Neutral Everyday Make Up Tutorial

These pics have been lying around in my make up folder literally for ages and I never had time to post them, but now they will be.

Paulina asked me to do a neutral make up look using MAC products she got: Tete-a-Tint eyeshadow and Soft Ochre Paint Pot - believe it or not - I didn't have either of them.. And even more surprisingly it wasn't easy to get them.

Tete-a-Tint is an eyeshadow that is discontinued in Austria, so I bought it when I was in NY, I also wanted to buy Soft Ochre, but it has such a yellow undertone, that I bought Painterly instead.

But don't worry, you can use Soft Brown eyeshadow from Mac as a dupe for Tete-a-Tint, it's almost the same and Soft Ochre/Painterly are that neutral, that they function as nothing more than an eyeshadow base. So you just get what suits you more.

But let's start:

The finished look:

I usually start with the eyes, it's just simpler – when you have fall-out you just wipe it away without loosing foundation.

I applied my UD Primer Potion as my eyeshadow base and after that Groundwork Paint Pot to give the colours more depth.
Instead of the Primer Potion you can use Painterly Paint Pot. It will be a great base.

After that I put Tete-a-Tint all over my lid and in the crease Ground Brown. Any dark brown will do.

Since we’re creating a soft look I used a brown gel liner from Coastal Scents to line my upper lash line.

I used the Tete-a-Tint and Ground Brown Combo underneath the eyes as well as you can see. The lighter colour on two thirds of the under eye area and the dark shadow to connect the ends.
After that I curled my lashes and used my Givenchy mascara.

For my face I used Illamasqua’s Satin primer and over that the unbelievably gorgeous NARS Sheer Glow foundation in Siberia.

I set it with Kryolan powder and applied NYX 01 Bronzer as my contour and NYX Pinky blush as my blush colour.

And that's it. Very simple and wearable.
I hope you enjoyed it and I will put up another youtube video today -> Products I love. :-)
