Simple Eyeshadow Tutorial: My Lazy-Day Makeup

If you prefer video tutorials, I have one up for this look on my YouTube Channel

Prime your lids. I am using Urban Decay Primer Potion.

Apply a cream shadow; it'll help hold the shadow. I am using NARS Soft Touch shadow pencil in Goddess. It's a pink-champagne color. Blend with your finger.

Apply a champagne colored shadow. I am using a Mary-Lou Manizer by The Balm shadow (I have yet to use this as a highlighter...) and applying with a MAC 242.

Sweep a shadow that is close to your skin tone from the crease to your brow. I am using Mac Blanc Type with a Sigma E60.

Using a tapered blending brush (Sigma E45) I am putting Mac copperplate (satin medium gray) in the crease a little above.

With the tapered blending brush (Sigma E45), I am applying Urban Decay Naked (matte light brown).

Blend (Sigma E25)

Using a pencil brush (Sigma E30), I am applying Urban Decay Naked under the lash line.

Then add Mac Copperplate under the lash line.


Tightline with black (I am using Urban Decay Perversion) and line the waterline with a nude liner (Mac NC14, NW20). Curl lashes and apply black mascara.

Also, pink hair!

Here's the same shadow with NARS Train Blue. This eyeshadow look can really be changed up depending on the lip color and it transitions from summer to fall quite well.
