EOTD: Easy neutral eyes...

what do you do when you have so little time to do your eye makeup and yet, it feels like a sin to go out without any color on your lids?

use a single shade of mineral eyeshadow! minerals are pigmented and there are shades that offer a (sort of) burst of several colors, so it's not flat and boring. it's also easy to apply and blend. to make sure that the minerals stick on your lids, you can use a primer prior to application. if you don't have a primer, you can also use a sealant or spray your brush with water after picking up the pigments and then pat it on your lids.

i personally like spraying my brush with MAC Fix+, and i find my eyeshadow to last the whole day even without a primer.

here's my usual eotd using loose mineral eyeshadow:

MAC eyebrow crayon in Lingering
MAC brow set in Girl Boy
mineral e/s in Wisdom (sorry, forgot the brand)
Maybelline Impact Express Smooth Felt Liner
Maybelline Magnum mascara
MAC liner in Fascinating

Obagi Oclipse sunblock/primer
Bobbi Brown Skin foundation
Shu Uemura loose powder
MAC blush in True Romantic
NYX Summer Love l/s
Chanel Rouge Allure in Insolence

i still miss applying more colors on my lids, though.
