the perfect everyday eye palette

Considering i've never been one for eyeshadow, let alone neutral offerings, even I'm pretty suprised at how in love I am with the most easiest of them all, customisable in variations of 3 or 6, Laura Mercier offers the best of pigmentation and ease of application in palette form.

I collected the first of the collection from Space NK a little while ago now, Canyon Clay (far right), the most perfect golden bronze shadow, beautiful all over the lid for a subtle glow or used on the very outer corner to add some warmth and depth to the overall look.

Transition shadows are somewhat in my eyes, quite hard to come by, being the neutral shades that they are, its all about mimicking that shadow you would naturally create to achieve a more contoured look.
The middle of the three shadows, the perfect warm tone beige, Warm Sands is just the most perfect shadow for the job, the sateen formulation of these shadows look rather glittery in the pan but once applied to the skin transform into more of a matte finish, which makes these incredibly easy foolproof even for the eyeshadow novice!

The most neutral of this trio Sparkling Dew is just the most effortless vanilla shade, applied all over the lid for that wide-eyed awake look, I also use this in the tearduct and under the brow bone to add a very subtle highlight for my everyday look!

Blendable with minimal fuss, pigmented with one application and some of the most beautiful shade ranges, Laura Mercier has the formulation of shadows down to a T & I for sure will be adding more to my ever growing collection!

Have you tried any of them, let me know your thoughts below, Lots of love, Frankie xo
