Comfort Zone FOTD

I thought I will show you my current comfortable makeup rut and the products I have been using on most days.

Its nothing innovative I'm afraid we are still safely in the land of taupe browns and other similar eyeshadows with a dash of lipgloss (that gets changed for a bright lip every now and then). But it takes me minimal effort and time in the mornings and I'm all about that extra snooze.

Now I dont want to lie because there are days where I feel that nothing else but a cat flick will do so I spend that extra 10min of trying to perfect my eyeliner but most morning I choose having a longer morning cuddle with the dog and cats. To be honest anything that requires a steady hand in the morning is a bit of a challenge as this is the time Yallas loves to jump up and down on my lap.

The winning combo for those "lets-just-smack-stuff-on" mornings is Mac Sable eyeshadow (Link) packed onto the lid and blended lighter into the crease. On top of that goes By Terry Ombre Blackstar in Misty Rock (Link). I still have a lot of love for this shimmery plummy cream stick. I think this alone is a bit weak for me but paired with Sable you couldn't get a better match. It also blends like a dream and stays put for the whole day. This is shimmer in its best form no glittery bits in sight.

On the rest of my face you can find:
Face: NARS Sheer Glow foundation
          Clinique Airbrush Concealer
          Laura Mercier mineral powder

Bronzer: Smashbox Bronze Lights bronzer in Suntan Matte
Blush: NARS Orgasm
Mascara: Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes
Eyeshadow: Mac Sable, By Terry Ombre Blackstar in Misty Rock and a bit of Silk Teddy (from Too Faced Natural Eyes palette) in the inner corner 
Lips: NYX Butter Gloss in Apple Strudel

Whats your current favorite every day eyeshadow? 
Something that makes you feel put together but is super easy to use as well.. 


  1. I would never have thought have putting the By Terry OVER an eyeshadow. I finally found a cream shadow stick that was everything I hope Misty Rock would be-Its from Trish McEvoy and I just love!!

    Love Nars Orgasm so much and I must break open my Tarte mascara
