Today's post is going to be another tutorial, and I have been wanting to do this one for a while. This is not the twenty dollar makeup challenge, but I thought I should do something featuring drugstore products. This is a fairly basic neutral eye, and it will go with any look. Let's get started!
Highlight: Next, I am going to work on highlighting the inner half of my lid. This is bringing in more light to my eyes, making them appear larger. I used Cover Girl's Champagne eyeshadow with a 213 brush and softly blended it in. You could use the elf shadow brush for a 213 dupe.
Outer V: If you want to make any neutral look pop, use a darker brown to define the outer "V" of your eyes. I used the Cover Girl Brown Smolder eyeshadow for this step, and it really pulled everything together! I applied this with a 239 brush by patting it down, and then blending it out. Make sure to blend this into the crease, it is a mistake proof way to make sure that you don't over-extend your eyeshadow.
Eyeliner: I am keeping this pretty simple, so I used the elf cream eyeliner in Metallic Olive for my upper lash line. I prefer to apply cream liners with an angle brush, and gel with something comparable to a 210 brush. This allows me to get a really clean line, and fill in any gaps by my lash line.
Mascara: The final step for this look is a coat of mascara! I finished it off with the elf waterproof mascara, the smaller brush lets me coat my lashes from the base.
My favorite part about this is that it looks amazing in any lighting. The shimmer in the highlight color is brightening, not chunky glitter, which is essential to any natural look. Tell me in the comments what your favorite product that is under $10.00 is, and make sure to follow. Thanks for reading!
