These 15 Simple Eye Shadow Looks Are the Complete Opposite of Instagram Makeup

In the age of Instagram, it's easy to get intimidated and overwhelmed at the prospect of creating your own eye makeup look. It seems like every tutorial we see involves complicated blending, impeccable cat eyeliner, or fussy cut creases. While these looks are beautiful and inspiring in their own right, we usually want to take inspiration from something simpler. After all, we don't know what you're weekday mornings are like, but ours are too rushed to sit in front of the mirror perfecting our eye makeup for 15 minutes. In fact, we're lucky if we have 15 minutes to get ready in total. (Maybe it's just us, but coffee always comes first.)

But just because an eye makeup look is simple doesn't mean it has to be boring. We still crave color. That's why we combed Instagram for eye makeup looks that don't fit the norm—the looks that are easier to replicate yet just as impactful as their more complicated counterparts.
