Transition into Summer: Eyes

37 comments


The look I am coveting most for the S/S time is a shimmery, almost metallic, white to champagne toned shadow all over the lid. I was never a fan of this super brightening look before and steered more towards browns and coppers, however my tastes have changed and luckily I already have a fair few of these kinds of shadows in my stash that were previously reserved for highlights!

1. Maybelline Eye Studio Quad in 'Copper Chic'
These quads are quite a favourite in the beauty community and for good reason! They are insanely buttery and very, very shimmery. I picked this up on a whim because it was on sale and I am a sucker for copper shadows. I never really thought of the first, bright, white colour had too much potential as anything but a highlight - but I was wrong. It is stunning all over the lid and doesn't leave the dreaded shimmery fallout all over your cheeks.

2. Lorac Pro Palette
There is one shadow in particular from the Lorac Pro that I love to use all over the lid to achieve this look and it is "nude". As the name suggests, it is a very natural shade but has that luminosity that I've been loving! The shade "champagne" next to it is also nice, but does have some larger glitter chunks that are more night appropriate.

3. Maybelline Colour Tattoos in 'Tough as Taupe' and 'Bad to the Bronze'
Okay, I know I said that I was avoiding bronzes, but these two are key when it comes to the summer. They stick around all day and make the perfect base to avoid creasing! Champagne shades on top of "Bad to the Bronze" also look stunning, and "Tough as Taupe" is a great one-colour-lid kind of shade.

4. NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils in 'Yoghurt' and 'Mocha'
These are amazing, but need to be paired with a primer for longevity. Yoghurt is the perfect shimmery base or standalone shade and Mocha when sheered out looks beautiful as well. They are a dream to apply and are such an easy way to create an eye look.

5. Smooch Eye Duo
This was a product I picked up in a sale bin solely because it resembled a NARS product. I had never heard of the brand before and was pleasantly surprised when I swatched these shadows and realised they were super buttery! The lightest shade in this is so, so stunning on the eyes, and while a little more chunky than some of the other shades, very workable.

What is your favourite eye look for the summer time?

  2. Gorgeous shades! The light, metallic, almost wet-look shadows are beautiful in the spring and summer! I remember seeing those Smooch shadows around, glad to hear they're good! The Maybelline quad looks so pretty!

  5. There is so much smooch at chemist warehouse, I did some research and it's a UK brand. I wonder why nowhere else stocks it?

  7. I picked up mine from Amazon.com as they stock it (it's not from an individual seller, so you know it will be authentic). If they ship to Australia I'm sure they'll ship to the UK!

  12. Headed into winter over here in UKland, but I also love the golds and bronzes at the moment. I really gravitate toward them in the winter because they feel warm and festive!

  18. Bad to the Bronze is one of my most worn eye shadows, I've nearly hit pan on it which almost never happens! I absolutely love the look of the maybelline palette. I've been reaching for The Balm's Nude Tude Palette a lot recently because of the pink and gold shimmery shades which I find really pretty and easy to wear xx

  23. I've had the Maybelline quad for a while, but I'm looking to find colors that are a little more natural and more range. Thanks for showing the Lorac Pro Palette, it seems like a great option to try for next time!

  26. It really is as it has a few "coloured" shadows, such as a purple, a steel blue and a reddy-copper but they are still so wearable! x
