1-2-3: Quick, Natural Eye Makeup!

In a rush? No time for an intro, let's get into this less-than-five-minutes eye makeup look!

It's part of my new blog series, 1-2-3. It's a list-based series focused on quick solutions!

Feel free to swap out any of the products mentioned for comparable ones in your collection.

1. NAKED on the Run

I love this kit! I won it at a makeup class, and have been experimenting with it ever since. It's my first eye shadow palette, so I'm a newbie with this.

I go in with my MAC 233 Split Fibre Eye Shadow Brush to apply the second eye shadow in the included row of five, called Fix. Fix is a soft taupe matte, and it's gorgeous. Ultra natural-looking and barely detectable, it's perfect for the simplistic look I aim for. I keep the pigment on my eyelids, but smoke out the edges with the brush so there's a natural taper; I don't like the look of a harsh line.

2. MAC Cosmetics Full Lash Curler (Drugstore Dupe: Revlon Extra Curl Eyelash Curler)

Next, I go in with my MAC Cosmetics Full Lash Curler and curl, gurl, curl! Nothing like a simple step like this to really open up your eyes.

3. Benefit Cosmetics They're Real! Lengthening & Volumizing Mascara in Beyond Brown

Oh. My. God. Holy grail mascara, right here. No clumps, no drama, just a great wand in general and a gorgeous, natural brown color. Substitute with the black version if you like a darker look (or use the amazing included Perversion mascara from the NAKED On the Run kit). Don't forget your bottom lashes, if you want your eyes to truly pop!

There you have it! A quick and easy eye look. What's your eye color? Mine's blue! Comment below.
