EOTD - Gunmetal smokey eye!

Hi lovelies!

I hope everyone had a great weekend? I've had rather a busy one so this post will be short, simple and sweet, so I can jump into bed and re-read my favourite book, The Host, for a bit before dropping off to sleep! :)

I had a friend's birthday drinks last night so I kept my make up simple with a gunmetal smokey eye, and some nude lipstick. Here are some quick snaps, I applied the sparkly silver from the Essence Denim quad over an Essence Stay All Day shadow in Rock Chic (which I specifically bought as I thought it would be a gorgeous smokey eye base). I took these photos when I got home about eight hours after applying it, and dancing and running in the they're not as pristine as when I first applied it (as evident by the patchiness on the closed eyes photos). On the whole though, they did quite well!

I will post the specific shades used tomorrow when I can get my brain to cooperate. Have a great week, everyone!

Much love,


  1. Coco I love these colours on you! And even after 8 hours of wear they have come out still looking amazing. And for a cheaper shadow I think these are a clear winner. Love this look Coco very pretty. :D

  2. Sorry I just had to add, yay I got my picture back! :P

  3. Thanks for the follow :) I follow your blog.
    Lovely pigments in this eye shadow.

  4. That's an absolutely gorgeous shade! I am a big gunmetal fan, it is such a versatile and flattering colour. X
