Crystal Waters

I have the feeling that I am bombarding you guys with EOTD's. Please tell me if I am.

It's not me trust me, it's this freaking awesome weather that's suddenly hit London and us Londoners have no idea until when we will be blessed by the holy rays of the sun hence we are taking full advantage of the weather as much as we can.

Be it via ditching those layers of coats, bringing out see-through tops, raiding the park, sunbathing, taking all the dogs in the world (for God's sake, how many dog's does one freaking person own to take 8 out for a walk!) for a walk or sporting bright eye shadows. Yes the last one would be me.

I opted for a simple block of colour on the eyes. I feel when it comes to using bright and bold colours, they make a statement on their own hence going overboard is not a necessity. I kept it simple and clean.

The trio I used above is called Crystal Waters by GOSH and is a beautiful mixture of blues and turquoise. These are lovely to put on and have a satin like texture and finish. It's perfect for when you don't want to go completely shimmery or matte.  

I have to mention, the pigmentation of these shadows is striking yet blending is so easy. I used the brightest blue all over the lid and used the lighter blue in the crease as a gradation colour so that the fading seems less harsh. 

Tip: Keep the brightest colour very close to the lid and prevent it from extending upwards. Apply bright colours as such in a patting motion close to the lid instead of swiping them all over. This way you will have more control over application and will ensure good colour pay-off. 

I also incorporated GOSH's Liner in Turquoise in the above look however it did not seem to compliment the look very well. The liner is pretty bright and shimmery on its own however it does not look powerful enough on the bright base. 

I will show you how the liner looks on its own on bare lids as its super pretty!

Have you been enjoying the weather lately?

The weather was beautiful up here in Manchester too! Shame I was stuck in doors at work.

The colour pay off looks fab. The only turquoise eyeshadow I own is by Topshop and it was a bit of a disappointment.

Please keep the EOTDs coming! :) xo
