3 eyeshadows - 2 looks

This is just a quick post tonight after playing around with makeup a wee bit.  I've been lacking in inspiration lately mainly because I need storage badly.  At the moment all of my makeup is thrown in a couple of boxes and I can't find anything.  Hopefully a trip to Ikea and some storage ideas will help me get on my merry way.

These are the 3 eyeshadows that inspired me tonight.  They're all from the MUA line from Superdrug and cost €1.20. Bargain!

I used Shade 19, a matte chocolate brown, Shade 11, a bronzey gold shimmery eyeshadow and Shade 8, the bright teal colour.  I used them on both eyes but in different ways.

On the left I used the teal shade all over the eyelid, the matte brown shadow in the crease and the shimmery bronze colour under the eye.  On the right I applied the bronze eyeshadow all over the lid, the matte shadow in the crease and the teal under the eye.  I used a brown eyeliner on the waterline and a slick of mascara on top and bottom lashes on both eyes.

These looks would be great for the summer.  I do the look on the left a lot with brown on the lid and a colour under the eye.  What do you guys think of this?  Any suggestions on other eyeshadows I could do this with?  It's recessionary times so we have to make the most of what we have girlies!!


  1. teal really makes your eyes pop!


  2. I like it! :-) I could wear that just as it is, actually. A little topsy-turvy, why not!

  3. Pigment looks good in these! I've never tried them because my eyes are sensitive and I'm scared of cheap stuff. Both look great on you. Mixing / layering colours together can bring a new lease of life to shadows you're bored of too.

  4. How pretty! I've always wondered how to wear blue/teal eyeshadow(=

  5. aw I love this look! have added those 3 shades to my list of things to buy! I'm blaming you for my growing MUA collecting although it hasn't cost me too much Yay for cheapness and the superdrug 3for2 at Christmas!

    Keep up the great writing!

  6. Love both looks. That bronzey eyeshadow is gorgeous.

  7. I need to get more mua shadows the brown looks stunning!! x
