Eyes in 30 Seconds

Even though applying my eye makeup has quickly become quite possibly my favourite part of my makeup routine, there are still days that I just want something quick and easy to get me out the door stat. For days when faffing around with brush and shadow just isn't going to happen, there's a few sections in my eye drawer that I gravitate towards. The theme here seems to be generally on the creamy side as I find these formulas to be the easiest to apply with maximum results- you'll even look like you've spent an age blending different shades.

On the stick front I've got two versions on rotation; Innoxa's Eye Shadow and Liner Sticks* and Rimmel's Scandaleyes Shadow Stick. I go about using both of these the same way, simply draw on to the lid then blend out with a clean finger and I'm good to go. The Innoxa offering also features an uber smudgy liner, great for smoking things up. Both of these are perfect additions to your handbag and fit the whole 'day to night' bill to a T.

The slightly more messy pot formula is a good one if you've got a smidgen more time but still don't want too much faffing. Things can get a little messy when the fingers get involved but the result is well worth it. My pick of the cream shadow bunch are Maybelline's Colour Tattoos (shown above the Barely Branded). These things are honestly the lazy girls best friend. They look amazing on the lids giving off that whole 'different colour in the crease' vibe and they stick around all day. Green beauties out their may want to check out RMS' offering. The shade shown above is Seduce, a gorgeous metallic bronze. The ingredients in this literally sound edible, coconut oil, cocoa seed butter and Rosemary extract, but I wouldn't suggest it. Not the longest lasting formula of the lot, things do start to get a little creasy on my lids, but if you're a green beaut' it may be one to check out.  Finally the cute little pot of Benefit's Creaseless Cream Shadow in Bikini tini. The formula of this is the slippiest of the lot and fairly thin. The shade is nice to brighten up the eye area if you want something natural, think of it as a lip gloss for your lids.

What's your favourite product for a speedy eye look?
