Warm Brown Shadows aka The Moody Smokey Eye

Call me boring but when it comes to eye makeup nothing beats a lazy - slightly messy warm toned smokey eye. As much as I would love to be super creative and rock a colourful winged liner or dramatic cut crease every day of the week, it's just not my style. I love anything quick that cuts down on my time getting ready and these shadows are perfect for that, especially creams as they're just so effortless! As we head into Spring and Summer I'm definitely going to be busting out my shadow sticks and those fudgy shades that just scream chic! Who doesn't want that?

Zoeva Cocoa Blend Eyeshadow Palette | This palette really kicked off my love for warm-toned eyeshadows. It's perfect for creating something simple or really intense. I love the shade variety and formula wise it has some of the smoothest, easy to blend eyeshadows that I've tried! My go to look is to apply Substitute For Love and Freshly Toasted all over my lids, up to the crease and blended on the lower lashline for the ultimate blown out caramel eye!

KIKO Colour Crush Cream Eyeshadow |  06 | I haven't been crazy about shimmery eyeshadows for a long time now but if it's a gorgeous bronzey shade like this, I can't resist! A couple years ago I raved about this KIKO formula and it's still one of my absolute favourites! It's really hard to find a decent cream formula under £10 but this range provides a smooth finish, intense pigment and amazing staying power. They're a must-have! 

MAC Pro Longwear Waterproof Colour Stick | Tea Leaves | Unfortunately, this range was continued not long after I discovered them which is such a shame as the formula is beaut but there are a ton of brands who do similar products (Bobbi Brown, KIKO, Charlotte Tilbury). For me, eyeshadow sticks make doing my eye makeup a total breeze and it's so easy to amp up the intensity. This particular shade has a gorgeous bronzey, J-LO-esque finish. Wow, another bronze eyeshadow - groundbreaking.

Natural Collection Eyeshadow - Milk Chocolate | I always worry that people think I'm a makeup snob because I often rave about high-end brands but I love a beauty bargain as much as the next blogger! I saw a YouTuber using this constantly at one point (sorry I can't remember who), and I remember thinking it was such a pretty everyday shade! It reminds me of something like MAC Soft Brown and is perfect for adding a bit of shape to the eye or adding some warmth. It's a gorgeous matte pinky-brown milk chocolate shade - the name really suits this one! 

MAC Eyeshadows | Soba & Saddle | It wouldn't be right if I didn't include my beloved duo now would it? I think everyone needs a little compact like this with a couple of warm brown shades, you just never feel stuck and that's what I love. Soba is a really pretty medium brown with gold undertone which looks stunning on the lids and Saddle is a much richer rusty shade that gives that gorgeous finish that really emphasizes hazel eyes. Lush!


What are your favourite warm-toned eyeshadows?
