Natural Eye Makeup

That’s why so many women are looking for natural eye makeup options that look beautiful and allow them to show off their unique features, instead of covering them up with mask-like concealers and heavy eyeliners and mascara. The trick, as you might have guessed, is to make your eye makeup as natural as possible while still making it look lovely and enhancing your facial features without overpowering them. Here are some tips for you so you can easily understand how to do natural eye makeup at home so you can get the most out of your look every time you decide to apply it!

Foundation


Pick a foundation shade that’s light enough to match your neck and cheek color but still visible on your face. You don’t want it to blend into your skin—you want it to enhance your features. Pick up just a little bit with a foundation brush, dot it onto your forehead, cheeks, nose, chin and jawline, then start blending toward your hairline. Avoid pumping excess product out of its container; dipping a clean makeup brush into foundation is an easy way to control how much you use. Even though you’ll probably have some left over (it’s hard not to when using just one pump), you’re better off wasting too little than too much!

Concealer


Select a concealer that best matches your skin tone. Apply under eye area and on any areas of discoloration (like under-eye bags). Blend out well for an airbrushed look. If your skin is particularly dry, apply a small amount of moisturizer first, then conceal with a powder. If you’re using a cream or liquid formula in place of concealer, blend in enough foundation so it’s not visible – but remember that your goal is to even out skin tone without drawing too much attention…

Eye color


The first thing you need to know is what your eye color is. Even if you think you know, there’s a good chance that you actually don’t (the lighting at Sephora always makes me think I have warmer eyes than I really do), so it never hurts to get another opinion or two. With brown eyes, there are several shades of brown—ash and chocolate, for example—and with green or blue eyes, there are specific shades in those colors as well. Take a look at some charts or just ask an employee (or someone who knows) for their opinion about your shade. Most stores have full-length mirrors and lighting systems that make it easier to find your exact shade of eye shadow quickly….

Mascara


One of your first decisions will be whether or not you want to wear mascara. For a natural look, try using a lengthening mascara with no color. Black is dramatic and can make you look more pulled together if that’s what you’re going for, but it does take away from a more natural appearance. If you choose black, apply one coat at most; often times it is difficult to tell when it looks like too much and less is always more when it comes to eye makeup….

Blush


Before learning how to apply eye makeup, it’s helpful to know about color theory. Using a swipe of blush can be an effective way to determine your eye color. Apply a dot of blush on your hand and look at it under light with your eyes closed. The area around your dot should fall into one of three categories: yellow-based, blue-based or neutral. Most people are either cool- or warm-toned, which means they have more blue or yellow in their skin tones. When choosing eyeliner, eye shadow and other eye makeup products that help give depth and definition, use shades that complement your skin tone, not contrast with it….

Some Useful Tips


To bring out your eyes’ striking color, use shimmery shades on your lid and a lighter shade in your crease. If you want to try something different, give wet-look eye shadow a shot. You’ll get that just-woke-up look without even having tried. Get creative with colors – lots of fun combinations can be made by adding complementary colors. For example, blue goes well with orange, yellow or purple; green works with yellow and red; and so on….

Pacifica Beauty Eyeshadow, Pink Nudes


Pacifica Beauty makes some of my favorite eyeshadows, and they’re all 100% vegan, cruelty-free, and made in California. This natural eye makeup is probably a great option for you if you prefer high-quality but affordable products. I personally love how soft these shadows are – not too shimmery or chalky – so they apply really easily. They also feel really smooth on your eyelids (like butter!), making them easy to wear daily without creasing or smudging throughout the day. Pacificas are relatively inexpensive, clocking in at just over $9 for each shadow tube. The best part about these eyeshadows is that they come in multiple shades so you can find one that fits with your skin tone perfectly!
