Natural Brown Daytime Look

This look is great for everyday wear. Its neutral enough to put on during the day but the fullness of the lashes takes the glamour level up a tiny bit.

Here is the step by step tutorial:

Now the breakdown!

1. Start with a clean base and apply a medium coverage foundation. I used No 7 Stay Perfect foundation on a flat top foundation brush. It gives great coverage but still lets your skin breath, however, I do have to blot throughout the day when I wear this.

3. Using the Naked #1 palette by Urban Decay, I applied the shade Naked to my lid and Buck to my crease. Don’t worry if you don’t have the Naked palette. Just find a shade that matches your skin tone and apply it to the lid and a brown that a few shades darker than your skin to the crease. Then blend it out baby!

4. Next put the color that you applied to the crease underneath your eye, just below your waterline.

5. This step is the most complicated, applying the lashes. For this look I used trio lashes because they give a more natural look than strip lashes, but they don’t take as along as individuals. I prefer to apply them with my hands instead of tweezers but do whatever method works for you. You want to make sure that you put them as close to lash line as possible and wait for them to dry.
