A Simple Neutral Eyeshadow Tutorial With Budget Eyeshadows !

Did any of you women like Dhoom 3??  I mean hello..Dhoom is about eyecandy! Hrithik Roshan looking super hot walking down the street and all that jazz. I love you Aamir, you are a great actor and all but when i see a guy shirtless on screen tap dancing with some firang women, i need him to look like a greek god ok, no offense!  That apart, the first hour of the movie bored the life out of me and all i could think about was doing this, super simple eyeshadow tutorial that has been requested since i pretty much started this blog . On special request- this contains only budget products!

What I Used:

1. Maybelline Diamond Glow eyeshadow Quad in Copper Brown : I used this for the heck of it honestly, i dont like these quads at all they have really really poor pigmentation – but since this is a very subdued tutorial i thought i can get by

2. Matte Brown Eyeshadow: I swear by Mac Folie as a crease color. Its amazing- but any matte brown would do

3. 2 brushes: A flat shader brush from vega professional, and a rounded small blending brush

Peaches & Blush9

Step 1: Sweep the light beigey gold color (3rd from left) all over your eyelid

Step 2: Use the peachy shade (second from left) right in the centre

Step 3: With a matte brown eyeshadow make a boomerang like shape on the outer corner. When your open your eye it should look like this- with the matte brown extending towards lower lashline

Step 4: Get your blending brush out and blend blend blend ! Blend like a pro!


Step 5: Add liner to the upper and lower lash line, mascara and done !

This is a nice, simple look for like a fancy work meeting, or even just a nice day time look with your friends ! Enjoy!

PS: What i did notice in Dhoom 3 is how pretty Katrina’s eyes looked. She had zero eyeshadow on most of the film- just the perfect, softly smudged kohl look. Im going to try and nail that and put up a tutorial on that as well!

It just looks so neat and easy. ^_^

I have this quad. Don’t like it that much. Pigmentation is not so good. But I do use the second colour a lot. It looks nice on me.
Nice tutorial. I mostly go for not so colourful subdued eye makeup and this looks very muchy type.
And soft smudged kohl looks really nice. It gives that kind of mild sultry look(dont know myself what I mean :p)

This one looks super simple and something one can do in a hurry too. And it will work for a lote of occasions. Looking forward to the smughed kohl look :)

What a gorgeous look! This is what I usually do whenever I’m in a hurry!

All your tutorials end up looking the same

True that ! I cant be bothered with complicated eye makeup looks using 6 eyeshadows


Zahra December 24, 2013 at 12:35 pm

Nice and neat :)

Haven’t checked out Katrina’s look in Dhoom 3 yet, but there’s a Lisa Eldridge tutorial that had me smudging kohl like a pro within a couple of attempts!! If a klutz like me can do it in two tries, you’re definitely gonna nail it in one, Mehak!! :-D Check for her tutorial on Kristen Stewart’s eye makeup :)

As always, great work with the blog! Merry Christmas and a rocking 2014 to you and P&B!

This is so simple and easy yet looks gorgeous…… I will be definitely going to try this. I usually not do any eye makeup only stay with kohl and eyeliner when I am in hurry but I think from now I will try to do this eye look. It is perfect for those moments when you can’t be late.

This is very beautiful!

Love this! You’ve explained it so well! Will try this for the next event!

I need to now look on your site for a tutorial on how to apply liner on your bottom lash line. I used to apply it to my bottom waterline thinking that was my lash line…and then I found out the truth and discovered the bottom lash line is just as hard as the top one!
