Eyeshadow can really make your eyes pop and add that extra ‘wow’ factor to your makeup look. However, it doesn’t always have to be ‘in-your-face’. Sometimes less is indeed more. Here’s a simple, step-by-step tutorial on achieving a subtle, nude eyeshadow aesthetic that looks great on everyone and for any occasion.
You’ll want to use a primer to ensure that the eyeshadow adheres properly to the eye and stays put all day (or night) long. We recommend the 24-hour Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion for guaranteed crease-free application.
David White, Retail Operations Manager for Urban Decay, agrees. According to him, “Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion smooths the eyelids and helps you to create an easily blendable application of eyeshadow. Plus, the active ingredients create a mesh network of particles for a super long-wear makeup that doesn’t crease.”
Next, you’ll want to reach for your favourite nude eyeshadow palette and use a tapered brush to apply a generous amount onto your eyelids. You can’t go wrong with the 12-option Maybelline The Nudes or the 16-option NYX Professional Makeup Warm Neutrals.
Now it’s time for the eyeliner. Instead of a harsh black, we suggest experimenting with a chocolate brown for a slightly more understated, yet powerful vibe. The creamy, smudge-resistant L’Oréal Paris Infallible Eyeliner in Chocolate Addict is a top choice.
Finish off with a generous flick of mascara. The all-new, volumising Maybelline Snapscara does the trick and promises zero clumps.
Wear this classic everyday nude eyeshadow look with perfectly plucked eyebrows, a dusting of blush and a lick of pastel lippie for your pout, and you’ll be good to go. Nothing neutral about you girl. Simply gorgeous!
