I wear very little makeup – just mascara, eyeliner and lipstick. I own eye shadow, blusher and foundation for when I need to look a bit more made-up but seldom use them. Why? Because applying more makeup would take too much time, because it wears off over my very long days, and also because I am terrible at applying it. I am pale so anything more than a light veil looks like a mask (and worse) on me. I also walk a lot in wind, rain and snow so my eyes water, my nose runs, and my face gets wet.
One thing that I have been using recently though, is Clinique Chubby Stick Eye Shadow Tint in Lots O’ Latte. It goes on quickly and easily, stays there all day and looks really good with my hazel eyes. It seems to be idiot proof which is just what I need! A small tint of colour makes a really big difference. I usually use warm and pinky browns on my eyes.
