EOTD - Neutral Work Look
My first Eye of the Day post! This was a super neutral look, brought to you by the Yaby Neutrals palette. This is the first palette I break out on ANY job, and it always serves me well. It's much more than neutrals - the blues are amazing as well. My only complaint is the small number of truly matte shades, which I need to use a lot for mature clients and bridal.
So this is how I looked today!
Now I count rows (R) top to bottom, and columns (C) left to right. Try to keep up!
Base: didn't use one. I usually don't if it's a pretty natural look.
Colour wash: R2C5 to just above crease
Brow highlight: R1C5
Crease contour: R4C7
Top Liner: R5C1
Bottom Liner: R4C7
Mascara: Gorgeous Cosmetics Formula Five in Onyx Black
This is my 'fallback' look when I don't have time to experiment and need to look polished in a hurry. I'm usually running late so I like something that is quick and pretty foolproof. Since I've already got my base on I just add blush and lip balm and I'm out the door. Complicated looks are for weekends when I have more time!
I'll try to be more adventurous next time :)
What's your 'fallback' look?
