Single eyeshadow FOTD

Sometimes I just can't be bothered spending a lot of time blending out various eyeshadows to create a nice eye look. Sometimes all I want is a single wash of colour on my lids, and this look I'm showing you here is from one of such "sometimes". I wore it Saturday when I was a bit time poor but of course still wanted to look decent.

The colour I used is Makeupgeek eyeshadow in Moondust. A while back I did a post on what are good eyeshadows to use for a single colour smokey eye. And while the eyeshadow I used here was not in that original post (mainly because I didn't own it then!), it does meet the same basic principles - it has shimmer, it's a mid toned shade, and is multidimensional enough to not need other shadows with it.

The key is applying it liberally all over the lid and up to the crease (I also applied a bit on my lower lash line), and then blending out any harsh lines around the edges.

Here's the full product breakdown.
  • Maybelline Superstay Better Skin foundation in Sand
  • Maybelline Superstay Powder in Sand
  • Illamasqua Blush in Lover
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Medium Brown
  • Makeupgeek eyeshadow in Moondust
  • Revlon Customeyes mascara
  • MAC lipstick in Costa Chic

Are there any eyeshadows you like to use for a single wash of colour?


  1. I really like the Maybelline Color Tattoos for single-colour looks - they work so well applied and blended out with a finger! (Except then you have a dirty finger. But no dirty brush!)

  2. I need to add Moondust to my MUG wishlist. You look great!

  3. In love with the shadow and lipstick shade! You look gorgeous :) Love your posts, i just followed through bloglovin!

  4. I love to use Mac Patina all over the lid and blend it out. I need to try this Makeupgeek eyeshadow as well :) x
