This look is perfect for days when you want your eyes to look natural but still ‘dressed’. Neutral tones on the eyes can be combined with any lip colour that you like, be it a bright red lipstick or a nude lipgloss.
I used the Urban Decay Vice 3 palette to create this look but you can use any brand of eyeshadow you like which has similar shades.
Here’s how to re-create this look:

Base: Urban Decay Primer Potion in Original
Crease: Urban Decay Downfall eyeshadow (medium matte neutral brown)
Deepen Crease: Urban Decay Brokedown eyeshadow (deep satin brown)
Lid: Urban Decay Last Sin eyeshadow (shimmery light champagne)
Highlight: Urban Decay Truth eyeshadow (pale matte pink-nude)
1. Apply Urban Decay Primer Potion all over the lid as a base.
2. Apply Downfall in the crease of the eye with a crease/blender brush using a windshield wiper motion (e.g. MAC 217).
3. Concentrate Brokedown eyeshadow on the very tip of your crease/blender brush (e.g. 217) and concentrate this in the lower part of the crease. This helps to deepen the crease area and add extra dimension to the eye.
4. Pat Last Sin onto the lid, using a flat shader brush (e.g. MAC 239).
6. Using a crease/blender brush (e.g. MAC 217) or a pointed crease brush (e.g. MAC 226), sweep Truth on to the browbone to highlight. Take this down into the inner corner as well to brighten the eye.
7. Apply mascara to the top and bottom lashes.
