Tutorial by Marilyn
Neutral eyes don’t have to be boring! This striking look is created using all neutral shades but delivers a dramatic flair that is spectacular. This remarkable look was done using all Makeup Geek eyeshadow. For my first look I decided to do something that leaned used more neutral toned shades that will look good on everyone, but with a vivid appearance. This look isn’t too hard to recreate and makes your eyes look bigger and sexier.

GET THE LOOK
Begin as always by priming your eyes with a good eye primer from lash-line to brow. I am using the Art Deco Eyeshadow Base here but you can use any primer you would like. Next, use an angled eyeshadow brush to line your crease using the color Mocha.
Next, with a fluffy dome brush, blend out that line by using the color Brown Sugar.
With a flat, stiff brush used for helping to pack on color, apply the color Ice Queen to the inner corner of the eye sweeping the shade in about 1/3 of the way.
Wipe off that same brush really well and place the color Bleached Blonde to the rest of the lower lid area.
Again, wipe off that same brush and use Makeup Geek’s Homecoming to the outer 1/3 of the lower eyelid making sure to keep the color under the crease.
With the same brush, or a small, fluffy dome brush, use the color Bling as a highlight under your brow bone.
Now, using a gel eyeliner line your eyes on the top of your eyes and extend that line to create a cat eye effect. Then blend the color Homecoming on your lower lash-line.
Curl you lashes and apply a couple of coats of your favorite mascara.
For the cheeks, use a bronzer to define your cheekbones and add a good highlight to the top of your cheeks. Add your favorite matte red lipstick to finish the look like Makeup Geek’s Ravishing or Elegant.
And there it is, an extraordinary stunning eye using all neutral shades that will compliment any eye color and skin tone. This eye is perfect for a dramatic daytime look or a night time look.
