Eye Of The Day Vol. 1

So it should probably be Eye of The Week really. I have been wearing the same make up on my eyes for a while and I just love how easy it is and how it turns out so pretty! (Well I think… LOL!)

(Sorry for the under eye circles… totally in need of a good under eye concealer… any suggestions?!)

My whole entire make up routine in the morning takes around 7-8 minutes, from primer to lipstick. I feel like that’s a pretty quick routine… which is important for me since I always sleep in and still want to get to class on time. I am so glad i picked up the Urban Decay Naked2 Palette last month. It’s been making it effortless to create any neutral eye looks that are appropriate for class! There are certain shades that I gravitate towards more, and those are the ones I am featuring in today’s EOTD. I actually took these pictures after 7 hours of wear.

So here’s my EOTD
– Urban Decay Primer Potion (Original) — all over lid
– Snakebite from Urban Decay Naked2 (deep gold-toned bronze) — outer 1/3 of lid
– Suspect from Urban Decay Naked2 (shimmery light bronze) — inner 2/3 of lid
– MAC Fluidline in Blitz & Glitz (Black with gold shimmer)
– Clinique High Impact Mascara in Black

TheBalm Shady Lady Vol. 2 + Pinterest

I wasn’t huge on eyeshadow palettes or colourful shadows until pearlessence showed me theBalm Shady Lady Vol. 2. I was so in love with it that I decided I will get one for myself. I’m so thankful for Black Friday sales and a boyfriend who was in the States at the time, I was able to take advantage of the 30% off and got the Shady Lady Vol. 2 palette and the Nude ‘tude palette. Here’s some quick swatches for the Shady Lady Vol. 2 palette. Swatches for Nude ‘tude will be up soon!

I haven’t actually tried out the shadows so I cannot speak for its lasting powder and such. But upon swatching, they feel very soft and smooth, and the colour payoff is excellent for the darker colours and pretty good for the lighter shades.

The palette comes with 9 different shadows, they are all shimmery, some more than others (especially “Caught in the act Courtney”), and 5 of them can be used as liner as well.

See the swatches after the jump!
