Neutral, Glitter & Peach Makeup

27.12.14


Hello everyone! Today, I am bringing you a tutorial based on the makeup I'm wearing above. This was the look I came up with on Christmas Day but it could definitely be worn for your New Year's celebrations. It features a brown smokey eye, rose gold glitter and peachy lips. So keep on reading if you'd like to find out how I created this makeup.

- Once you've applied your foundation, concealer, contour and blush, prime your eye lids, crease, brow bone and lower lash line areas

- Take a matte medium brown eye shadow and place it on the lid, building the colour to achieve your desired intensity

- Using a fluffy blending brush, blend at the top of the lid into the crease without using any colour and then slowly begin adding the same matte brown to the crease to make the area darker

- Blend a lighter brown shadow, also matte, just above the crease as a transition colour and to add warmth

- Use a creamy matte shade to highlight the brow bone

- Apply any gold eye shadow to the lower lash line and add rose gold glitter - to assist with preventing fallout, dampen your brush with water before picking up the glitter and make sure you use a patting rather than swiping motion

- Now add some eye liner - I opted for black pencil, slightly flicking it out at the outer corner and defining the top of the inner corner in order to accentuate my almond-shaped eyes

- Add mascara and/or false lashes, and the eyes are done
