Easy 3-minute Neutral Eye Makeup Tutorial

Hello Fellow IMBB beauties,

Here’s the Neutral colours eye makeup for Neha, Sush and Radhika!!!

This eye makeup is super-easy and CAN be done in 3 minutes.

All you need is-

  • A fluffy eye shadow brush: I am using FACES eye shadow brush.

Faces Eyeshadow brush

  • A pink/dull rose/mauve/cream or any damn pastel eye shadow
  • A dark brown/copper shadow
  • So basically one dark and one light shadow. Light pink and dark brown make the perfect natural eye makeup.
  • I am using the Chambor Eye shadow trio in ROSE. All three shades in this trio are high pearl finish.

Chambor Eyeshadow Trio- Rose

Let’s start:

  • Cleanse, tone and moisturize.
  • Get your base makeup ready.
  • Apply an eye shadow primer. If you don’t have one, a thin layer of concealer or liquid foundation will do.
  • Take the pink eye shadow and with the fluffy brush, cover your entire lid with it.

  • Now with the same colour, colour the entire eye area.

  • Draw a thick line on the upper lash line with a brown eye pencil. I am using Colorbar’s Cocobar.

  • Smudge the line lightly and blend well with the shadows.

  • Apply black liner to give definition to the eyes. And apply mascara. Fill in your eyebrows.

  • Finish the look with a little blush on the cheeks and a nude pink lipstick.
  • I am wearing the Inglot bronzer on my cheeks and Colorbar’s Brown Shimmer lipstick on my lips. (The name is very misleading- neither the colour is brown nor there is any shimmer.)

Hope y’all like it….

This is a very wearable and “perfect for Workplace” look.

Also I’d like to add that these shadows are pretty long wearing and this look would stay for at least 3-4 hours.

  1. I like it! This is such a great look for everyday… I’m not that big on pink eyeshadows, but I’ll definitely try this look out this weekend.
    Btw that’s a really pretty lip color…it’s weird with the name though!

    1. Thanks Devika…. I wear this looks and some similar ones when I teach… :nerd: :nerd: Don’t like to wear bold colours everyday too….

      The lip colour IS really pretty… :-* :-* One I reach out the most for… :inlove: :inlove: And it is a weird name…

  2. I am a huge fan of bold eye makeup and it’s very rare that I do neutrals. I loved you did this look, and now I am kind of getting tempted to try this look. I have a neutral eyeshadow palette from inglot, the same one you have in black. 🙂 Will try this for sure. 🙂

    The lipstick shade is soo pretty. 🙂

    1. Rati..dont know if you saw comment I left on your video tutorial..so am rewriting it..I tried your eyemakeup…and it looked not bad at all on me. Am so happy I can actually use eyeshadows – loved the smokey look on you but was thinking I will look like :panda: but I don’t.. 😀

  3. Oh soooo glad you liked it… i am a fan of stark eye makeup… But can’t wear it everyday… Especially b’coz I teach.. So i have to be all propah!!!

    I love this lippie from Colorbar… Top of all my favourites!!!

    Ooh… I wanna see tht neutral Inglot palette of yours…. Pics pls!!!

    Btw, I am not talking to you and Rima… :smug: :smug: Coz you meet up often!!! :-X

    1. You are invited to come to Delhi and we’ll all gang up. 😛 Will upload the pics today .We get so busy talking that we almost forgot taking pictures yesterday also. 😛

      I bought the heena green lakme eyeliner . That;s a very pretty khaki colour with golden shimmer. The bourjois khaki didn’t appeal to us much.

      Okay will post the piccy of neutral eyeshadow palette also. 🙂

    2. aww mrun you have to come to delhi! rati and i were talking about how much fun it would be! bad make up party and all that :laugh: 😛
      i have the henna gold from lakme and also use it very often. it never occurred to me that it’s a very good khaki-ish colour. seeing the swatches of the bourjois khol and contour actually impressed me so i think i temporarily forgot about the lakme liner. in reality, the bourjois khaki didn’t appeal to both rati and me.

  4. Thanks Mrun :-* :-* :-* And I have all those colours with me so I can try it right away :-* :-* :-* :dance: :dance: :dance:

      1. Well… I personally feel the fairness obession is a gift of the 150 yrs of enslavement by the British….

        It’s common all over the world.. But is more prominent in India, as the Indian skin tone varies drastically!!! We are not all brown like Africans, not all yellow like other Asians…

        So we tend to opt for uniformity(?)… That’s the most positive approach of looking at the fairness craze…

        But it’s changing… for the better…
        .-= Mrunmayee´s last blog ..Jovees Gold Eye Contour gel- Review =-.

        1. Hmm… the reason why the post struck a chord was this-

          My partner, who is my best friend’s younger brother, has a dark complexion. Since his childhood, I have seen him applying fair n lovely vigorously. The fairness cream did not make much difference to his complexion. Frankly, Rati and I don’t give a damn about his skin color. We like him as he is. But I have seen him being very touchy about this topic. And his concern for his complexion shows in his attitude towards his appearance. He would not go out of his house without dressing up and he is always careful about his looks. He is very tall and smart and I really do not understand why he should bother with his complexion.

          The same behavior I see in some girls with dark complexion also- excessive makeup or fussiness towards appearance.

          And I have a particular feeling that the negativity comes from parents or schoolmates during childhood.

          1. Quite possible… This is seen especially if one sibling is fair and other is dark…

            PArents sometimes knowingly and sometimes inadvertently compare… Which may lead to such behaviour…

            But with more and more dusky models and actors/actresses coming up, this is not a big issue in cities…

            After all, in India, the beauty standards are set by film heroes/heroines!!!

            But one should always prize health and fitness over skin colour… Self esteem cannot depend on such a trivial issue…
            .-= Mrunmayee´s last blog ..Jovees Gold Eye Contour gel- Review =-.

            1. Umm… The thing which makes me wonder is that what if people’s attitude and reaction is instinctive and natural and not because of enslavement of the british or any such proposed reason. Isn’t appeal of beauty instant and instinctive?

              1. No it’s not…
                Our notions of beauty are conditioned since our childhood..
                And so is our parent’s…

                So we inherit the notions of beauty…
                If you are raised to appreciate beauty in everything, that’s a different case…

                For example: My nanima hates anybody with coloured hair… She loves jet black hair.. Mu mom carried the legacy forward and opted for the hair dye.. So for many years i could not accept anybody with brown, golden or red hair.. they were not beautiful!!! But my perspective has changed.. But I may trasfer some traits to my children…

                One more example… Fashion trends change every three months… So what is beautiful for me right now, will not be so the next season!!!!

                1. @ Sanjeev
                  Thanks for bringing this up and I am sorry about my earlier comment about Indian men. I was just being facetious, and didn’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings.
                  You’re very right about this thinking being reinforced by family and friends, and I have seen my own well educated relatives pick on my darker-skinned cousins for this reason. It’s really heartbreaking because I see the toll it takes on them and their self esteem (just like it did with your friends). It makes them define themselves according to what they look like and even judge others looks incessantly.
                  As a friend you’re doing the best you can, and I’m so proud that there’s people that care to look beyond the color pf someone’s skin. I for one don’t entertain any talk of fair/dark skin that comes from either my relatives or my friends. It’s really hard and they feel I’m stuck up because it’s just so normal for them!

                  @ Mrunmayee and Sanjeev- I think the whole light skin is better was ingrained in Indian psyche even before colonization by the British. In the west too, pale skin was revered because it was a sign of an upper class upbringing (as opposed to the peasants that worked in the hot sun) I think at some point there was a shift in their thinking and people that were tan were considered more affluent cause they could afford long vacations in warm parts of the world (I clearly need to read up more on this!)
                  Ofcourse this thinking got deeply ingrained in the Indian mind following colonization by white skinned people.
                  I just want to add that beauty isn’t objective, the idea of it changes from place to place in the world and from time to time (Mrunmayee’s point about her grandma illustrates this point). And I remember in the early 90’s there was this whole bronze beauty revolution in India which was pretty short lived. I do see an acceptance amongst women for brown skin, but not as much in society as a whole.

          2. Even i’m dark(not too dark, medium indian skin tone i should say) but i’m proud of it. my complexion was never an issue with me, my parents(my parents are very fair) or my friends 🙂

  5. hi M, thx a lot sweetu…………………lov u…..
    Neutral eye makeup is what i can carry in my work place.. so definately i’ll try this look out…..n is looking v preety on u.. :inlove:

  6. i love neutral and bold make up equally. i never had a good eye shadow base, so i would wear bold colours only when it was needed for a few hours. now that i have a good base, i hope this trend changes! i just love eye shadows and wished they stayed on longer!

  7. Hey Mrun…..lovely look!!!! very natural n easily wearable….I want to get a pink e/s trio…maybe Chambor or Bourjois…will check out both

          1. They are not very pigmented. They are just soft colours and can be worn on day to day basis. But I prefer pigmented ones. You can always soften them up. 🙂

  8. i m wondering y u guys don’t load videos on youtube instead of pics.it will b more easier 2 learn frm videos.anyways like pics too.its fun watching them.love this make up.will try it out.b/w has any1 used cake eyeliner & how is it?

  9. I like this look M, soft and subtle.. makes me wish I could start working again (just so I cld wear makeup more often) 😀
