Three Transitional Eyeshadows

So we're currently sat somewhere between summer and autumn. The heatwave doesn't seem to want to pack it's bags here in Zurich and I'm patiently waiting for it to be cool enough for my makeup not to melt off my face. Around this time of year, I like to adjust my makeup accordingly and whilst I'm definitely going for more autumnal shades, I'm still not quite ready to embrace them fully when it's 28+ÂșC outside. Enter the transitional shades, aka. the colours that bridge the gap in colour palette between summer and autumn. Here's the lowdown on three transitional eyeshadows I've been reaching for a whole lot lately!

Colourpop Supershock Eyeshadow in Wattles - If you're a fan of neutral, pinky eyeshadows then this is one to try. This eyeshadow formula walks the line between powder and cream and glides onto the lids seamlessly. It blends out into a lovely wash of pink across the lids that I think pairs really well with a nude or a brown lipstick. It's one of those shades that takes you from summer to autumn, depending what kind of lip option you pair it with. So affordable and fab quality!

H&M Colour Essence Eye Cream in Countess - (Can't seem to find this online, have a look in-store!). If you've been reading my blog for a while, you might remember this eye shadow from either last year or the beginning of this year. I was initially a little disappointed by the cream eyeshadows H&M carried, but this one was a shade I continued using. It looks like a typical beige eyeshadow in the pot, but on the eyes it's such a gorgeous warm light brown. It pairs really well with a darker brown lipstick for more of a grungey look - one of my favourites for autumn!

Wet 'n Wild Colouricon Eyeshadow in Nutty - If you fancy going back to darker eyeshadows, but you want to wait out this very summery weather, then this is a great option. It's another shade that looks underwhelming in the pan, but completely transforms on the lid. It's a beautiful taupey bronze shade, that you can pair with a nude lip for an wearable day look or smoke out with darker shadow for a more evening-y eye. It's nude enough to look good in summer and bronzey enough to be an autumnal shade - all for under a pound!

I'm definitely very much looking forward to autumn and to be honest, I'm already eyeing up the deep berry shades, despite the still-very-summery weather! Are you looking forward to autumn? What are some of your favourite eyeshadows?

Don't forget to follow along!

  4. I stumbled upon The Wet n Wild ones last week, what a coincidence. I love Burberry Pale Barley for this weather (actually, all year around).

  5. I haven't tried any of the H&M cream eyeshadows yet, the shade is lovely! I really want to get myself a brown liquid lipstick too so I can give the grunge look a go, it's just so hard to pick a shade! I am actually looking forward to Autumn this year (surprisingly haha). For Autumn I really like the Rimmel scandaleyes eyeshadow sticks or liquids, they come in a wide range of shades, and they have so much depth that you don't need to pair them with a crease shade :) xx

  6. Great shades! I've been wearing a lot of warm browns and rose gold shadows lately, too x
