Guest Post: Megan's Everyday Eye Look!

Today's Lovely Guest:

 Hey lovelies, I'm pretty sure you guys don't know me but I'm, Meg from Beauty on a College Budget. I'm here to let you guys on a little secret. Want to look like you put a lot of effort into your eye makeup with none of the effort? It's so easy it'll blow your mind. Apply some sort of a shimmery eyeshadow to just the lid of your eye, closely line the top lashes with black liner, add mascara and voila fancy eye makeup in no time. Sounds too easy doesn't it? I promise it looks awesome every time!

So you start out your face makeup as your usual routine. No special advice for that. You of course should always prime your eyes first. I used Elf's Eyelid Primer ($1).

Step 1- Apply a light shimmery eyeshadow to just your lids. In this look I applied MUA Pearl shadow in shade 4 (£1 for our European friends.) to just my lids.

Step 2- Closely line your top lashes with black eyeliner. I used Elf's waterproof Eyeliner Pen ($1)

Step 3- Curl your lashes and add mascara. I used Urban Decay's Curling Mascara mini ($10)
Bam! You have a super cute eye look that always look great!

In the picture below are a few different palettes you could pick a shimmery eyeshadow from. If there's a smiley face on or under an eyeshadow those are the shades I'd advise using for this look. I've included some palettes that hopefully everyone can get their hands on. Even for those ladies across the pond!

The palettes above are as follows: MUA palette, Heaven and Earth sells for around £4. Kat Von D Saint palette that sells around $36. UrbanDecay NAKED sells around $50. MUA single eyeshadow Pearl Finish shade 4 (used in this tutorial.)

So now you ladies know my secret put it to good use! I use this all the time, and love it!
