The Lazy Eye Combination

So as summer is upon us and also the semester is coming to an end (I can't believe there actually is one), I have been kind of behind with fancy makeup. I get very little sleep at the moment and seriously, if there's anything I'm not in the mood for, it's getting up in the middle of the night just for the sake of blending and contouring. I've gotten back to the basics again, I only do what I need to make me feel comfortable and ready to go. This little (all inclusive) routine takes me 10 minutes in the morning which I happily invest because I actually have been very happy with the results.

I have also made a few purchases amongst my new favorite eyeshadow, Maybelline Color Tattoo in the color On and On Bronze (post on that coming soon). This in combination with my new mascara, L'Oréal Telescopic (which is BEYOND amazing!) have made me skip eyeliner completely. I find that this is quite an achievement since I haven't left the house without eyeliner on for... years?

This is the pretty simple combo I came up with:

I used my finger to put Maybelline Color Tattoo eyeshadow all over the lid and then used a synthetic brush to blend out the edges. After that, I curled my lashes and applied two coats of mascara.

Yes I do wear contacts :)
What else I've been wearing on my face:
Bebe Tinted Moisturizer
Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer
Astor Anti Shine Powder
Manhattan blush in Fresh Peach
Maybelline Moisture Extreme in Pinky Beige

Please excuse the rambling in this post, I haven't blogged for ages (at least that's how it feels like), but I will try to post more often very soon!

  1. I like this natural yet sparkly look ,very nice

    1. Thank you! Plus it can be done in no time at all :) x

  2. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who's lazy with this cream shadow :P I just can't find an eyeshadow that looks good with it anyway

    1. Oh you're definitely not :) I agree! It looks already lovely on its own, so why bother with finding an eye shadow that goes with it? :) x

  3. I love your eye colour :)
