Easy 5-minute Eye Makeup Tutorial

4 Materials
5 Minutes

Hello, my lovelies. Today I want to teach you to do an easy 5-minute eye makeup. I'm going to be using a Natasha Denona palette I got it a while ago, but you can use any palette with similar colors.

I bought it mainly for three colors: the one in the middle and the side ones. The peachy, beautiful rose gold color in the middle is just beautiful.

I was not too sure about the other two colors: sort of gray with a mossy green, khaki undertone. None of them are matte, although the gray one on the left is satin that you can use in your crease as matte, and the gray one on the right is not too shimmery.

Tools and materials:

  • Natasha Denona 5 Palette #08 (or similar)
  • Eyeshadow brushes
  • Eye pencil
  • Mascara
Natasha Denona palette swatches

Here are the swatches, they look stunning. 

I have used this palette before, mostly in the summer, and I usually only used the lighter, pinkish eyeshadow.

My task today is to try to combine the pink colors with the gray ones for an easy quick eye makeup. It seems like a strange combination, but I think it might work. Let's get started!

Applying dark shadow to crease

1. Apply the darkest color on your crease

First, take the darkest satin gray color and apply it on your crease.

I am using a Rephr 13 brush. Be gentle because it might be a bit dark. This one has a slight shimmer to it, but it is not so shimmery that it would look bad in a crease. Blend it upwards.

I am going to also apply it with the same brush on an outer V. 

This eyeshadow is very cool, I think this would fit right in with her glam palette. And of course, the peach is quite warm. That is why I think it is quite an interesting combination. 

Adding peach eyeshadow

2. Apply the middle peach on the mobile lid

Apply the peach color on most of your mobile lid, right up to that crease. I am using Sonia G Worker Pro.

This eyeshadow looks pretty on its own, and with a brush it is even more intense. I have also tried using the Charlotte Tilbury “Eyes to mesmerize” cream eyeshadow in rose gold underneath, and that gives a really intense look as well, if you are looking for pink eye shadow ideas. But just a dry brush works well, too.

3. Apply lighter shade to the corners of the eyes

With the other side of this brush, go to the lighter shadow and apply it in the corner.

4. Deepen the gray-green on your crease and outer V

Even though I was not sure about this combination, it is working, so I will add some more dark green on my crease.

Then, I am going to wet my Rephr 28 brush and really darken the outer V with the darkest color.  

Blending eyeshadow

Blend the edges.

Applying shadow to the lower lash line

5. Apply makeup lower lash line

Apply the lighter gray on the lower lash line. I am using Rephr 03.

This one is less intense, so it is better to wet the brush.

Then go back to the dark one and do the very edge of the eye. 

Applying shadow under eyes

Apply the peach under your eyes.

Applying shadow to the corner of the eye

Add the lightest color on the lower corner of the eye. I am using Rephr 23.

Lining eyes

6. Line your eyes

Apply eye pencil on about half of your eye and wing it a bit. I am using a dark brown Delilah eye pencil.

Lining eyes

Apply eyeliner on the waterline, too.

Applying mascara

7. Apply mascara

Lately I have been using two mascaras: Catrice glam & doll and Anastasia Lash Brag mascara.

I use the Catrice one first, and then top it off with Anastasia.

It is an unusual combination, but I like the result overall. I hope you enjoyed this easy eye makeup tutorial.
