If you’re not already a makeup master, applying eyeshadow can pose a challenge. Where do all those shades go? And how do you choose colors that coordinate? That’s where step-by-step eyeshadow looks come in handy. They breakdown exactly what to use and where to put it, taking away all the guesswork. Sound right up your alley? Below, we’re sharing an easy step-by-step eyeshadow tutorial you’ll be able to do without any expert skills.
If there’s one eyeshadow look everyone should know how to do, it would have to be a neutral, everyday look. So, that’s what we’ll focus on today. Once you’ve mastered this look, you can always play with different colors and finishes to switch things up!
Before applying any eye makeup, it’s always important to apply a makeup primer on your lids. An eyeshadow primer creates an even base for your makeup application so it can stay put all day long. It can also make shadows appear more vivid! If you’re all out of primer, feel free to use a dab of foundation or concealer to kick things off.
Now it’s time to get started on your gorgeous eyeshadow look! Using the L’Oréal Paris Paradise Enchanted Eyeshadow Palette, apply the gold eyeshadow all over your lid. Be sure to blend until even.
Once your base is applied, you want to add some definition to your makeup look. Use one of the palette’s medium brown shades in your crease, making sure to blend well for a seamless finish.
This step is totally optional, but you can amp up the drama of this eye makeup look by deepening your crease. Take the darkest brown shade from the palette and apply it to the outer “V” of your eye for added dimension.
To complete your eyeshadow look, use the lightest shade in the palette to highlight your eye. Apply this shade to the inner corner of your eye and below the arch of your eyebrow. If this step seems unnecessary, know this: Properly placed highlighter can help you look more awake and bright-eyed.
Now that you’ve followed this step-by-step eyeshadow tutorial to a T, it’s time to take your eye makeup look a couple of steps further. Follow these steps to round out a beautiful neutral eye look.
A little winged liner never hurts! Use the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Flash Cat Eye Waterproof Brush Tip Liquid Eyeliner in Brown to create your sharpest winged eyeliner look.
Once your upper lash line is lined, use the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof, Up to 24HR Pencil Eyeliner in Brown on your lower lash line. You may be inclined to reach for black eyeliner, but a brown shade will complement your neutral eye shadow.
To create the illusion of bigger eyes, fill in your waterline with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof, Up to 24HR Pencil Eyeliner in Nude.
No eye makeup look is complete without a few coats of mascara! If you want to stick with a neutral eye makeup look, apply the L’Oréal Paris Bambi Eye Washable Mascara, Lasting Volume in Black Brown for lift and curl delivered via a natural-looking brown shade.
If you prefer to add a little bit of drama to your neutral eye, opt for a mascara with a bolder hue, like the L’Oréal Paris Bambi Eye Washable Mascara, Lasting Volume in Blackest Black.
Of course, you don’t want all that hard work to go to waste! Make sure you use a setting spray when you’re finished with your eye makeup. Spray the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Spray & Set Makeup Extender Setting Spray in an “X” and “T” shape over your face so you can rock a “just applied” makeup look all day (and night) long!
