Although I like to experiment with a lot of shadows and colors in one eye look, I also really enjoy a simple look you can achieve with minimal shadows. This specific tutorial is going to highlight a beautiful fall look, that only requires two eyeshadows! If you have a deep brick red shade, and a matte cool tone brown, you can easily recreate this eye look. Keep reading to learn how to achieve it!
The first thing you want to do for this look is lay down the crease shade. For this, I used the shade Hush Hush and blended it from side to side with a Moda Pro Blending Brush. Try to apply the shade with light pressure, as we will continue to build the color after we add the cranberry color.
To give the look more depth, I decided to do a deep brick shade. This really helped achieve a seasonally appropriate eye. I used the shade Sparks, which I had never tried before. I like that Jaclyn Hill chose to make it a matte shade, because it really gives the color vibrance, and it stands out. I blended it using a Luxie 2027 Brush. The brush has the ability to not only blend the shade, but also packs it in, so it has a lot of pigment.
I applied the color to the outer third of the eye, and then blended that up into the crease, stopping about halfway on the eye. To make sure the whole eye looked cohesive, I blended the cranberry color onto the lower under eye. After this, I applied more of Hush Hush to the crease and under eye, to soften any harsh lines the cranberry shade may have created.
If you can believe it, that’s the whole look! This look shows that whether you choose to use two shades, or seven, you can still create an amazing color story with eyeshadow. This look would be so beautiful with fake eyelashes, and I kind of wish I had taken photos with them. If you do try the look with lashes, leave a photo in the comments, so I can see!
