Play Up Your Eyes With Neutral Shades
From now until Labor Day, it’s all about having fun in the sun. Summer is the season to play up your natural features with sunkissed skin and subtle lids. Try cutting back on the heavy eyeshadow and play up your lashes and brows for a more beachy vibe.
Do you tend to gravitate toward darker shades or liners to play up your eyes? We’re sharing how to get a soft, beautiful summer-y look with neutral shades. The best part? You can totally wear these looks year-round.
Neutral Eyeshadow Look #1: Peachy Shadows
Swipe a soft peach eyeshadow on your lids for a beautiful and understated everyday makeup routine. We love the Peaches ‘n Cream shade from the Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Palette by Too Faced.
Finish off with a light coat of your favorite black or brown mascara to achieve this sunny eye look.
Neutral Eyeshadow Look #2: Bronze Shadow
Embrace the warmer weather with a subtle, one-shade smokey eye. Bronze is a universally flattering shadow that works well with all skin tones and eye colors. Create a neutral summer look by applying a shimmery bronze shade around the eye. Then, use a fluffy brush to blend the pigment into the crease. Finish off by fading out the shadow as you get closer to the brow bone.
You can create this look and plenty of others with the Allure Best of Beauty Winning Nudes Of New York 16-pan palette by Maybelline.
Neutral Eyeshadow Look #3: Muted Lavender
You can still have fun with color when you’re going for a neutral eyeshadow look. The trick is to keep the colors softer. Believe it or not, muted purple shades are super wearable. Create an unexpected summer eye look by using a darker lavender shadow in your crease and swiping a lighter color on the lids for a soft and natural look.
The Eye Enhancers 3 Kit Shadow by Covergirl is budget-friendly and blends effortlessly to bring out your eyes without overshadowing.
Don’t Forget Lashes & Brows
Your eyelashes and eyebrows are equally as important. Natural makeup flatters your features - so your lashes and brows should shine. Full, defined brows are one of the easiest ways to frame your face, while longer lashes help make your peepers pop.
