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.

Whats your go to eye look?

  1. The Max Factor cream shadow is beautiful. I have the MUA highlighter & never thought to use it under my brow bone. Great idea
