three step eyes

my daily eye makeup routine consists of three easy steps. it's quick, easy, and the perfect amount of eye makeup for the day-to-day. and, if you need to take this look from day to night, all you need to do it freshen up the eyeliner and add a little shadow to your lid. perfect.

1. start with these three items: mascara, eyeliner, and a small angled brush
mascara: CoverGirl professional super thick lash
eyeliner: Mark no place to run eyeliner
brush: e.l.f. (Target) small angled brush

2. gently swipe your eyeliner just above your eyelashes, creating a visible line.

3. using your angled brush, gently smudge the line. this makes for a more natural eyeliner look.

4. once you have your eyeliner smudged, you're ready for mascara.

5. apply mascara to top and bottom lashes. i use two coats of mascara but do not use an eyelash curler.

6. once your mascara is on, you're finished and ready to go!


  1. Similar to my daily routine. I love now quick and easy it is.

  2. I love how natural your makeup looks. Going to try out the three step eyes today :)

  3. i need to experiment more with eyeliner...
    i like how yours looks so soft!

    also, you have LONG and BEAUTIOUS eyelashes,
    the rest of us might need a curler :) {obsessed with mine}

  4. Your lashes are amazing. Mine are little sticks and I HAVE to curl them or I look dead.

  5. I love how quick and easy it is. I really need to get a angled brush.

  6. Beautiful! Aaaand your eyelashes are amazing.

  7. You've got some long eyelashes girl! It's probably just me, but I have to wear eyeshadow otherwise I think I look funny. Your eyes always look so great without any though!

  8. I don't use eye shadow either!!! :)I love this!!

  9. I need to try this! I love a great natural look, but haven't mastered one yet. Thanks for the tips!

  10. Wow! Your lashes are SO LONG!!!! Lucky!

  11. good tip! I'm going to try this, I always mess up my eyeliner...among other things lol

  12. I am looking for a new mascara and this one looks great. Thanks for this post. xx. McKenna Lou

  13. I love your long lashes, I have to use a curler to look like I have any length or curl, but I might have to check out that mascara.

  14. I love quick makeup looks? Do you use any foundation or eye shadow primer on your lids?

    1. nothing on my lids, but i have a list of all the products i currently use here:

  17. What color is the nail polish you have on in this post?

  18. I'd love a tutorial on what you do for face-makeup every day. Or maybe you've already posted something like that? I'm jealous of your long eyelashes!

  19. Have you tried tightlining your top lashes? It's kinda life-changing. Instead of slapping on a ton of eye makeup, I now usually use a light shimmery shadow, tightline, then do a teeny thin cat-eye line over that before mascara. Amaze.

  20. You're so beautiful! And your blog is amazing too.
    I'm now following you thourgh Bloglovin & GFC!
