Pretty Picnic

For the past couple months I've become extremely lazy when it comes to doing my eye makeup. For quite a while it's just been a case of curling my eyelashes and putting on some mascara and then I'm good to go. However I've decided to try and put more effort from now on.

The look I created is very simple but I love the effect it has on my eyes. It just seems to brighten up my eyes and the sparkles help but me in a slightly better mood when I'm having a bad day.  All the eyeshadows I used for this look were from an elf palette called Pretty Picnic. I can't remember how much the palette cost exactly but I can definitely tell you that they were not very expensive. However they are very good quality and when used with a primer last all day on the eyes.
First I placed the lightest shade all over my eyelid using an elf eyeshadow brush. I then took the middle shade and applied it to the outer half of my lid lightly blending the two colours together. Next I took the plum shade and blended it through my crease before blending out all the edges. I finished the look off by adding the Soap & Glory thick and fast mascara.

I love how quick and easy this eye look is and it is perfect for me when I am in a rush. I will definitely be wearing this look more often from now on. With spring coming up I hope to try and branch out and wear some brighter colours on my eyes as I've always tended to wear more neutral colours.

What is your favourite eye look at the moment? Any looks you're excited to try for spring?
