Beauty ¦ The one sweep wonders

Now don't get me wrong I love a complicated smokey eye with 7 different shades of maroon but early in the morning my brain doesn't really co-operate so it's all a bit much for me so today I decided I would show you the eyeshadow shades I reach for when I just want a bit of colour to sweep across my lids. 

I couldn't write a post about eyeshadow without mentioning my Urban decay naked palette now could I? Half baked is the most amazing shade to use if you want to dress your makeup up a little bit. I wore it a lot at christmas time as it's the perfect easy but a little bit glitzy shade. 

The Balm D3 is a much cooler gold compared to Half baked. It's a little bit sheerer and it just leaves the most gorgeous sheer wash of gold over the lid. I've actually been wearing this a lot for school as it is nice and subtle. You can expect to see a review of this palette soon! 

Mac All that glitters is a new shadow in my collection but I've been reaching for it so often as it is just so easy to sweep across the lid. A very similar shade is the Body shop Honeycomb eye shadow which is from the shimmer cube in 06 it reminds me a lot of all that glitters just with a little bit more orangey bronzeyness. The final shade I have is the Maybelline on and on bronze colour tattoo which is the easiest eyeshadow in the world and I tend to reach for it when i'm in a big rush.

  5. Lovely post, I also love half baked by urban decay, have you tried using buck from the same palette as a one sweep? It's so nice with a little bit of eyeliner as a daytime look
