Ok, so this is a slightly long list...but everything really deserves to be on here!!
Shu Uemura Lash Curlers: I've had these for nearly four years now and I still love them to bits. These give me perfect, curled lashes and make my eyes look awake and doe-eyed.
Bourjois Little Round Pot Intense Eyeshadow: A gorgeous dark blue with a hint of shimmer. It's so great for lining your eyes when you want an alternative to black, or I will apply it to my lid and blend out for a smokey evening look. This stuff lasts forever and doesn't smudge at all. Plus, it's tiny so you can throw it in your clutch!
NYX Concealer Wand: Probably not the best shade match for me now that it's summer, but oh well. This concealer is light, but has enough coverage for my under eye circles. It's almost a little mousse like (though that could just be mine) and it blends so easily. I keep this in my bag for after the gym or the beach because it's so easy to use.
MAC 290 SE Brush: This is a miniature of their famous foundation brush, but lately I've been using it to blend my concealer and it works like a dream!
Two Faced Brownie Eyebrow Pencil: I bought this when I went blonde a couple of years ago, and I forgot how good it is! It's brilliant. It lasts ages and ages, even on sweaty old me! Which is great, because my brows are kinda non existent.
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Shadow Pencil: This pencil deserves it's own post (and it will get one, soon!) It's a shimmery taupe and the perfect every occasion shadow. I swipe it onto my lid, blend with my finger add a little mascara, and I'm good to go! And it lasts and lasts. Urban Decay is quickly becoming my favorite for long lasting eye products.
Benefit They're Real Mascara: Ok, so this is new. But I am obsessed! Obsessed, I tell you!! This mascara not only curls and adds volume to my lashes, but it also magically makes it actually look like I have more lashes than I do! This isn't "waterproof" but it doesn't smudge at all when I use my eye drops or take a nap. (full review and pictures coming soon)
L'oreal Lash Renewal Serum: This serum actually does make a difference to my lashes. When applied regularly, I can notice a difference within a week or so. I even get compliments on my lashes when I use this.
Urban Decay Primer Potion: Here's the deal. If you live in the Middle East or anywhere where it's hot and stick, YOU NEED THIS. Don't ask any questions, just go buy it. In fact, buy two of them. You can thank me later.
Sleek MakeUP Oh So Special Palette: This has been my best friend the past month. It's kind of bad in a way, because I don't really bother to use my other shadows, I just reach straight for this one. You can check out my review and some looks I've made using this palette.
Well, that's my (very long) summer hit list for eye makeup! Have you tried any of these products? What are your favorite summer eye products? :)
