Most times in "real life" when I do get a chance to slap on makeup and step out of the house, I am invariably in a mad rush to reach some place in 5 minutes, so I never get the time to actually plan and coordinate my outfit with my makeup. That's one reason why I almost always go for looks that involve a quick liner and some tinted moisturizer. On the rare occasions that I do get the time to put on an eyeshadow, I use a warm brown just because that's a safe pairing with any color. Today's makeup is just that - neutral brown eye makeup paired with a soft reddish coral gloss and a bright blush. Here's a look at the products used and a quick and easy how-to.
|Products Used (Eyes): Urban Decay Primer Potion|
NARS Eyeshadows - Galapagos, Coconut Grove, and Biarritz
Chanel Eyelash Curler, Maybelline MegaPlush Mascara
Brushes: TBS Slanted Eye Brush, Suqqu Eyeshadow Brush L
|Starting with priming the lids with Urban Decay Primer Potion. |
Helps the eyeshadows stay on whole day.
|Apply NARS Galapagos (or any warm brown shadow) to the lid area. |
Blend the edges using NARS Biarritz (matte creamy beige).
I used the Suqqu L eyeshadow brush for this.
|Using an angled brush (I used TBS Slanted Brush), apply a dark brown eyeshadow (NARS Coconut Grove). |
Push the shadow along the roots of the lashes, keeping line thicker along the outer thirds.
|Curl lashes and apply mascara. Also filled in my brows.|
