How to: Neutral eye makeup

Hello Lovelies!

I'm back from skiing and in one piece! :) I did a tutorial for a neutral eye makeup. A tutorial everyone can follow as it's full of pictures (click to make bigger).


Here is what we're going for:


So, let's just start.


1. Start with a clean base (I've used jojoba oil to remove the previous makeup, that's why I'm shining :D).
(extra step: Apply primer if you want.)


2. Take a big brush, anyone will do.


3. I'll be using these 2 colors. The lighter one for the base, the darker one for the crease.


4. Apply the base color all over the eyelid


5. Take a smaller brush for the crease


6. Start at the outer corner of the eye and continue to the inner side of your eye


7. Apply more in the outer corner (to make it darker) and some under the lower lash line

8. Take a clean brush (the bigger the better) and smudge!

9. Apply your favourite mascara :)


Ta-dah! Easy right?

And the best part? You can use any colors you want to make it bolder :)

The result:


This very natural makeup goes great with red lips!

Jojoba olje si uporabila namesto primerja? Make up tako ostane manj časa na očesu ali ne?

Helena (XOXO Parisky) said...

Cchaotic: ne ne, z jojobinim oljem sem očistila prejšnji makeup :) In definitivno makeup z jojobinim oljem ostane zelo malo časa :/

Thanks for this wicked picture tut! I'm pretty sure that ladies with a similiar eyeshape will bow to you now as vids are sometimes too fast for beginners. Damn, I remember the times trying to follow Lauren Luke's steps. She should have better used the slow motion modus for me as I was to silly to know how to blend. ;-)

Mylanqolia: Thank you! :) I really hope so! I agree videos are too fast, I've been there and I had to rewind like a 100 times :P
