Makeup Monday Necessary Neutrals: Warm Mattes
Most of us reach for neutral eye makeup more often than not, so a series on simple, neutral eye looks can be useful and fun for nearly everyone. After all, neutrals go with everything, are easy to apply, and can be mixed and matched. I’m also going to pair the three eye colors with a coordinating neutral blush so you can complete your full face look!
This matte look is warm, soft, and creamy, reminding me of coffee! Matte colors are sophisticated, smooth, and can either look very casual or very dressy, depending on the application and what you pair them with.
This look also makes an easy day-to-night transition: do a soft, smoky, dry eyeliner and you have a versatile everyday look; or pair it with a dramatic winged liquid eyeliner and you’re date-night ready!
You will need:
- Matte Cream Base
- Cinnamon Rose
- Rich Earth
- Kiss of Love Blush
- Small All-Over Brush
- Pointed Sculptor Brush
- Eyeliner Brush
- Chubby Blender (coming soon!)
Start with your foundation, applied to freshly cleansed and moisturized skin. Then, using the Small All-Over Brush, stamp Matte Cream Base all over your lid, from brow to lash line, paying special attention to your inner corners.
Now apply Cinnamon Rose in your crease with the Pointed Sculptor Brush to define and add shape to your eyes. I like to apply the color darkest to the outer corners, getting lighter as I work my way inward. Our colors build really well, so start with a light touch and apply more in a circular motion where you want deeper color.
Lastly, line your eyes with Rich Earth applied with our Eyeliner Brush. Apply it dry for a soft, smoky look, or wet for a dramatic, defined look… your choice!
Swirl a bit of Kiss of Love blush to the apples of your cheeks for a natural, radiant flush and you’re set!
