Half-term wasn’t as restful as I had hoped. I fell ill for the first two days and spent the next three days organising life. In preparation for the next stretch of term I’ve created somewhat a ‘eye-makeup menu’ full of products which will help me maintain that ‘well rested’ look. Let me just guide you through my products. NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Ginger is probably one of the most easiest to use concealers I own. Its really easy to blend out and on an everyday basis I use my fingers to pat & blend away. The Maybelline Eraser eye is probably the next best things for a fraction of the price. It may seem slightly excessive to have two concealers but I have seriously dark under-eye circles – part hereditary part lack of sleep – and the Maybelline concealer works extremely well layered on top! Lately my eyeballs (that sounds wrong) have been really red and just not that …white…the Rimmel Scandaleyes in Nude is the perfect product to counteract the redness in my eyes and I just swipe this across the inner-bottom lash-line. Okay so the next two products are pretty much ‘just incase I have an extra 10mins spare’ which is probably going to be never as I am pretty much always rushing out the door in the morning, but options never go a-miss right? The L’Oreal Super-liner is a felt-tip pen which currently has dried out, I only really use it for the pen-stype nib and dip it into my MakeUp Forever Black Eyeshadow pot aka the best eyeliner out there. It’s long lasting, dries as a velvet finish.

Now even though eyeliner may not be on the cards in the morning, mascara is a must – without them my eyes look so small! Currently I have been loving the L’Oreal Million lashes, it has a plastic wand and it lifts and gives a good amount of volume in the lashes. However mascaras are something that I love to change up so leave suggestions in the comments! *raises glass* Here’s to eye’s looking brighter and the next 6 weeks of term…bring.it.on.

    Ahh I need to try that NARS concealer! Might give the Maybelline Eraser a go in the mean time – thanks for the recommendation! Also I love the idea of using the L’Oreal nib as a tool to apply another product! L’oreal eyeliners are the best applicators I’ve tried but I personally prefer gel liner so might dig out an old empty one and give it a go!

    fabuleuse, toujours ♥

    The eraser eye sounds amazing I will have to give it a go, nothing wrong with layering and two products hahah I feel like I need that with most things I use cos i barely get an hour sometimes at night- that’s not a good look ;) xxx

    I keep meaning to get hold of Scandaleyes in Nude but I always forget and end up using a white shadow. I always layer up products, as long as it doesn’t look cakey – you’re all good!
