Natural Glam Makeup Tutorial Using The Lorac Pro Palette

When I released my "The Power Of Makeup" post, I received some negative feedback, though for the most part I received overwhelming waves of love and support. But, to be honest, I understood where some of the negative feedback was coming from. While I love a dramatic smokey eye, it's not everyone's cup of tea. Sooo I thought a natural glam tutorial would be a great way to address that. Whether you are afraid of going overboard with your makeup or you're in a serious time crunch and can't be bothered with anything elaborate, this tutorial will still have you looking put together and glam. FYI: I was getting over an allergic reaction to the NYX White Liquid Liner, so if my eyelids look all weird and funky, it's because they are. Please excuse that - they're all better now!

1 After priming my lid with the Lorac Behind The Scenes Eye Primer, I used a large fluffy brush and windshield wiper motions to disperse Taupe from the Lorac Pro Palette through my transition area between the crease and the brow bone.

2 Afterwards I dampened my flat synthetic brush with a tiny amount of Inglot Duraline so that I could apply Gold from the Lorac Pro Palette foiled to my entire lid. I went back in with my fluffy brush to blend out any harsh lines between Taupe and Gold.

3 Taking Sable and a small, dense smudger brush, I ran the eyeshadow along the outer two thirds of my upper lash line, extending it past my natural eye line. I wanted this to be somewhat subtle to start off with so I made sure to blend it out well with a slimmer, more dense blending brush.

4 With the same smudger brush, I applied Espresso over the same area, but closer to my lash line. I prefer building color, especially for more natural looks because it gives you control and keeps you from going overly smokey. Be sure to blend this out as well.

5 For the final bit of definition to the upper lash line, I added the tiniest bit of Black with the smudger brush again. Then, taking a makeup remover wipe, I clean up any fallout and created a crisp sharp line at the outer edge of my eye. On days when you can't be bothered to apply winged eyeliner, smoking out your eyeshadow is a quick, fool-proof way to glam up your look on the go.

6 Apply finishing touches! I used a bit of Maybelline Color Tattoo in Chocolate Suede along the waterline and smudged it out with Espresso and a pencil brush. Lastly, I applied House of Lashes in the style "Boudoir" to finish off the look.
