Tropic Fever

I cannot get enough of bright colours in the summer. Come on, its the only time of the year when it's appropriate to sport such colours (well at least in the UK!). 

I have some lovely bright shades by GOSH but I wanted to use them in an unusual manner and wanted to make it a bit more wearable. Hence I used the lighter shades all over the lids, and used the deep turquoise colour to outline the eyes. 

I just loved how it turned out. Outlining the eyes with a brighter colour makes them stand out a lot. 



After a while, I still wanted to make the look a tad more dramatic and thought the outline was not dark enough. I decided to go over the outline with a Gosh Long Lasting Eye Liner Pen in  Green. It is a blackened green with a bit of shimmer to it.


I love how the liner instantly deepened the look and added a bit of gloss to it as well. I am planning to wear this look to an Indian wedding I will be attending soon. 


I used GOSH's Eyeshadow Trio on Tropic Fever for this look. I used the yellow all over the lid, the lime green in the crease and the blue to line the eyes. 

The colours are extremely smooth and silky. Unlike the other drug store bright eye shadows out there, these are not chalky or powdery at all. 

Don't be afraid by how bright they seem in the pan, as in reality they are quite wearable, just adding a dash of colour. Having said that, they are decently pigmented compared to other shadows I have tried from the high street. 





Available at Superdrug for around £6. Definitely check these out!

I'd overlooked Gosh's eyeshadows until very recently when i got one of there singles. And I actually really liked it, this trio may have to become part of my stash in the next few weeks, it looks gorgeous with and great pigmentation as well.

Omg, I absolutley love this look!! It suits you so much and the blue liner makes for a nice subtle smokey look. Would never have though that trio would look so nice! I'd usually skip it cause it looks so bright.
