Subtle Everyday Sparkle Eyes

Wednesday 7 January 2015

Even though Christmas and New Years Eve is well and truly over, I just can't stop reaching for the shimmer and sparkles to make eyeshadow stand out that little bit more. I always find myself reaching for taupes and muted colours for an everyday wear that is pulled together and professional for work, but also gives me a that little bit of something something that represents the beauty blogger inside me trying to get out. 

I started this look as a normal every day soft taupe eye and finished it by pressing over the centre glitter from my Bourjois Rock This Khaki* Eyeshadow from the Smokey Stories Collection. 
 I love how the green hued glitter and the smokey taupes blend together to start my day off with a little bit of a shimmy. 

Here's the full list of what I'm wearing:

Foundation: Nars Sheer Glow - Siberia
