Eye candy: Three killer shadows to perk up your make-up bag


Can you think of a better way to get brighten up a dreary winter’s day than with jarring brights, smoldering blue tones and liquid metal metallic eyeshadows? I can’t! Which means before you scramble through your make-up bag, you want to make sure you’re armed with any (or ALL!) of these three options. They’re fresh on the beauty scene and come in all sorts of awesome glitzy glam shades which will make your lids the star of  the show.


2. Illamasqua Liquid Metal 4 Colour Palette

Care for bold and bright eyes, pronto? This versatile palette will ambush your lids with a plethora of metallic hues guaranteed to make your peepers glamma-fied no matter what the occassion. And since we’re all aboard the colour express, you’ll want to go all out by clashing brights and bringing out the rainbow vixen in you (we all know she’s in there somewhere!). Illamasqua Liquid Metal 4 Colour Palette, $78, shop.myer.com.au,

2. NARS Limited Edition Eyeshadow Trio – Cap Ferrat

This trio of sea blues will deliver a cool wash of colour to your lids without causing strangers to point and stare (well they still might, but only in a good way!). The adorbs shades – icy sea foam, silver green and icy turquoise – are gorgeously pigmented hues that will keep your eyes softly muted and oh-so-pretty. Layer with amber golds for a more ethereal effect. NARS Limited Edition Eyeshadow Trio – Cap Ferrat, $89, meccacosmetica.com.au

3. Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour

Kick your statement look up a notch by going two-tone with these ultra luminous shades. While you’re at it, vamp it up a bit by wetting the powder when applying onto your lids for a more vibrant hue or apply dry for a more subtle shade. And lucky you – you have six fab colours to choose from: Ballet Pink, Black Karat, Lagoon, Petal Pink, Terracotta and Violet Sky. Laura Mercier Baked Eye Shadow, $39, adorebeauty.com.au

I can't do coloured lids... I look like a drag queen. Instead I stick to a nice bold lip - so much easier to pull off!


Wow those Illamasqua colours are incredible!!! I love them!


The NARS trio looks better; I reckon. SO refreshing !


I love the nars trio as well, those colours are so eye-catching and vibrant!


the eyeshadow is amazing!! look for queen of blending on youtube for tutorials on how to pull bold eyes off!


The Illamasqua colours look amazing...the green and the yellow would have gone well together for a great Aussie Day look
