Gold Essentials

I realised that I haven't yet shared with you my everyday staple eyeshadows. If you're a regular reader then perhaps it won't come as a surprise that I do have a yearning for them golds. (I was trying to sound  Piratey there, hope it was appreciated!) I don't know if it's because I'm a brunette or because Im a neutral lover, but there's something about a gold eye shadow that makes me reach for that 217 blending brush and apply. In my makeup life so far there have only been three wonder shades that have stayed by my side. 

Burberry Sheer Eyeshadow in Gold Trench. I will admit, when I first purchased this it was mainly for the packaging and the Burberry label. Even more horrific is the fact I did not use this shadow for a good four months after its purchase. It was just too pretty and expensive to use...Anyway, enough of that. I now LOVE this shadow.  It's a lovely, simple plain gold without any hint of shimmer. It's always my go to 'I  don't know what eyeshadow to use today' kinda-shade. 

Sometimes I wonder where would I be without my Mac in  All that Glitters - one of my many questions of life! It is the perfect champagne gold colour and, if I'm going to have favourites, will always be my number one. I think I wear this shade a good 4 days of the week. It always perks my eyes up which is a bonus for these final student days!

The Bobbi Brown Long-Wear cream shadow stick in Golden Pink is my oily lid saviour. This one does not budge at all. It is very shimmery but It also like to partner this up with Golden Trench and apply it over the top, inner corners and on the lash line. 

What are your go-to shades?

Eye Hero

A weird fact about me is I have rather oily/sweaty eyelids. A lovely feature, I know. As a result of this I've always had a problem with getting eyeshadow to actually stay put on my eyelid or mascara to not smudge and stick to the top of my eye. (If anyone else has this annoyance please stick your hand up!)

Primer has to be an essential for me. I've tried a few over my oily-eyelid years but nothing has particularly wowed me...until I cam across a sample of the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion. There are no fingers crossed here. I promise I am telling the truth, but there was not one smudge of mascara and my eyeshadow stays on in perfect pigmentation for 8 hours. 8 hours people!!! I was so in love with this sample that of course I had to go and buy full size. 

Whether you share the same problems as me, or a looking for a primer for those sweaty party nights (something I can't say I'm too familiar with) then I seriously recommend trying this one! It now takes its role as a key player in my everyday makeup routine.
