How To Apply Natural-Looking Eyeshadow

When you play up your natural features with a series of grey, taupe, gold, brown, olive, and burnt orange eye shadow shades, you can embrace a natural makeup look that’s totally on trend. Ready to rock a complementary, au naturel eye makeup look? Here’s how to apply eyeshadow for a natural eye makeup look for all different skin tones!

 

NATURAL-LOOKING EYE MAKEUP FOR LIGHT SKIN

If your skin is on the fair to light side, follow the eye makeup tutorial below to learn how to apply eyeshadow for a natural-looking makeup look that utilises light eye shadow shades and brown eyeliner.

STEP 1: APPLY EYE PRIMER

Eye primer is essential for any eye makeup look, including natural eye makeup. No eye primer on hand? No problem! Just apply a dab of the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Total Cover Concealer Palette to help create an even canvas for your eye shadow application.

STEP 2: APPLY TAUPE EYE SHADOW

To add the faintest wash of colour to your lids, swipe the any of the three left shades from the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Nude Palette 002 Beige from your lash line up to your crease. Since this is supposed to add just enough natural-looking colour, you don’t want to extend either eye shadow beyond the upper edge of your crease. What’s more, you don’t want to apply eye shadow so heavily that it creates a harsh line of demarcation. For that reason, it’s best to apply your eye shadow with a fluffy blending brush, as you can use it to gently swipe on colour without creating lines.

STEP 3: ADD DIMENSION FOR BRIGHT EYES

One of the easiest ways to create the appearance of wide-open eyes is to apply a light shimmery eye shadow to the centre of your lid, directly over your pupil. To get the look, apply the first of fifth shade from the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Nude Palette 002 Beige with a tapered blending brush so that it won’t stray all over your lid.

STEP 4: SHAPE EYES WITH EYELINER

Instead of drawing on a harsh and unnatural-looking black line, use a brown eyeliner to line your eyes. If you don’t have a brown eyeliner handy, an awesome hack is to use a dark brown eyeshadow shade with an angled liner brush in replacement. To keep your eyeliner natural-looking, apply it close to your upper lash line and leave your lower lash line bare.

STEP 5: FINISH WITH MASCARA

To finish, apply a light coat of L’Oréal Paris Paradise Exatic Mascara in Black for a set of lashes that look naturally full.

 

 

NATURAL-LOOKING EYE MAKEUP FOR MEDIUM OR OLIVE SKIN

Does your skin fall into the medium or olive range? In that case, read the following natural-looking eye makeup tutorial to learn how to apply eyeshadow for your beautifully bronze skin tone.

STEP 1: START WITH EYE PRIMER

A tiny bit of eye primer or concealer can help make it easier to apply eye shadow. So, regardless of your skin tone or the type of eye makeup look you’re trying to achieve, this should be the first step in your eye makeup routine.

STEP 2: APPLY OLIVE EYE SHADOW

A soft, shimmery olive colour looks beautiful and natural when paired with an olive or medium skin tone. To get the look, start off by applying a very thin wash of olive green eye shadow to your lid between your lash line and crease. Next, add dimension to your eye by darkening your crease with the same eye shadow. Make sure to blend in-between with a fluffy brush for a more natural-looking fade.

STEP 3: LINE YOUR UPPER LASH LINE IN OLIVE

A thin line of greeny-brown eyeliner can help define your eyes just enough that they’ll really pop. No eyeliner that shade? No problem, use an eyeshadow (like the second from the right in this L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Nude Palette 001 Rose) with an angled liner brush instead.

STEP 4: …AND YOUR LOWER LASH LINE IN GOLD

Tracing your lower lash line in a gold eyeliner/eyeshadow, can help brighten the appearance of your eyes.

STEP 5: FINISH WITH MASCARA

Since you have slightly darker skin, black mascara will look beautiful and natural. To coat your lashes to perfection, pick up a tube of the L’Oréal Paris Mega Volume Miss Manga All Black and get to work.

 

 

NATURAL-LOOKING EYE MAKEUP FOR DEEP SKIN

Darker skin tones look particularly stunning in brick eye shadow shades. Try the following natural-looking eye makeup tutorial for your best look yet.

STEP 1: PRIME THOSE LIDS, LADIES

Want an eye makeup look that wears more evenly? Using an eye primer will help with exactly that, so don’t skip this step.

STEP 2: APPLY A BURNT ORANGE EYE SHADOW

Darker lids look gorgeous dusted with rich brick colours. Confine the eye shadow of your choice to your lids and you’ll have a beautiful, earthy, natural-looking eye makeup look on your hands.

STEP 3: CREATE DIMENSION.

Use a tapered blending brush to apply a light brown eye shadow to the centre of your lids.

STEP 4: LINE YOUR LIDS TO PERFECTION

It’s time to break out the liquid eyeliner! Simply trace the L’Oréal Paris Superliner Superstar Black from your inner corner out to the edge of your lash line.

STEP 5: FINISH WITH MASCARA

Reach for your darkest mascara to emphasise your lashes and top off your natural-looking eye makeup look. A few swipes of the L’Oréal Paris Volume Million Lashes Feline Mascara will do the trick.

 

 

THE BEST MAKEUP TO PAIR WITH NATURAL-LOOKING EYE MAKEUP

Since you’re sticking with a natural eye makeup look, you should keep the rest of your makeup natural-looking, too. Use a matte foundation, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation, for a flawless finish, and apply a quick coat of nude lipstick.
