Eyeshadow isn’t really our thing. It always makes us feel too ‘done’.
Just so you know, we’re the kind of gals who opt for sneakers over heels, a boyfriend blazer over a dress and smudged liner with a slick of mascara over a full-on smokey eye any day.
And our thoughts on those 10-minute ‘easy’ smokey eye tutorials on YouTube? Well they all forget to mention ‘time’, ‘patience’ and ‘serious skillz’ in their ‘what you’ll need’ sections, so by 2-minutes in we’re feeling a bit… cheated.
That’s not to say we don’t like the look of eyeshadow done well. There’s definitely something to be said for a cleverly contoured eye – a bit of shadow in the crease and under the bottom lashes can make your eyes look twice as big.
But we’re only up for it if it’s easy. We guess you could say when it comes to make-up, we want everything handed to us on a gold platter. And, correct us if we’re wrong, but that’s pretty much exactly what Urban Decay did with their Naked Basics Eyeshadow Palette.
It has the only shades you’ll ever need, all wrapped-up in one palette. Think of it as the ultimate contouring kit for your eyes.
