♥ Review: Natural Eyes with Urban Decay & Benefit ♥


Most days, I don't have much time to do my makeup. In the mornings I have to wake up early and go to work, and being in a school means I'd better avoid heavy makeup looks - I'll leave the tons of highligther to my teenage girls students! So today I'm sharing with you the eye makeup duo that has become my favourite for low key makeup days.
At Christmas, my dad got me the Roller Lash mascara by Benefit and the 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencil in Underground by Urban Decay - well, he came with me to Sephora and waited for me pick what I wanted basically. We all know that dads are not the best with makeup haha! I picked these two products with the idea of using them together, and this is what I've been doing recently. I use the Urban Decay pencil as eyeliner and under the eye. Brown liner looks much more natural than black, and the sparkles in this particular shade Underground make the eyes pop and catch the light nicely. 

Roller Lash is my favourite mascara ever, and you must understand why! It makes the lashes quite long and separates them really well. I love the fact that it's not clumpy at all - thin plastic brushes are great if you don't want a lot of thickness. In these photos I am wearing only one coat, and this is all that's needed for natural lashes that still have some length and volume. 
To finish off the look I just added a light gold eyeshadow on the brow bone, which is a must-do if you want a bright, healthy-looking finish.

Slightly off-topic, but to complete the look I am wearing the NYX Lingerie liquid lipstick in the shade Teddy, mainly because it matches the jumper I was wearing. I wouldn't wear this shade on a school day! [Read a full review of the NYX Lingerie lipsticks here.]
If you want to go for an all natural look, a nude lipstick would be perfect. But with such a toned-down eye makeup, you could go with bright red lipstick and look fabulous!

  1. I always wear black liner, I am not one for the natural eye. And I own Roller Lash as well, but I am not convinced. It clumpsmhorribly whenever I try to build it up.

    1. It's a shame Roller Lash makes your lashes clumpy, that's surprising! Maybe you have to be quick and build it up before it dries out. xx
