Natural Eyeshadow Tutorial

I had a few requests for a tutorial for the eyeshadow I was wearing in my NYX Matte Lipsticks post and I’ve finally gotten around to doing it! This natural eyeshadow tutorial is pretty simple and quick and looks fabulous and appropriate for nearly any occasion.

For this look, I’ll be using shades from both my Lorac Pro Palette and Lorac Pro Palette 2. If you don’t have these palettes, don’t worry! I’ll also be describing the shades so you can try to match this look with your own products.

From the original Lorac Pro Palette, I’ll be using Cream (pale matte beige), Sable (medium-dark warm matte brown) & Taupe (medium warm matte brown). From the Lorac Pro Palette 2, I’ll be using Beige (light shimmery beige) & Nectar (matte peach).

In this photo I’m also wearing NYX Matte Lipstick in Nude, MAC Fluidline eyeliner, Make Up For Ever’s HD Foundation in 120 & Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow in Dark Brown.

I always like to start by blotting my eyelids with an oil blotting sheet and then applying my primer. Today I’m using Lorac’s Behind The Scenes eyeshadow primer.


The first shadow I’m applying is Nectar (matte peach) from the Lorac Pro Palette 2. I’m using a Sigma E40 blending brush to place this shade in and above my crease and then blending it out.


Next I’ve taken Taupe (warm medium matte brown) and I’m applying it right into my crease using a Sonia Kashuk crease brush and then gently blending it.


Still using Taupe, I’ve now switched to a MAC 219 pencil brush and I’m applying it to the outer 2/3rd’s or so of my lower lash line.


I want to add a little more dimension and darken this up just a tad so still using my pencil brush, I’m applying the tiniest amount of Sable (medium-dark warm matte brown) into the outer third of my lower lash line and also about 1/3 – 1/2 way over into my crease. Gently blend.


These last few steps aren’t very obvious in photographs so we’re going to combine them! Here I’ve taken Cream (pale matte beige) and applied it under my brow bone & on the outer 3/4th’s of my lid. Then I took Beige (light shimmery beige) and a small flat eyeshadow brush and applied it to the inner corner of my eye, extending it slightly onto my eyelid and slightly into my lower lash line. And with that, this eyeshadow is done! Now we just need some liner and mascara…


Finished look! I added mascara, liner & NYX Wonder Pencil in my waterline.

  1. This look such an elegant look for work, but maybe minues the liner for me:) I’ll try to substitute Makeup Geek Shadows for the Lorac palette. Thank you!

    1. I struggle with totally natural so my first instinct is to always throw a little wing on it! lol I’ve heard such good things about Makeup Geek’s shadows lately. What do you think of them? I might have to try a couple out.
