Natural Brighter Looking Eye: A Makeup Tutorial

Hello Beautiful!

I hope all of you are doing very well. Today, I am going to share my way of doing natural looking eye that you can wear literally everyday. And did I tell you it just takes me 5 minutes to do? Everybody will be amazed by the way your eyes will look.

What I used to get the eye-look:

Primer: ELF eyelid primer in Sheer.
Brush: Eyeshadow Brushes (I used 2 dome eye-shadow brushes, one angled brush and one blending eye brush).
Eyeshadow: Coastal Scents 26 Shadow-Blush Palette (Click Here to know more about this palette) and one random palette called Opia (Primark) only to highlight.

Eyeliner: Black liquid eyeliner and brown Kohl Pencil liner
Eyelash Curler
Mascara: Black mascara

The Tutorial:

1. Apply eyelid primer on entire eyelids using your ring finger. Let it sit on your eyelid for a few seconds before you move on to the eye-shadows. (not shown in picture)

2. We are doing a natural looking eye. So, first you have to find a matte color (color 1) that matches your skin tone, however, that should be just a bit brighter. Color 1 from Coastal Scents 26 shadow blush palette is exact color what I need for my skin-tone (Yes, it is actually a blush... but if it serves my purpose I do not mind using it as an eye-shadow). Dab color 1 using brush 1 all over lid.
3. Next, apply any dark brown matte color (color 2) along the crease area using an angled eye-shadow brush (Brush 2). Hold the brush at 90º to your crease while applying color 2.
4. Blend everything together very well. You should not see any harsh edges after blending is done properly.

5. Apply any highlighting color (color 3) using brush 1 along the brow-bone and inner corner of eyes (make sure you are using a clean brush to pop the highlighting color really well).

6. Apply your favorite black liquid eyeliner on the upper lid and your favorite brown kohl pencil only along the outer half of lower lash line.

7. Curl your lashes and apply your favorite mascara. 

... and you are done!!!
