It’s summer and if you’re anything like me when it’s hot the last thing you feel like doing is wearing a full face of make up. I’ve found this incredible little duo that not only takes two seconds to apply but looks like you went to lots of effort. WIN!

There are some new products that just get you excited and the Max Factor Excess Shimmer in 25 Bronze is one of them. I would go as far as to label this the best cream eyeshadow to hit Australian shores and will be available very soon. It’s soft, easy to blend and the pigmentation is insane. I apply this with my finger all over the lid and it’s so dreamy.

At first I was leaving it there but I found, even with an eyeshadow base, the creaminess of this product doesn’t allow for it to set properly alone therefore I did see creasing. I then started adding a layer of the Max Factor Wild Shadow Pot in Auburn Envy all over and it helps the cream shadow last all day. The effect is subtle but still very pretty and I can see myself wearing this look alot over the next few months.

What are your favourite quick eye looks?

Also excuse the background. If only you could see the office at the moment eeepp. I’ll have it sorted in the next month so we can go back to pretty backgrounds and bright photos but until then we’ll have to cope!

      I haven’t seen the full range yet. I would love it if they had a beige in it as well… still playing around with lighting and step ups but it’s not actually as bad as I though >.< haha the joys of moving! At least in my cramped spare bedroom I knew how to get a good shot quickly :P

    This duo looks great! I love bronze shades on the eyes because I find they really compliment my blue eyes and they pair well with almost any makeup look!
