StudioMakeup Ease to Wear Tutorial

Playing and experimenting with different makeup products and techniques is fun and all, but sometimes there’s just nothing better than a classic neutral glam look. When I apply makeup everyday, that’s typically what I aim for. I love accentuating my favorite natural features on my face to create a look that pairs beautifully with any lip color or outfit for all different occasions. I’ve recently been playing around the with StudioMakeup Ease to Wear eyeshadow palette and I’m loving everything it has to offer!
No matter what look we’re creating or what products we’re using, eyeshadow primer should always be the first step! I put on my favorite Milani primer and once that was dry, I took the matte tan shade in the palette called Bare and started lightly buffing that into my crease with a loose-bristled blending brush. This will create a soft definition around the eye and help the other shadows blend more easily - not that this formula needs any help, these shadows blend like a dream!
Next I’m taking the darkest matte brown shade in the palette called Fate and packing that on the outer third of my lid, gently pushing the excess color up into the crease. This shade is very pigmented, so remember to work in light layers to prevent over application of too much product. 
Then I went in with the light pink shade called Dusk and gently blended that right at the edge of where Fate ends in the crease. This will create more dimension between shades and also make the eye shape appear bigger. Once each color was applied, I went in with a separate, empty, loose-bristled blending brush to keep the edges looking as seamless as possible.
For the rest of the lid, I’m taking the shimmery Gilded shade and packing that on with my finger. Using a finger to apply this shade rather than a brush will provide the most pigmented application possible to really make the shimmer pop against the matte shades on the outer part of the eye.
To add more dimension, I also went in with the lightest shimmer shade in the palette called Sheen and placed that right on the inner corner of my eyelid. Once again, I applied this shade with my finger first and then used a small shader brush to blend this color into the crease.
The final touch before liner and lashes is to brighten. I’m taking Lace, which is the light matte cream shade, and placing that underneath my brow bone as well as on the very inner corner of the eye. This isn’t the brightest shade against my skin tone, but it is noticeable enough to reflect a little bit of light off those areas.
For eyeliner, I first applied an eggplant colored pencil liner halfway along both my upper and lower lashes. Then I took the darker purple shade in the palette called Wicked and placed that directly on top of the pencil with a liner brush. This two-step liner method will create a softer appearance and help extend its wear time.
To finish up, I curled my lashes and added a few coats of mascara. Since this is more of an easy, everyday look I think it’s totally fine to skip the falsies and just apply a few coats of your favorite mascara. Right now I’m testing the Tarte Big Ego mascara. I wouldn’t say it’s my favorite, but it’s good enough.
Here is a quick, more condensed guide for easy reference:
To finish up the look, I added a soft, slightly shiny red lip. I love the way red lips pair with a neutral glam eye look! I also used the Trestique Concealer Crayon that I received in my May Boxycharm along with this eyeshadow palette. It’s definitely my new favorite concealer!
As simple as looks like this may seem in today’s beauty industry, it’s such a classic style that you just can’t go wrong with. It’s perfect for any occasion and the formula of this particular palette makes application a total breeze. Red is definitely my favorite lip color to pair this with, though it would look stunning with a bright pink or deep berry also!
