In days you don’t want to play around with colors i.e. lazy weekend date, quick meetups with friends, try this easy yet fabulous look using one color eyeshadow makeup.
For this tutorial, I used Cover Girl Mono eyeshadow in Mink Vison 21 (CVS, $3.49), sort of bronze/light beige hue.
|Take it up a notch. Use black eyeliner to define eyes!|
As in previous tutorials, I recommend using eye primer prior to eyeshadow application to prevent unsightly creases. It also makes the color more vibrant.
With eyeshadow brush or clean fingertips, apply color on entire eyelids. Highlight your brow area and tear duct (inner corner of the eye) with the same color. To define your eyes, line upper lashline with black eye pencil. For a smokey look, smudge with cotton tip and blend by using small upward strokes. Line again. Finally, apply 2-3 coats of black mascara.
|So fab, so easy.|
Since this is a simple eye makeup, I opted for a bright red lipgloss. You can use different colors like coral, peach or beige.
Quick, easy makeup in five minutes. Other products used as follows:
Face: Body Shop Vitamin C Moisturizer, Revlon Beyond Natural Face Primer, Make Up For Ever Mat Velvet+ Foundation, Milani Pressed Powder (to seal makeup)
Blush/Bronzer: Revlon Beyond Natural
Eye Primer: Urban Decay
Mascara: Bare Escentuals Buxom
Lip gloss: L.A. Girl Platinum Collection (Ruby Red)
|Ready, set, go!|
|Forgive the red eye. Moi inside the theater|
