Neutral Brown Eyes


The following pictures shows how different shades of lipcolour can easily change up an existing look.  Wearing neutral browns on the eye allows you to use different shades of lip colour, whether they are light, medium or dark.

I paired up the eyes with a bright red matte lipstick (Look 1: Loreal Julianne’s Red), a natural peachy-pink lipstick (Look 2: MAC Fanfare) and a rosey-pink lipstick (Look 3: MAC Speak Louder).

Here’s how to create the neutral brown eyeshadow look:

Products Used
Base: MAC Painterly Paint Pot (neutral light beige)
Crease: MAC Texture eyeshadow (matte medium orange-brown)
Deepen Crease: MAC Folie eyeshadow (matte medium reddish brown)
Lid: MAC All that Glitters eyeshadow (shimmery light peachy-brown)
Highlight: MAC Shroom eyeshadow (light shimmery beige)
Black mascara (upper and lower lashes)

1. Apply Painterly Paint Pot all over the lid as a base. You can either use your fingers or a flat synthetic brush (e.g. MAC 242).
4. Sweep Texture into the crease using a windshield wiper motion (e.g. MAC 217).
5. Deepen the crease using Folie (e.g. MAC 217).
3. Apply All that Glitters on to the eyelid using a gentle patting motion (e.g. Real Techniques Base Shadow Brush).
4. Using a crease/blender brush (e.g. MAC 217) or a pointed crease brush (e.g. MAC 226), sweep Shroom on to the browbone to highlight and blend out the edges of the crease colour.
5. Apply mascara to the top and bottom lashes.
