Hi, I'm Erin Hendley, professional makeup artist, and today I'm going to show you which brown eye shadow has a khaki undertone. When we think of undertones, we usually think of warm and cool, which is red base and blue base. So when we think of undertones for brown colors, it is the same but just slightly different. We're going to compare these two browns right here. We have our very warm base brown, which has a red to it. And then we also have our colder brown here that you can't tell by looking at it, it does have a bit of blue to it, but it's going to read more taupe base and just a more natural brown as opposed to red in it. So when we go to our khaki brown, it's just going to be a little more earthen looking. Think granola bar, that's really what our khaki based undertones are going to look like and our browns. They really work with the skin and they don't stray too far. So these colors work well with all complexions, really. The red reads a little too orange on pale complexions so the khaki based browns really work well on multiple skin tones. It's a universal color. It's considered a neutral in a staple piece in our makeup wardrobe. So the important thing is really just to look and make sure that it's earthen looking. And just not red based. Which is going to give you that khaki feel. I'm Erin Hendley, and I just showed you which brown eye shadows have khaki undertones.
