Cream eyeshadow sticks are the perfect way to add instant colour to your eyes with no fuss as they can be easily blended out using your fingers or a quick swipe of a brush. The By Terry Ombre Blackstar in Misty Rock is one of my go-to options as the lilac-brown hue can be used under other eyeshadow as a base, it doesn't budge and can be used on it's own to add definition to the eyes. Another shadow stick favourite is the Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleon in Bronzed Garnet and these two once paired create a long lasting, fool-proof eye look.
Probably the most underrated eyeshadows on the market, the H&M High Impact Eyeshadows are amazing single eyeshadows that come in a range of highly pigmented colours ranging from soft shimmers to matte browns. Paradise Lost is the perfect all over lid colour that brightens the eye area and highlights where necessary.
Okay, so the MAC Loose Pigmented in Tan isn't the most convenient to use if you're on the go, but it is one that- once mastered- can be an easy way to spruce up a dull looking eye look. This intense shimmer can be applied using a wet brush to give off the best pigment and, applied to the centre of your lid, can make for an effortless statement eye.
