LOOK: Defined Neutral Eyes using ELF Beauty Encyclopedia

Hey everyone, life got in the way and it feels like its been forever since I've updated my blog. But I'm back with another makeup look using my ELF Beauty Encyclopedia Eye Sparkle edition. I did a defined neutral eyes with some coral peach lips great for work, school or any occasion during the day. It was requested a lot for a neutral eye makeup suing this palette so here it is.

I have to mention that most of the shadows in this palette are very shimmer and glittery so just keep that in mind if you're going to use it for a daytime look. To much shimmers on the eyes will give it a washed out look and will be too much for daytime. You want a balance of texture on the eye makeup by using shimmers with some matte for a flawless look ^_^














Milani Minerals blush in MaiTai. It's a pretty coral pink blush.


face:
-The Body Shop Vitamin E Moisture Intense
-Alba Green Tea eyegel
-Revlon Color Stay foundation
-Almay Line Smoothing concealer in medium
-Mac Mineralized Skin Finish in Medium Deep

eyes:
-Almay Line Smoothing concealer
-Mac Mineralized Skin Finish in Medium Deep
-ELF Beauty Encyclopedia Eye Sparkle edition
-Mark's Keep it Going Long Wear liner in Entourage
-Miss Adoro lashes

cheeks:
-Milani blush in MaiTai

lips:
-Carmex lip balm
-NYX Round lipgloss in Peach

Here is a video tutorial I did on how to do this look.

Cool Tips mentioned in the video:
  • Use any base that works for you to even out the skin tone on the eye lid
  • Use a lip balm prior to makeup application to prep the lips for the lip color application. Let it sit on your lips while you do your makeup.
  • False lashes are always optional but I like to use them to add drama to the eye makeup.
  • Be careful when using shimmery eye shadows for daytime. Too much shimmers will make your eye makeup look washed out.
 Thank you so much for stopping by!

  16. How do you like the Milani blush? I've been so tempted by them! Not sure which I would get: mai tai or luminous.
