I absolutely love applying my make up and if i have the time i love spending ages applying it, especially my eye make up. However, there are many days though when i just want to click my fingers and have achieved a eye look that looks like it's taken a lot of time and effort - this is where my 'easy go to eye look' steps in.
Regardless of what i intend to do with my eye make up i always use Mac's Paint Pot in Painterly - it's a nude cream base that evens out the skintone and creates the perfect base for the eye make up. For the eyeshadow i switch between two products depending on what mood I'm in or how intense i want it to look. If i want a more basic natural looking eye then i go for Max-Factor Excess Shimmer in Copper* or if if i feel like a eye look that's a bit more intense and edgy looking i go for Max-Factor Excess Shimmer in Bronze* - these are cream eyeshadows but they have more of a mousse like texture/formula but they are really creamy and easy to blend out. I like blending these out using a big fluffy brush as it gives a subtle wash of colour to the lid and then i can keep adding more and blending it out until i have the look i want.
Eyeliner is my next step and this also varies alot depending on what look I'm going for. If i want a really clean look i like to apply my Maybelline Mastergraphic liner and i love to wing out my liner too - it's so easy to use. If i want something that's a bit more intense and edgy looking then i reach for my Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Zero and ill use that along my tightline and that gives it a nice smudgy kind of look.
Mascara differs depending on which i feel like using; at the moment I've rediscovered my love for Benefit They're Real Mascara - i forgot just how much i love this mascara, it makes my lashes so lovely and long. To finish it off i bright up under the eyes with my YSL Touche Eclat Radiant Touch and i also highlight along the browbone and the inner corner of my eye with the MUA Undress Your Skin Highlighter.
It may seem like a lot to do but it's not, its so quick and easy to do and it looks like you've spent alot more time on it than you actually have.
