Yes, it’s October. However, here in Britain, the Winter period basically stretches from the end of August to the end of May… Oh how I wish I was exaggerating *sad face*. So since we are well and truly in the throws of the dark days and frosty nights, it’s time to bring back the smokey, glam eyes from their Summer holiday and embrace the darker colour combos.
I always tend to rock a more exaggerated eye this time of year as the pretty peaches and pastels have been retired till next Spring and party season is just round the corner! I’m extremely fickle when it comes to getting ready – either I’m totally into it and can’t wait to get stuck in or I really can’t be bothered and a wash of colour for definition is the most I have time for. So whether I’m in the mood to stick with one colour and smudge it out for a sexy smoulder or go all out with the 3 tone defined cat eye executed with precision and a feline flick, I’ve got it covered with my go to shadows…
Naked Pallet. The original (and best in my opinion) naked pallet has you covered when you dare to go darker. Whether you want some serious drama or just want to make your eyes stand out a little more, there’s a colour or, even two for everyone in this pallet! Sidenote – Buck is my fav for deepening the crease for any look.
Charlotte Tilbury – The Dolce Vita. My go to on a night out. Absolutely stunning paired with blue eyes as the red tone is a perfect contrast to make them pop. The gold shade patted on the centre of the lid will ensure you’re party ready in an instant.
Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleon – Black Diamonds. Marketed for blue eyes but will look great with any eye colour. The light catches the pigment exquisitely to allow the eyes to sparkle. The cream formula in a pencil applicator allows for super quick and effortless application – a real winner for those times when you’re already half an hour late to the party!
Loreal Colour Rich – Quartz Fume. A formula flawless enough to stand with the best of them. No, seriously – for a fiver you can experience quality on par with Mac and Urban Decay! When I’m not really feeling the whole getting ready process or I don’t actually have an hour to get ready, I’ll sweep this over the lid for a dark, metallic look.
