Makeup Tutorial | Pretty Simple

Now that the essentials are covered, here's a little tutorial fun.  I was going to go into makeup brushes & some fundamentals (the building blocks of fun), but I didn't want to bore you. I call this look Pretty Simple, because that's exactly what it is-- pretty.. and well.. simple. It is literally SO easy & takes zero effort & talent. It's so easy a caveman could do it.. plus it will give you a little feel for using brushes. This is one of my favorite on the run looks, it takes like 30 seconds, literally... not to mention it is versatile and looks good on ANYBODY! 

Using Lorac Pro Palette:

Apply "Cream"over the entire eye-- lid to brow bone with a shader brush (Mac 242). With that same brush, add " Lt Pink" to the lid. Take any small brush (I used Real Technique's Accent Brush) & apply "White" in the tear duct & blend into brow bone. Apply "Mauve" in the crease using a blending brush (Sedona Lace EB09) stroking back & forth and then in small circular motions as if you are painting loops. Blend out any harsh lines with a Tapered Blending brush, such as Sigma E40. On the bottom, using a smudge brush, apply a thin line of "Sable" as close to the lash line as possible & blend out to your desired smokey-ness. Add a winged eyeliner & voila! (I used MAC Eye Kohl in Smolder + e.l.f. Cream Eyeliner + Sedona Lace EB 19)
