I just love a smoky eye. We all have our favourite shades and tones and for me, it’s warm browns, gold and nude shades, while some prefer cooler black and grey eyeshadows.
At the moment I’m using a Body Shop eye quad which has a great deep brown base, a warm copper then a perfect highlighting shimmer, and at just $29.95 it’s a great buy.
But there are so many others out there on my shopping list right now, including the brand new release from Maybelline – The Nudes shadow palette, see below left. Looks to have a good mix of matte and shimmer shadows, plus an all-important black for lining.
The Smashbox colours, bottom left, also look perfect, while the Too Faced and Urban Decay Naked palettes are classics. I have wanted this UD palette since it was first used on me by a makeup artist, forever ago!
Now that the brand is finally available on Australian shores (stocked at Mecca), I’ve got no excuse!
