Two Fall Eye Shadow Looks

It's been a long time since I've done a makeup post here - I think the last one was actually a tutorial on how I fake false lashes!! Ever since discovering shadow sticks and how easy it is to create any type of eye shadow look - I've been almost exclusively using them! I thought it would be fun to share a couple easy looks I created using only shadow sticks! What I love most about using eye shadow sticks is how easy they are to apply and blend - there's no need to use a brush, you just swipe, blend  with your fingers and go!  I've come to really love Bobbi Brown Shadow Sticks, but NARS is coming in very close with the color selection and how creamy and rich the colors are! Fair warning - I took selfies for this so you're going to see a lot of my head!!  Here are my favorite colors for the different brands I've tried and a few that I will be picking up soon to try!

For those of you that are no fuss makeup fans then I can't recommend shadow sticks enough - so easy to use! Here are two of my current fall eye shadow looks! 

Copper & Dark Green

This has become my go to look for the fall. I start with the NARS belle-lle (copper color) in the crease & then use GoldStone (green) from Bobbi Brown on my lower lid. I blend the the copper color into the dark green and it gives my eyes a nice pop! 

Dusty Mauve & Copper
If I had to pick my absolute favorite combination this would definitely be the one. dusty mauve from Bobbi Brown was the first shadow stick that I picked out and I've talked about it on the blog a few times! It's the most versatile color and depending on the color of your eyes it will change the appearance of how mauve-y it gets! The dusty mauve goes into the crease and then I blend it down. I apply the Copper color to my lower lids and blend that into where the dusty mauve starts. 

I also apply a grey eyeliner to my top & bottom lash lines to complete the look. Using only these shadow sticks, it takes me about 2 minutes to complete my eye makeup and the best part is how long they stay on. It's long wear to the max - I can go through an entire work day, workout at lunch & have an event at night and not need to touch up my eye makeup at all! I will admit that I do not like using the super dark colors because those are a little harder to blend, at least they are for me. I like to stick to colors that are not matte, have a little bit of shimmer to them and are creamy in consistency so that I can blend with my fingers & also blend it away if I mess up! 
Do you like to use shadow sticks? How long does your makeup routine take?

  16. So pretty! I got a matte mini of the BB stick a while ago and it was kind of hard to blend, but I really want to try one of the shimmer versions. I love when you can just quickly swipe on one color and go!

  26. I am totally buying these!! I have a few NARS eyeshadows and I love them but I do feel like sometimes it takes forever to create the look that I want. Bobbi Brown is awesome too. :-) You look beautiful in all of these photos too! :-)

  34. I love these looks! You are gorgeous! Sadly I have the exact same eye makeup routine. I really need to switch it up every now and then

  35. I bought the mauve shadow stick after you mentioned it a few months ago. I like it but it's a lot for me (I am a bit paler). I have blue eyes so it does make them pop - especially when I wear my glasses. You are so right about the application - swipe and go! I usually stick to neutrals so I am glad you mentioned the Laura Mercier in the brown color, I may have to try it. I travel a lot for work and I love that these are easy to travel with!

  36. I have never used a shadow stick, I may have to! These look fabulous!

  37. I haven't tried many shadow sticks but I hear the Laura Mercier ones are really nice. The one I have tried was through Ipsy and it was Trestique. I actually liked it. Trestique was at Gen Beauty and I was able to get a mini shadow/lip kit so I will be trying it out. Thanks for sharing. I love hearing about quick and easy makeup since it takes me forever in the morning! Even for simple looks!

  38. I've never used shadow sticks before, but they sound super convent, especially these days when I don't have much time to do a full on makeup look! I love the looks you've created, absolutely beautiful! Thanks for sharing, gorgeous, and I hope you're having a great week so far!
