I’ve been loving mauve shades lately. They are neutral, they pair beautifully with brown eyes and they feel so Autumny. From the lighter shades to the depeest berry, I think they are just what you need for everyday looks. Oddly enough and just for once, my favorite products are from the drugstore. So I thought that we should celebrate the fact that you don’t have to spend much to get these gorgeous colour combinations!
The Bourjois ColorBand duo that you can see in the picture is my go-to for Mondays,when I just can’t be bothered to use any brush. I apply them directly and blend with my fingers afterwards: Rose Fauviste for the upper lid and Mauve Baroque for the crease. They are waterproof and stay put the whole day. As I said, perfect for Mondays.
Then we have another fantastic and longlasting shade from Bourjois’ Color Edition range: Petale the Glace, a light and a little bit shimmery mauve. The texture is fantastic, it goes from cream to powder, so it makes a great base. And you can find it on sale here! I personally like to wear it together with the rich and lovely Metallic Pomegranate from Maybelline’s Color Tattoo 24hr. This combination would also be great for a night out, just intensify the colour and add black liner.
I think these shades can make any eye colour stand out without being too dramatic and they are neutral without being too boring. They will simply make your working beauty looks different yet still wearable. Have I convinced you yet?
