If you’re a regular reader you’ll know that I love an eye stick! I’m really into mono shades on my lids to easily cover the lid without any fancy smoking, crease colouring or shading and it’s liberated my make up routine.
The point about an eye shadow stick is that it needs no brush – it’s a simple as using a crayon – just colour and go. I like to add a dark line of kohl as close to my lash line as I can get over the top of the shadow, with kohl on inner rims too, and a generous amount of mascara. But, that’s it! I think it’s more of an eye opening look than piling on several colours – at this minute, I’m convinced I’ll never do a cut crease again!
The Body Shop Eye Colour Sticks can proudly take their place alongside any pricey counterparts as they deliver generously on colour with ease, without crumpling the delicate eye lid skin and without any smudging. As with any eye stick, use a primer first if you have oily lids, but otherwise, I’d suggest that they are completely fool-proof. It’s not everyone’s idea of a great time to sit down and put multiple colours on your lids – especially if you are losing your lids a little and they’re not as taut and ‘open’ as they once were. An eye stick – or even just a liner – is a good way to add a flash of colour that’s not dependent upon complex blending and shading.
If you have blue or green eyes, in particular, opt for any of the copper/gold shades to allow the colour of your eyes to really intensify and if you have brown eyes, you’re lucky – you can wear anything! The Body Shop has Eye Colour Sticks to choose from – if you want to see me creating the look, I’ve got a video on IGTV so just log into Instagram (HERE). At £8 each, they’re an absolute steal and the easiest things ever to pop in your handbag alongside a lipstick to top up on the go if necessary. The shade I like best is Miami Sunset, but really, I could wear any of them just fine. You can find them HERE. In the swatch above, from bottom to top, it’s Barbuda Rose Shells, Aruba Palm, Boracay Sand and Miami Sunset.
