Go-To Makeup Look #2: Natural Love

Hiya!

It’s quite hard coming up with names for these makeup looks, so bear with me.

 

Today’s eye look is modeled after the Too Faced Natural Love Neutral Eye Shadow Collection, a palette I’ve been obsessing over for the past month. Although I wasn’t too pleased with how this look was photographed when I closed my eyes, I’ve been wearing these particular shades together left and right, and I wanted to share this easy, natural and super-cute eye look with you all.

Enjoy 🙂


What You’ll Need

I used the Too Faced Natural Love Neutral Eye Shadow Collection to create this particular look, but obviously not everyone has this palette.

If you’ve got the palette, great! However, even if you don’t own the palette, you can still achieve this look — you’ll just need to work a tad bit harder by finding eye shadow dupes for the shades starred in the picture above.

 

The Steps

1. Before I start any eye look, I like to fill in my brows (NYX Eyebrow Cake Powder), prime my eyelids (Urban Decay Primer Potion) and apply tape to my eyes (this acts as a guide for my winged eyeliner — see image below).

2. A transition shade is a must for any eye look — transition colors make darker shades easy to blend, resulting in a smooth finish. For this look, I used “Nudie” as my transition shade. I buffed this matte beige shade into my crease using a fluffy blending brush.

3. After buffing the transition shade into my crease, I took “Coffee Date” on a more concentrated blending brush and buffed the color into my crease and outer corners of my eyelids. To give the outer-V more intensity, I used “Spoiled” on the same blending brush and applied the shade to the outer corners of my eyes.

4. Because my crease and outer corners of my eyelids looked dark, I wanted to balance out the look by applying a lighter shade on the inner half of my eyelids. So, to bring a little brightness to my eyelids, I patted “Cutie Patootie” on the inner half of my eyelid using a flat eye shadow brush.

5. To finish up the eye look, I applied “Heaven” to the brow bone and inner corner of the eye — this shade serves as a highlight that’ll bring a little light to the eyes.

6. After I finished my eye shadow, I lined my upper lash line and created a wing (Loreal Super Slim Liquid Liner), lined my lower water line (Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in “Demolition”) and loaded up my top and bottom lashes with mascara (Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara).

 

The Result…
