Drugstore eye makeup

So first let me introduce myself, Hey! I'm Natalia from I like to blog about Beauty - anything from reviews, hauls, and favourites. I also post a few photography posts from any travel trips or just an update of what I've been editing on Photoshop. I hope to see you over on my blog soon!

Let's get on with this eye makeup look...
For this look you'll only need 4 products, an eye shadow palette, a cream eye shadow, and eyeliner and essentially a mascara. And since this look is so easy and this blog post would be so short if I only told you what to apply, I will also review each one of these products too, soooo keep reading.

The products that i used:

This whole eye makeup look will cost you £25.96 altogether, which can I say is a good price for what you're paying for - ahem a whole 12 eye shadow palette and a creme eye shadow that will last you for years?!

So first, apply some of the Maybelline Cream Gel Eye Shadow in 'Pink Gold' but only focusing on the lid. This eye shadow applies really smoothly but you do have to work quickly with it because it does tend to set really quick and you won't have enough time to blend it out etc. Since this is a cream eye shadow, it will set and act like an eye shadow primer which means it will prevents creasing and ensures no smudge for as long as 24 hours. These don't claim to be waterproof but they do not come off at all when in contract with water or even when you smudge it by accident. This line comes in 11 different metallic shades and right now there's an offer in Boots for 3 for 2 on Maybelline products!

Sleek Au Naturel Palette

Then I used the shade 'Bark' in the crease just to give the eyes more depth and shadow from the Sleek Au Naturel Palette. You can see this shade in the swatch, but in the palette it's the third shade counting from the bottom left. I chose this shade because it's quite a cool toned shade which looks so pretty when paired to that golden rosy shade. It's quite a grey toned brown but it's not ashy. So now for my opinion on this palette, I have mixed reviews on this is because the matte shades in this palette are quite sheer which means they're only suitable for subtle looks like this one. They are build-able but it would take a lot of blending to achieve that really smoky eye makeup. As for the shimmery shades, they are great and really pigmented. To apply the crease shadow, I used my Sigma E25 Blending Brush which is my favourite brush for blending!

Lastly, using the Maybelline Master Precise Eye Liner to create a little flick just to extenuate the eye, make sure you keep it quite close to the lash line. You don't want to go too thick with this because this is just a gentle and pretty eye look, a thick line wouldn't look good with this because the eye shadow is really light. When applying, use the side of it to create the line on the lash line and then to create the flick, use the pointed tip first then drag the eye liner and join it with the line you just drew. I hope that made sense to you, i use the standard way of applying eyeliner so if you're not sure of how to do so, use YouTube tutorials as a video guidance. I really like this eye liner because it has a thin felt tip nib and its so easy to apply. I find that this eyeliner stays really black for a long time until the product starts to dry up, it also stays on your eyes throughout the whole day.

And lastly, for the mascara i'm using my favourite drugstore mascara, Maybelline Colossal Waterproof mascara after curling my lashes. You can read a full review on this mascara over on my blog, click here. I'm just using about 2 coats on top and bottom lashes just to open up the eyes more. I found that this mascara is perfect when you curl your lashes every day because it keeps the curl all day long and doesn't weigh down your lashes whatsoever. It is a waterproof mascara which is great for hotter months but this does mean you need to find a good eye makeup remover - I find that the Clinique Take The Day Off Makeup Remover works wonders with any type of waterproof makeup and most importantly, it doesn't irritate your eyes whilst removing mascara.

So as you see, this look is very simple and really easy to do, and also easy to recreate since i was using affordable products.
