Soft and Neutral (Using Lorac Pro 2 Palette)















I recently featured this softly defined, neutral eye look on my Instagram page (find me at @makeupbysairalee) and thought it would be nice to accompany it with a ‘how to’ post.  

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 wore this look with one of the new MAC Liptensity shades in ‘Life’s Blood (a rich, deep blood-red) and Too Faced Sweethearts Blusher in Peach Bellini (look out for posts on both of these products in the coming weeks).

I used the Lorac Pro 2 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: Too Faced Shadow Insurance Primer
Crease: Lt. Brown eyeshadow (medium matte neutral brown)
Lid: Rose eyeshadow (shimmery light champagne)
Highlight: mix of Buff and Beige eyeshadows (pale matte cream and pale pearly-cream)


1. Apply Too Faced Shadow Insurance all over the lid as a base.

2. Apply Lt.Brown in the crease of the eye with a crease/blender brush using a windshield wiper motion (e.g. MAC 217).

3. Pat Rose onto the lid using a flat shader brush (e.g. MAC 239).

4. Using a crease/blender brush (e.g. MAC 217) or a pointed crease brush (e.g. MAC 226), sweep Buff on to the browbone to highlight.  Add a little of Beige eyeshadow over Buff to give some extra brightness to the eyes. 

5. Apply mascara to the top and bottom lashes.
