In the past couple of months, this has been my go to eye makeup look. Ever since the cold weather arrived, my skin has been getting more and more pale. I don't self tan, so I had to find other creative ways to make my face look more alive. Last year I went with bold lips; this year I decided to shift the focus to the eyes.
I incorporated 3 different eyeshadow palettes in this look, and then some. I decided to share this look with you anyway because the colours that I used are so neutral that you might already have most of them in your collection. If not, maybe this look can give you an inspiration for a look you can create on your own.

*I only show you the steps to achieve the eye makeup look. I decided to not go into detail about my face makeup as everyone has their own way of doing that. However, if you want to know what products I used on my face, they are listed below.
I primed my eyes with an eyeshadow primer by Too Faced, followed Mac's paint pot in Painterly, to create a good base for the eyeshadows. I then mixed three eyeshadows by Mac (Haux, Soft Brown, and Brown Script), and applied them on my crease. I did this about three times (applying the shadows and blending them after each time). I then applied the colour Georgia from the Sweet Peach palette by Too Faced and blended it.
I mixed the eyeshadows YDK and Choppers from the Naked 2 palette and applied them all over my lid. I then used a clean fluffy brush on my crease to blend all the eyeshadows I applied so far.
I applied a Super Shock eyeshadow by Colourpop named La La in the center of my lid and blended it outward. I then highlighted my inner corner with Bootycall from the Naked 2 palette by Urban Decay, and applied 3 coats of the Voluminous Lash Paradise mascara by Loreal on my top lashes.
Lastly, I mixed the eyeshadows Luscious, Cobbler, and Bellini from the Sweet Peach palette by Too Faced, and smudged it all along my lower lashline. I then applied one coat of the same mascara used in step 3 on my lower lashes.

That's it for the look. It was important for me to share with you a look that was relatively easy for you to recreate, and that also looked natural for everyday. Here are a couple pictures of the full makeup look:
