The holidays are truly the most wonderful time of the year. It's about family, great friends and togetherness.
That being said, the holidays are also the most hectic time of the year. What better way to get yourself out the door than to work easy to use, high-quality and affordable cosmetics into your morning routine?
For this eye I'm going to be using all products from Jafra Cosmetics (with a little help from Urban Decay Primer Potion as my base).
Some of the products on my eye that I'm using today are shown above - High-Pigment Eyeshadows ($12.00 each for .05oz) in Transformer, Bronze, Purple and Blue; Cream Eyeliner($11.50 each for .10oz) in Brown and Black; Escalash Mascara in Black ($13.00 for .28oz).
Starting off with the swatches:
(L-R: Cream Eyeliners in Black & Brown, Eyeshadows in Transformer, Bronze, Purple, Blue)
The liners were really creamy and easy to use along the eye. There was no dryness to them at all and they didn't drag and skip. More importantly, I was able to line my waterline with no irritation what-so-ever.
The shadows are in a sifter, and that made it hard to get a lot of product out. That being said, you don't NEED a lot of product from this to achieve a hyper-vibrant shade that is easy to glide along your lid. The swatches above are done dry with no primer.
The mascara was my favorite part out of all of these products. Escalash is said to be a clump-free formula that conditions lashes. As you can see from the eye look shown below (of which I used no mascara primer or lash curler) it does a great job in just ONE coat!
For the eye look I used all of the shadows except the most vibrant, which is the blue. I placed Bronze all over the lid and Purple in the crease and outer V. Transformer was used at the inner corners of the eye and to highlight. After I lined with the Cream Eyeliner in Brown for the top AND bottom of my eye. The look was finished off with one coat of the Escalash Mascara in black.
This is a quick, fun, and SIMPLE look for any day or evening and is still festive enough for holiday!
