The summer has finally left New York, which means two things: the streets no longer constantly smell of hot garbage and my wardrobe will primarily focus on beanies. One of my favorite eyeshadow looks I like to pair with my *forever beanie* lifestyle is a warm neutral eye. For this look I used my Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette , but you can definitely achieve this look with any warm neutral palette (the Urban Decay eyeshadow formula is one of my favorites though, so if you’re in the market for a new orange toned neutral palette you should definitely check this one out).
Step 1: Prime and Set
First you are going to place eyeshadow primer or a matte concealer all over your lid and blend it out using a concealer brush. Once blended out, take a large fluffy blending brush and apply a translucent powder all over your lid. For this I primed my eyes with the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Eden and set with the Soap & Glory Kick-Ass Instant Retouch Pressed Powder
Step 2: Transition Shade
Using a medium-sized blending brush dip into the shade Chaser (light nude matte) and blend it into your crease and the lower portion of your brow bone.
Step 3: Deepen the Crease
Using a small pencil brush, dip into the shade Low Blow (brown matte) and apply it to the outer v of your eye and extend it to your crease. Once applied, use a medium sized blending brush to soften and blend.
Step 4: Lid
Using a flat shading brush, apply the shade Dirty Talk (metallic burnt red) to the remaining space on your lid.
Step 5: Add Some Depth
Using a small pencil brush, apply the shade He Devil (burnt red matte) to the outer corner of your eye. Once applied, use a small fluffy blending brush to soften and blend your outer corner and lid together.
Step 6: Apply Liner and Mascara
These days I’ve been a huge fan of using clay pot liners and angled eyeliner brushes to do my eyeliner. I’m wearing Tarte’s Clay Pot Waterproof Shadow Liner in Bronze and Too Faced’s Better Than Sex Mascara.
Step 7: Finish Up
Take a small pencil brush and apply the shade Chaser (light nude matte) to your lower lash line. Then apply mascara to your lower lashes and fill in your brows, and you’ll be good to go!
