Nightingale Eyeshadow Palette

I like this palette. I did a review on the palette already so you can check that out if you would like to see my thoughts. For this Nightingale look, I only used 3 eyeshadows plus the liquid eyeshadow by Stila Cosmetics.

Most of the time I am all for simple looks. I have two kids so I usually can’t sit down that long to do my makeup. So simple looks are my thing and this Nightingale look is just that.

Brushes

For this Nightingale look, I only used 2 brushes. Yes, that is correct. Only 2 brushes. This look is so simple you don’t need too many tools. Also, I really did not feel like cleaning to many brushes if I’m being honest.

The brushes I used was a crease brush I had purchased from Sears. It is their number 07 brush. The next brush was for my lower lash line and I used the Mikasa E310 pencil brush.

Now that we know everything we need. Grab your eyeshadow and brushes and let’s get started on this tutorial.

Picture Tutorial

Step 1

First we are starting with the shade Hide & Seek. I placed this in my crease and also on my lower lash line. In the picture I don’t show my lower lash line because I had done it after my face makeup.

Step 2

Second, we are using the shade After Midnight and I also place that into my crease. Don’t completely cover up the first shade. Apply it just a little beneath it.

Also, I apply this to my lower lash line as well. Just to the outer corner NOT bringing it all the way to my inner corner. I did this with a very light hand I did not want to draw too much attention to the lower lash line.

Step 3

The third step is the Stila Cosmetics Shimmer and Glow liquid eyeshadow. I love these and this shade. For this look, I used the shade Boheme which is a beautiful lilac. The lilac pairs well with the grey. I did not cut the crease beforehand but you can if you’d like. Apply this to your inner 3rd of your eye.

Step 4

The fourth step was adding a little more depth to the outer corner. Using the shade All Nighter and I applied it to the outer corner with a very light hand. This shade is like a black brown and you can’t really tell. To me, it still looks grey and that’s what I wanted.

Step 5

Now I really wanted to open up the eye and brighten it up a bit. Adding a white or nude eyeliner will help with this so I add the M.A.C Eye Kohl in Fascinating. This eyeliner did not last on my eyes at all. It had disappeared in no time. 

You can also add your mascara of choice at this time. I used the L’Oreal Telescopic Mascara in Blackest Black. Just use any mascara to get your lashes black to match and blend better with the false lashes.

If you are looking for a good mascara for the days you don’t wear false lashes. I really like the Milk Makeup Kush High Volume Mascara. You can click HERE to see my review.

Step 6

The last step is to pop on some false lashes if you would like. I used the Ardell Wispies and I really liked the outcome. If you had read my Boxycharm review (if you haven’t you can click HERE) I said I had trouble with false lashes with a small band. Well I have been practicing and I have gotten better and I am so happy I did because these lashes looked great.

If you aren’t good at something when it comes to your makeup don’t stress about it just continue to practice. I am still learning new things all the time and I practice at the things I need to work on all the time. The only way to get better is if you keep on doing it.
