NARS eyeshadow - Ashes to Ashes

NARS ashes to ashes

NARS ashes to ashes swatched
NARS single eyeshadow £18 from counters and online

Back at Christmas the lovely Laura and I (from A Scottish Lass) organised a beauty blogger secret santa, as is our tradition every year we swapped with each other.  Well,  Laura clearly blew the budget as she bought me a NARS single eyeshadow, lucky me!

The shade she chose is 'Ashes to Ashes' - it's a near-matte brown (it has a subtle silk sheen) which is a gorgeous soft, gentle brown.  It works beautifully all over the lid for a simple look, or as a base for a neutral or smokey-neutral look, and it works well as a transition shade.  It's lasting power is fantastic, if you plonk it on top of some primer, and a creme eyeshadow it'll last all day.  

My favourite way to wear this is by itself (as in, with no other eyeshadows), I team it up with my classic Chanel liquid liner and some decent mascara and voila, my makeup is done!  I have been wearing a lot less makeup recently, I've hardly worn foundation in weeks, instead I opt for brows and eyes with some lip balm for a simple wearable day look - I could do a post on my morning makeup routine for work if you like?

What's your favourite NARS single eyeshadow?

  3. I love these sorts of shades all over the lid. I don't have any single eyeshadows from Nars, but the Kalahari duo has stolen my heart x

  4. I've yet to try this eyeshadow but it looks beautiful. I think I'd wear it the same way you do- by itself. I love the simplicity of that because I'm always on the go recently and it helps save time. Thanks for the great post, I may have to go out and get this :P
