As much as I love a blue or green smokey eye in the evenings, I like to keep it pretty safe during the day. I have two looks I always gravitate towards; a gold all over the lid with a red-brown in the crease or a simple matte eye with liner and loads of mascara. In 2013 I was completely obsessed with Nars Ondine eyeshadow and wore it non-stop throughout the whole of autumn and winter that year, but as soon as the warm weather kicked in, I tossed it to the back of my makeup stash.
Lately I've been trying to clear my makeup drawers of things I no longer use and came across this gem again. To be completely honest it's pretty similar to MAC Satin Taupe. I like to describe it as a mushroom-y mauve with gold shimmer. It's really buttery which makes it super easy to blend and as you'd expect from Nars, it's very pigmented. I've been wearing this again and I honestly don't understand how I stayed without it for so long. It's such an easy shade to throw on and it's really versatile. Sometimes I'll wear it on its own with a bit of mascara and other times I'll go all out and add a brown in the crease, a cat eye flick and tons of mascara.
And let's all ignore the fact that I've had this for three years LOOL Should probably get a new one but as long as it doesn't smell funny or feel weird, I'm gonna keep using it. Please don't judge!
