Simple, neutral kitten-eye with soft pink lips and cheeks

I've been into glowing, barely-there cheeks recently, and you can pair it with both dark makeup, as well as softer ones. 

This time around I'm matching it with a simple, soft neutral eye and soft, cool-pink lips.

Step 1: Pack a shimmery ivory-beige shade to the inner 3/4 of the lid, leaving the outermost corner empty.

Step 2: With a taupe brown (e.g. MAC Satin Taupe) and a small pointed brush, draw in the outer V, and deepen the socket line up to the center. Blend out with a soft blending brush so there are no harsh lines.

Step 3: Apply black liquid liner and angle upwards slightly in a flick. (If you find it hard to draw from the eye outwards, then try the reverse. Hold the brush horizontally, set the tip down on the outermost point where you want the flick to end, and gently pull the brush INWARDS to meet the main part of your eye liner.)
Line your waterline (lower lid) with a pale matte yellow or beige pencil to widen your eyes.

Step 4: Lashes make a lot of difference for this look since it's so simple. You can leave it out for the day, but I know a lot of girls who will just wear super-dramatic lashes to work anyway.
I chose spiky, separated lashes that are longest at the outer corners, and applied black mascara to the lower lash line.

The rest of the face:
  • MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Dark (light contouring)
  • MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Porcelain Pink
  • NYX Paris lipstick


  1. Very very pretty! Did you also use Satin Taupe to line your lower lids?

  2. Hi yampuddinglove,
    Good eye! Yes I did run the taupe shade along the outer halves of my lower lash line in Step 2, and forgot to include that in the instructions!

  3. What matte pencil did you use for waterline?

    1. I used Nars Rue Bonaparte here. But NYX's matte yellow pencil is great too!

  4. I have been casting spells for many years and I have helped many people, I might be able to help you too. I am honest, and I genuinely care for all the clients who choose me to cast a spell for them.

    I perform my Rituals only at night between the hours of 0.00 - 0.59 (South African time) lasting 1 hour but of course, this depends on the nature of the ritual, some rituals might take hours and can also become necessary to be performed at specials places like; flowing streams, cemeteries and other places dictated by the gods.
    I do not want anyone to be under any illusions about my spells and its numerous rituals. Real and effective Voodoo is no child's play, it is expensive because, after the rituals, I will have to destroy all the materials involved by fire and the ashes scattered over a flowing stream or river.
    You will get what you seek.But please understand this might take a lot of time and that individual results may vary. contact +27663492930,
