Neutral Daytime Look

This is a nice neutral look for wearing during the day. 

You want to choose shades similar to skin tone so there will be a lot of variance from one person to the next. If you're ultra fair, feel free to use my suggestions. You need three shades one two shades darker than your skin tone, the next one shade darker, and the final one close to your skin tone.

Use the darkest shade in the corner and crease of the eye sweeping inwards.  Go back over that with your medium shade and blend the two. Sweep the medium shade along the rest of the lower lid. Use your lightest shade just beneath the brow and in the inside corner of the eye. Blending this into the medium shade.

Use a brown eyeliner for a softer look. Only line three quarters of the way in on both lids. Finish off with mascara.

Use a light peach or pink on the cheeks. For your lips use any shade ranging from soft pink to nude.
