One Shadow Shadows

Since school is starting in a few days and the lazy mornings no longer will be an option I wanted to share some easy shadows that look good on their own, so you quickly can slap them on your face and look good.

Starting off with a few shadows from the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette, the shadows Liar, Factory and Mugshot are in particular some that look really good on their own, but also the colors Buzz and Trick can be used for this. The first three shadows are deeper rosy/mauve with shimmer and the last two mentioned are pink and gold shimmer that have a lot of fall out, which is why they may not be the smartest for when you're in a hurry in the morning. But they are beautiful for the purpose non the less.

Moving on to the Lorac Unzipped palette there are the shades Unbelievable, Unattainable and Uncensored that work well for this purpose. They are all beautiful rosy/bronze shadows with some shimmer in them and that also helps create dimension to the eyes when using only one shadow.

And last for the palettes there is the super cute Lorac Pocket Pro palette with three shadows that work great together, but there are two of them Nude and Pewder that work well for todays subject. Nude for when you want something that will open up your eyes as it's a light pinky shade and Pewder which is a bit darker and gives more of a dimension to the face.

For the loose eyeshadows we first have Chanel Ombre Essentielle Soft Touch Eyeshadow in 93 Complice a light peachy gold color with shimmer that will help open up the eyes for tired mornings.
Make Up Store Microshadow in Cashewnut a nude champagne with a subtle sheen that as well will open up the eyes and give a hint of sheen to them.
L'Oréal Infallible eyeshadow in 021 Sahara Treasure a metallic green gold that looks beautiful all over the lids.
And lastly Dior Diorshow Fusion Mono eyeshadow in 661 Météore a gorgeos bronze gold with lots of shimmer that looks beautiful alone with mascara.

The brush I love using when only applying one shadow is the Sigma Blending - E25 brush that applies the right amount of shadow to the lids while blending the edges as well, making it super quick and easy to do.
But for pressed pigments or cream eyeshadows I love using my Make Up Store 101 sponge tip brush that gets the full effect of the pigment or cream on the lids making it really quick.

Thank you for reading and I hope this was of some help coming in to the next school year! xo
