Golden Glow Eyes

Hey everyone!

     This is my final back to school makeup tutorial, so I thought I would base this on more of a golden natural look. This would be great for an everyday neutral eye, and with a little more mascara, you can easily take this from day to night. This look also works really well with a lot of different lip colors, so let's get started!

Base Color: I first used Bare Study paint pot by Mac all over my lid to create a shimmery gold base. I applied this with a 217 brush and blended up to get a really soft wash of color. This can really brighten up your eyes, so if you want a basic look, you could just use this as your everyday primer.

Lid Color: I w
anted a gold color that was opaque and blendable, so I used Retrospeck by Mac all over my lid with a 239 brush. This has a really fine shimmer to it instead of that chunky glitter you often find in gold shadows, you do not have to put up with the fall out either. When you put this over Bare Study, it creates the prettiest golden glow that will work really well with plenty of crease colors. 

Outer Corner: I applied Cork to my crease using a 275 angled shader brush by Mac. Cork is a really soft and natural warm toned brown, but you can easily build it up depending on how opaque you want it. I also used the 275 to define my outer corner, this added a little shape and it merged really well with Retrospeck. Make sure to blend these well using a 224.


Highlight: I finished off the look with Blanc Type in my inner corners and as a brow highlight using the 219 and 227. I use this color everyday as a highlight, it is the perfect finishing touch to any look. This is also a matte squared finish, which is a really soft form of a matte shadow. This lasts forever because of its texture, and the application is so smooth. You can even add a little of this to the middle of your lid to create the effect of brighter and bigger eyes.

Eyeliner: I used my Tarte Emphaseyes HD liner on my upper lash line. This is really easy to throw in your bag to touch up with throughout the day because it is the travel sized edition, which is only a little smaller then the full sized. This has the perfect fine point to it, which is essential in creating those flawless lines.

Mascara: I decided to use my Sephora Full Effect Mascara for some extra length. The easiest way to take your look from day to night is to add a little mascara and eyeliner. This is the perfect size for carrying with you on the go, and it doesn't clump or smear for easy application. You can also use this on your lower lashes without it smudging down under your eyes. 

Finished Look: This is the final eye look! It is simple, natural, and it will work with plenty of lip and cheek combos. You could add a little of the eyeliner on your waterline if you want to make this more dramatic, or blend a little more or cork on to the outer corner. My main tip for this look is to use a light hand; you can always add more of the product, but it is harder to take it away from a finished look.

That is one of my more natural looks that can be completed in less than five minutes! Tell me in the comments what you do for an everyday natural look, and make sure to follow! Feel free to leave a request for a post, and keep an eye out for my upcoming fall makeup looks. Thanks for reading!
