre Matte cream eye shadow Taupe

A major formula innovation, Clarins' cream eye colours combine the smoothing effects of a cream with the long-wear of a powder. A very grey taupe, this applies beautifully and smoothly with either your fingers or brush. It’s a silky, light-weight eye shadow that smoothes on like a cream and transforms into a long-lasting powder upon application.
