When it comes to eye makeup i have to admit i am pretty lazy! I tend to apply just mascara, maybe a little eyeliner if i feel really adventurous! I do however like a smokey eye when i go out in the evening but i have never bothered in the daytime.
Recently i have been i have been making myself try out different make up (see my bold lip post HERE). I bought my mum the Bobbi Brown smokey warm eye palette as one of her Christmas pressies, I chose this particular palette because every shade was so wearable. Unfortunately for my mum (not for me) she is allergic to some of the eye shadows in the palette – i think it is the glittery ones she had a reaction with, so she gave it to me!
I absolutely love the shades, they are just my colours and i think they suite my skin tone quite well. There are 6 shades, i have two daytime favorites which are The lightest shade Ivory, and a medium brown matte colour Blonde which i use on the outer corners and blend in with my amazing brush from Inglot. I use the other shades when i go out and want to create a smokey eye.
Although the palette comes with a double ended brush applicator, i use my MAC brushes and as i mentioned before my Inglot blender brush. I find this trio of brushes are perfect for any eye shadow application. I use the flat brush (Sorry the number has rubbed off) for all over light shadow, the pointed brush for the outer corners and the fluffy Inglot brush for blending.
My Favorite mascara at the moment is Maxfactor false lash effect which i find works really well on my lashes. I have also fallen back in love with my body shop lash curlers, they are very comfatable to use and make my lashes super curled!
Hope you liked my post. What are your favorite products?
