Neutral Spring Look with Pop of Color

Hello my beautiful readers! In today's blog post I want to show you how to create one of my favorite looks - neutral makeup with pop of color. This look is perfect for spring. It is subtle, elegant and beautiful.

This look can be worn on a daily basis. You can customize the look using different color as a pop color. It can be purple, green or any color that matches your outfit. I would suggest pairing this look with peachy or pink colored lipstick. But you can go with nude lip colors or just a lipgloss as well.
Let's get started!

1. As usual, priming the eyelids are essential. Apply eye shadow base all over the lids, both upper and lower lids. 
2. Apply beige/champagne color on your lid using eyeshadow brush. It can be either shimmery color or matte. I chose shimmery color, since it instantly brightens up the look.
3. Apply matte bronze color on your crease and using blending brush, blend it out well. 
4. Take a pop color of your choice and apply it on the entire lower lid of the eye. I picked bright turquoise color and used pencil brush to apply on my lower lid. Also apply highlight to the browbone area and inner corner of the eye. 
5. You can apply the same colored eyeliner or the white eyeliner on the waterline of the eye. Finish by applying your favorite eyeliner and mascara. 

That's it! Simple and pretty spring makeup look is complete. Enjoy recreating it! Good luck!
