Today I'm sharing an eye makeup tutorial that can be done in less than 10 minutes. The eyeshadow/liner/mascara portion can, at least. 🙂 If your brows are unruly and need a lot of tidying up, that area may take longer. First, there are two preliminary steps I take every single time I apply eye makeup:
1. Pluck any stray hairs on my brows 2. Add primer to my eyelids. (My favorite is the Urban Decay Primer Potion in the Original Formula.)
Once I've done those two things, I move on to the fun part and begin adding color to my lids! Today's look is a tutorial for the look you saw on this post earlier in the week. To create this look, I'm using the Too Faced La Petite Maison palette from Ulta Beauty.
Step 1: Apply a light matte color to the brow bone to define the brow area. I used “Let It Snow” as my brow highlight color.
Step 2: Apply a mid-tone to the crease as a transition color, and use a brush to blend it with the highlight color you applied in Step 1. (Check out my eyeshadow placement guide here if you aren't sure what the terms mean.) I used “Dreams” as the transition color in my eyelid crease.
Step 3: Take the darkest shade you plan to use and apply it to the outer corner of your eyes. For this tutorial, I used the color “Knock Out”.
Step 4: Apply the same dark shade on the lower lash line to give eyes more definition and make lashes appear thicker.
Step 5: Next, apply liquid liner. I prefer to wing mine out to make my eyes appear bigger.
Step 6: Finally, add a nude liner to your lower lash line to make eyes appear bigger. This is the same concept as using white, but it just looks more natural.
Step 7: Apply mascara to upper and lower lashes, then…smile!
Brows: Anastasia DIPBROW in Dark Brown + Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Dark Brown + Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel // Eyeshadow Palette: Too Faced La Petite Maison // Mascara: Too Faced Better Than Sex // Eyeliner: Physicians Formula Lash Boosting Eyeliner + Serum in Ultra Black // Eyeliner: NYX Cosmetics Wonder Pencil in Light (the nude liner for inner eye)
There you have it! It's a really easy makeup look and takes me less than 10 minutes to complete. The most difficult part is always getting the wings on my liner even, but I've gotten pretty good at that since I do it nearly every day.
Please let me know in the comments if you have any questions about this eye makeup tutorial, and I hope you're having a great week!
