Eyeshadow School Makeup Tips & Tricks Tutorials

Date Night Makeup

This makeup look is pretty much gorgeous on anyone.

It’s a dark eye + nude lip that is SO easy.

Whether you are an eye shadow ninja who applies every layer with skill and precision or you are like me…somewhat lacking on the perfectionism scale,  YOU can do this look.

      Yes! I use Garnier Fructise color in Soft black for my roots…and other than that my hair is a total mutt of chocolatey brown and who knows what over the years but I mostly just leave that alone and dye the roots….

    looks great! i always want to do this look, but i have super sensitive/allergic skin and my lips break out in sores if i use certain kinds of lipstick or gloss… i’ve found i can only use some in the smashbox or maybelline brands. can you recommend any lip colors in those lines? i LOVE your nude lip, it’s perfect.

    Perfect I love it! Question I’ve been loosing sleep over: I don’t own any ‘nice’ eye shadows, do you think the moon shadow pallet would be a good starting place for someone who isn’t planning on buying many other eye shadows anytime soon? I’ve noticed you have used it in other tutorials. Also I want to buy some ‘nice’ brushes for said eyeshadow, are there a few you can recommend that are essential for a variety of looks? Thankyou so much for your amazing tutorials and being so down to earth about makeup! I love love your blog!
    Oh one more thing-would love to see tutorial on the hair you have in the picture here!

    Ahh I love it!! Can you please do some tutorials on the Moonshadow Baked Palette – In The Nude? I got that because you said it was one of your top ten products…and I would love to see a beautiful way to use it….because I lack any skills in the makeup department. Thanks so much! Keep posting tutorials please! I’m learning so much from you.

      July 18, 2012 at 4:17 am

      YES! I am sorry I should have mentioned in the tutorial that you could TOTALLY do this same look with that pallet too! Basically the exact same way I did with the new one!

    I have kind of an unrelated question about your skin tone..I love dark hair on me about the color of yours but I find that unless I am fairly tan it always washes me out, especially in the winter when I can get really pale. Do you tan a lot? Or if not, what kind of bronzer/self-tan do you use?

    • Reply
      August 20, 2012 at 9:33 pm

      I am olive but when I don’t tan I am white as a sickly ghost! My skin rarely sees the real sun though, it’s all my self tanner to blame! I’m obsessed with it! Sun Laboratories Tan Overnight Self Tanning

    Just want to stop by and tell you how wonderful I think your tutorials are. And it really helps that you are very personable and sweet. I’ve never had the confidence to do anything crazy with my makeup until now. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for these tutorials. I get so many compliments on my looks lately and it’s all because of you! Keep in being amazing!

    Do you have a natural tan in this picture or is it the sunless tanner? If it’s the tanner, I’m buying it ASAP!
