Makeup Tutorial: Neutrally Glamorous

Makeup Tutorial: Neutrally Glamorous

posted on: 2.08.2013

I bet that title caught you off guard, right? I bet you thought I had made a return to the world of Youtube makeup tutorials, but you would be mistaken. I decided to make a foray into the world of picture makeup tutorials, and I'm actually quite pleased with how it came out. This is a lot easier for me to do than filming an actual tutorial, but one of these days I promise I'll actually film a tutorial. This look is extremely wearable and can be tweaked to your dramatic likings. I hope you enjoy this and let me know what you think of these picture tutorials!
  1. First start by taking a medium brown eyeshadow and placing it in your crease using a soft, fluffy brush. I'm using the MAC 224 brush with MAC Wedge eyeshadow.
  2. Using a stiff, flat brush, take a shimmery neutral eyeshadow and pat it on the lid. You can choose to add glitter here if you'd like. I'm using a MAC 239 brush with Magnolia Makeup's Sugar Cane Pigment.
  3. To deepen up my crease, I'm using a soft, fluffy brush and using a dark brown eyeshadow to basically carve out my crease. In this step, you can choose how dark you want your crease to be. I am using a Crown IB119 Deluxe Crease brush using all three shades of the Inglot Rainbow eyeshadow in 107R. Make sure to wing out the eyeshadow with the brush, like above. Then bring brown shadow to your lower lashline.
  4. Choose a matte eyeshadow a shade lighter than your skintone for your brow highlight, using a big, fluffy brush. I'm using my MAC 224 brush again and am using MAC Brule.
  5. Using your stiff, flat brush again, add an inner corner highlight. I used Urban Decay Sin eyeshadow.
  6. Next, I tightlined my eyes using Urban Decay's Perversion 24/7 Glide-On Pencil. You can skip this step if you have really sensitive eyes.
  7. Using a black gel liner, add winged liner. (If you are scared or don't know how to do winged eyeliner- have no fear! I'm going to be making a pic tutorial on how to do the perfect winged liner)
  8. Curl your lashes.
  9. Apply mascara, and you're done! You can choose to apply false lashes here if you feel like it.
This is a look I wear whenever I'm not feeling inspired enough to do something elaborate. This makes my eyes look impeccable and timeless, with that little additional "oomph" factor. To finish off the look, keep your cheeks neutral. If you want to pump this look up further, pair with a bright lip like I did below (I used Le Métier de Beauté's lipstick in Uma Paro), or keep it tame and pair with a nice nude lip.

I hope you enjoyed this look! Let me know what you think below in the comments.
