Now of course this is going to take more than 10 minutes the first several times you try this unless you're a makeup artist. I practice practice practice even if I'm not going anywhere. I can pull this look together in about 10 minutes with 5 or so minutes on the foundation. The trick to making it quick is using the same sorts of colors on your eyes, then you don't have to deal with much blending.
This tute will be uncomplicated because the look is based on simplicity to get makeup on and get you out the door.
What you'll need:
3 shades of a similiar color
1 shade close to your skin tone
Eyeliner and Mascara
Eye primer (I use dollar store concealer)
Fluffy done brush, flat angled brush


For best results with your colors add a primer to your eyes first. Add your lightest color above your lid all over and a little bit near your tear duct. Bring it under your eye just a little.


Add your middle shade on your lid and blend upwards into the lighter color making sure that you don't wipe out too much of the light shade. Use the flat brush to apply it under your eye fading it into the light near your tear duct and to the outer corner of your eye.


Next put the darkest shade on the outer corner of your eye and blend inward a little. Fade the darkest color into the middle shade on your lower lid.


Under your brow put the skin tone shade to highlight the eye and blend out any harsh lines to make it fade up to your brow.


Line your eyes! Always! I tightline my upper lashes, line my waterline and then bring the liner halfway in on both lids. Add a couple of coats of mascara and lipstick then get ready for the compliments to start rolling in!


Hope you like it!

It's part of a HUGE sampler from Sephora that PinkyK bought me for Christmas this year. I LOVE it! I've got so many colors to choose from and there are at least 6 shades of each color!

Baww, you're so cute.

& thanks for the tute!  As a makeup dummy, I would not have guessed that 3 shades of a color were necessary for a great monochromatic look.

I've been teaching myself from youtube videos and just playing around. So far, I get the most compliments with a 3 shade monochromatic look, but I'll do just one shade. Of course I love my rainbow eyes and I usually do purple to match my hair.

What a wonderful thing to hear! I'm so flattered! I think the practice was worth it too. I feel so good about myself and I get tons of compliments when I go out. It's not that I'm behind a disguise with it, but looking like a peacock makes me feel like myself!  Cheesy
