I'm by no means an expert when it comes to all things (or any things..) 'beauty' related. I can do one look; the one on my face. So, when I find something new to add to my very standard makeup repertoire, I feel compelled to share it with you. So, whilst wasting some time in Selfridges recently, I wondered into the Bobbi Brown section. I always find make up counter ladies, as friendly as they usually are, slightly intimidating.
'Their makeup is flawless..' I think.
'I haven't had my eyebrows done in 3 months and my contour game isn't even anywhere close to being on fleek. THEY WILL JUDGE ME' I tell myself.
However, I'd been having an internal conversation with myself about how I don't really make enough effort with my makeup. Yes, I wear lashes daily because I find them so easy to apply, but I don't wear any form of eyeshadow. Almost ever. These seemed like an unbalanced set of priorities. So I decided to talk myself into appealing for their help. I basically approached a lady and asked 'pls can u help me with the eyeshadowz?' I was promptly perched onto one of those stools that are ever so slightly too high so your legs dangle awkwardly in the air like a toddler about to have their first haircut. I wanted something that was subtle - something that you couldn't necessarily notice until you get close up. I won't bore you with the details, but the extremely helpful assistant and I settled on this 'everyday appropriate' colour combination. A shimmery champagne to wash over the lids and an ivory matte colour to highlight the brow bone and add dimension. Even though it isn't hugely noticeable - which is exactly what I wanted, it's the perfect amount of product and colour to just add a little something extra. Basically when I wear eyeshadow I feel like my life is super fab and I am so in control. I havent become one of those people who wears flawless eyeshadow everyday, but I'm working on it.
How about you? Do you wear eyeshadow everyday? What are your favourite everyday colours?
