It was about time I did another tutorial! This one is for those amongst us with tiny eyelid space or hooded eyes. When you don't have a lot of space on your eyelid to put eyeshadow on, you sometimes have to become a little bit creative. This eyeshadow look is very suitable for everyday wear, will give the appearance of lifting the eyes and will utilize the space that you have to give the illusion of more depth and space.
I made this look entirely with the Naked palette from Urban Decay, but it's absolutely not necessary to have this eyeshadow palette to recreate the look. All you need is eyeshadow colours that are a bit similar, which shouldn't be too difficult since they're all nude shades.
First of all, prime your eyes with an eye primer! This will make the make-up last longer, prevent creasing of the eyeshadow and it will make the eyeshadow look more intense too.
Step 1: Shimmery nude
Step 2: Gold
With that same brush, grab a golden colour and pat it in the area shown in the diagram. I feel like this gives an almost rose-gold tinge to the look whilst still keeping it light and natural.
Step 3: Pinky Brown
With a smaller brush, use a darker colour - in our case, a brown with pink undertones - and carefully apply that in your crease. If you can't see your crease try to feel with your fingers where the eyeball ends and the browbone begins. Just under the brownbone is your crease.
Step 4: Blend!
Take your fluffy blendin brush and blend the areas shown above. Blend the colour towards the browbone with little jerky windshield motions and blend the colours together on the lid with gentle little swirling motions.
Step 5: Matte warm brown
I forgot to add this in the tutorial, but I also added a bit of the brown colour under the lower lashline.
And there you have it, a neutral look for people with little eyelid space! Super wearable and light, but still pretty and flattering. The shape of the eye look also means that it visually lifts the eye, so it makes them look a bit brighter and more awake too!
I hope this tutorial was useful, let me know if you try it out!
