Neutral Eye

Hi. My name is Alida and I am a neutral eye make-up addict. I buy taupe, stone, beige and brown eye shadows like they’re going out of fashion and I don’t see myself stopping soon. I have being doing my every day make-up like this for years simply because it looks polished and put together but not over the top. And if you forego the liquid liner for a thin line of dark eye shadow or leave it out completely, this look will be very natural looking. I am very fond of my liquid liner and LOTS of mascara so that’s what I like to use. Another reason why I love this look so much is because it can be taken from day to night so easily. You simply increase the amount and intensity of the darker colour you apply at the outer corners of the lid and apply a darker shadow underneath the eye. Simply blend it out. I would definitely include liquid/gel liner for night time if you don’t like wearing it during the day. Finish it off with a rosy cheek and lip colour of your choice et voila. A beautifully simple yet ‘put together’ look. (Don’t judge the stray hairs in my eyebrow region, I’m letting them grow a bit so I can do a proper eyebrow shaping tutorial for you.)

If you try this look and love it, please share it on Instagram and tag (and of course follow) @simplydbeauty. I’d love to see your versions! 

  1. I start by applying foundation to my face and filling in my eyebrows. If you want your eyeshadow to last longer, I would suggest using a good eye primer (I know Urban Decay and Smashbox have excellent ones).
  2. Using a flesh-toned colour (I used NYX’s Taupe), sweep the eye shadow over your entire eye lid surface with a fluffy eye brush.
  3. With a smaller eye shadow brush, apply a taupe eye shadow (I used Maybelline’s Color Tattoo in Permanent Taupe) and blend well.
  4. Using a clean eye shadow brush, apply a slighly darker shade to the outer corners of your eye lids (I used Inglot’s 112R (the striped colour in my Inglot Palette)). Blend it inwards and upwards. Apply a highlighting colour under the brown bone (I used NYX’s White).
  5. Use the same dark colour or a darker one if you wish (I used the darkest colour in my Inglot palette, 329) on a small angled brush/pencil brush and work it into your lower lash line.
  6. This step is optional but I always just blend this shadow with my finger to ensure there are no harsh lines.
  7. Apply liquid/gel/pencil or powder liner (black for a more defined eye, brown for a more natural eye). I used Michelle Ori’s Fast Liner in Black.
  8. Apply a few coats of mascara (I used Stila’s Glamoureyes) to finish. For a more defined eye you could apply eye liner to your water and tight lines but for day to day I don’t think it’s necessary.
