Current Favourite Eyeshadows

This is more of an Eye of the Day than a Face of the Day. I used 3 different eyeshadows (ooh aren't I bold), which is a lot for me, since, as I've mentioned before, me and eyeshadows don't mix too well. I'm quite into neutral colours, mostly browns, as I always have been. I only own shimmery colours though because I've never got round to getting any decent matte ones, so that's basically all I've got to work with. Basically, all my make-up is gifts from family, for birthdays and Christmas, because I just never feel like going out and buying make-up, probably because I don't know what's best to pick and so on. When I do go shopping, I usually just head for clothes shops (much to the boyfriend's despair). I have asked for some neutral matte eyeshadows for Christmas, so fingers crossed! If not, I'll go to Sephora and see what they have there.

1) Catwalk Colour Cosmetics Eyeshadow Palette
I've mentioned this one before, I got it for Christmas last year from my Nan and I really like these colours. I used the bottom middle dark brown colour. It doesn't show how dark it is, but I supposed when it's on the skin it does look a lot lighter. It is shimmery (of course) but doesn't really show unless you use a lot. I just used a tiny bit on the outer corner.

2) Two Faced Eyeshadow & Lipgloss Palette
This palette used to belong to my sister, and it's ancient! But I recently rediscovered it, and the colours are quite nice (again, shimmery). I used the far right colour, which is sort of beige-y, but darker than the light cream colour on the left, all over my lid. It's nice but doesn't show up much on my eyelid, which is ok because that's the look I was going for (weird? yep). It's nice and soft, if that makes any sense and I really like the outside packaging.

3) Gio de Giovanni Creamy Eyeshadow Palette
I got this one in a little shop in Spain this Summer, and I instantly fell in love with it, especially since it cost only 4€! Which is an absolute bargain! The colours are so pretty and lovely. I don't use a brush with these because it doesn't pick the shadow up properly, so I just use my fingers, it gets the colour right. I used the bottom right dark brown colour over the first brown colour on the outer corner, just to give it a bit more sparkle. I really do love this palette, the colours, the texture, the price, everything is perfect! I even went back and got the blue palette, and it's just as nice.

The final look, with my usual Collection 2000 Extreme 24 Hour Felt Tip Liner and Collection 2000 Super Size Fat Lash Mascara.
