Neither of us wears eyeshadow every day. Well, maybe a quick sweep of a muted, sheer powder, but nothing that screams ‘hello, I’m wearing eyeshadow’! But this is an everyday eyeshadow tutorial! Of course, by ‘everyday’ we mean that when you want a quick, easy daytime look to just open up and brighten your eyes, we’ve got it covered. Using just your fingers to apply (like V) or a brush (like M – who always reaches for her favourite Morphe tools) this should only add a couple of minutes to your regular make-up routine. So here goes…


M is a Fashion Fanatic, oh yes she is!

We’ve chosen two palettes that we’re loving right now. M is using MAC Fashion Fanatic, £32, (temporarily out of stock – yikes! – but should be back soon) with its hot pink, berry and lilac tones, and V has opted for YSL Couture Eyeshadow Palette, £38.70, in Parisienne, which contains soft pinks, grey and mauve. Both palettes boast powders that are beautifully creamy, pigmented and easy to work with. Palettes like these are designed to work and blend well together, so there’s no need to worry about the shades not matching. You can’t really go wrong.


V wishes she really was a Parisienne! Alas, she’s a Mancunian.


Ta-da! Here we are. Just a pop of sheer colour has ‘lifted’ our look. And it’s so quick, easy and foolproof. This is about a natural, fresh face that works perfectly on the school run, in the office or just ‘on the go’.

Pretty, daytime eyes – agree??

Muted, pretty tones tend to soften the eye area and enhance what you’ve got. The more powder and colour you pile on your eyes, the more it tends to sit in any lines and creases and can be very ageing. Remember girls, less is more!


Love and easy-peasy eyeshadow,
