Today, I will be sharing my go-to eye makeup look with all of you. It is perfect for when you are in a rush, want to look put-together with minimal effort, or cannot decide which type of makeup to wear! This a look that takes less than 5 minutes, but appears as if it took much longer because of how timeless, versatile, and polished it looks! It is subtle enough for school, but also dramatic enough for a formal night out. Whenever I wear this, I always get compliments.2229939First, I apply an eyeshadow primer. For this, I used the Urban Decay Primer Potion, but any primer will work just fine.

Next, I am going to use my all-time favorite eyeshadow, which is the L’Oreal infallible 24-Hour Eyeshadow in “Amber Rush”, a stunning metallic rose gold. I simply press this shade all over my eyelid, making sure to not go above my crease. The only downside to this shadow is that it can have some fallout, so I would recommend doing this before you apply your foundation or other face makeup. Taking a fluffy eyeshadow brush, I am going to blend out the edges of that shadow so there are no harsh lines.

The other eyeshadow that will be featured in this look is MAC “Twinks”, which is a deep plum color with a veluxe pearl finish, which I also really love. With a more precise crease brush, I am going to blend this shade into my crease and the outer edge of my eye to create a more gradient effect. You can make this however subtle or dramatic you want depending on the kind of look that you’re going for.
