While my one must have in eye makeup terms is a black Kohl eyeliner, I must admit to a penchant for a touch of colour now and again.
If you're going to splash a little more interest into your makeup, then why not go all out with these fantastic eyeshadow compacts from Urban Decay?
Their Deluxe eyeshadows come in a range of great colours, with a touch of sparkle thrown in for good measure. Use them liberally or for just a hint of hue (especially fab if it matches your shoes!). They even look great on their own with their quirky little grafitti-inspired pot designs.
They're not too pricey for something so sturdy it's bound to give you your moneys worth. Each pot is £12 from Boots.
