Pretty, neutral makeup looks are like wardrobe basics for your beauty routine, and this soft brown smoky eye is as easy to wear as a cozy fall sweater.

Watch Birchbox BFF Deepica demonstrate how to get the look using POP Beauty’s Bright Up Your Life Eye Shadow Palette in Naturally Bare:

  1. 1. Use a brush to sweep a light, neutral shade from your palette along your brow bone.
  2. 2. Shade your entire lid and into the crease with a medium tone shadow; try a shimmery taupe, which is flattering on any complexion.
  3. 3. Using an angled brush, concentrate a dark chocolate brown shadow along your upper lash line. Smudge it out with a clean brush.
  4. 4. Carry the same dark shadow along the bottom lashes, applying it like you would an eyeliner.
  5. 5. Define your eyes even more by using a black eyeliner pencil to tightline along the top lashes and fill in the lower waterline.
  6. 6. Finish off with a few coats of mascara on the top and bottom lashes.
