a neautral eye

Almost every day I use basic, neutral makeup on my eyes.  I don’t have the time {or interest} in doing more than just the basics:  shadow, liner, mascara.  Today I am sharing the products I have used for years and one new addition!

Step 1:  Brows

Don’t underestimate giving your brows attention!  I love {LOVE} the Anastasia Brow Kit.  This handy kit comes with stencils, tweezers, brow powder, a brush, and brow gel.  It sounds a bit high maintenance- but I got the hang of using the tools and now it takes less than 30 seconds.  Really.   I use Brunette/Dark Brown Brow Powder Duo.

Step 2: Shadow

My lids are very dark, so I use MAC Paint Pot in Rubenesque  to even out the color.  Some days that is all I wear.  Other days, I either use Stila eye shadow in Kitten{a shimmery nude pink} or shadow from my Too Faced Natural Eye Neutral Eye Shadow Collection.  I adore this little palette. It comes with 9 shadows and three instruction cards with step-by-step application instructions.  I call that “Eye Shadow for Dummies” and it is awesome.

Step 3: Liner

For years I have used shadow as my liner.  Using an angled brush, it is easy to get a thin or thick line-whatever your mood.  Most days I use the shadow Sexpresso in my Too Faced palette.  For Christmas, Santa brought me Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Black.  I really like how easy it is to apply and it doesn’t smudge at all.  Super excited about this addition to my basics.

Step 4: Mascara

A quick curl of the lashes and a swipe of mascara and I am done.  My favorite is they’re real! mascara by Benefit.  It is truly amazing what it does for your lashes!  The dark, dark black color really makes your eyes pop.  Be warned: you will need makeup remover to get it off at night.

All told, it takes about 2 minutes to do my eye makeup.  Quick, easy, and somewhat presentable.
