EOTD: Simple neutral smoky eye makeup look with Accessorize eyeshadows

I haven't quite done an actual neutral smoky eye makeup look so far, favouring other colour combinations to make my EOTDs more interesting. Simple neutral smoky eye makeup look with Accessorize eyeshadowsBut having brought along only the Accessorize Lovely Day 32-eyeshadow palette on my trip, I had limited options and could use the blues, the greens or the purples only with some of the outfits I had packed. And, it gets dark here very quickly, by the time I want to go out in the late afternoons or evenings, so I haven't got hold of the natural light soon enough to photograph my eye looks. I've also been avoiding heavy eye makeup, since I prefer going makeup shopping with a comparatively bare face, for obvious reasons.
This is a simple neutral smoky eye makeup look I've done with the matte black eyeshadow, a rusty gold sparkle eyeshadow and a basic pale gold shimmer.

The Accessorize Lovely Day eyeshadow palette contains 32 eyeshadows, including neutrals, bolds and colours - great for varied looks on a trip. And the eyeshadows are very pigmented and apply smoothly. They don't crease, though the more sparkly shades do have a bit of fallout.

I used the Beautyblender Detailers brushes for this look - review coming up after I get back home, I promise! It is very difficult to blog while travelling. I finished this look with the Michael Marcus eyeliner cake I got in my Lip Factory Box. It applied smoothly and was quite creamy when wet and didn't smudge during the day.

I primed my lids with the Urban Decay Primer Potion and finished the look with LancĂ´me Hypnose Doll Eyes mascara. I've just bought yet another of those amazing tubes. Whoever invented that mascara ought to be knighted or something. I've reviewed it in detail here.

Hope you had a great Boxing Day! I've been hitting the few sales here and am becoming worried about my luggage for the return flight. I will be home soon (thankfully; it's the best part of going away, for me). I'll share a couple more looks with this palette, though, since I have a few ideas. Oh, and I've just received Urban Decay N@ked 3 as a Christmas prezzie! Woot!

    1. I do, in an Excel file :) You can find all my palettes here: http://www.mybeautyjunction.com/2013/07/stash-show-eyeshadow-palette-collection.html - I've sold five or six of the smaller ones and added N3 and some others now, so the numbers always remain the same.

  4. I think the neutral yet shimmery eye looks great. I am a big fan of neutral colors and this proves that they can be played up to support a glamorous look! I have the Naked 2, and the Naked 3 looks fabulous.
