Summery runway inspired EOTD

I absolutely love runway looks, especially those that seem roughly sketched and don't have their edges blended. They're almost like a subtle cut crease, have a winged out shape on the outer corner of the eye are neat and crisp.

Quite a refreshing change from our over blended, brow-bone covering eye shadow looks. Plus, it's much more easier to pull off bold colours in such a look as they don't go over your natural crease hence don't show up as much. Great for summer weddings!

I used two Barbara Daly Satin Swirl Eye Shadows for this look. These are gorgeous by the way. If you haven't tried them out yet, I recommend rushing to your nearest Tesco now.

This is what I had in mind...

And this is what I came up with.

It's quite simple compared to other EOTD's I have done in the past. But simplicity is its beauty here. Ditch the overdone eye this summer and opt for something simple like this in other colour combinations or just one block of colour perhaps.

I love how it ends just under the crease of the lid.

Oh the falsies applied on the outer corner are Superdrug's own brand. Cheaper than chips :)
