After a good few months of rocking a strong lip, I’ve slowly been venturing back into the world of eyeshadows. Electric blues and gold glitters still scare the bejesus out of me, but slowly but surely those soft taupe, sand and copper tones are popping up more and more in my daily make up look.
Bourjois takes me straight back to my late teens, when I first started wearing make up behind my mum’s back and would sneak into my local beauty hall to buy their rond pots with my allowance. Fifteen years later, we seem to have come full circle. Last summer they released their Nude Remix combinations, and the golden sand that I first bought all those years ago made it’s way into my collection once more (Oh the memories!). Extra-ordinaire, combined with a touch of brown courtesy of Extra-vertie, is the perfect daytime combo of a nude golden hue with an added darker shade for extra depth.
The days that I want to go for a bit more oomph, I’ll whip out the Charlotte Tilbury Eyes To Mesmerise in Mona Lisa. With this chocolate, slightly burned bronze colour, a little goes a long way, but a bit more will take you straight to intense territory. A light wash is perfectly office proof, and this cream version has a better lasting power than the Colour Chameleon Eye Pencils.
Now, which shade to chose today? What are you favourite day-to-day eyeshadows? Let me know in the comments!
Oh, and if you’re looking for something divine, look no further than this Liquides Imaginaires Scented Candle in Fortis. Spicy, aromatic and delectably eccentric, this is utter heaven captured in wax.
