The Two Second Eye Makeup Trick

Okay so maybe this eyeshadow look takes a bit more than 2 sec. but it's the easiest thing to do when you're in a rush and still want to add something to your look. I'm a recent eyeshadow stick convert and they're so easy to apply. They're also portable and you don't even need a brush so you can take them on the go! Here are the ones I've been loving lately.

Pixi Fairy Dust in Mocha Magic. I've never seen fairy dust, but I imagine it looks somewhat like this. This is extremely shimmery and glittery, but not so much that you look like a disco ball. There's minimal fall out and this is softly pigmented, so you could layer it on top of other eye colors. It also doubles as a cheek and brow-bone highlighter.

L'Oreal Infalliable Silkissime Powder Eyeliner Pen (not online yet). These just launched in the drugstore last week (I got mine at CVS) so I can't even find them online. As the name suggests, these are a powder eyeshadow that is applied with a spongy tip. The color is very pigmented with a hint of glitter and blending it all over your eye really does create a "smoky" look. Perfect for when you want to touch up your makeup at night and add something special.

Marc Jacobs Twinkle Pop Eye Stick in Au Revoir. This is a cream shadow that combines the best of both worlds-- a long lasting, pigmented formula with glitter that doesn't overwhelm you. These are the most long lasting of the bunch and have a nice cooling sensation when applied (don't be scared). The narrow tip also allows you to apply the color as an eyeliner if you want.

*Not pictured but I also love the Charlotte Tilbury Color Chameleon Pencils--check them out in a post here.

I hope you have a wonderful Christmas if you celebrate it and an awesome holiday series regardless of what holiday you celebrate!


  1. I love the sparkle of the Marc Jacobs eye stick. The pigmentation is perfect. Hope you had a happy Christmas.
