THE MAYBELLINE EYE

I recently picked up the Maybelline The Nudes palette, and it sparked an inspiration to use some more of my Maybelline favourites once again. The brand offers a lot of high quality products, I created this entire eye look using a few of my favourites. 

The look began with Barely Branded Color Tattoo, one of my all time staples. These things really help to make shadows last for a good few hours, even on my oily lids. This shade is great for any neutral look. Honestly, no other primer necessary even though I wore this for a 9 hour day at work! On the top lid I used 3 colours from The Nudes palette – a pale shimmery shade all over and a combination of the two lightest matte shades in my crease. Blending is key with these shadows and I found I had to build up the shimmery shade quite a bit, but I was really pleased with the result. For a bit of fun, I decided to use the darkest shade from the Purple Icon quad along the lower lash line, bringing it quite far down and smudging it out. I often overlook this little quad, but it is nice to use from time to time and I think the shades compliment my eye colour wonderfully. But purple seems to be a great colour for just about all eyes!

To amp up the look, I used my go-to Master Precise Liquid Liner to create a wing on the outer portion of my eye. I think a wing can really bring a whole look together to create more drama, even if its very simple like what I have here. Lastly, several coats of mascara is always key for me, and I absolutely love The Falsies as it creates long, voluminous lashes in a few swipes! I love using it on both my top and bottom lashes to make my eyes look bigger.

Overall, I was really happy with how this look came out, and got a chance to revisit some old favourites as well as play around with a new staple in my everyday routine!
