Am I bombarding you guys with EOTD's? I hope not!

I am a tiny bit relaxed this term hence the time for more looks. 

In anticipation of the much awaited Summer, I thought of opting for pastels. Now, you would usually want to line your eyes real good when wearing pastels to avoid an alien-eye effect, however as the colours I'm wearing have a natural sheen to them, they don't fall very flat and can get away without a liner in my opinion. 

I wanted to keep it uncomplicated and quite natural looking. With natural, I don't mean people to believe that you have a natural green-purple shadow on your lids. You know what I meant by natural here right?

I filled in the brows very lightly as otherwise they would clash with the look ridiculously! Ignore the glitter trapped in the brow hairs please *shudders*, I did most of the look with the aid of fingers... again... hence the slight mess.

And in case you're wondering, I used these two precious babies from Famous by Sue Moxley below to create the look. 

You can of course tone down the look and end it just below the crease to make it even more wearable but I usually extend it to the browbone as I have a huge eye lid area and can get away with it.

The golden green is pretty but dupable in my opinion. It's not as pigmented as the others I've tried from the range. Nevertheless, looks gorgeous on application. I would recommend checking out the purple one though, as it has two gorgeous shades in there. 

For a high street cosmetic brand, these are dirt cheap! In You can find these at Superdrug
