Even a natural look requires a bit of work, but our tutorial will make it easy for you
Every year beauty trends come in that inspire us, and this year the “no makeup, makeup” look has truly challenged us to learn to blend like never before. At first, I must admit I was not the biggest fan of this look, because the technique was so different. It became less about color pop, and more about creating a blended hue. The face went from being a canvas for the artist to a true focal point.
Of course, the most engaging portion of any facial structure would have to be the eyes. The eyes have always been regarded as the “windows to the soul,” and the beautiful part is that it’s an opportunity to have people experience a gorgeously pigmented beauty look. This look is going to help you really open your eyes. It is great for those of you who have tons of eye space like Mia, as well as those of you who may have more limited eyelid space.
Because this eye look is so smooth, the trick is more in the liner application than anything. You will see in this step by step makeup tutorial that overall it is an easy process to create this gorgeous eye. From social media to the interview room, you can rock this beautiful natural glam eye with confidence.
What You Will Need:
Real Techniques Concealer Brush
Morphe M510 – Pro Round Blender
Morphe M330 – Blending Crease
Sigma F06 – Powder Sweep Products
Jamye Shaw Cosmetics Illumin-Eyes #1
Anastasia Beverly Hills Amrezy Highlighter
Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Palette
La Femme Sparkle Dust #14 Champagne Gold
Step One: Prime & Seal
One of the most important pieces of creating this look is definitely creating a smooth finish on the eyelid before youbegin. You will want to use your Real Techniques Expert Concealer brush to begin. The great thing about this brush is that it spreads any type of concealer or product very easily. If you do not have this brush, you will want a brush that has a medium flexibility of the bristles so that it will allow you to truly build a smooth base.
Grab your Jamye Shaw Illumin-Eyes #1 and cover the entire eye. Use a circular buffing stroke to apply the product with your brush. Don’t forget to cover the tear duct area, as well as really getting the product up into the brow area. After you buff the product in, be sure to give it a triple check to ensure that everything is covered and well blended.
Step Two: Set the Stage
My secret weapon with this eye look is combining the gorgeous gold tones of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Amrezy Highlighter with the base color from the Soft Glam palette Tempera. This combination will really elevate the look from the very beginning. The product combination allows a truly smooth controlled color to be your base. You can see in the photos that Mia’s eye looks seamless and well blended from the very beginning with this color combination.
That is so important for the finish of the eye. If the base combination is not well applied it will look patchy at the end. Take your Morphe M510 brush and swirl it around in both colors, first in Tempera from the Soft Glam Palette and next in the Amrezy highlighter. Use short sweeping motions to apply the product as you build the coverage. Seamless coverage is extremely necessary for the initial part of this look.
