Five Most Used: Eye Make-Up

Five Most Used Eye Makeup
Following on from my Five Most Used Base Products, today I'm moving onto eye make-up, where I'll be discussing the five items which feature most frequently in my eye make-up routines. If you're a regular reader of my blog you'll no doubt recognise a few of these from my FOTD posts as I do tend to fall back on them quite frequently. You'll notice I've not included any eyeshadow palettes here, as I'm planning to do a separate post on my most-used palettes.
Most Used Eye Makeup
MUA Pro Brow Kit | This is the only brow kit I've ever owned as it's lasted me literally two years so far; I wouldn't say I'm a massive fan of it actually as the brush fell apart pretty quickly, I have to mix the two shades to get something like the right shade for my brows, and the highlight is several shades darker than my actual skin-tone, meaning it goes unused. However, I use this kit pretty much every day to define my brows so it has well and truly earned its place in this post!
Accessorize Volumising Mascara | I have a horrible feeling this mascara has been discontinued as I can't find it on Superdrug's website, which is a shame as I do really, really like it. It's exactly what I look for in a mascara, coating my lashes evenly without clumping and giving me a good dose of volume. Length isn't something I particularly look for in a mascara as my lashes are pretty long as it is, but this really makes the most of what I have. Also, the packaging is leopard print.
Stila Smudge Stick in 'Damsel' | This retractable liner came with my In The Light palette and I've actually almost finished it which makes me sad as I don't want to splash out £14 on a new one. I do really love this for a subtle way of defining my lashline, though; the deep brown isn't as harsh as black, and despite being called a Smudge Stick I find this is pretty budge-proof once it's set and easily lasts through a shift at work for me.
Maybelline EyeStudio Mono Eyeshadow in 610 'Silken Taupe'* | I tend to favour palettes over single eyeshadows but I do make a conscious effort to use my collection of individual shadows at least once or twice per week. 'Silken Taupe' is the perfect neutral shadow which looks lovely on its own on the lid meaning it's super quick to apply. It can also be incorporated readily into a smokey eye, making it quite a versatile shadow.
No7 Stay Perfect Eyeshadow in 50 'Tender' | This is another single shadow I make quite a lot of use out of, I like 'Tender' for minimal make-up days as it really brightens the eye area without being too obvious or harsh. A peachy shade with a golden shimmer, it actually reminds me of NARS 'Deep Throat' blusher in eyeshadow form - it's easy to wear and super flattering on my pale skin.
