Graphic eyeliner is a classic staple look that will never go out of style!
Trends regarding the style and shape change seasonally, but the basic principle
will always be around. All you need is a liquid or gel liner and a steady hand!
Dont be afraid to put your own spin on it! Add a different color, texture, or shape in to the mix and you may be impressed with what you come up with!
I stumbled across this liquid liner tutorial online. Simple and to the point!
When it comes to makeup "natural" and "neutral" are two classifications that I hear frequently. Although the terms can tie in together and describe a similar look, that is not always the case. Natural makeup defines a look that is essentially nude. Think "no makeup makeup," or "second skin makeup." The color palette includes flesh tones, or colors you would naturally find in the skin without any makeup applied. Focus on highlighting and perfecting the skin to give it a "fresh faced" look.
By definition neutral means "no color." A neutral makeup look could include muted shades of grey, earth tones, flesh tones, and shades from light to dark. Textures can be anything from matte to metallic. Neutral makeup doesn't necessarily need to be soft or light.
Here's miss Sunny! She stopped in yesterday for her 21st birthday makeup! We went with a smokey eye, lashes, and coral lip. Her dress was teal, so Blue Brown Pigment made a perfect color for her eyeshadow!
Here's a recap of a few looks I did over the past few days:
This was a pretty natural look, for myself at least. I kept the colors neutral and warm, skipped eyeliner, and added some false lashes.
