One Wash Wonder Eyeshadows

One wash wonder eyeshadows

My everyday eye makeup routine is pretty simple; usually a shimmery taupe or brown swept across the lid and a darker matte hue pushed into the crease for a bit of definition. But sometimes it calls for an even quicker simple look and that's when I go for a few trusted one wash wonder eyeshadows. Super low maintenance yet really flattering (and you can stay in bed longer). Triple win!

A well loved classic, and for good reason. This twist up eyeshadow stick of 2014 blogger fame couldn't be more flattering or easier to apply. It's quite a unique pinky silvery shade which somehow looks different on everyone. On me it looks quite taupey with a hint of lilac and it really brings out my brown eyes. While every brand these days has their own version of the ByTerry Ombré Blackstars, nothing quite rivals them, especially this dreamy shade.

Not quite as shimmery as Misty Rock, this nude eyeshadow stick from Clinique is great for lazy days and a messy bun. It's a no fuss formula and it lasts all day without looking overdone. It's especially nice when paired with brown mascara for proper off duty model vibes (yeah, I can wish).

I'm quite a cream shadow convert as I find the colour pay off to be awesome and they're great as a base to powder shadows. This cream shadow from Illamasqua doesn't look like much in the pot but once patted onto my eyelids it really comes to life. It's a pearlescent creamy shade which can easily hide a late night and too much pizza. Yep, Monday mornings look much perkier and almost bearable. Almost.

Quite easily a staple that everyone should own, Pale Barley is a stunning neutral taupey brown. Yes, another taupe I know but if you only own one then it should be this iconic shade from Burberry. It's one that I turn to when I'm maybe feeling uninspired makeup wise or if I'm wearing a bright lip and want something quite simple yet flattering. It's slightly shimmery and is well pigmented. One warning, you'll want to buy the entire Burberry line after trying this!

Slightly cheating as there's more than one shadow here but I'm obsessed with this palette so it had to be included, soz. Super pigmented and more buttery than butter (almost), any of the shades in the Cocoa Blend palette are awesome on their own. I particularly love Full Ganache, a golden shimmer, Subtle Blend, a rich brown and Sweeter End, an eye-opening pinky lilac shade. 

Another classic rich taupey brown, this is so pigmented and has a great amount of shine to it. It almost looks like a wet and dry shadow as its so striking, Woodwinked has to be my top eyeshadow pick from MAC. Definitely one to swatch next time you're at a counter.

These are a few of my favourite one wash wonder eyeshadows but I'd love to know what yours are too so please let me know in the comments. Did you see any of yours here?
