Tutorial: Easy Neutral eyes

in as much as i wanted to do a video tutorial, i just don't have time to do so. please bear with me if i can only do pictures for now :)

for those who have been requesting for an easy neutral look, here it is:

1. prime lids with an eye primer to help keep your eyeshadow from creasing

2. apply your base color (Champagne Quartz) by patting the color on the lid up to the crease. to get rid of any harsh lines, use a big fluffy eyeshadow brush and do a wiper motion on the crease

3. Using a medium sized blending brush, add a slightly darker color than the one applied on the lid. brush the color (copper sand) starting from the outer part of the lid going in and stopping before getting to the middle of the eyelid

4. Using a smaller blending brush (MAC 226), apply a color darker (Espresso) than the first two shades used. Starting from the outer corner of the lid, go in brushing the pigment up to where the 2nd color ends. Shading your outer-V with a darker color gives more definition to the eyes.

5. Line upper lash lines with a brown eyeliner (UD 24/7 in Whiskey)

6. Curl lashes and apply two coats of mascara (Maybelline Volum' Express)

7. Apply eyeliner on the waterlines and smudge the darkest color of eyeshadow on the outer half of the lower lash lines and your lid color on the inner half.

and you're done:

MAC Prep+Prime
Cinemasecrets concealer
Purederm BB cream
DODO Palgantong Theatrical Powder in Beige
MAC Sculpt and shape
MAC blush in Dainty
NYX lipcreme in Istanbul

i hope you like it!
don't worry, i'll try to come up with a video tutorial soon. by the way, can you suggest an easy-to-use video editor? ^_^
