In today’s video, I am sharing with you my everyday eye shadow look! These warm brown tones are complementary to every eye color, which is what makes this everyday eye shadow look so universal!
What I’m Using
For just about every eye shadow look, I use the Jaclyn Hill x Morphe palette, but this look can be created with any warm-toned shadows you may have!
What You’ll Need & how to use it
Eye Shadow Brushes: This is the set I use!
A light shadow or powder to set the concealer:
Before you start adding color, you need to set your blank canvas (concealer), so nothing moves on the eyelid. A thin layer of powder to start also makes the colored shadows blend out better. I used the Laura Mercier translucent setting powder.
Buffing a light transition shade into your crease creates an ombre like effect from your skin color, to what will become the darkest color in the eye shadow look. It is always best to take an eye shadow look from lightest to darkest. This concept makes any look appear more natural and seamless & it also makes it easier for you to apply and blend out the darker shades. The shade I used: Jaclyn Hill Palette ‘Silk Creme’.
In this particular look, my crease color is just a bit darker than the transition shade, and we are placing it in just about the same spot as the transition- just lightly below to create that ombre effect. The intended goal with every shadow we use is so to slowly get darker and darker to work our way up to the darkest shade. The shade I used: Jaclyn Hill Palette ‘Pukey’.
The darkest shade we want to keep lower on the eyelid and place it mainly in the outer corner of the eye. A rule of thumb for a standard eye shadow look like this is to keep darker shades on the outer corner, and lighter shades on the inner corner. Lighter colors open up the eye and make surfaces appear bigger, whereas darker colors shrink them. This same concept alines with highlighting and contouring of the face. The shades I used: Jaclyn Hill Palette mix of ‘Mocha’ and ‘Buns’.
Like I said before, lighter colors bring attention to that area, so next, we are going to take this shimmery color and lightly dab it on the center of the eyelid just with your finger and blend out the sides to make sure there are no harsh lines from light to dark. The shade I used: Jaclyn Hill Palette ‘Obsessed’.
Inner Corner Highlight:
Next, we are going to take the lightest shades, and lightly place it over the very inner corner of your eye. This opens up the eye look & makes you appear more awake. The shade I used: Jaclyn Hill Palette ‘Enlight’.
Lower Lash Line:
To tie everything together, lastly, we are taking the crease color & the darkest shade and lightly buffing them in on the lower lash line. The shades I used: Jaclyn Hill Palette ‘Pukey’ & mix of ‘Mocha’ and ‘Buns’.
