The Not So Lazy Face

What can I say about this look? I like to keep my make up simple and elegant, so when I actually make the effort of putting eyeshadow on I keep to the neutral, more understated colours! I envy you girls who can do those amazing smokey looks with five different eyeshadows, but because of my hooded lids any effort I put into it goes to waste as you can't even see it when I have my eyes closed. So I keep it to a simple wash of colour all over the lid and I actually like it like that!



Here I used the darkest brown of this Sleek palette all over the lid. If anybody knows of any dupes for that, please let me know in the comments! It's my favourite colour of the whole palette and I'm almost hitting pan on it! I then added the shimmery brown to the lid area, just to give it a little something! I love this combination of colours, I think it looks very pretty! I used the lightest colour below my eyebrow to blend out any shadows, mix a bit of the brown and black and run it on my lower lash line and I'm finished! 

Again, because of my eyeshape I have to really go for it on the lashes, so curling them is a must! I got this Shu Uemura lash curler for Christmas 2010, it was the first present my now husband ever gave me! haha I lost the extra rubber band it comes with so I think I might need to replace it soon!

  13. Gorgeous! You're so pretty!

    I love the eyeshadow. I'm the same as you, hooded lids so it's not even worth applying anything. I usually just try to make my lashes pop.

    Love this look though, your skin looks flawless!
