Taupe Eyes and Purple Lips | Makeup Tutorial

Hello beauties,

I've been posting a lot of eye close-ups on my Instagram page (@BlendNSmack) lately with a simple product listing in the caption but I think its time I have tutorials up on my blog for each eye-look I do. Let me know in the comment section below if you guys would like to see any of the previous eye makeup looks that I have done!

Anyway, onto this tutorial...

Step 1:
Start of with a clean and primed eye. I used Urban Decay's Primer Potion.
Step 2: 
Apply an eyeshadow close to your skin color all over your lid. This will help all your shadows blend easier. I used 'White Chocolate' from the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette.

Then taking 'Milk Chocolate' , a light taupe-brown shadow, and a blending brush, apply 'Milk Chocolate' in and above the crease.
Step 3:
SauceBox Cosmetics - Creme De La Creme palette
Bottom row eyeshadows
Using the shadow 'Secrecy' from the SauceBox Cosmetics Creme De La Creme palette, apply it all over the lid.

I used a concealer brush because its stiff bristles allows you pack on eyeshadow easier and get a more intense color without using something like Mac Fix Plus to enhance the shadow.

Step 4:
Using the blending brush and 'Mauve' from the Lorac Pro palette, apply it in the crease and blend so no harsh lines are visible.
Step 5:
Draw a winged liner.
Step 6:
For the bottom lashline, lightly apply Mauve and blend it.

Rimmel Scandalous Rockin' Curves mascara on the top lashes.
Clinique Bottom Lashes Mascara on the bottom lashes.
HudaBeauty lashes in Giselle.

Since the eyes were very neutral and soft, I paired them with vibrant, bold, purple lips. I used MAC's lipstick in Heroine.

...And thats it!

I hope you enjoyed this look and learned something!
