Pair brown and ivory shadow with CC cream for this naturally beautiful look

Neutral makeup is a win-win. It’s usually achieved with just a few shades and meant to enhance your natural appearance without looking heavy. CC cream offers quick, light coverage while smoothing out your skin tone. Pairing taupe and ivory eye shadow enhances and brightens the eyes simultaneously.
Pink blush and mauve cream multi-stick add a cheery brightness to this neutral palette and give your face dimension. If you’ve never used concealer as a contouring product, pick up your favorite brand in a dark shade with cool undertones. The liquid melds perfectly with the CC cream, so you won’t see any harsh lines or artificial sparkles that are sometimes found in powder products.
