So who doesn't love a festive eye shadow? I personally love wearing golds, bronzes, dusky pinks, rusty reds and purples at this time of year. I generally much prefer warmer toned colours all year round anyway but these are always the shades and products that I reach for at this time of year so wanted to share them with you lovely lot.
Firstly, the Urban Decay Naked Palette, I think this is 3 but not entirely sure, I have owned this palette now for years and it's still going strong, I can't quite fathom out how I haven't hit pan yet but I love every single shade in this palette. You can create so many different looks and all the colours are perfect for this time of year.
I genuinely cannot get enough of these H&M beauties right now. I've got the eye liner in shade Come In Third which is a really pretty copper shade, then shadow pencil in shade Treasure Hunt, which is a lovely deep green shade with a gold undertone to it, it's perfect for this time of year all over the lid with a brown liner and a slight smokey outer corner. For the more bronzey/gold tones I have the By Terry Ombre Blackstar in shade Bronze Moon, any type of shadow stick is a winner in my eyes. They're so easy to use and give maximum impact with minimal effort and this little beauty is no exception. When applied all over the lid this gives the loveliest subtle hint of colour but it's also extremely buildable so can be built up to give a deeper and more intense colour. The MaxFactor Excess Shimmer - 25 Bronze, this stuff is seriously pigmented. It is the prettiest shade of bronze and has a slight shimmer to it giving the most luxe of finishes. I love to use this alongside the On and One Bronze in the evenings to create a bronze smokey eye and then finish with a thin line of brown liner. Then we've also got the Look Beauty Statement Eyes - 18 Luxe, this is a really pretty bronzey gold eye shadow. It's really finely milled so doesn't look too over the top but still gives enough glitter and glitz to jazz up any makeup look. I love wearing this over the top of the MaxFactor Excess Shimmer cream shadow all over the lid to add a real glitz to the look.
Then for a hit of colour I love the No7 Stay Perfect Shade and Define Stick in shade Deep Purple. It's a bold purple with a slight shimmer. This is more of an eye shadow stick but I have been using it on the lower lash line against a gold toned smokey eye for a hit of colour. It's super well pigmented and looks incredible on the lids and lash line. And lastly, the Body Shop single eye shadow in shade 260 Golden Cinnamon. You know me and my rusty red shades well this is the one. I just need a nice olive/khaki shade now and then I'm sorted. This goes wonderfully with my green eyes and looks lovely when paired with browns, greens, golds and bronzes...my favourite colours. It has a golden shimmer to it and is so so buttery soft that you have to make hardly any effort when applying to the eye lid. It glides on effortlessly and looks oh so pretty when on.
So they're my top festive eye shadows that I have been reaching for on a daily basis. Any recommendations?
