Makeup Tutorial: Simple Neutral Eye Makeup

Hello Ladies! Here comes another blog post for the week but this time around, it's a tutorial. Finally! Haha! After my eyebrow tutorial, I finally had the guts to post another one.

Don't worry cause this tutorial is so easy. I tried to come up with a simple look which I think anyone can do. I also used colors that are very wearable and easy to find. This look is very versatile and perfect for any occasion. No special blending skill is needed to achieve this.
Alright, let's begin... First, here are the things you need. Btw, I already prepped my face, including blush and brow makeup prior to the tutorial.

1. Eye Primer (Optional)
2. Bronze eyeshadow
3. Copper Eyeshadow
4. Brown Eyeshadow
5. Highlighter Eyeshadow (White/Champagne/Gold)
5. Pen/Liquid/Gel Liner
6. Black Mascara
7. White Eyeliner

Step 1: Prime your eyelids with your favorite primer. In this tutorial, I used an eye primer and then put cream eyeshadow to add more vibrancy to the color. Make sure to prime not only your lids but also your lower lash line.

Step 2: Using any eyeshadow brush, apply the bronze eyeshadow as lid wash. Don't go beyond your crease cause we want it as natural as possible. Even it out and fade it towards your crease.

Step 3: With a smaller brush, apply the copper eyeshadow on the inner 2/3 of your eyes then blend in the brown eyeshadow on the outer 1/3. Blend blend blend! It has to be seamless. Lining your lower lashline will add more dimension to your eyes. Plus, it puts the whole look together. Again, apply it on your lower lash line and not your water line. You don't want to irritate your eyes, do you? Errrr... I need a more stable hand for taking close up shots.

Step 4: Highlight the corner of your eyes and your brown using your light eyeshadow. For this look, I used a champagne based eyeshadow. This step is essential to make your tired eyes look well rested. Don't go over board with the highlighter. You still want it appropriate for the day.

Step 5: Get your favorite eyeliner and do a simple thin wing to accentuate the natural shape of your eyes. If you want a more natural look, you can use brown pencil liner instead.

Step 6: Curl your lashes and make your eyes pop by applying black mascara on your upper and lower lashes. You'll immediately notice the difference it will make. DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP!

Step 7: Lastly, seal your look by lining white eyeliner on your waterline.

Voila! That easy! I highly recommend this look for ladies who are afraid to do crease blending. It's also for women who are on the go and can only spare a few minutes for makeup.

You'll see how versatile this look is by just changing your lipstick.
You can go au naturale by using neutral lipstick (Lipstick: LA Colors Lipstick in Caramel Cream, Lipgloss: No.7 High Shine Lipgloss in Tease)
Or do the classic red lipstick look (Lipstick: MAC Lipstick in Russian Red)
Be daring and use bold colors like fuchsia pink (Lipstick: MAC Lipstick in Impassioned, Lipgloss: Maybelline Superstay 10 Hour Stain Gloss in Pink Plush)

It's actually my current favorite look cause it's quick and easy and I like partnering my MAC Impassioned with it. :)
