This Runway Beauty Trend Won’t Get You Into Trouble With HR
When you think of runway trends, the first thing that usually comes to mind is, “So high-fashion, confirm cannot use to the office or anywhere.” (Although I did try wearing one runway trend to the office months ago.) But this season, one runway trend seems actually wearable to the office: shades of taupe.
Seen across S/S ’19 catwalks like at this Antonio Marras show, the wearable shade proves that neutral hues are not boring and can actually be gorgeous and sophisticated.
In fact, a taupe eyeshadow is an ideal addition (if you don’t already have one) to your office makeup routine. It’s neutral enough, so won’t raise any eyebrows, but will ensure you look like the boss babe you are.
Opt to wear taupe eyeshadow by itself or go for a monochrome look—pairing it with blush and lipstick in similar shades—that is perfect for the office. You can always add a hint of shimmer to take it from work to after hours. Don’t know how to pick the right taupe that will make you look dope? Scroll through the gallery to use taupe as the monotone K-Beauty trend.
