Available in 12 high-impact shades.
NET WT 0.058 OZ /1.65g
Tips and Tricks:
Use a light shade over the entire area from the lash line to the brow line to create the smudge resistant base. Apply a medium shade on the lower lid and blend it into your base shade. Use a dark color along the lash line and outer corner of the eyes as an accent to create the depth in eyes.
Tip: To extend the wear, apply your foundation or pressed powder on entire eyelid before applying your eye shadow. This eliminates any oils your lids may have which can cause your eyeshadow to crease.
A wonderful warm chocolate-y brown
Milani eyeshadows are a hidden GEM! They are the exact size as MAC's pan eyeshadows so you can depot them into MAC empty palettes. Of course, the quality isn't the same as, say, a Dior shadow. But for $3 a pop, you cannot go wrong with any of these.
Java Bean is such a great shade. It's a deep chocolate-y espresso brown with a hint of golden shimmer. It's usable in the crease, outer corner, as a liner...just about anything! It's got a nice balance of gold so it doesn't lean too bronze and maintains its neutrality :) I would pair it with warmer tones, and for a unique look on the eyes, with a sheer lavender on the lids! (Try Bobbi Brown Lilac Shimmer Wash eye shadow)
With a fluffy brush (like the MAC 224), wash a sheer amount of lilac shadow on the lid. Make sure you get the entire browbone and inner corners! Then, using a denser and smaller shadow brush (like the MAC 219 or 239), smudge Javabean on the outer upper lash line, up through the outer corner and crease. Blend, blend blend so it doesn't look like an awkward spot of brown shadow on your lids :) Curl lashes and top with mascara, ballet pink blush (like Shu M Pink 30A), and shimmery pink lip gloss for a feminine and flirty look.
