From barely there to dare to shine … in one quick step.

For daytime looks kick off with the basics … a great concealer, perfect eyebrows and flattering lashes. Then use shades of nudes and browns, maybe a soft pink, for your eyes. Grab your mask and you’re good to go. If you need to jazz it up a little, add some Provocative, Masterpiece, Bold, Dramatic, Passionate … all eye-catching shades from this useful palette.

On your beauty shopping list …

Catrice Next-Gen Nudes Pro Slim eyeshadow palette in 010 – Courage is Beauty has 14 highly pigmented eyeshadows, with matt and metallic-shimmering to endless looks. R209.95

If you know you’re not going to ever want at OTT eye look, opt for the more basic but not less beautiful Eye To Eye Eyeshadow Quad from Sorbet – the Cocoa Crush option in shades of browns and golds with the slightest of shimmers is lovely … colours go on smoothly, and last. R179.95

Then grab a trio of essentials. The Catrice Brow Comb Pro Micro Pen in Soft Brown has a narrow triple tip for gorgeous, thick eyebrows (plus it’s vegan, so brownie points, R83.95). Catrice Instant Awake Concealer in  Neutral light offers a medium coverage, has a matt finish and is moisturizing … works so well, we highly recommend this one (also vegan, R104.95). And last – but never ever least – smudge proof, volumising, defining mascara … we use Essence Bye Bye Panda Eyes mascara … the oil-free, vegan formula not only coats the lashes in black, but also wraps itself around the fine hairs like a soft film. It lasts all day and can even withstand sweat and tears. It doesn’t clump or crumble and can easily be removed with warm water … what’s not to love? R83.95
