Below is a super simple make-up tutorial. I worked on making the most neutral yet gal style eye and fewest products. It’s the foundation of my basic easiest gal eye make-up. I’m putting this as my base eye make-up style and then will possibly have more how-tos for stronger looks.
A little disclaimer before I go onto doing this:
1. I am not an expert in make-up. This is just what I’ve learned that works as a nice style for eye make-up for any occasion.
2. No photoshop/cameraapp etc… was used, not even leveling. I just wanted to show how my eye looks as the camera sees it.
3. Feel free to substitute any of the products. I just stick with what works best for me, is cheap, and suits my skin-tone.
Doesn’t my eye look so much larger and more open with make-up? Genetics, fyl.
Since I’m so pale I prefer to let eye shadows do the work that eyeliner would do on the bottom. I think it looks a bit too harsh on my pale skin especially on a day-time simple look.
Where to buy:
I am wearing Princess Mimi Apple Green circle lens kindly sponsored by PinkyParadise. I absolutely love and trust PinkyParadise and have bought from them several times before. Use the code “universaldoll” to receive a free gift with order.
– For those who suffer from dark circles or genetically more sunken eyes, darken your lower shadow even more. This actually hides your dark circles. Overuse of concealer only highlights them.
– For those with not as smooth under eye skin use of a matte shadow is better than a shimmer. Save the shimmer for the eyelid.
For those new to Eyelashes:
– Buy the cheapest drugstore eyelashes you can find and keep trying them. Don’t spend money and coat nice pairs with glue before you’re confident. Find ones with thin lash bands (like these from Ardell). If you’re still having trouble, cut them in half. When you feel confident then move to the pricier pairs (still with thinner lash bands).
– Do spend money on a glue you can paint on like the Eyelash Fixer FX or get a small brush. Do not squirt from the tube! You’ll ruin many eyelashes that way when starting out. 50% of lashes is having a good glue and the proper application tools.
– If your current have ones with a thicker lash band, bend the F*$% out of them before you start using them. Just keep bending and slowly they’ll be more malleable to put on your eyes.
