5-Minute Makeup:  Neutrals

Super fast neutral eye I did last week!   I have some tutorials to upload still, but unfortunately, there’s no tutorial for this look, because I really was in a major rush and didn’t have time to record it.  Sorry in advance!

Hope you’re having a fantastic weekend!

You will need the following…

For eyes, start by applying Smudgeproof as your eyeshadow base all over the eye area with the 249. Using the 239, apply Naked Lunch eyeshadow all over the lower lid.  Apply Romp eyeshadow on the outer third of the lid, then lightly blend Bronze eyeshadow in the outer crease and very outer edge of the lid with the 226. Blend Grain eyeshadow with the crease shade and highlight the brow bone . Bring everything together by applying Lucky liner on the lower lash line. Finish by sweeping lashes with Plushlash mascara.

For cheeks, apply Margin blush on the apples of the cheeks and smooth with fingertips.

For lips, apply Giulette lipstick first, and then layer Nymphette lipglass for a complementing lip.

    Lovely; it suits you!!

  13. Abigail

    Ahhh! I love the color of eyeliner! It totally compliments the look.

    Too bad I can’t wear it though, I’ve learned the hard way that copper liners make me look like I have a disease.

  14. Connie

    Super pretty! I am going to try this one tomorrow. Thanks!

  15. Lora

    Wow, that look really suits you! So lovely!

  16. CeeBee

    Super pretty!
    Simple, not overpowering and very, very lovely.

    I absolutely adore your Neutral/Brown looks! Totally inspired my look today! I’ve noticed you don’t use a whole lot of top liner in your eye makeup looks. Any particular reason why?

    Lots of love!!

    • Thank you so much!

      It irritates my upper lash line and causes the area to itch, water, and then sometimes my eyelid/lash line swells and/or gets dry.

  18. Emily

    A very pretty look on you!

  19. Alisha

    I love this look! Can you suggest a lipstick that looks similar to Giulette? Thanks!

  20. I love this look!! I really like the fact that you are featuring lots of permanent colors at the moment. It’s really useful.

    Oh! A question. Is MAC Naked lunch like something that MAC recently launched in Spring Color Forecast? I thought I saw that it was a dupe for an LE product which I might have…

    Hope you had a great weekend :)

    • Thank you! :) Unless it’s recently LE, I don’t allow myself to use any old LEs!

      I totally know what you’re talking about, I think. It’s similar, not a dupe… but I think you could definitely use it instead :)

    I really love this look! I am graduating next week with my Egnglish degree and I have been thinking about what make-up to wear and I’m going to splurge and purchase a Guerlain lipstick! I love it so much on you, do you think it would still look as nice on fair cool-toned skin?

  26. Jolene
