The deepest and darkest espresso
Stila's Java eye shadow is yet another matte hit! The texture is a deep and rich espresso brown. The texture is smooth and makes for a beautiful soft liner, or a staple brown smokey eye look.
I love wearing Java with simple beiges and warm browns. Use Stila Starlight on the lid and browbone as a wash. Using a MAC 217 Crease brush (or any similar), use a simple medium matte brown in the eye socket (try Stila Puppy, or Stila Eden for a warmer brown). With a dampened eye liner brush (I love the MAC 263 or 266 Angled Brushes), dip them into the Java shadow and use as you would regular eyeliner on the upper lashline. To transition this look into evening, take a MAC 219 brush, dip it into Java, and blend into outer corners and crease. Take the 219 again and smudge Java lightly on the lower lashline.
