Want to be almost neutral but still want dreamy eyes? Choose Ivory and Navy blue eye shadows. Start with applying a concealer as for this one you really need a clear, smooth eyelid area. Now follow the steps above and below and finish off the look with loads of mascara.

Mixing pink and yellow shadow could be a recipe for looking like a little over the board, but if you apply these shades carefully, these can do wonders for your eyes! But don’t apply these at night, these are typical daytime shades.
