My daily eye make-up

February 23, 2017Hels

Eye make-up has always been my favourite, as soon as I was allowed to wear make-up I plastered on mascara, eye shadow and extremely messy and uneven liquid eyeliner. As I got older I found that for me, less was definitely more, and I think that now I’ve got my eye make-up look sorted – yay! So I thought I’d share my daily look with you.

Urban Decay Naked3

So, I know this palette has been reviewed time and time again, buuuut this is my first beauty post and I love it, so forgive me!

Retailing at £39.50, the Naked palettes aren’t the cheapest, but in my opinion they are worth every penny. I wasn’t sure which palette to choose as they all looked so lovely, but my friend and fellow blogger, Kaylee, recommended Naked3 for me. Wise, wise words.

I absolutely love the shades in this palette. I’ve mostly been using ‘Liar’ and ‘Buzz’ as I prefer having a little bit of a shimmer, and have braved ‘Darkside’ and ‘Darkheart’ when I’ve wanted a more striking look.

I prefer the shimmer shades over the matte, but often mix them – I love using ‘Limit’ and ‘Liar’ together. The pigmentation is amazing, and I’ve found they last a lot longer than any other I’ve tried, apply easily and blend beautifully. The double ended brush is also brilliant and makes application and blending so simple.

Benefit they’re real! push-up liner

Next up is eyeliner. As I said before, I was always a liquid eyeliner girl, but I got fed up of waiting for it to dry and I would inevitably end up with smudges and one eye that was infinitely better than the other. So I thought I’d try Benefit’s ‘they’re real! push-up liner’ and I was not disappointed.

It has a lovely velvety feel to it, and glides on really smoothly. It was easy to get really close to my lash line which definitely made my eyes look bigger, plus I didn’t have to wait for it to dry! It lasts really well throughout the day and I love that I don’t have to sharpen it, nor does it turn gloopy!

MAC False Lashes Extreme Black

Finally it’s my mascara. I’ve gone through so many mascaras I can’t even begin to count, but I really love this MAC one.

I think this definitely enhances and lengthens my lashes, and separates them really well. It stays on, although I do sometimes find that by the end of the day it’s smudged a little under my eyes, but I’m yet to find a mascara that doesn’t do that!

I love trying out new eye make-up, what are your favourites?
