cheap and cheerful

hey girls

sorry i havent had a chance to update my blog this week but in the next few days ill be posting foundation reviews, swatches, and some make up tutorials!!!
thanks for all the support girls! :)

today im doing a review and tutorial
on 17 eyeshadows!!!!

Ive been using 17 eye shadows for years these are by far one of my favourite drugstore brands
not only are they cheap but they are good quality shadows they have a velvety feel and glittery finish and the colour pay off is quite good which is quite inpressive for shadows that only cost approx 5euro/3pounds!!
these are perfect for any girl starting out in makeup!!

i apologise about the condition of these shodows ive had them a very long time and are a little bit battered haha!! ill be doing 2 tutorials today for you guys using these shadows :)

for the first look ill be using the baby pink and dark green
for the second look ill be using the baby blue and purple


i saw this picture in a avon brochure and thought it looked really cute and simple so decided to try a similiar look using these shadows

ok so, first of all i primed my lid using urban decays primer potion
then i applied the baby pink colour all over my lid and the inner corner of my upper and lower lids
( always apply the lighter colour on your inner corner this will act as a highlight and brighten the look)
next apply the dark green on the outer corner of your eye and blend
then i applied the dark green on my lower lid starting from the outer corner and stopping about half ways in! this is optional!
and lastly i lined my lid using a liquid liner and added mascara :)

for the 2nd look!
i used the baby blue all over my top lid
and purple on my lower lid
lined my lid using liquid liner and lined my water line using urban decays 24/7 pencil liner in zero
and added mascara
easy! :)

hope this was helpful girls
