My boyfriend asked me, “Why don’t you do more matte looks?” So fine! Here’s a matte look! I probably don’t do matte looks often because until I got Soft Ochre, I could never find a matte-base that I liked enough. No excuse now, I guess!  The only that annoys me is Blanc Type photographs poorly – it looks a lot whiter than it does in person (in fact, in person, you can hardly tell!). Boo!  Anyone else had that happen to them?

I used Soft Ochre paint pot all over lid, Blanc Type eyeshadow on inner lid, Soft Brown eyeshadow on middle of lid, Brun eyeshadow on outer lid, Copperlate eyeshadow on outer crease, Blanc Type eyeshadow on brow, Grain eyeshadow on lower lash line, Blacktrack fluidline on upper and lower lash lines, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. I wore Margin blush with Dior Amber Diamond SkinShimmer to highlight cheeks. I had Mari-sheeno lipstick (LE) with Dejarose lipglass (LE) and Cult Fave lipglass (LE) on my lips.

I did this neutral look yesterday, mostly because I really wanted to use my Wild ‘Bout You lipstick, which is quite bold.

I used Blonde’s Gold pigment (LE) on lid, Femme-fi eyeshadow (LE) on inner lid, Romp eyeshadow on middle of lid, Cumulus eyeshadow (LE) on outer lid and crease, Satin Taupe eyeshadow on outer crease, Femme-fi eyeshadow (LE) above crease and on brow, Graphblack technakohl on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. I wore Sunbasque blush on cheeks with Dior Amber Diamond SkinShimmer to highlight. I had Wild ‘Bout You lipstick (LE) with Totally It! lipglass (LE) on my lips.

I did this look ridiculously fast — like 5 minutes for the entire face (and to take photos!), and that included originally attempting to use Green Space pigment, hating it, and removing the eye makeup and re-doing it. (We were running late for a lunch with my Mom & sister.)

I used Soft Ochre paint pot all over lid, Goldmine eyeshadow on the inner lid, Patina eyeshadow on middle of lid, Satin Taupe eyeshadow on outer crease and lid, Femme-fi eyeshadow above crease and on brow, Graphblack techakohl on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. I wore Margin blush on cheeks. I had By Degrees slimshine (LE) on lips with Prestigious lipglass (LE) on my lips.

I really, really like this look. It is pretty similar to the look I did for my sister’s high school graduation a few days ago. I don’t normally repeat looks so close together, but since yesterday was Father’s Day, and I know my dad isn’t big on makeup… neutral it was!

What are some of your favorite neutral looks?

P.S. – I am so happy with my eyebrows — they are just about the thickness that I have been working on for the past two months.

I used Soft Ochre paint pot all over lid, Nylon eyeshadow on lid, Ricepaper eyeshadow on middle of lid, Warming Trend eyeshadow (LE) on outer lid, Satin Taupe eyeshadow above crease, Bronze eyeshadow in outer crease, Ricepaper eyeshadow above crease and on brow, Nylon eyeshadow on lower lash line, Blacktrack fluidline on upper and lower lash lines, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. I had Margin blush with Dior Amber Diamond SkinShimmer on cheeks. I wore High 90s slimshine (LE) with Nymphette lipglass on my lips.
