This is a tutorial using UD’s Naked Basics palette which I have reviewed already (you can read it here). It has pretty basic neutral colors and the eyeshadows are all mattes. I am going to create a day look which is subtle, appropriate for office, meetings etc and how after office hours, convert it into a night look with just a few extra steps.
Let’s get started. This is the palette I have used.
- I started by priming the eye with my trusty UD Primer Potion and gave it a couple of minutes to settle in.
- Then using a Sigma E55 shader brush, I applied Foxy all over the lid from lash line to brow bone.
- Taking Naked 2 with a Sigma E25 blending brush, I applied it into the crease, giving some definition and depth to it.
- Using a pointed crease brush, I applied Faint to the outer corner of the eye and halfway into the crease. I blended this color with my fluffy Sigma E40 blending brush.
- Took Venus on a Sigma E30 pencil brush and applied into the inner corners of the eye. And than using the same brush applied Faint into the lower lash line.
- Taking Crave on an angled liner brush, I applied it as a liner on the upper lash line. This gives the eye a more softer look than using a gel or liquid liner.
- Applied mascara, kohl and under eye concealer and Voila! the eye look is complete.
This is the final look, an almost no-makeup makeup look. LOL
And now when its time to get out of office (don’t you love that feeling!), and perhaps you want to go to a friend’s place or shopping, just touch up your makeup and convert the eye makeup into a night appropriate eye look.
- Deepen your crease color by applying Faint into the crease and outer corner with a pointed crease brush and blending out with a fluffy blending brush.
- Using the same pointed brush, apply Crave into the outer V of the eye and a little into the outer crease as well.
- Blend it lightly to soften the edges.
And you are ready for an impromptu night out.
This is the final look
Hope you guys enjoyed this tutorial and I will be back with more eye looks.
