Makeup can be a daunting task , but here I will explain to you how to create a simple day to evening look using just 4 colors and a few simple steps.

For this tutorial I used three brands of makeup. If you don’t have these specific colors don’t worry, just use something similar!
I used the “True Romance” eyeshadow palette by Kate Von D, Sonia Kashuk sparkle and shimmer loose eye powder in “Bronze” and Maybelline Eyestudio gel eyeliner.

          
You will need the following type of brushes:

Starting from the left:
A medium or small sized flat brush for the lid
A crease brush for the crease of your eye
A large flat brush for the brow bone
To apply the eyeliner you will need an angled eyeliner brush (it’s what I prefer)

To create the day look take the “Meditation” color the eye palette and place it over your entire lid

Next with your crease brush use the “Bronze” color by Sonia Kashuk and in a back and forth motion place in the crease of your eye. Be sure to blend well.
Now take your large flat brush and place the “Sugar Skull” color along your brow bone to highlight, also place on the inner corner of your eyes to open them up!

 

Finally using your angled brush create a cat eye with your gel eyeliner. If you’re not comfortable with creating a cat eye a simple line will do.

Now time to take your simple day time took to and evening look by adding just one more color!
You may use your crease brush for this or if you have a smudge brush use that.
Take the “Tijuana” color for the palette and place in the outer creases of your eyes and work it into a V shape. Be sure to blend very well!

I also like to smudge a little bit under my lower lash line
Once you have added the darker color you may need to touch up the other colors just to make sure they are all blended together.

 

My simple day to evening look.

 I believe keeping your makeup simple and not over the top is the best way to show off your beautiful face!
