Neutral Matte Eyeshadow

Hello Lovelies,

I always love to have a good neutral matte eyeshadow look on hand for days I need a quick look. So I decided to do a simple tutorial on how I do my matte neutral eyeshadow.

Here is how I got this look:

1. Prime your eyes with your favorite eyeshadow primer. I used the Eyeshadow Primer Potion by Urban Decay.
2. Take a matte base color that is basically the same color as your skin and apply it all over your eyelid up to the brow.

3. Take a darker matte cocoa colored eyeshadow and apply it only on the lid till right where your crease is. Also you can smudge a little of this on your lower lash line for a more intense look.
 4. Now take a darker matte brown that you can use for your crease and apply it in a "V" to the outer corner of your eye lid and into the crease. Since I have slightly more of a hooded lid I like to blend my crease out and up more than you regularly would.
5. Take a matte highlight color and apply it under your brow and in the inner corner of your eye to highlight the eye.

6. Then blend out everything one last time to get smooth transitions. Finally add your favorite eyeliner and mascara. I chose to use the Estee Lauder Pure Color liner and my Peter Thomas Roth Lashes to Die for Mascara.

Hope you enjoyed this eyeshadow tutorial!

  2. simple and great for everyday! make sure to cut open the primer potion bottle when no more comes out, so much is hidden in the hard to get areas!! xx
