The Quickest Makeup Look Ever

Shimmery neutral eyeshadows should be staples in every makeup bag.  They're ridiculously simple to apply, difficult to mess up, and a super quick way to look effortlessly pulled together.  I swear it takes less than three minutes to finish both eyes.  I like to pair it with red lipstick (naturally!) but any lip color will work!  That's the beauty of neutrals, right?

My eyeshadow looks uneven in this picture, but I assure you it's not. Mad photography skillz here!

In Color FabuLiner black liquid eyeliner
NYX eyebrow pencil in Velvet
Urban Decay eyeshadow in Sin all over lid
Urban Decay eyeshadow in Smog blended in crease
They're from the Urban Ammo eye palette, which is one of my favorites and has shades for a zillion different looks.  Unfortunately mine doesn't look so pristine anymore!  But I use it for everything.  The only color I'm not too fond of is Mildew; the rest are wonderful. 

I applied the eyeshadow with E.L.F. brushes.  If you don't own these, you need to!  They're between $1-$3 and the most fabulous bargain ever ever ever.  I'm addicted.  My favorite is the Defining Eye brush.  I use it for everything and have bought several.  They're only a dollar!

What are your favorite neutral eyeshadows or palettes?  And how do you feel about this sort of post?  Would you like me to do more of them?  Let me know what you think!


  1. I really need to pick up Orgasm by Nars *sigh* I love it every time I see it (with a name like that...)

  2. Haha, yes you do! It's my favorite blush ever.

    Orgasm is also a lip gloss, nail polish, illuminator, and multi-stick. Decisions, decisions!

  3. hi, thanks for lovely comment, It's a mix from two shades, red and shiny coral from the brand 'p2'..
