NOTD and 1 minute eye look

Featuring Barry M Mushroom.
This is one of my go-to shades ever, i love taupes and dark nails and honestly, i own Chanel Particuliere which looks exactly the same on the nails with no difference whatsoever,  and it chips on me within 24 hours so i reach out for this one way more often. Maybe i will do a review on both of them swatched side by side. I think that Barry M is amazing at duplicating the "it" colours that come out every season, with lower price and better quality.

This is my go to look when i want a quite defined, messy but still made up eye if i have 1 minute to get ready.
Products used:

  • MAC Cork
  • MAC coffee eye pencil
  • White shimmery eyeshadow from the Dior palette in Endless shine for the inner tearducts´
  • Maybelline Lash stiletto mascara (It´s an okay everyday mascara, not dark enough for me but lengthens well)
  • Chanel Amethyst eyeshadow
  • MAC #227 #219 brushes   
What i do is: 
  •  place some highlight colour on my inner tearducts with the MAC #219 to help brighten up the eye
  • sweep MAC cork all over the lid with the #227
  • trace a thick line of pencil and smudge it with the same #219 
  • Apply the black Chanel eyeshadow on top of the liner to set it and darken it even more
  • line the waterline and place some shadows to set it, to avoid racoon eyes
  • Apply mascara and done!
It honestly takes me less than 1 minute to do and i love the results.

What is the makeup that is failproof for you, or that you do when you have no time at all?


  1. I love this color! Unfortunately, Barry M nail polishes aren't available where I live, but my Chanel Particuliere with a good top coat works for me! =P

  4. Thank you so much, and thank you for telling me about the hush highlighter, I dont want to look orange haha. Maybe shell would be better :)

  5. The makeup and nail polish really looks great for casual daily look. My go-to colors nowadays are more into corals and i dont know why hehe. The nail polish really reminded me of mushrooms:-)
