Tutorial: Neutral Eye with Gold Accent

Hey everyone! Today I have off work, but I had a few errands to run so I still wanted to put on some makeup but didn't want to make it look over the top. It's very rare that I wear makeup on my day off but hey, I wanted to look a little snazzy. Here is my eye look for today!


Eye primer and eyeshadow duo

Eyeliners and mascara
First I started off with Urban Decay Primer Potion to help prevent creasing and make the eyeshadow last all day. Then I used an eyeshadow duo by Smashbox called Grace and placed the light cream color eyeshadow all over my lids up to my browbone. Then I took a fluffy blending brush and blended the light taupe-y color through my crease. Next I took the bareMinerals Big & Bright Eyeliner in the color Cork and put that on my upper lashline and blended it out with the tip of a flat eyeshadow brush. I then used my favorite mascara ever, the bareMinerals Flawless Definition Mascara and just used that on my top lashes. I finished up using the Urban Decay 24/7 mini eyeliner in the color Eldorado on my waterline and lower lashline. This really helped to brighten up my eyes and make them look more awake. Now for the finished look!




There's my look today! I did use a little blush, concealer under my eyes and some mineral powder foundation too. I personally really like how this came out. I wanted it to be really simple and neutral but still have that touch of color by adding the gold.

Let me know how you guys like this!

  1. Great look! It's always fun to add a pop of color to a neutral eye. I tend to do that with purples :)
