How To: Toasted Marshmallow Eyes

I love the tasty treats and traditions of autumn, like hot cocoa with marshmallows on a chilly night or s'mores by the fire. It probably doesn't help that I have a Marshmallow Fireside candle burning as I type this. Combined with that inspiration and the warm brown of the Naked Palette, I decided to create a basic, neutral, wearable eye look I call Toasted Marshmallow Eyes.

 Y O U ' L L  N E E D:

  • Naked Palette
  • Fluffy crease brush
  • Fluffy blending brush 
  • Flat shader brush
  • Pencil brush
  • eyeliner, mascara, lip gloss

(the shadows are labeled on where to place each shadow) 

M E T H O D:

Pat Naked all over lid with the flat brush. By patting the shadow, you won't have fall out all over your face. You can use your finger to pat on your lid. For the WNW palette, pat LID shade all over lid with flat brush.

Pat Buck into the outer corner of the eye with the flat shader brush. Using the fluffy brush, sweep Buck right above the crease. For WNW, sweep the CREASE shade into the crease with a fluffy brush.

Pat Hustle into the outer corner and then blend into the crease with the fluffy brush. For WNW, add a drop of water to your shadow to the CREASE shade to make the shadow darker/more pigmented. Pat into outer corner and blend into crease with fluffy brush.

Using the Pencil brush, sweep Virgin into the inner corners and under the brow to highlight and to give us the marshmallow color. Pat Virgin in the middle of the lid to open the eye. For WNW, take the LID shade and sweep it into the inner corners and under the brow for highlight. You can also pat the LID shade into the middle of the eyes to open up the eye.

Additional Steps:
  • Use the pencil brush and sweep Buck and then Hustle under the bottom lashes (WNW CREASE shade).
  • Line lashes, water and tightline with brown liner. 
  • Add mascara and finish with lip gloss. I used Revlon Lip Butters in Creme Brulee, but the lip gloss I received in my Ipsy bag would work too!
I hope you try this--it looks so much better in person!

  11. Elle,
    I COMPLETELY understand about email/commenting so no worries!
    BTW great post, beautiful makeup tutorial!

  12. Thanks so much for commenting over on our blog! I absolutely love yours! :) Glad we are following each other! :) I thought I should clarify on my brush cleaner recipe that it in no way takes the place of a real washing but it is super helpful for switching colors on blush & eyeshadow brushes :)

  13. OMG! Absolutely gorgeous, Elle. I'm bookmarking this.

  14. Looks so good Elle! Now I want a S'more! HAHAHAHA

  15. What a creative idea, and I love how it turned out! I think I need that Naked palette.

  35. Love it! This is one of my favorite scents and I think I would love a look based off it!

  36. I've never tried the Naked palettes, but I've obviously heard rave reviews! I actually found a cheap L.A. eyeshadow palette that creates a similar look. I love the warm browns and shimmer!

  37. Thank you for following my blog! Just read through your posts, I like your blog!
    You've got a new follower ;)


  38. My comment is somewhat different from the others. I love getting my look for less and you had mentioned using the Wet and Wild Walking on Eggshells, sadly you didn't include a tutorial with that product as well. I was a little confused by what you did say "Use same brushes, but use shadows wet and dry" Could you please explain that in more detail and what steps would you take using that palette to get the same look as the Naked Palette. Thank you for your inspiration!

  39. SCOTTIES--I incorrectly assumed the WNW shadows would be easy to figure out since they are labeled on where to put them. Regardless, I have updated this post. Thanks for pointing that out and let me know if further questions (if you ever stop by again!).
