I’ve never been a fan of eye make up, and mainly kept them “nude” with some mascara and a little black line when going out.
So lately I’ve been trying a simple make-up with some beige and light brown to enhance my eyes but avoid being too chic for a day at the office and above all, I have been using some real brushes, quite helpful in the end.
Most of the time, I have 5 minutes to do my make-up and since I have dark eyes I cannot abuse of dark colors if I don’t want to look real mean or like I am going out ;) so this is the best option for dark eyes according to me and can be made quickly without any risk of ruining the rest of your foundation or base.
WITHOUT EYE MAKE UP
WHAT TO USE: A light beige close to your skin color (here Artdeco 551), a taupe/light brown ( here Artdeco 517) and a white (here Maybelline 01 Snow White) + types of brush (from the top): A small one for light colors, a larger one for dark colors, an angled cut brush for under your eyes and precise lines and a pinceau brush to speed the color corectly.
APPLY the LIGHT BEIGE OVER THE COMPLETE SURFACE OF YOUR EYES with the small brush.
APPLY the TAUPE color on your movable eyelid.
Make sure the color is NICELY SPREAD on your eyelid and the borders end SMOOTHLY. Then use the angled cut brush to add a LINE under your eye and give it a bit of a SMOKEY look.
Use a BRUSH to define the boarder of your eye and make sure the COLOR stays in.
Add some WHITE in the CORNER of your eye to brighten and open it. Then, add MASCARA.
And you’re done!
