Neutral Series: Naked Palette Neutral Pink Tutorial

As you all know, I’m a big fan of neutral makeup. With my clients (mainly the models doing fashion shoots) I’m a lot more willing to experiment with brighter/edgier looks, but on myself, I always lean toward the neutral looks.

This look is soft, and great to wear for any occasion. You can keep it simple with only 1 or 2 colors, or you can darken it up with a little bit of black, gray, or dark brown shadows. No pictures this time since I was in a rush to get out the door, but the products I used are listed below.

Brushes:
MAC 227 – Large Shader Brush (All over/brow bone highlight)
MAC 239 – Shader Brush (Lid)
MAC 217 – Tapered Blending Brush (Crease)
MAC 219 – Pencil Brush (Outer V)
MAC 224 – Blending Brush (Blending & Transition)
Japonesque – Medium Detailer (lower lashline/liner brush)
EcoTools – Blush Brush (blush)

Face:
MAC Pro Longwear foundation in NW20 mixed with The Body Shop Seaweed Mattifying Moisturizer
Garnier Nutritioniste Anti-Dark Circle Eye Roller
MAC Peaches Blush
Benefit HighBeam

Eyes:
All over: MAC Eye Shadow – Brule
Lid/Inner Corner: Urban Decay Naked Palette – Sin
Crease/Lower Lashline: Urban Decay Naked Palette – Toasted
Outer V: Urban Decay Naked Palette – Hustle
Transition: Urban Decay Naked Palette – Naked
Highlight: Urban Decay Naked Palette – Virgin
Eye Liner: Urban Decay 24/7 Liner – Whiskey

TAG: Five Minute Makeup Challenge!

So there’s this challenge going around on YouTube, and I thought it looked like fun! So I went ahead and did it and hope that other people can get around to doing it as well. 🙂 The look I used is a typical look I do for work – if I get around to putting any makeup on. Yes, I go to work without makeup on more often than I do WITH makeup on (What can I say? I’m a girl that values her sleep! The extra 10-15 minutes is more than worth it to me! lol). It’s a neutral look that is an almost barely there sort of neutral. I work for a very conservative company, so I tend to stray away from the bright makeup look. So for those that HAVE seen the video, here’s a list of what I used for this video:

Makeup used for this TAG:
* MAC Select Cover-Up in NW25
* MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Medium Plus
* MAC Bare Study Paint Pot
* MAC Eyeshadow in All That Glitters
* MAC Eyeshadow in Era
* NYX Chocolate Brown from Smokey Eye Palette
* Covergirl LashBlast Fusion mascara
* Rimmel Moisture Renew lipstick in Latino

Tools used for this TAG:
* Japonesque Kabuki brush
* MAC 239 brush
* MAC 217 brush
* Sonia Kashuk Crease brush
* MAC 224 brush

Check out the video and see how quick I put the look together!

I’ve got lots to put up yet! I have a day-night tutorial coming, a collective haul from things I’ve picked up over the last couple of months (since my trip to AZ), and my May favorites! (It’s June already?!) So stay tuned!!

Neutral with a Pop of Turquoise

Another look using a NYX Palette! I seriously LOVE these things! The two main products I used for this look is the NYX Runway Collection Palette in Champagne & Caviar and the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Pencil in Flipside.

So this tutorial is a GREAT way to add a bright pop of color to your look without looking absolutely crazy! If you’re like me and prefer neutral looks, this is a way to incorporate some color into your makeup. I typically don’t stray too far from neutrals, and when I do, I aim for purples or greens. Never blues. So this was a FUN way to get some color to my look!

Sorry this post is so quick. Late night and I need to work in the AM. Goodnight beauties! 🙂

Neutral Eye using NYX Runway Collection Palette

Another look using the NYX Runway Collection Palette in Jazz Night!! Have I mentioned how much I LOVE LOVE LOVE this palette? Inexpensive, yet GREAT quality makeup! ULTA currently has NYX on sale (these palettes are $7.50 each!) through April 30th, 2010! And most, if not all of the rest of the NYX products they sell are Buy Two Get One Free!

Typically when I do a neutral look, I don’t usually use this much eyeliner. So, to me the look is “dramatic.” However, if it’s not dramatic enough for you, feel free to darken up the outer V with a touch of black shadow (there is a matte black in this palette) and use a slightly heavier hand with the liner for a thicker line and you will have a much more dramatic look!

Products used for this look:

Face:
~ MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NW20 (MAC 194 brush)

~ Maybelline Great Lash Mascara in clear

Eyes:
~ Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion
~ MAC Paint Pot in Bare Study
~ NYX Jazz Night Palette in yellow (MAC 239 brush)

Purple Smokey Eye using NYX Runway Collection Palette

Hi everyone!!

So this is my first EVER tutorial! So be gentle! 🙂 Unfortunately, not being a YouTube partner, I had to cut a lot out due to the 10 minute time limit, but I will get better at this and get it into the limited time frame soon enough! This look can be used for almost anything – toned down you could wear it everyday to work or school. If you darken up the corner then it can be used for going out, going to formal parties or dances (homecoming, prom, etc). Have fun with it!
