Neutral doesn't need to be boring. In fact it can be awesome! I'm going to show you my go-to-look. I am only going to show you what products I use on my eyes and lips because different faces need different face products. Like I, have acne prone skin, and wear different makeup on my skin than that off a person with dry skin. Ya get my drift?
The best part about this look (well, and about all my looks) is that its drugstore! Meaning all these products should be easily obtained at places like CVS, Walgreens, RiteAid, Target, Walmart, etc. and are relatively inexpensive.
And I LOVE all of these products too! Love, love, love! Here's the list:
(Disclaimer: All prices are from drugstore.com, prices vary upon location!)
1. Physician's Formula Baked Eyeshadow Pallet in "Baked Oatmeal" $7.95
2. L'oreal Lineur Intense Carbon Black Felt Tip Eye Liner $8.50
3. Covergirl Lash Blast Waterproof in Black or Blackest Black $7.65
OR when the weather gets cooler and I don't need waterproof, or maybe you don't sweat and need waterproof!, I adore L'oreal Telescopic in Blackest Black $9.49
4. Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss in "Pink Whisper" $6.99
5. Big Fluffy Eye Shader brush from the EcoTools 5 Piece Set $10.99 (for the whole set!)
6. Dome Eyeshadow Brush and Crease Brush from CVS Brand, Essence of Beauty[EOB] (I got mine in a set for like $5 or $6)
Ok here we go!
First, I apply a base to my eyelid. I find that just a simple concealer works well. A base will prevent your shadow from creasing and make it last longer and stay pigmented!
Next, I take the medium shade from the trio and apply it all over my lid with the EOB Dome Brush. After I'll take the darkest shade and using the EOB crease brush I apply it in my crease. The crease is that space between the edge of your lid and the bottom of your brow bone. I swirl the color in until I get my desired color and depth. Finally, I take my big fluffy Eco Tools eye shader brush and sweep the lightest color under my eyebrow as a highlighter. To help make my eyes look bigger and more awake, I'll also sneak some of this color in the corner of my eye.
After that I apply the liquid liner! I like to start in the middle of my eye and work my way out and then go back and work from the in to the middle again. Then apply mascara and gloss and you're good! Simple, easy, neutral and great for everyday at work, school, anywhere!
Why do I sound like an infomercial? Haha, pictures! Sorry I don't have one of the look, because my mom's camera totally washes me out and mine is still unusable!
Products. Note, sometimes the PF Eyeshadow doesn't have those colors in that order!
Brushes by their respected colors and numbered! (Sorry it came out small!) This pic reminds me of a bonfire haha :)
Again, sorry for the small numbers! A diagram and I actually have the look on! Photo does no justice!
Hope you enjoyed it!
