Its All About The Eyes - My Favourite Eye Products

I am all about the eyes right now when I apply my makeup, so I thought I would let you know about some eye products that I really like at the moment. These are my go to products for an easy to apply casual look.
Its All About The Eyes - My Favourite Eye Products
Eye Primer - Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion (£16 for 10ml)
Eye primer is a must for me as I have oily eyelids and I find that when I use Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion even cream shadows stay put and do not crease.
 Max Factor Excess Shimmer Copper
Cream Shadow - Max Factor Excess Shimmer (£7.99 for 7g)
This product is so easy to apply with my finger rather than messing around with a brush and I find that a sweep over the eyelids is sufficient for a easy, but great look through the day and night.  I have the shades Copper and Bronze.
Smashbox Brow Tech Gloss Stick in Brunette
Eyebrow Pencil - Smashbox Brow Tech Gloss Stick (£16.50 for 0.2g)
My eyebrows are not of the Cara Delevigne variety.  Mine are the opposite of full and thick, they are sparse and faint, so an eyebrow pencil is a must to fill them in.  The Smashbox Brow Tech Gloss Stick has a very smooth, creamy consistency so is easy to apply and it stays in place without smudging.  There is a brush at the end of the pencil to tidy up your brows which is handy.  Mine is in the shade Brunette.  I bought this as part of a Sephora haul that I posted about here.
Maybelline The Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara
Mascara - Maybelline The Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara (this is currently £5.99 in Boots).
This is my new favourite mascara (and I must have about 20 in my stash).  I am so glad that I picked this up in LA.  It promises false lashes and I really think that it delivers.  I cannot apply false lashes to save my life, so this mascara is a great alternative.  It definitely lengthens my lashes and it doesn’t clump or flake or leave smudges on my eyelids.  I bought this as part of a drug store haul from LA which I posted about here.
Charlotte Tilbury Rock N Kohl Iconic Liquid Eye Pencil in Barbarella Brown
Eye Pencil - Charlotte Tilbury Rock N Kohl Iconic Liquid Eye Pencil (£19 for 1.2g)
This dark brown pencil has a creamy consistency that glides across my lid and does not drag.  It stays in place and makes eye liner easy to apply.  The shade is Barbarella Brown.

So that's my eye routine, none of the products are overly expensive and are available on the highstreet.  They are all easy to use and give great results. Considering I have hooded, oily eyelids, I love the fact that these products don't smudge and disappear throughout the day.

What are your favourite eye products?

I bought these with my own money.
