Simple Neutrals Makeup Tutorial

Since Spring is nearly here, I wanted to share a simple, neutral look that is great for daytime wear.  It’s the perfect polished look for going to class, traveling, or attending a ball game (Spring Training is finally here!)–really just anytime when you want to look fresh and put together. There are only a few steps, so this look can be created on the go if necessary. Below are the products that you will need to achieve this look:

get a tint tinted moisturizer (I wear the shade buff)
please hold eye primer
i-mark eyeshadow in biscotti

i-mark eyeshadow in tiki
keep it going waterproof gel eyeliner in exposure (I use the dark shade for this look)
scanda-lash mascara in blacklash
good glowing blush in sun love glo
glow baby glow lipgloss in pink crush

To start the look, apply get a tint all over your face, being sure to blend it into your hairline, jawline, and neck. If you need more coverage, you can apply a foundation, but I like using this moisturizer to even out my skintone when I don’t want to wear a lot of makeup. Next, apply please hold eye primer to your entire lid and under the eyes (this product also conceals dark circles) if you need coverage there. I left my eyebrows natural since this is such a simple look, but you can always fill them in if you wish.

To begin the eyes, sweep i-mark in biscotti all over the lid from the base of the eyelashes to underneath the brow. As you can see, it just adds a nice highlight and is not very pigmented.

Next, apply i-mark in tiki to the creases of your lids.  Start at the lashline in the outer corner of your eye and draw the shadow in about halfway along the lashline.  From there, follow the crease of your eye, bringing the shadow all the way in towards the inner corner.  Sweep the color back and forth in your creases with a rainbow motion.  After applying tiki, go back and blend the edges so that you don’t have any harsh lines.

Apply keep it going gel eyeliner along the outer corner of the upper and lower waterlines with a flat eyeliner brush just to give the lashlines some extra definition. Connect the two lines in the corner of your eye.  Finish the eyes with 2 coats of scanda-lash on the top lashes and 1 coat on the bottom lashes.

Now that your eyes are done, apply good glowing blush to the apples of your cheeks and blend outward towards your temples. I always put on a little more than I think looks good because blushes fade once they heat up and settle into your skin.

To complete the look, apply glow baby glow gloss to your lips for a nice shine. Now you’re ready for your day!

Here is the finished look:

    Can you do a Megan Fox makeup look? Most of her looks are fresh and healthy but I can never figure out what she is doing to her eyes that make them pop so much with so little makeup on. Least to me it looks like she puts a small amount of make up on her eyes, and yet they look so done up. There has to be a trick! I loooove that natural no make up face that still glows and looks super fresh and beautiful. Hope to see something like this soon 🙂
