Newcomers to the (Ef)Face: Check These Out!

the Nude Eye

I believe I have finally mastered (measured only by my own expectations) the Nude Eye (aka: How to Wear Makeup Without it Looking Like You are Wearing Makeup 101).

-Sparkly beige all over the lid and just above it.
-Grey applied with an angled brush to the outer corner and blended up into the crease (stop the grey about halfway across).
-White at the inner corners, under the eyebrows, and at the center of the lid.
-Brown shadow under the eyes close to the outer half of the lashline.
-Line with black SHADOW (not liner) using a liner brush.  Only line the outer corners.

For the rest of the face:
-Make sure you have already applied foundation/concealer before you do the eyes. 
-Use a light pink blush very subtley on the apples of your cheeks, sweeping it up to your temples.  Dab a little blush just above your eyebrows, as well.  (I'm a HUGE fan of blush: without it, I would look like a ghost.)
-Use a tinted lip balm on your lips.

I'm not the real makeup expert: my gal, Kelsey is!  Check out the makeover she gave me here.  It's a bit more dynamic and fun than this tutorial I'm subjecting you to!

Also: since this IS a style blog, if you want the full effect of the outfit I wore that day, here you go:
