Simple Brown Smokey Eyes

Friday, 2 January 2015

One thing I'm hoping to do in 2015 is push myself out of my comfort zone and wear my make up in different ways. I was kindly sent two brand new shades of the Colour Edition Eyeshadow* by the lovely team at Bourjois* just before Christmas, and hadn't got around to using them in the mad panic of travelling back to Wales and manically wrapping presents for family. I think these two shades are out early 2015 and I'm so in love with how gorgeous they are - especially considering how cheap they are - they're a bargain at £6.99 each. 

When creating this look, I knew I wanted to try some different products and when hunting around in my 'To Blog About' make up drawers I came across the shadows and boy am I glad I gave them a chance. I love how creamy and easy to blend these products are. The shadows glide on like a dream, giving the eyes a luxurious appearance that certainly gives higher end shadows a run for their money. 

Here's the list of everything I'm wearing If you'd like to try this look out at home.

Foundation: Nars Sheer Glow - Siberia
Concealer: Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer - Chantilly
Contour: NYX Blusher - Taupe
Eyebrows: Anastasia Beverly Hills DipBrow Pomade - Medium Brown
Eyeshadow: (Base) Bourjois Colour Edition Eyeshadow - Flocon D'or*
Eyeshadow: (Lid) Bourjois Colour Edition Eyeshadow - Marron Givre*
Eyeshadow: (Smoke) YSL Tuxedo Travel Palette - Black Shadow*
Eyeliner: Maybelline Big Eyes Liner - Black
Eyelashes: Total Minks - Smouldering Minks Lashes*
Lips: Bourjois Colour Boost Lip Crayon - Plum Russian*
