Everyday Eye {Step by Step Tutorial}

i just received the products shown above and i may have done a fist pump (or two) to add some awesome new Urban Decay shadows to my collection, as well as the Urban Decay Super-Saturated Lip Pencil in Big Bang. having previously tried the Big Fatty mascara and the 24/7 eye pencil (both of which were winners) i was in makeup heaven. the Big Bang lip color has already been a makeup staple the last few days and with the eyeshadows i may have created my favorite 'Everyday Makeup' look.

the pictures below don't do this look justice due to the foiling effect of the shadow. i can't capture the shine and shimmer highlight that make this look the ultimate easy eye makeup:
plus, for those of you advancing in years and are worried about using shimmery colors (they tend to accentuate wrinkles) this look actually works since you are only adding shimmer to the very center of your lid, rather than all over.

on to the tutorial!

  1. apply nude brown shadow from lashline to crease. in this instance, i am using Urban Decay's YDK shadow.
  2. using the foiling technique (for further instruction click here), i foiled my Queen Phyllis to the center of my eyelid only
  3. using the same brush used for foiling, gently sweep back and forth just above the lash line.
  4. enjoy!
