On Monday, I took my little sister back to school shopping, and since I was in a shopping mood myself, I figured I’d sneak a few peeks while I was with her. When I shop for clothes, I’ve learned that a neutral look is best. I like to coordinate colors with my outfit, and if they clash, it drives me bananas. In fact, I’ve often tried something on that clashes, and then not liked the outfit–when in reality, I’d have loved it if the makeup matched! Thus, something neutral and easy that can go with everything is ideal. I thought I’d use a smidge of teal to add some pop overall.

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Ricepaper eyeshadow (neutral white highlighter), Gorgeous Gold eyeshadow (green-toned gold), Urban Decay Covet 24/7 Liner (teal), Lancome Oscillation mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: Peachykeen blush (soft peachy pink)
  • Lips: Givenchy Romantic Dandy lipstick (pink), C-Thru lipglass (nude beige)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
  • Substitutes: N/A

Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply Ricepaper eyeshadow to lower lid with the 239. Line lower lash line with Urban Decay Covet 24/7 Liner. Soften edge with Gorgeous Gold eyeshadow smudged with the 219. Sweep apples of cheeks with Peachykeen using the 129. Apply Givenchy Romantic Dandy lipstick to lips, and then top with C-Thru lipglass for color and shine.
