Prom Prep: Eyeshadow/Eyeliner

I had first planned on a purple smokey eye to match my purple prom dress but then I thought that might be a bit too matchy-matchy so I think I am going to go for more neutral, metallic look.

I definitely plan on using my NAKED palette from Urban Decay as there are 12 colours (some matte, some shimmery) and they are all ridiculously pigmented. Even if you're going for colourful eyeshadow, 'Virgin' which is a pale, almost white, colour works perfectly as a highlight.

If your budget doesn't quite stretch to Urban Decay, Natural collection have a great range of colours with surprisingly good pigmentation for £.199 each and the No7 solo eyeshadows are great too - but a little bit more pricey.

My 2 favourite bases for eyeshadow are definitely the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion and the Benefit Creaseless Cream Eyeshadows, which are also great on their own for a slick of long-lasting colour.

And for eyeliner, the best one I have tried in a long long while is the new Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Liner. It's only £5.99 and I'd say it's possibly even better than the MAC gel liner and it comes with a really great liner brush.
