Yay! First AMW Version for the year 2011! It has been taking me time to create tutorials lately because of the same reasons! So before I go on blabbing, I've created a look perfect for office meetings or just regular day at work! A fresh and natural look that spells "Prepared, Organized, Ready-to-face-the-day!".
This type of eye makeup I've done does not alter the shape of your eyes, there's no corrective styles done, instead, just played with neutral colors to give a well polished look!
Prior to eyeshadow application, I choose to brighten up the undereye area with The Body Shop's Lightening Touch. You can choose to use your preferred eyeshadow base, in my case, since I don't have oily lids, I chose NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil in Yoghurt as an eyeshadow base!
In this tutorial, I am using all the colors of L'Oreal OpenEyesPro Palette in Beige Harmony. Using a fluffy eye crease brush, I applied the lightest shade over the entire eyelid on top of my NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil in Yoghurt base.
Using a flat shader brush, apply the e/s (as pointed with the brush on photo below) onto the crease with a patting motion to create depth and dimension.
Using the same crease brush or even a smaller version of the brush, apply the pointy tip on the outer-V corner of the eyes! Blend out harsh lines.
Step 4: (optional)
Since the L'Oreal OpenEyesPro palette is very shimmery and natural in person, I wanted to create more depth on the outer-v, in doing so, I am using MAC Mineral Eyeshadow Odd Bits (from MAC Colour Craft Collection). Adding more as go on.
Do not forget to apply the same eyeshadow shade on the lower lashline.
Step 5:Using the sponge applicator, I pat a bit of the gold shimmer on the inner 1/4 of the eye for that "wide awake" and "bright" look!
Apply ELF Cream Eyeliner in Black on the upper lash line. You can choose to wing your eyeliner but I chose to make it more natural.
Apply Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes in 1L on the waterline.
Curl your lashes and apply coats of your favorite mascara. I am using my favorite Etude House Proof 10 Henna Fix Mascara in Black. Fill in your brows with your favorite brow powder or pencil. I am using Tears Line and Mode Autobrow in 04.
