eyeshadow for everyday with mark. on the dot neutral

mark. on the dot neutral eyeshadow

so, it turns out that being a beauty junkie does not translate to being a makeup artist – especially when it comes it eyeshadow.

taking an artistry class has been on my bucket list for the longest, so imagine my delight when i got to sit for a lesson with rajan tolomei. he’s a master of his trade and he walked us through everything from contouring (sharp lines! do not be afraid!) to a killer lash technique. (use your mascara brush like a tiny hammer and repeatedly press it into your lashes for major drama and lift. on the bottoms, it’s ok to smudge the brush right on your lash line for a “dirty” finish).

for eyes, he demonstrated a neutral smoky eyeshadow look that i am newly obsessed with. i have been recreating it with ease using my longtime-favorite palette from mark. it has every shade you could ever need – and trust me, you will use all of them.

the formulas are pigmented and shimmery metallic with stunning champagnes, subtle lavenders, and pretty taupes – a combination sure to flatter every single eye color. regrettably, my lids are oily and everything creases on me. with these, there’s no fallout, no fading, and i find that the pigment sticks beautifully, lasting all day when i lay them down over top of my favorite primer.

fun tip: i love to sub traditional black for the gorgeous aubergine that’s in the middle of the far-right column. it’s softer and unexpected, plus a big complement to hazel eyes like mine.

aside from being pocket friendly at $16, this palette is easy to pack and a dream to travel with thanks to its compact size. if you pull the trigger on this one, i’m predicting that you will use it every single day.

    That class with Rajan sounds amazing – and so does this palette! I’ve never tried anything from Mark before, but this is going straight on my list. Thanks Lara!
