Look – Soft Neutrals for Thanksgiving

I did this look for Thanksgiving — something natural and simple, but still noticeable πŸ™‚ I did my makeup today for the first time since Thanksgiving, and it was horrible and felt SO, SO very unnatural. Β I was like, “Wow! Β Talk about rusty!” Β By the by, I used Too Faced’s Shadow Insurance for the look I attempted today, and my eyeshadow looked all faded and gross less than three hours later. Β I was quite puzzled!

Oh, and a Mellan story told in photos πŸ˜‰

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Soft Ochre paint pot (neutral beige), Ricepaper eyeshadow (neutral beige), Twinks eyeshadow (medium brown), Woodwinked eyeshadow (dark brown), Urban Decay Stash 24/7 Liner (antique gold), Blacktrack fluidline (black), Plushlash mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: Dior Rose Diamond skin shimmer (soft pink)
  • Lips: All Mine lipstick (medium pink), Posh Life lip gloss (pink)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
  • Substitutes: All Mine = Speak Louder; Posh Life = Pink Poodle

Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply Soft Ochre paint pot all over the lid as the base with the 249. On the inner lid, apply Ricepaper eyeshadow using the 239. Apply Twinks eyeshadow to the middle of the lid. Darken the outer lid and crease using Woodwinked packed on and drag into crease using the 239. Sweep Ricepaper underneath the brow bone to highlight. Finish with Urban Decay Stash 24/7 Liner on lower lash line and Blacktrack fluidline on upper lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with Rose Diamond skin shimmer using the 129. Apply All Mine lipstick to lips, and then top with Posh Life lipglass for color and shine.

Thanks Christine!

Do you apply your liquid eyeliner after eyeshadow or before? Cos I use the shiseido liner & it says I should put it before so as not to clog the bristles with the loose eyeshadow powder, but i somehow prefer doing it after all the eyeshadows :S
