Most of us have a morning routine. I don’t know about any of you, but I like my sleep – sometimes a little too much. And so there are those hurried mornings when I’m a bit pressed for time. Today I’m sharing my go-to eyes for work on such occasions, featuring some of my favorite cream products of life: The Laura Mercier Caviar Sticks.
Now I’m not one that typically prefers cream products, generally speaking. But when it comes to the eyes, I love a good cream pot or shadow stick. They just make life so much easier. For this easy five minute look (which I’ve worn almost everyday this week), I’m using: Cocoa, a matte dark brown, and Moon Light, a metallic champagne beige. You can check out swatches in my original review of the Caviar Sticks here.
First step: After doing my brows and whatnot, I take a bit of Cocoa and apply it to the outer third of the eye. Then using a small, crease brush (this one here is the *e.l.f. Essential Eye Crease Brush), I quickly blend it out, taking the colour a little further up on the lid like so:
Second and Third Step: Place Moonlight all over the lid. I usually blend it in with my fingers. Then I go back on with Cocoa on the outer half of the lower lash line.
Finally, I add a little bit of Moonlight to the inner corner of the eye and inner half of the lower lash.
The final “eyes for work” look, with two coats of mascara (Tarte’s Lights, Camera, Lashes):
Truth be told, this look actually takes me about three minutes. But I said five to be safe. I can pair these simple, versatile eyes with almost any other color combination on the lips and cheeks. And the best part? I got an extra ten minutes of sleep. 🙂
P.S. This is my first “tutorial” style post. Hope you all enjoyed and it turned out alright. xo
