Even though I'm constantly trying new products, I've found myself singling out and circulating through the same bunch of beautiful eye colours in the recent weeks and months. I'm all about the coppers, the burnished bronzes, the mauve-taupes, something that's flattering and pretty whatever you're up to during the day. Want a peek?
Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pencil in Bronzebeam | Strictly speaking an eyeliner but I smudge it all over the lid for some daytime smoke. The formula of these pencils are hands down winners, they last all day on the eye without smudging or creasing and Bronzebeam is a particularly beautiful bronzey-brown with golden-copper shift.
H&M Eyeliner in Copper Bullion | A full on copper penny shade speckled with silver glitter, I tend to smear this on in a thick line and smudge the edges with a q tip. For something so inexpensive, the lasting power is pretty fab.
Kiko Long Lasting stick in 06 Golden Brown (review) | Golden brown is exactly what this shade is. It gives you a lovely metallic finish and these Kiko sticks are some of my very favourite eyeshadows, you can have a little look at my full review for more colours.
L'Oreal Infallible in Tender Caramel | A full coverage, iridescent semi-pressed pigment, the Infallible shadows give you a punch of colour and are lovely and long lasting. I love this multidimensional taupe-y shade that comes across a little purple, a little brown, it looks so pretty on brown eyes.
Kiko Cream Crush in 06 Pearly Chocolate | Kind of like if Bronzebeam and Copper Bullion had a baby, it's no wonder I like this colour. More metallic rather than glittery I find it makes brown eyes look more fiery.
Kiko Long Lasting stick in 38 Golden Taupe (review) | Honestly, I am in love with this colour. It's so demure, and subtle, but get the right light and it's a little bit special. A mauve-y-taupe base with subtle golden shimmer, I think this colour looks best when blended out. I like to go in with one layer all over the eyelid, sheer it right out then add another layer or two to build the colour at the lashline.
Laura Mercier Amethyst (review) | These purple-brown mixes are giving me life lately, and Amethyst is no exception. You look from one way and it's a cool mauve-y hue, look from another and you see more of a warm brown, so pretty and flattering.
Coastal Scents Hotpot in Rich Walnut | Throwing in a desperately inexpensive shadow that is actually a strong favourite. The colour is so deep and rich, it comes across as a brown base with hints of burgundy and purple. I'd advise layering this over a cream base to get the staying power and I do like using this on a damp paddle brush to amp up the intensity.
Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleon in Dark Pearl (review) | Yet another mauve-y-taupe (I promise each is different and a justified purchase!) this one is darker, a cool, almost greyish, purple mixed with a golden brown. The whole range of Colour Chameleons are great, I'm not sure which colour to pick up next!
Freedom Audacious Palette 3 | Such a gorgeous range of colours from shimmery rose golds to warm matte pinks to dark smokey greiges. I've been using this palette so much lately, any mix of the colours gives you a unique and pretty eye look, and you can find it as part of my giveaway if you'd like to win it for yourself!
