Step-by-Step Neutral Makeup Tutorial


Create the perfect, smooth canvas by applying a makeup primer. To diminish the look of my pores I went for a pore minimizing primer for this look.


Apply and blend in a long-lasting, medium-full coverage foundation that has a matte finish.

Use concealer as necessary to cover blemishes and to brighten dark undereye circles. You may want to use more than one concealer for this, one for under your eyes and one for anywhere else that needs a little touch-up.


Fill in your brows, if necessary, with a brow gel that matches your natural brow color.

Brush a light brown eyeshadow over your entire eyelid.

Blend a neutral, beige eyeshadow into the crease of your eye.

Highlight your brow bone with a shimmering, creamy colored eyeshadow.

Line your upper lash line with a black liquid liner.

Line your lower lash line (your waterline) with a white pencil eyeliner.

Generously brush on a volumizing and lengthening mascara.


Grab a subtle highlighter and blend it in from your temples to the very top of your cheekbones.

Continue with the highlighter by sweeping it halfway down the bridge of your nose.

You can also add a little of this highlighter to your cupid’s bow, doing this will define your lips and make your lip color pop.


Apply a sheer shimmery gloss. 

Spritz on a finishing spray and you’re all set. Go get ’em gorgeous!
