Quick Neutral Darling Girl Looks

I’ve been in a bit of a makeup rut lately, and this week I’ve been reaching for my Darling Girl neutrals as they always look super pretty without much effort.

Lid: Darling Girl Mr Ed. Crease: Brown from Sleek Bohemian. Lower Lashline, Darling Girl Midnight Sea.

If you like blurples, get Midnight Sea. I’ve still yet to use it as a lid colour – I’ll get round to it one day! I also need to pop a mini of Mr Ed into my next order. I love lid colours like this.

Lid: Darling Girl A Horse With No Name. Crease: Darling Girl Prancer (v lightly applied.) Liner: Wet N Wild Color Icon Liner in Green.

A really quick two-minute look. A Horse With No Name is just a really fool-proof natural colour. The All The Pretty Horses collection really does have some kick-ass neutrals. Even though I love brights and glitters and unusual duos, I always judge an indie by its netural colours! If it can do those well, I’m sold. It’s so hard to get nice, cheap neutrals in drugstores here.

Lid: Darling Girl Jeweled Taupe. Crease and Lower Lashline: Darling Girl Smoking Gun.

Sorry I only have one photo of this one, it just didn’t want to photograph. If you don’t have Jeweled Taupe, you’re really missing out. It’s super sparkly with lots of pinky-purple shimmer through it. Big love!

What are your favourite indie neutral colours?


  1. Those are gorgeous and wearable eye looks! ^^

  2. So pretty! I like how you made the neutral look more interesting by adding some colour to the lower lashline. ^_^ Jonna xx

  3. You've been doing a bit of the neutral lid with color on the lower lashline. I'm gonna have to try this out! While I tend to think of DG as color and sparkles, Susan does do a good job on neutrals too!

  4. Ooh, these ARE really pretty neutrals! I love neutrals with a bit of a duochrome or iridescent effect; I love Limewire, an old Kat Von D duo that's been discontinued. One that is currently available that I looooove (even more than Limewire!) is Inglot Pearl 402, it's definitely worth checking out. It's the kind of duochrome neutral that looks like a complete, interesting eye look all on it's own. I have pictures up on my blog, but they don't do it justice. I also find myself reaching for Urban Decay's Naked Palette and the single Sellout a lot for neutral looks, although none of those are particularly "unique"; just good solid basics! Yay for neutrals, I have been using them lots lately. I definitely want

    1. I have 402! Lovely lovely shade!

  5. Oooh. Love lilac with your blue eyes!

  6. Jewelled taupe is so pretty! I keep seeing raves about it and can see why.

  7. Oooh, I really like Jeweled Taupe. Lately, I have been dying over a Silk Naturals eyeshadow called Torn Fishnets. It is a dark, sparkly taupe and I WEAR IT WITH EVERYTHING ARGHHGHGHG it is awesome.
