We’ve gathered some of our favourite makeup tutorials in one handy post, and made sure all of them are easy enough for you to follow yourself. Let us know which looks you try out!
Silver to Grey Blend – Easy Step By Step Makeup Tutorial For Beginners
Starting with a white eyeshadow, sweep it across the eye from the inner to outer corners. Taking your black shade, take it from the outer corner of the eye and blend it back towards the middle of the centre of the eye. Take a light brown and smudge it through the crease of the eye and blend out. Use a kohl eyeliner to line the water line, and a flat brush to smudge it out. Lashings of mascara will finish the look perfectly!
Blue and Black Kohl Look – Simple Step By Step Makeup Tutorial For Beginners
Take a white eyeliner and draw under your eyebrow for a touch of highlight. Taking a black kohl eyeliner, line right around the eyes close to the lash line and in the water line. Use a fluffy brush to smudge it out, then taking a turquoise shade smudge it right across the eyelid. Using a matte neutral, smudge it right through the crease. Use a turquoise glitter and tap it right across the eyelid for a fancy finish.
White to Pink Blend – Step By Step Makeup Tutorials For Blue Eyes
This pretty pink look is easy to achieve! Start with your white eyeshadow, and use it in the inner corner including around the tear duct, blending it towards the centre of the eyelid. Take a baby pink shade and blend from the centre of the eyes outwards. Finishing with a grey, add lightly to the outer corner of the eyelid and blend into the pink. Finish with kohl eyeliner in the water line and lots of mascara.
Blue Blended Look
Start with a navy eyeliner, and use it to line the lash line of the eyelid from the outer corner towards the centre. Blend this look out. Taking a navy eyeshadow, add depth to this navy corner of the eye by blending it from the outer corner in. Then, with a lighter blue, blend this line further into the centre of the eye. Take the blue eyeshadow under the eye, and using a white kohl, add it to the water line. Finish with mascara.
Mauve Matte Blend – Easy Step By Step Eye Makeup Tutorials For Beginners
Taking a light gold shade, blend it right across the eyelid. Blend a matte mauve shade into the crease and smudge out lightly. Taking your eyeliner, run th eline along the lashes, and finish with a thick flick which lines parallel to the end of the eyebrow. Add false eyelashes to really make the eyes pop.
Shimmering Silver Eye – Step By Step Eye Makeup Tutorials For Brown Eyes
Taking a light champagne eyeshadow, blend seamlessly across the eyelid. Then with a slate grey eyeshadow, blend from the inner corner towards the centre, and from the outer corner towards the centre, leaving a gap of the champagne eyeshadow in the centre. Line the eyes on the top and bottom lids with a black kohl, and add false eyelashes for the perfect finish.
Subtle Smokey Eye
Take a light bronze eyeshadow and work across the entire eyelid. Using a light grey, sweep on top of the bronze and blend out towards the outer corner. Bring the grey eyeshadow under the eye and along the bottom lash line, and pack on the pigment for the outer corner using the grey eyeshadow to build a real smokey effect. Use a kohl eyeliner to draw a line close to the lashes on the eyelid, and finish with mascara.
Beautiful Bronze Blend
One of the most striking looks from the collection, yet comfortably one of the easiest, is this beautiful bronze blend which has stolen our hearts. Take a dark brown eyeshadow and add it to the inner corner of the eye and the outer corner of the eye, leaving the centre of the eyelid free. With a gold shade, pat into the centre of the eyelid to finish the look off. Bring the brown eyeshadow along the bottom lash line, and blend the bronze tones seamlessly on the eyelid.
Glowing Eye with Smudged Flick
Taking a stunning and shimmery champagne shade, use your brush to work the colour right across the eyelids, paying particular attention to the inner corner to really get that shimmer. Use a soft brown to clend into the crease, and taking a black eyeshadow, create a flick from the outer corner parallel to the eyebrow. Smudge this line out for an exceptional finish and add lashings of mascara.
