2-Minute Shimmering Eyes

by Sarah

Hi beauties!! This is somewhat an unplanned post but I got so many compliments on this eye makeup I had on few days ago, I thought I may as well do a post and show you just how easy it is to achieve :)

It’s no secret that I live and breathe makeup and although I enjoy all aspects of makeup application, it’s also a fact that our daily hustle and bustle doesn’t always allow us to sit back and enjoy the process. However, practicality is key and you don’t have to spend hours and use countless number of products to achieve pretty looks.

This look is a perfect example…

Beauty Point Of View

2-minute Shimmering Eyes

For this look I used: NYX jumbo pencil in Sparkle Leopard + Ardell Demi Wispies false lashes + Rimmel ScandalEyes Waterproof Kajal Pencil in Brown (optional).

NYX jumbo pencil in Sparkle Leopard / Rimmel ScandalEyes Kajal Liner in Brown / Ardell Demi Wispie lashes

The star of this look is undoubtedly the NYX jumbo pencil in Sparkle Leopard. It’s a pretty gold/bronze color with silver sparkles throughout. The shimmer/sparkle combo instantly adds a pretty glisten to the eyes.

**Check out my review/swatch post of all the NYX jumbo pencils I have HERE.


1. I lined my top and bottom lash lines with the Sparkle Leopard pencil, smudged with my fingers and re-applied a second coat for intensity. *As I mentioned in my full review of these NYX jumbo pencils, they’re better used as a base for eyeshadows due to their soft texture; but I find the lighter shimmer colors such as the Sparkle Leopard hold up well as liners with couple of coats.

2. I applied Ardell demi wispie lashes very close to my natural lash line; and one coat of black mascara on my bottom lashes.

3. Optional: I applied Rimmel ScandalEyes Brown pencil in my tight line (inner rim of my top lash line) to darken the lash line so the false lashes look more natural. You can most certainly leave this step out or use the dark brown liner to line above the lash line or darken the bottom lash line ,if you want the look to be stronger ;)

And that’s pretty much it! So, whether you pair this look with nude lips for day wear as I did or add a rich bold pout for a sparkling evening look, it’s a simple yet effective look and no one will know it only took minutes to create ;)

You can purchase NYX, Ardell and Rimmel products at drugstores or online.

What do you guys think of this look? What’s you time saving go-to look on those crazy busy days? xx

This is such a beautiful and simplistic eye look! I will definitely be trying this out soon! Any suggestions on specific lip products to use to complete this look?

My go-to quick look is some all-over color and highlight, paired with our favorite Lancome Hypnose Drama mascara for my eyes! Finish with a great lip gloss or balm, and I am ready to run out the door!

Thanks Sydney! Your go-to look sounds beautiful, a fresh face is always nice. With this shimmering eye, I used the Girlactik nude lipstick/gloss duo I did a review on few posts back. It complemented it really nicely cos all the colors had a warm peachy undertone. But you can pair these eyes with rich dark lips as well which would make a great contrast ;) xx

I love this look, it’s so pretty! I usually just put mascara on when I’m short on time but this is a great trick to add that extra something. Gonna check out your jumbo pencil post and check out the other colors. thank you!
