FOTD - Metallic smoky eye

I was quite bored before so I thought I'd experiment with my make up. This is something I rarely do to be honest. I love reading blogs and magazines about beauty products. I'm always in Boots, Debenhams, Fenwicks, etc scouting out the latest products and I spend most of my money on makeup and skincare. I'm never very adventurous with makeup though. I stick to the same every day products and all my expensive purchases sit unused. It's almost like a collection that I just like to own and look at. Sad really!

I wear eyeshadow every day but I always just tend to wear one shade, just a neutral light brown or peachy shade. I'm not very artistic so have always been nervous about trying multiple shades and blending.

This is only the second time I have ever tried to do something different with my eyes as I'm bored of the same look! I'm still not sure I'd feel confident enough to go out like this. I'm just not used to seeing myself like this! I need more confidence! I guess if I keep practising different looks I will be more comfortable.

This has been a bit of a rambly post but I felt like I needed to explain myself in case you are horrified by this look! Haha

The products and brushes I used are as follows:

Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer in Fair
Models Own Lashed-Up Volumiser Mascara in Black
MUA Clear Mascara
The Body Shop Limited Edition Palette
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero

Urban Decay Complexion Primer Potion - Pore Perfection
MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation in NC15
MAC Mineralize Blush in Dainty

Rimmel Stay Glossy Lipgloss in Non-Stop Glamour

No7 Concealer Brush
No7 Foundation Brush
No7 Eye Contour Brush
No7 Eyeshadow Blend and Contour Brush
Ms Makeup Blush Brush

I don't think this palette is available anymore. I bought it in June/July when it was half price. It was from the University of Arts London / London College of Fashion Limited Edition Collection. I did try the pink shade on when I first began this look but it made my eyes look sore and tired so I applied the silver over it!

One last thing I wanted to add was about the No7 brushes. If you are stuck for things to buy with those £5 vouchers, I highly recommend trying the brushes. Especially if you are new to brushes and don't want to spend a lot of money on MAC or Sigma whilst experimenting.

Hope this post wasn't too long!

Thanks for reading,
