A Stormy Goldmine.

I decided to share my favourite smokey eye with you guys :) I absolutely love gold eyeshadow, I think because I have green eyes it seems to work really well.  After many reviews a few months back I decided to purchase two of the Sleek I-Divine Palettes from Superdrug.
I am a big fan of the Urban Decay Naked Palettes and Urban Decay eyeshadows in general and I was looking for a cheaper alternative. Along with the two palettes and a L'oreal Colour Infalliable eyeshadow I created this look :)
Debenhams Online - £13.05(10% off)

First up I primed my eyes with Mac Paint Pot in Bare Study, although I don't find it to have much colour payoff it is a great base for keeping my eyeshadow on.
Sleek I Divine Eyeshadow Palettes, Superdrug, £7.99 Each

The two palettes I used from Sleek were the "Oh So Special" and "Storm" Palettes.  If I was to only choose one it would definitely be the Storm Palette.  The only downside to the palettes is that they do not come with eyeshadow names, however I will do my best to give a description of each colour and which palette it came from.

Maybelline " The Falsies" Mascara
Maybelline "Eye Studio Lasting Drama" Gel Liner

Last but not least I finished the lid off with this stunning eyeshadow which is the L'oreal infalliable eyeshadow in the colour Goldmine.  It is a gold sparkle eyeshadow and is perfect for creating a party look along with a red lip.  I first tried the infalliable eyeshadows when they were released, I bought the L'oreal voluminous mascara(one of my favourites) and got an infalliable eyeshadow free.  I decided to choose the colour Purple Obsession and was really disappointed by it as it looked beautiful in the jar but looked black when i swatched it, however I tried them again and I absolutely love goldmine :)
