NATURAL EYESHADOW LOOK TUTORIAL

When you hear the phrase "natural eyeshadow" what first jumps to mind is probably the typical beige/brown combo. Now, that color combo is a classic, it always works, but it's not the only natural eyeshadow option out there.

Since we're wearing masks, eyes are front and center, so let's add heat to the concept of a natural eye makeup look with a hit of dusky, smoky mauve. It's subtle, it's sexy—and it stands out from the crowd. Here's how to get the look.

WHAT YOU'LL NEED

Star product: The City Mini Eyeshadow Palette in Chill Brunch Neutrals — a balanced mix of dusty roses, quartz shimmers and neutrals.

  1. NATURAL EYESHADOW LOOK TUTORIAL STEP #1: CREATE A BASE

    Load up your eyeshadow brush with the lightest shade in the palette, a warm cream, and dust all over lids and crease. Brush it upwards towards brows, so you’ve got a uniform, clean-looking base to work your mauve magic on.

  2. NATURAL EYESHADOW LOOK TUTORIAL STEP #2: DUST ON DARKER SHADES

    There are two mauve shades in this palette, a medium toned one, and a darker one. For day, we suggest the medium one. For night, go for the darker one. Start with a small amount of mauve shadow and dust it on the outer third of upper eyelids, and just at the corners of the lower lash line, for balance. Blend it out past the corners of eyes for a smoldering effect. Start small at-first—you can always add more!

  3. NATURAL EYESHADOW LOOK TUTORIAL STEP #3: ADD SHIMMER OVER TOP

    Now, brush on the second-lightest shade in the palette, a sheer taupe shimmer, and dust lightly over lids for a glazed, luminous finish. Don’t be afraid to add shimmer even though it’s a natural look. This touch really pulls the look together.
