Its no secret that when it comes to eyeshadow, I am an absolute neutrals girl and that will probably never change.

Above are my top five favourite (it was hard to narrow it down to just five).

As you can see I’m a massive Urban Decay fan when it comes to eyeshadows, I have 3 other more prior to the 3 in this picture but I would say they are more vibrant colour ones, if you want too see a blog post on them let me know in the comments.

Urban Decay never fails when it comes to eyeshadow. Each and every eyeshadow is very pigmented and non powdery at all, can’t go wrong? The naked 1 is my all time favourite palette to ever exists I have not found one that can replace it yet, but do you blame me? I mean look at it! It’s gorgeous. It consists of neutrals with golds that would suit a brown eye perfectly! Hence my love for it. The Naked Basics was kindly giving to me at my 17th birthday from one of my best friends, I honestly love this for travelling it is the most perfect palette. It is very compact and lightweight. Plus the neutral colours are amazing for everyday easy looks.The Naked 3 palette is a new one to my collection, I don’t love it as much as the Naked 1 but its pretty up there in terms of colour and quality, as it consists of beautiful rose gold colours that I would of never seen anyone else come up with! very unique urban decay! I tend to use the naked 3 palette if Plus you can’t go wrong with a free amazing brush with both naked 1 and 3 and title mini primer potions which is also my fave eye primer.

The next is one which has everything you need in one palette it is a life saver and it’s my BH cosmetics Forever Nude palette! It comes with 6 neutral shadows, 2 lip options, a highlighter and 2 blushes! AMAZING! I only payed £16 for this on ebay, abouslte bargain if you ask me! Amazing quality and for that price you can’t go wrong.

My last all time favourite is a new one in my collection, I use this a lot when I want to go for a smoked out eye look with a gold shimmer, perfect for a night out! These shadows are highly pigmented and you’ll be amazed at the price only £13!! Thats £1.60 per shadow! Insane I know, what an economical purchase this was. Plus golds and browns are my favourite shades of eyeshadows, just saying.

Top 5 Mac Lipsticks


Flat Out Fabulous in Retro Matte Finish

Captive in Satin Finish

Lady Danger in Matte Finish

Plink! in Lustre Finish

HoneyLove in Matte Finish

I’ve always been one to keep it safe with lip colour, sticking to neutrals and nudes. Recently I’ve branched out and went out my comfort zone a little bit by trying lipsticks with a bit more colour and ill tell you I do not regret that decision one bit!

The above 5 are just a few of my favourites.

First we have the two purple toned lipsticks. Purple is one of those lipsticks where I would of never tried or even thought of to put on my lips. My sister picked up Captive and I used it once then fell instantly in love, it is the perfect dark plumy colour for my skin tone. It makes my skin look flawless (it’s a miracle I know). This is definitely one of my all time favourite lipsticks for autumn/winter time.

Now we have Flat Out Fabulous, since I had an obsession with Captive I wanted another purpley colour to try with a tiny bit of difference, Flat Out Fabulous is actually a lot more different to Captive even though they look the same in the picture (whoops). Flat Out Fabulous is very matte and is a pure purple colour where as Captive has a sheen and makes the lips look more glossy and plumpy.

Then we come to Lady Danger which is a true red with an orange undertone, this is one is also a favourite of my mums’ as she’s got paler skin to me and it looks amazing on her! Very brightening and perfect shade for spring/summer, you really can’t complain with Mac’s red lipsticks as they never fail to impress.

Lastly we have my two favourite ever nudes which are Plink! (top right hand corner) and HoneyLove (bottom right). Both suit my skin tone amazingly and with an extra bit of Barry  M Toffee Lipgloss on top then I am sold! Definitely my favourite combo. Plink! is  a very sheer light lipstick that looks as though it is meant to refreshen the lips and give that shiny glow that you want in summer. HoneyLove is a perfect nude for the night time with a gloss over it, your lips will look juicy and gorgeous! Unexpectedly the matte finish of the lipstick is not drying at all. Highly recommend if anyone is looking for a nude.
