If you’re a regular reader of my blog then
you will know that not a day that goes by that I don’t wear smokey eyes. I’m all about the eyes and think without
eyeliner, mascara and eyeshadow I just don’t feel like myself. Therefore, eye products are super important
to me and so choosing my favourites was difficult. I’ve cheated slightly and gone over by two product, opps! Forgive me!
Brows Kit: There hasn’t been a day that’s gone by
in the past two years where I haven’t used this product. Not only is the taupe brown shade perfect for
my eyebrows, but they all make incredible eye shadows which I used daily. This is my holy grail palette which I will
continue to forever repurchase!
Babydoll Mascara: A friend gave me this mascara
after saying that she couldn’t use it as the fragrance is too heavy and
irritated her eyes, but I adore it! This
gives me longest lashes, it’s fully worth the expensive price tag.
Magnifibres: Forever on the quest for an alternative to falsies which I hate,
I’ve discovered magnifibres. You can
read my full blog post here – where you can see how it works and just why I
Superliner: Another new find this year. Are you probably know I wear liquid or gel
liner daily and this has become my favourite. It’s nib is very fine which allows me to create the most perfect, intricate flicks.
Decay Shadow in Desperation: With so many palettes
that I call my favourite, it’s very rare for me to love an individual eye
shadow nowadays. However, (along with MAC’s Nylon, my favourite base shadow)
this has been a permanent fixture in my makeup bag. It’s colour is almost identical to the
taupe-grey in the HD Brows palette (with a little more pigment) and I’ve been
using it loads to create my signature smokey eye.
Scandaleyes Kohl Liner: I’m never seen without a
dark shade lining my waterline (to the point that a friend actually asked me if
my tearducts ever get blocked… if you’re wondering, no, they don’t)! My
favourite kohl of 2013 is the Rimmel Scandaleyes in Black. These pencils are available in a great
variety of shades, they are creamy and pigmented which means they don’t tug on
your eyes when applying and they last well also!
Bobbi Brown Cool Tones Palette: I discovered and fell in love with Bobbi Brown palettes this year. After the launch of their incredibly popular Chocolate palette (review here and here), I got my hands on this Cool Toned palette from their Winter collection which contains 6 of the most stunning, matte & shimmery neutral shades. I ADORE this and love using it. Also perfect for travelling!
