Covergirl Eyeshadow in Tapestry Taupe Review/Swatch

I picked this up when I was at Shoppers Drug Mart another day to return the Yes to Cucumber Facial Wipes (reviews coming soon). I had a $4 off coupon so I decided to pick this shadow up since I’ve heard many beauty gurus mention this in their videos.

According to Covergirl, these Eye Enhancers 1-Kit Shadows are “Simple, single shades with an advanced, stay-put formula. Mix and match them the way you want to create your own combos with matte, pearly or sparkly shades! They blend easily to let the natural beauty of your eyes come through.” I picked it up in Tapestry Taupe, since I am addicted to neutral shadows lately. Continue reading

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

Quick Everyday Eye

I wasn’t going to post any pictures of swatches or things like that until I get a better camera but I don’t like waiting (for anything for that matter) so I played around with my phone and it seems to be giving me pretty good pictures.

So here’s just a quick post about a simple eye look that can be done in a minute! It’s perfect for all those oh-crap-I-snoozed-too-many-times days, which translates to everyday for me.
