makeup tutorial: my go-to look

ok, to be perfectly honest, I don't have an "everyday makeup" look. There is rarely a time where I even have on the same look two days in a row. But I do have several "go-to" looks, which I pull out if I don't feel like brainstorming and creating a whole new one.
So here is one of my two go-to looks (can you count how many times I've said "look" already? ;]), and this one is more natural than the other one, so you can absolutely where this with anything!

my go-to makeup look
products used:
Revlon Creme Shadow
Lancome Quad(this is not the exact product I used but it's very similar)
wet n wild eyeliner pencil in white
Physicians Formula: Shimmer Strips Eyeliner Trio in Black
wet n wild jumbo pencil in pixie
Covergirl Lash Perfection Mascara

step one: prime your lids

step two: pack on a light mauve shadow on your whole lid

step three: sweep a gold shadow into your crease

step four: pat a dark purple/brown shadow into your outer corner

step five: smudge that same purple/brown shadow on your lower lash-line

step six: line your waterline with white eyeliner and highlight your inner corner

step seven: smudge a black liner on your upper lash-line

step eight: coat your lashes with several coats of mascara


as you can see, this look is pretty natural. Tell me what you think! And, as always, please leave any requests for future tutorials in a comment :)
