FOTD: Classic Makeup Look

Hi Bellas,

Happy Friday!  Today's makeup look is classic.  It's a great combo to pull out when you want a polished look.  I actually used my 26 Neutral Palette to accomplish this look so don't be afraid to dust yours off.  Check it out!
I wore this makeup look when I filmed a video for the upcoming Beat and Snatched YouTube channel.  I was doing a makeover on a model and wanted to look put together but not steal the show.  I also decided to shop my stash and pulled out my 26 Neutral Palette.  I think so many people have this palette and I like to use it in case you all want to duplicate the look.
I added a shimmery L'oreal neutral pinky peach shadow on the lid for a bit of dimension and pop.  In the crease I have a pink and warm brown.  I contoured the outer v and lower lashline with a matte dark brown.  I love using mattes to contour and shimmer on the lid - it's a good, flattering mix for real life and photography.
Whenever I'm around other makeup artists, I tend to go with neutrals.  I'm not sure why exactly, but it always seems like a solid, mature route to take.
I actually wore this on a super early morning so the look was pretty light and appropriate.  Pinks and browns are always an easy combo to wear.
I warmed the look up by going for a peachy lip and incorporating the bronzer from my cheeks into my eye makeup in the crease.  Remember, with makeup you can never go wrong with a classic look.  It goes with everything!  Have a great weekend!

i think they're an asian brand called model 21 where 10 come in a box- but they're criss cross lashes that are longer on the edges
