Askmewhats Version: "Boring Neutral Look"

Everybody knows I love neutrals. But one blogger friend Alyssa just can't get enough of it! LOL You love me Alyssa, I can feel it from the other side of the world :P

Anyways, she requested for a BROWN brown look. Not the reddish brown look, but this came out a li'l bit reddish brown but I promise you, it is dark brown! lol I guess I just love mixing and blending that it all came out lighter (I love light eye color)

Here's my final look, dedicated to all "boring neutral" lovers out there (including me!)





Let me break it down for you on what products I've used



Numbered on Photo:

1. Cover Girl Eye Enhancers in Mocha - all over lids

2. Milani Java Bean - corner of the eye for the deep set look
3. Bourjois Beige Rose - as highlighter

Not numbered on photo:

1. L'oreal Hip Cream Shadow in Secretive - as base
2. Kate Gradical Eyes PK2 - all over lids for highlighting effect
3. Maybelline eyeliner in Black
4. Paul & Joe Curly Mascara in Brown

Final Look



A new lippie I bought called 4U2 No. 5
No lip balm used, really moisturising!



Me and the "Star of the Day"
CRABBY!!!



Neutrals can really be boring ,
but you can use a bright colored lipstick to brighten up your whole look!
It helps to have a cute crabby beside you ,
so all attention would be diverted to her (yes peeps, she's a SHE) :P
