My Lazy Neutral Eye Days

Now if there's one thing I would skip in my rushed daily makeup routine it would definitely be eyeshadow. Somehow I always feel a little overdone when i have the full eye makeup going on i.e lid, crease and a highlight for daily wear. But after reading a ton of blogs and feeling a little bit inspired  *also my ton of shadows just sitting there staring at me* I decided to try and make an effort over the past few weeks with my eye makeup application.

I decided to start with some neutral shadows just as a wash of colour all over the lid. So using a fluffy blending brush, I apply the shadow and blend it in. Not too obvious but still makes my eyes appear brighter. Smudge some brown liner, add tons of mascara and i'm done.

These are the shadows that i have been reaching for a lot. I'm hoping to add some bolder colours into my routine and just stop being lazy in the mornings.

Are you a serial eyeshadow skipper as well? Or do you prefer neutrals?


  1. I love butter cream! I usually wear eyeshadow but it isn't very elaborate, just neutrals.
