Since there's only a couple of days left before school starts again, I thought this should come in handy for a whole lot of us. Of course, a natural/neutral eye makeup look is not only good for back to school but also work appropriate as well. I don't know why it took me forever to post this because it's what I've been wearing for like.... 95% of the time when I go out now - fast & easy yet polished. So let's get started shall we? :D
|I love my beanie! :P|
Step 1: Prime your eyes with Urban Decay's Primer Potion, if you want your eyeshadow to adhere even better you can also apply a light champagne cream shadow over top. Next, gently pack on Bootycall (light champagne pink) all over your lids and remember to reach the inner corner of the eyes for a brightening effect (early mornings suck!).
Step 2: Take a blending brush and apply Tease (dusty purple) to the crease (or eye socket for those who are monolids like me) for some definition
Step 3: Personal preference - I like using a matte highlight color for my brow bone so I used Foxy (matte yellow-white), an alternative would be taking Bootycall all the way up to the lids which makes this look even simpler.
Step 4: You guys know the routine right? - line your eyes (ending it with a slight wing), curl your lashes, apply your favourite mascara and (if you want to take the extra step) pop on some false lashes ;)
Step 5: Line two-thirds of your lower lash line with Busted (dark brownish purple) with a smudger brush or using the fine tip of the Urban Decay shader brush.
And viola! You're finished! Btw, I hope my huge ass green circle lenses didn't freak you out haha :P
Here's the comparison of my toned down re-creation of the original makeup look done by the makeup artist from the photoshoot. My camera didn't capture the original look very well though because I took the picture under artificial lighting at like 1:30am lol. If you want a better idea, the makeup is actually inspired by this photo here. So yes, I had really glowy red cheeks that day and super dramatic winged eyeliner :P
