Falling for neutrals with Yves Rocher

Neutral title

As much as I hate to admit it, summer is almost over.  There’s just over a month to go before we hit fall, but fret not, with the end of the summer approaching that means that summer makeup is transitioning into more neutral colours, which happen to be my personal fave.

I love a good neutral eye.  I have so many eyeshadow palettes, but I always gravitate towards the tried and true – browns and taupes.  So imagine my excitement when I opened Yves Rocher’s new Quad Eyeshadow Sumptuous Color in neutrals.

Yves Rocher is releasing six different palettes next month designed with a smoky eye in mind.  Used dry, these shadows are ultra-pigmented for a satin or matte effect.  When wet, the shimmer and satin shades turn metallic and the matte shades become dense for a more intense look.  The colours are infused with rice extract and can be applied to create a variety of different looks.

I received two of the palettes – 06. Brun Incandescent and 03. Aquatique Subtil – as well as their new Volume Elixir mascara, which has hibiscus peptides that reinforce and repair lashes.  I have tried Yves Rocher’s mascaras before and they are some of the best out there in my opinion.  Both of these products come in a gorgeous rose gold package, which makes them uber-inticing to use.
Steps 1. First place a primer all over your lid area then fill in your brows. Then, with the lightest shimmery shade, place this along your brow bone acting as your highlight.

2. With the lighter of the two matte brown shades and a fluffy crease brush, apply this colour underneath your highlight and into your crease, acting as your transition shade.

3. With the darkest matte brown and a dense eyeshadow brush, pat this on your lid area.  Then, using a fluffy crease brush, blend this lightly into your crease.

4. Skip the eyeliner and add a couple coats of mascara and then pop on some falsies for drama.

5. To finish, line your lower lash line with the darkest brown and then add a couple coats of mascara.

Final 1

And voila!  The easiest brown smoky eye ever.   I haven’t yet tried the blue palette, but the brown is a must-have for anyone.  Same goes for the mascara. Make sure you head on over to Yves Rocher in September to pick these up, you won’t regret it!
