EOTD #4: Neutral Browns for Work


Hi everyone! A quick EOTD – was waiting for transport to work this morning when I thought I might as well use the time to take a quick snap of my eye makeup! It’s quick and easy, plus I only used 1 eyeshadow palette. The palette is no longer available but the shades should be easy to dupe.

Products Used:

  • Too Faced Shadow Insurance; all over lid, crease and browbone
  • Chanel Les 4 Ombres Quadra Eye Shadow in 35 Rives; white shade to highlight brow bone, beige shade all over lids, brown shade in outer half of lids and slightly smudged along lower lashline, dark brown shade along lash lines and on outer third of lids
  • Kiko Twinkle Eye Pencil in 03 Flexous Burgundy; lined along upper lash lines and smudged out

It’s a typical neutral look that does not require too many steps, or too many items. I went easy on the rest of the face as well – just foundation, powder and blush – mostly because I woke up late and didn’t have time to bother, but I did manage to do my entire face and eye makeup in under 10 minutes. I hope you like it!

EOTD #3: Romantic Smokey Eye


Another quick EOTD. The lighting was again not quite right so the picture is more washed out than it really is and the light pink/purple transition shade could not really be seen. I love how it looks in real life though; I think it’s quite romantic and sultry and would be great for a date night.

Products Used:

  • Too Faced Shadow Insurance; all over lid, crease and browbone
  • Too Faced The Return of Sexy Palette; Naiive to highlight browbone, Divorcee all over lids, Icon in the crease as transition shade, Beautymark to run along the lashes and deepen outer third of lids
  • Essence Liquid Eyeliner, to line along upper lash line
  • Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Lash Extending Treatment Mascara

It’s quite a simple look I think, and doesn’t require too many products. Hope you’ve enjoyed this look! 🙂

EOTD #1: Festive Soft Green Look for Day Time / Work


A quick EOTD today; I didn’t have time to curl my lashes so pardon my stick straight eyelashes, and my ginormous pores. I wanted to do a green and slightly festive look that would be okay for work, since we were having team Xmas lunch, so I used green through my lid, and then blended a brown in the crease to soften the look and make it less like I was going for a night out. I quite like the look; it’s slightly festive without being overdone.

Products used:

1. ELF Eyelid Primer, all over the lid, crease and browbone
2. MAC Extra Dimension Eyeshadow in Modern Pewter, all over the lid
3. L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow in Golden Emerald, in the outer corner
4. Burberry Sheer Eye Shadow in Pale Barley, in the crease
5. Wet & Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow in Brulee, on the browbone
6. Pupa Multiplay Triple Purpose Eye Pencil in Black, top eyeline
7. Bourjois Volumizer Mascara

I should have groomed my brows, but I ran out of time! So they’re their usual unruly self. I think the combination of green and soft brown works really well; I guess because the colours occur together in nature as well?

Hope you’ve enjoyed my first EOTD! 🙂
