After sharing with you many dramatic or fun makeup looks, today I decided to show you my 'go to' look which I've been wearing for the last few weeks nearly every day when I was going for the 'more polished' look. It's not my everyday look because it does require more than 10 minutes and on weekdays I rarely have more than that to do my makeup but if I have the time that's what I'm going for. Simple yet elegant neutral eye look which can be paired with any lipstick and kept subtle for a day look or made a bit more glamorous for the evening.
For this look I used my Stila palette which has been my favourite in the last few weeks and I'm absolutely loving shade Kitten for this makeup look but it can be achieved with any neutral palette as it's very basic and simple.
The "secret" to this look is to use matte brown shades in the crease and sparkly light shade all over the lid, simple!
Puppy - in the crease and above as a transitional shade.
Espresso - to define the outer corner and crease.
Kitten - all over the lid and inner corner.
On my lower lid I lined my lashes with Espresso and blended it with Puppy.
Under my brows I placed the matte cream shade for a subtle highlight.
For this look I added a black eyeliner and false lashes but for a day look I skip that and line my lashes with Espresso and apply mascara.
I also always line my waterline with nude pencil to make my eyes look a bit bigger and more awake.

What I like the most about this eye makeup look is, that it goes with any lipstick so it's so easy to change it slightly and make it more appropriate for any occasion just by switching the colour on my lips.
I decided to show you three options which I've been enjoying wearing lately.
On my lips Wet n Wild Mega Last Matte Lip Cover in Smokin' Hot Pink.
On my lips Sephora Cream Lip Stain in Marvelous Mauve.
On my lips Essence lip liner in In the Nude and Longlasting Lipstick in Barely There.
Which lipstick option you like the best? What is your 'go to' makeup look?
PS. Wishing you all a wonderful, relaxed Easter break with lots of sunshine and chocolate eggs :) x
