Neutral Look and Tutorial Using MAC Below Ground Greasepaint Stick and 6 Dashing Lassie Palette
Third from the left: Below Ground greasepaint stick
Once Upon a Time Metallic vanilla (Veluxe Pearl), A Dashing Lassie Metallic milk (Frost), Magical Mist Metallic taupe (Lustre)
Bronze Copper penny (Frost), Buckwheat Frosty medium brown (Frost), Showstopper Dark brown (Matte)
Here is a look featuring one of MAC's greasepaint sticks, Below Ground. This is a beautiful shimmery coppery bronze that actually showed through the eyeshadow that I layered over it. It gives a nice, bronzey nuance to the otherwise straightforward neutral eye look.
I also used the Tartan Tale neutral palette in 6 Dashing Lassie for this look.
Here is a step by step. All eye products MAC unless otherwise stated.
Apply Urban Decay primer potion all over lid, browbone and lower lashline. Apply Below Ground greasepaint stick on lid.
Using a stiff shader brush, apply Buckwheat over Below Ground.
Using a stiff shader brush, apply A Dashing Lassie on inner to mid-lid.
Using Charm Pro tapered blending brush (MAC 222 dupe) blender brush, apply Bronze and Showstopper on outer V and crease. Blend with the 224 brush.
Using the Sonia Kashuk brush blending brush, apply more Showstopper on outer lid as necessary to create depth. Blend into Buckwheat using the 224 brush.
Apply more Showstopper and Buckwheat as necessary using the Sonia Kashuk brush, being careful to blend harsh lines using the 224.
Using the Sonia Kashuk bent eyeliner brush, apply Blacktrack fluidline on upper lashline. Using the 227 brush, apply Once Upon A Time on browbone to highlight.
Using a small detail brush, apply Bronze on lower lashline. Tightline using Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Zero, and apply Stila Kajal liner in Topaz on waterline. Apply false lashes. Apply mascara.
