Learn how to create a nude eye without using eye shadow

Want to streamline your makeup routine so you can get out the door in a flash? Nude makeup looks are ideal for busy days. While you can certainly layer multiple neutral eye shadow colors to create a glamorous look, it’s nice to have a fast, reliable alternative when you’re running short on time.
This tutorial will teach you how to enhance your eyes with bronzer and eyeliner pencil. Perfect your brows first, and then use your regular bronzer to define the crease of your eye. Choose a soft, workable eyeliner pencil for this look, because you’ll want to soften and smudge the line with a flat eye shadow brush. Finish the eyes with mascara and add neutral lipstick to round out the effect.

Fierce League
1. Use the eyebrow pencil to fill in sparse areas in your brows, and then groom them with the attached screw brush.
2. Warm up the eye area by sweeping bronzer on the crease and outer corner. Lightly sweep bronzer below your lower lashes as well.
3. Apply brown eyeliner pencil above the upper lashes and below the lower ones as well. Diffuse the pigment with a flat eye shadow brush.
4. Brighten the eye by applying nude eyeliner pencil on the lower waterline. This technique also makes your eyes look larger.
5. Apply one or two coats of black mascara to your upper lashes.
6. For stay-all-day coverage, line your lips with dusty rose lip pencil, and then fill them in completely.
7. Intensify your lip color by applying matte toffee lipstick on top of the lip liner.
8. For longevity, spritz your face with setting spray. Tip: Hold the bottle 6-8 inches away from your skin to avoid leaving wet droplets on your face.
Stay pretty!
