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.

What Nyx says: A radiant eye liner that also doubles as an eye shadow. Made with a blend of mineral oil and powder, our creamy Jumbo Eye Pencils glide on effortlessly—no pulling, tugging or fading—and come in a rainbow of vivid hues. Some call her chubby. We say voluptuous.

Eye Pencils

Eye pencils are great in summer as an extra base for your eyeshadow or in order to get more vibrance out of your eyeshadows. My latest addition are the ones from NYX, and I particularly like the Milk one, as it can be used as a nice highlight in the inner corner of the eye as well. I would usually would apply a bit of colour on the lid and then smudge it with my fingers. You have to work quickly as they tend to set fast. Especially the ones from Catrice are very long-lasting and you might need a waterproof make up remover to get them off again.

NYX Blush in #11 Taupe

NikkiTutorials compares her favorite blusher NYX Taupe with MAC Taupe. She uses this blush for contouring, which is why I decided to give it a go as well. Absolutely love it, especially during winter when I am extra pale.

NYX Lipliner in (from top to bottom) #817 Hot Red, #836 Bloom, #838 Purple Rain and #54 Pale Pink

Interesting comparison of NYX Lipliners with the ones by Mac at Crueltyfree Kit.
