How to Get a Neutral Makeup Look That Works for Any Occasion How to Get a Neutral Makeup Look That Works for Any Occasion How to Get a Neutral Makeup Look That Works for Any Occasion

When it comes to makeup looks, neutral makeup reigns supreme. Take a look at all of the nude makeup palettes and “my lips but better” lip colors that are out there, and you’ll see exactly what we mean. Understanding why isn’t difficult either, neutral makeup is suitable for any activity you’ve penciled into your agenda, from date night to heading into the office to attending a wedding. A neutral makeup look can just as easily serve as a special occasion look as it can an everyday makeup look. So, without further ado, are you ready to find your new favorite look? Keep reading for a step-by-step neutral makeup tutorial that you can wear anywhere, anytime.

STEP #1: PRIME YOUR FACE

When it comes to creating the perfect makeup look, makeup primer should always be your first step. Primer preps your skin for your makeup and ensures that your makeup stays in place all day long. Kick things off with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Glow Lock Makeup Primer, and apply it all over your face for a glowing base.

STEP #2: CREATE A FLAWLESS COMPLEXION

Now, it’s time to perfect your skin. To really achieve a neutral look, you’ll want to reach for a foundation that provides amazing coverage without a cakey look or feel, something the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 Hour Fresh Wear Foundation, Lightweight can certainly do. Pick up the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender and apply the foundation on your face using dabbing and rolling motions to get a seamless finish.

STEP #3: GRAB YOUR CONCEALER

If you’re battling under-eye bags, dark circles, or any other imperfections you’d like to disguise, concealer will save the day. Try the L’Oréal Paris True Match Super-Blendable Multi-Use Concealer, and apply it under your eyes and over any spots you want to hide. Be sure to blend until even.

STEP #4: FILL YOUR BROWS

A well-sculpted brow can go a long way in taking your makeup look up a few notches! Set the stage with the L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Definer Waterproof Eyebrow Mechanical Pencil and outline your brow shape. Using light strokes, gently fill in your brows, then use the spoolie to brush your eyebrow hairs into place. Once your arches are looking great, apply the L’Oréal Paris Unbelievabrow Longwear Waterproof Brow Gel to lock your brows in place.

STEP #5: CRAFT A NEUTRAL EYE

Versatile and undeniably stunning, neutral eyeshadow can pull any makeup look together. To get a neutral eye look, you’ll want to create a seamless gradient featuring light and dark nude shades. Pop open the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eyeshadow in Mix And Matte and apply it on your lid and in your crease. Next, place the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eyeshadow in Matte It Up on the middle of your lid.

Blend the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eyeshadow in Café Au Lait onto the outer half of your lid and blend until even, so you have a gorgeous ombré of three neutral shadows. For a sparkly touch, pick up the L’Oréal Paris Brilliant Eyes Shimmer Liquid Eye Shadow Makeup in Amber Sparkle and dab a bit in the center for a subtle pop.

STEP #6: LINE YOUR LIDS

You can skip eyeliner altogether if you prefer to keep your look on the simple side, but it never hurts to level up your look with winged eyeliner. Take the L’Oréal Paris Matte Signature Liquid Dip Eyeliner, Waterproof in Black, and carefully line along your upper lash line before extending the liner out into a flick. Just remember to keep the wing small, as no one aspect of your neutral makeup look should overpower the rest.

STEP #7: COAT YOUR LASHES

Pump up your peepers with a volumizing mascara. The L’Oréal Paris Bambi Eye Waterproof Mascara, Lasting Volume, works to lengthen, lift, and curl lashes. Apply a few coats for a flirty finish.

STEP #8: BRONZE IT UP

The last thing you want is for your neutral makeup look to fall flat. Stay ahead of the game by adding a bronzer into the mix to achieve a natural-looking, luminous glow. Reach for the L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Bronze It Bronzer and apply it onto the hollows of your cheeks. Now, that’s how you get a sun-kissed glow without stepping on a beach!

STEP #9: BLUSH

If you ask us, a pretty flush of color is always a great idea. Sweep the L’Oréal Paris True Match Blush onto your cheeks to define your face.

STEP #9: COLOR YOUR POUT

Bear with us; we’re almost at the finish line. Now that your face is pretty much complete, you’ll want to show your pout some attention, too. Swipe the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Matte Lip Crayon, Lasting Wear, Smudge Resistant in Tres Sweet onto your lips for a nice hint of color.

STEP #10: LOCK IT ALL IN

After all of your hard work, you want to make sure that your makeup look goes the distance. Mist the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Spray and Set Make-Up Oil-Free Setting Spray over your face in an ‘X’ and ‘T’ motion for a just-applied makeup look that lasts.

And that’s how you create a neutral makeup look that can span your schedule. If you could stand to brush up on some of the basics we’ve covered here, check out our article, How to Apply Makeup: The Complete Step-by-Step Guide.
