One of my latest posts was on how to wear colored eyeshadows tastefully. Now I am going the other way, I have been loving neutrals! Some neutral colors have very interesting tints to them, there are so many ways you can wear them! A while back I did a post featuring my favorite neutrals from mac, and I still love those, this is going to be on how to spice up any basic neutral eye!
When you are creating a look, you want a balance. Obviously make sure it is even of both sides, but a balance between shadows and light. Any area that you naturally see a shadow, like the hollow of your cheekbone. For more on contouring the face, check out my last post!
Last but not least, light is just as important. I would go with something that has a hint of shimmer in it. I love mac's Crystal Avalanche, it has a light pearl to it that looks amazing in the inner corners of your eyes and as a "spotlight" highlight in the center of your lid. You could also use this to highlight the brow bone if you want a lifted affect.
I hope you enjoyed this basic neutral eye that can be super natural or smokey depending on how much product you apply! This look is very versatile, you can never have enough neutrals! At least that is what I keep telling myself as an excuse for another trip to the mac counter...
Keep a look out for a brush basics post, along with a water pollution awareness post. Feel free to comment me any post ideas, thanks for reading!
