No 17 Autumn Collection – Make Up Crush of the Week

by Aly Hazlewood on October 21, 2011

So my make up crush of the week is No 17′s new Autumn Collection. Specifically the eyeshadow trios above. There is a surprisingly high level of pigment in these shadow trios, they blend together beautifully and the colours combinations are fab. Make sure you apply a primer to your eyelid for a longer lasting application. And if you really want to make the colours pop on your eyes, apply a nude coloured cream shadow to the lids first.

The green trio above would create a perfect Halloween party look, the gold/bronze shades are extremely wearable for daytime and complement the gorgeous jewel colours seen everywhere in the high street this season, and the silvery lilac/maroon trio gives a sexy smoky look for evenings.

They are complemented by 3 quick-dry metallic nail colours above, which lasted a full week on my nails despite a thorough bashing while I moved house.

This just goes to prove that you don’t always have to splash a lot of cash on make up. Chosen carefully, there are some real gems on the high street, and the £5.49 price point means you can collect all of them if you want to experiment with your looks. A great buy for the forthcoming party season.
