Some of you may know that having a 9-5 job doesn't really leave you to be experimental with makeup in the morning and i have always chosen to have an extra 15 minutes in bed instead of carefully selecting makeup to wear for the day.
I guess i have kinda fallen into a makeup rut and haven't worn eyeshadow to work in months. Now, i am not talking about super smoky eyes here, but just a soft wash of eyeshadow and some definition to either the lash line or the socket.
One thing about me is that i love my eye makeup when i go out, but i am the complete opposite when heading to work. Having the makeup collection that i do, with the huge array of shadows and finishes, makes it almost impossible to get ready on time in the morning.
I have decided that i will pre-select some subtle shades that are suitable for work, and pop them into my makeup bag instead of having to rummage around my makeup drawers! Now, i haven't chosen a huge selection, but these are the ones that i have forgotten about and also new eyeshadows in my collection.
The first set i have chosen is from the Tarte Gorgeous Getaways Collection 2013. I received this as a birthday present when i was in New York and i'm so pleased that Martha gave it to me! This is the palette in the bottom right of the set. I love how there is a blush that is complimentary to the eyeshadows.

The other palette has to be the NARS And God Created The Woman Palette, which has the ideal colours that are suitable for work. I love how there is a mixture of shimmers and mattes. The full blog post can be found HERE.
