Quick Eye Makeup Look

I've been testing out my new Maybelline Color Tattoo's the last couple of days and here is a quick look that I created using just the color tattoo in Tough as Taupe as well as one eyeshadow palette - the Urban Decay Naked2 palette. 

I started out by applying the Maybelline Color Tattoo cream eyeshadow in Tough as Taupe all over the lid using my fingers - you can use a brush but I find it is easier to use my finger.  I then blend out the cream shadow with my finger blending upwards into the crease but not higher than that.  I then go to my UD Naked2 and place the color Pistol on top of the cream shadow with a fluffy blending brush (Sigma or MAC 217) and then blend out the edges so there are no harsh lines.  I then wipe that brush off and use a matte mid-tone brown called Tease and blend that into the crease.  Then take the color Bootycall and place that under the brow bone with a flat shadow brush and blend down into Tease.  Then take just the slightest bit of the matte black in the palette called Blackout and place that just into the outer corner of your eyelid and blend inwards.  Then take a little Verve on a small detailing brush and place that into the inner corner of your eye to look more awake and bright.  Line the inner waterline with a black or brown Kohl liner.  I again used Blackout with a small angled brush and lined my upper lash line with this shadow.  I used Hustle to line my bottom lash line with the same angled brush (wiped off).  Use 2 coats of your favorite mascara and your done!!  This look took me a couple of minutes to do - Easy for all of you busy mom's with very little time to get ready.
