I have always been terrible at eye shadow. I have quite hooded lids so creating that desired smokey eye has never really worked for me, my go to look is a light brown all over the lid and then a darker brown sort of swept into my crease and slightly above to create some kind of definition and then finish it off with lashings of mascara and an inner eye highlight! When I first discovered colour tattoos I was very excited as I had always wanted a MAC paint pot (had one, got stolen, but that's another story) so I was definitely up for trying a cheaper alternative. 

The first two I here are Timeless Black and Immortal Charcoal are the darkest two I own and are perfect bases for dramatic looks or to layer a dark eye shadow on top. The thing I really love about these cream shadows is that they dry quickly (but not so quick that you can't blend) and they make the pigment of further shadows really pop & last for ages! 

The second two shades I have are Eternal Gold and Eternal Silver which are perfect for layering with lighter shades or just all over the lid for a gorgeous shimmer and finished with some liner and mascara. They are incredibly pigmented and last all day long with little to no creasing. 

Here are the swatches to the four colour tattoos that I own, I did used to have 6 shades but sold two as I never used them, one was a deep purple and the other a bright blue! Just minutes after taking this photo I went to wash it off my arm.. and it was extremely stubborn! I had to use my Liz Earle cleanser to get them off. I love these as a base for my eye shadows and also on their own, really handy little pots that last an insane amount of time! I recently found a website that stocks a whole host of colours from pastel to dark, check it out here.
