Everyday makeup

When I go to school, I do my makeup very simple and natural looking. Not a big fan of that ten pounds of foundation and raccoon eyes. So I do my best, where I have kinda alot of makeup on, but it doesn’t look like I am. I switch my everyday makeup from time to time, but they all fall into the same category, neutral.

The first thing I did was to apply Urban Decay Primer Potion and NYX jumbo eyeshadow pencil in milk all over my eyelids. This creates a nice light white, sticky base for the eyeshadow to stick to. After that I applied the MAC eyeshadow in Vanilla as a highlight to my brow bone and the inner tear duct and naked lunch all over the lid.

After doing this I applied Omega eyeshadow by MAC in my crease. Omega is a matte finish so you’ll have to blend a bit, but not too much since it’s a nice light brownish grey colour. And then I took satin taupe, which is a greyish taupe colour and applied it to my outer V, and blended it in with all the other colours. Make sure not to take it too far into the crease and apply some liner. I used black track fluid line from MAC cosmetics.

When you’ve done all of the steps above, just apply some mascara and do the rest of your face, and your done. If you’d like you could repeat the same gradiation of colour on you lower lashline as well, but I prefer to keep the lower lashline free for makeup, and that just makes my eyes look more awake. Here’s the finished look.
