Beauty Favourites 2015: Eyes

Long time staples in my make up routine are the mascaras by Essence. They are really affordable but great quality. This year I loved the maximum definition volume mascara as a base and then topped it with the i love extreme crazy volume mascara, as you can see in some of my eye looks from this year below.

My favourite eyebrow products this year were by Gosh, namely the Eye Brow Pencil in Grey Brown and Defining Brow Gel Clear. Sometimes I mix it up and go back to brow powder, but most mornings I was happy to have my pencil at hand as it was way quicker.

Two more staples in my makeup routine are the NYX’s Wonder Pencil in WP01 Light, which works great on the waterline to make your eyes look slightly bigger and more awake, and the Too Faced Shadow Insurance Primer to make eyeshadows stay on longer.

My favourite eyeliners are still Zoeva’s Graphic Eyes. A great colour selection, very smooth in application yet it stays in place all day. I purchased another colour this year called Opulence, a wonderful red liner. My go-to black eyeliner however is the Liquid Eyeliner by Essence.

I finally bought myself the Sleek – Oh So Special palette that I have been eyeing for ages and have not regretted it a bit. Everyday colours with great pigmentation.

7 Shades of Brown… Shimmery Eyeshadows

7shadesofbrown_shimmeryeyshadow_02

Steffi from Smoke & Diamonds started a blog series called 7 shades of… where bloggers present 7 shades of one colour in one category, e.g. eyeshadow, lipstick, nail polish and so on. Until the 7th October you still have time to participate in the current round where it is all about the colour brown. You can share your posts via InLinkz on her blog. I’ve linked my previous posts for Green, Pink and Purple and Blue below. I previously posted about my 7 shades of brown cheek products and matte brown eyeshadows.

All the eyeshadows below have great quality. Throughout they are very buttery and smooth, which makes them easy to apply. I don’t use the Catrice eyeshadow too often, but when I swatched it I remembered how nice it is. Sleek’s James Brown is another colour that doesn’t get enough love, because it is soo beautiful, yet neglected.

  1. Artdeco – Eyeshadow in Pearl 013
  2. Illamasqua – Powder Eyeshadow in Tango
  3. Catrice – The Sydney Collection: Town Hall
  4. Too Faced – Single Eyeshadow in Dirt Bag
  5. Too Faced –Eye Love Eye Shadow Collection in Ever After
  6. Sleek – Respect: James Brown
  7. Sleek – Au Natural in Mineral Earth

I love brown matte eyeshadows, one of my favourite ones is definitely the Artdeco one from the Dita van Teese Classics and Art Couture Collection. I actually have several of the eyeshadows from the limited editions and they are all amazing! Like a Virgin from Too Faced is such a buttery lovely colour, very similar to the P2 one but the quality is soo much better. The MUA palette is very affordable and has a selection of matte eyeshadows with good quality for the price point.

  1. P2 – Matte dream eyeshadow in 180 taupe elegance
  2. Artdeco – Dita van Teese Classics and Art Couture in 520 Brunesque
  3. Too Faced – Eye Love Eye Shadow Collection in Like Virgin
  4. Can you believe it? I did all the swatches and have no idea which eyeshadow I used here. Sorry!
  5. Sleek – Au Natural in Bark
  6. MUA Makeup Academy Professional – Ever After Matte Palette in Truffle
  7. Too Faced – Glamour to Go: Dream Edition Brown matte eyeshadow

7 Shades of Brown… Cheek Products

You might wonder about the selection below, as it includes an eyeshadow and a blush, but I use both of them for my cheeks to contour, therefore I thought this is totally appropriate. 🙂 Illamasqua, Barry M and Makeup Revolution are matte products that I really only use for contouring. Although the Physician’s Formula product is technically a bronzer, I do use it for contouring as well. The other two bronzers I only wear occassionally as I don’t do much bronzing, but they are lovely shades for that purpose!

  1. Sleek – Blush in Antique
  2. Illamasqua – Cream Pigment in Hollow
  3. Makeup Revolution – Mono Eyeshadow in Mocha Love
  4. Barry M – Chisel Cheeks in Medium Brown
  5. Physician’s Formula – Bronze Organics for Fair Skin
  6. 17 – Instant Glow in Pink Bronze Bronzing Rocks
  7. Too Faced – Glamour to Go: Dream Edition Bronzer

EOTD – 18.05.2015 Springtime Grunge

eotd 18.04.2015 eotd 18.04.2015

When I started my eye makeup today I realised that it actually suits the Springtime Grunge series Isadonna initiated on her blog. Bright spring colours combined with dark and blended out shadows on both lash lines and some smudgy mascara. To me that is definitely a springtime version of a Grunge look. I combined it with neutral lips.

This makeup is inspired by a couple of looks i have recently seen on Instagram. I love this light colour with some bold liner and smudgy mascara.

I love these loose eyeshadows by P2. They were part of a Limited edition in 2011.

I added this look to Talasia’s Pigmentomania series, where she and other beauty bloggers share their eye looks created with pigments and loose eyeshadows.
