About this Look

Definitely a light and simple look for day and possibly early evening (as it’s darker in person than in the the photos). Not my typical look, but I thought I’d go more subtle.

Step-by-Step Guide

This look took some time as I didn't have an idea of where I was going at first.  Lots of colors too!  But with these instructions, it should be a 20 min or so look.


  1. Lush Fresh Handmade Color (eyeshadow in a vial) in "Sophistiqué" (lovely cream to liquid in a metallic beige) on lid from inner corner to center lid.
  2. Too Faced White Peach palette "Sweet Fig" on the rest of the lid to outer corner
  3. Too Faced White Peach palette "Peach Ice" over top of "Sophistiqué from the inner corner to 1/4 lid
  4. Contour the eye from outer crease-brow to 2/3 over the lid with ColourPop "Take the Lead" (a mauvish taupe that's really pretty!)
  5. Go over the top of it (blend) on the outer upper brow about 1/2 (right under the eyebrow) with ColourPop "Fire Fly" as part of your highlight
  6. Finish the under eyebrow highlight (the other 1/2) with ColourPop "Let Me Explain" towards your inner eye corner if you like that effect (I do!)
  7. Natasha Denona Glam palette helped to line the eye with "Lash Line" (neutral dark brown; 327CM) for the darker outer "V" bottom and entire top eyeliner, "Center eye Lid" (brown metallic; 331M) for the center bottom eyeliner and "Center Eye Lid" (soft pink frost; 320M) for the bottom inner corner to middle eyeliner (slightly overlapping 331M.)


Aerin Multi Color for Lips & Cheek in 01 Natural (I do think that on me it's one of the best subtle neutral pink blushes in a cream)



  • Guerlain Gloss d'Enfer in 862 (taupe-mauve)
  • On top in the center my favorite metallic lip color, YSL Tatouage Couture The Metallics in 104 (taupe)
